Aldo Castillo Gallery

A wonderful contemporary art gallery opened on Naples' 5th Avenue South two months ago.


The Aldo Castillo Gallery started in Chicago and relocated to Southwest Florida eight years ago.  It was in the Miromar Design Center in Estero (between Fort Myers and Naples) before the new gallery was opened on Naples' leading shopping street.  I photographed through the front window.  Still slow to enter places . . .

The central figure above is the creation of Metis Atash.   It is made from thousands and thousands of Swarovski Crystals.

The Naples Players

 The Sugden Theatre on Fifth Avenue South in Naples is suffering like other live performance venues.

It is offering some socially distanced events for youth, but that's all.

A woman with pink, white and blue dyed hair, a brightly colored top and a sparkly mask walked past.


So, of course I stopped her.  At first she was hesitant but then Barb gamely posed for me.
