There has been another art festival this weekend, this time at Riverside Park in Bonita Springs.
Nicario Jimenez is a Peruvian artist who now works in Naples. He crafts "retablos,"
portable boxes filled with brightly colored figurines arranged into intricate scenes.
One of Jimenez's retablos is in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution.
John Cheer is a Pennsylvania-based ceramics artist. His works generally have smooth textures and are reminiscent of life forms. Several of the works in his booth were based on stingrays.
Even though he lives in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts and has never been to Asia,
David Bryce's artworks -- drawings in clay and sculptures -- are based on traditional Chinese figures.
William Kidd is a ceramics artist who creates colorful works that are from his imagination but seem alive. He describes them as "life forms that might exist in some worldly place."
