Our Guild has ONE MORE show this season. YAY! We will be exhibiting at the COCO Gallery at Coconut Pointe Mall which is one of the two galleries run by the Art Council of Southwest Florida. Receiving is May 3rd. This is a GREAT selling opportunity because COCO has lots traffic and is a large, well-lit exhibit space . The Art Council will handle your sales and takes only 30% of your sales. The prospectus will be available at the April 15th but for now... SEE THE FLYER BELOW
