Florida-based artist, Myra Roberts is hosting a sneak preview of her most recent masterpiece “Miss Bette’s Sea School” at Lily and Company Jewelers, 520 Tarpon Bay Rd. The painting will be raffled as part of the Sanibel School Fund’s Blue Ribbon Golf Classic hosted at the Sanctuary Golf Club for the benefit of The Sanibel School.

The 30×40-inch acrylic painting titled, “Miss Bette’s Sea School” is inspired by Roberts’ daughter, Bette, who graduated from the Sanibel School. The painting, which took months to complete, features Miss Bette teaching a conservation lesson while holding a shell as a book illustrating the ocean and Florida’s diverse wildlife surrounding the Sanibel Lighthouse.

“Miss Bette’s Sea School”, along with Roberts’ most recent works, will be on display at Lily and Company Jewelers from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 23. The painting, valued at $30,000, will be raffled off May 14 at the Sanibel Community House as part of the after-golf dinner and party to raise funds to support the STEM program at The Sanibel School.

Roberts’ painting, “Miss Bette’s Sea School” will be in rotation on display at the Sanibel Public Library, Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, Sanibel Community House, and the Sanibel School between March 1 and May 13. Online raffle tickets for the painting are priced at $100 and will be available starting March 1. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities for the Blue Ribbon Golf Classic can be secured by contacting
