The Marco Island Historical Museum is pleased to host The Everglades Art of Hannah Ineson, watercolor and oil paintings that will be on display from October 1, 2013 through December 28, 2013. A free wine and cheese opening reception, sponsored by the Marco Island Historical Society, will be held on Tuesday October 1, 2013 from 5 PM to 7 PM in the Marco Island Historical Museum.
The Florida watercolors and oil paintings of Hannah Ineson were in part inspired by the poetic words of Marjorie Stoneman Douglas’ 1947 book, The Everglades, River of Grass. Excerpts from the book accompany the paintings while on display.
Like the text, the paintings are intended to evoke emotions in the viewer. Ineson paints and teaches both in Maine and Florida, and her work reflects a passionate commitment to the natural wild landscape found in these two very different environments.
