The Sanibel Captiva Art League has kicked off its 12th annual fundraiser with the help of Bailey’s General Store on Sanibel, which donates its store bags, storefront and lots of support.

On display at the store are more than 20 reusable canvas bags hand-painted by SCAL members, which people can bid on during February in a silent auction that will benefit F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva.

The first year the fundraiser was held, the artists painted on paper bags and filled them with groceries. With the advent of reusable bags, the SCAL switched. The bags are primed like regular painting canvas. The artists then paint their masterpieces, seal the surface, and the bags are ready for display.

In the face of the pandemic, chairwoman Donna Filomio and a collaboration of civic-minded community members persevered to make the fundraiser prevail.
