The Captiva Civic Association presents “Douglas David Paints Seascapes and Florals” 
Art Exhibition & Opening Reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Captiva Civic Center, Chapin Lane. The Reception will feature new works of the well-known local artist and include live music, a donation bar and light hors d'oeuvres.  
 
Douglas David has painted his way across the country, capturing the beauty and spirit of the things he loves – tranquil country landscapes, sunrises and sunsets on his favorite beaches, a simple pitcher of spring lilacs or peonies, a lemon, lime or a slice of watermelon on a checked tablecloth. Paintings that reflect comfort, warmth meaning and simplicity: similar to everything important to him – his close-knit family, life-long friendships, creatively fulfilling work and giving his best. A recipient of numerous regional and national awards and honors, Douglas’ teaching is a way of giving back and sharing some of his journey with those who choose to study with him.  
 
"Afternoon with the artist, Douglas David"
 
The roll of the wave, the power of the crash and the sparkle of the wash back. Join Douglas as he demos the principles in his teaching and how he builds a wave, captures the light, the shadow, the colors in the wash back and paints a seascape oil. A wonderful demo and afternoon not to miss! This demo begins 2 p.m. March 21 at the Captiva Civic Center. No charge for admission but seating is limited. For reservations, please call the CCA Office at (239) 472-2111).    
 
This exhibit runs through March 7 and is open to the public on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays from 11am to 1pm or by appointment by calling 239-472-2111.
