Some of the painted bags, on display at Bailey's General Store.

The Sanibel-Captiva Art League has created more than 40 spectacular pieces of artwork, which is on display at Bailey’s General Store and has been attracting some very high bids in the silent auction to benefit F.I.S.H. (Friends In Service Here) of Sanibel.

Under the coordination of Marcy Calkins of the Sanibel-Captiva Art League, this is the second year that they have used Bailey’s General Store green recycle grocery bags as their canvas, creating some wonderful artistic creations.

The proceeds from the silent auction will go to F.I.S.H. of Sanibel, the non-profit volunteer organization assisting Sanibel and Captiva islanders and visitors with a wide range of services.

The F.I.S.H. Walk-In Center is located at 1630 Periwinkle Way, Unit B (next to Pfeifer Realty Group) on Sanibel and is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. They may be contacted at 472-4775.

The Sanibel-Captiva Art League is a non-profit organization formed to promote public interest in and appreciation of the fine arts. They strive to create art and grow through critiques and sharing of their art. The Art League sponsors competitions and exhibitions and is engaged in promoting art education and supporting community art.
