Zirzow is known for her colorful, ocean life artwork and this exhibition will introduce the attendants of the exhibition to a bold new style that Amanda has been working on for the past year. This will be the first time a complete collection of her skeleton style of art will be together in one place for all to enjoy. An opening reception is scheduled for October 7th at 6:00 pm so any avid art collectors and connoisseurs are welcome to be the first to see the collection and to meet the artist in person.

“Vincent” by Amanda Zirzow

“Amanda Zirzow has been a staple in the Southwest Florida art scene since she started showing her art.” Said Cesar Aguilera, the Art Curator for the Sidney Berne Davis Art Center “Her art has always been a favorite during SBDAC exhibitions, especially during Dark Art, not only for her great skills as an artist but her great symbolism and meaningful pieces. We are very thrilled to host her solo exhibition at the Capital Gallery during Dark Art 2022 and I’m sure this exhibition will be a highlight of our 2022 – 2023 season.”

Amanda Zirzow stated “I am proud and excited to display my all-original X-Ray Expressionism artwork at Sidney Berne Davis Art Center in the Capital Gallery in conjunction with the Dark Arts exhibition downstairs. I am pleased to invite all my friends, family, and any interested art lovers to my opening reception on Friday, October 7th from 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM, to view and discuss the techniques and inspiration behind my art.”

About the Sidney Berne Davis Art Center

The Sidney Berne Davis Art Center is a prominent part of the Fort Myers River District history. Started as a post office in 1933, then a federal courthouse in 1960, but the Art Center did not become the centerpiece of downtown Fort Myers as an art facility until 2003, when the abandoned building was acquired by Jim Griffiths and Florida Arts, Inc. Then in 2007, Berne Davis pledged $1 million to Florida Arts, Inc. for the building’s restoration. In honor of the Davis family contribution, the building was renamed the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. Today, the Sidney Berne Davis Art Center and the rooftop sculpture garden and reception area are the hub of art in Fort Myers.
