The Sanibel-Captiva Art League announces an exhibition of original artwork by Keith Johnson and David Tompkins throughout July from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Sanibel Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way.

Johnson has been a working artist most of his life. First as a professional photographer and now as a fine art painter. He is an award-winning watercolor painter who does most paintings on location. Plein air painting is direct and does not allow for fussiness which suits his style.

Tompkins FIDSA, an award-winning industrial designer, grew up in New York City and graduated from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn.
