The Sanibel Captiva Art League and The Sanibel Public Library have announced a historical art exhibit, A Brush with History, that will feature archived photos from the library that will be paired with local artists’ creative interpretations. Artwork cannot be larger than 16”x 20” and should reflect the photo that the artist has selected.

Interested artists can go onto the library’s website and browse the vast archival photos in the Digital Archive section. Please notify Beth Jarrell at the Sanibel Library at once a photo is chosen to get permission and fill out a form. The event will take place in February 2022. Deadline for artwork submissions is tentatively set for Dec. 31. For more details or information about this exhibit, contact event chairperson Steve Saari at
