8 Artist Couples Exhibiting in Bonita this Weekend

Ho hum, it is Florida, there is another art fair this weekend. Where is the news in that? EXCEPT - the writer for found the angle, one we all can especially appreciate. Writer Victoria Macchi reports:

After driving hours in a van to get to Southwest Florida, then setting up at the Promenade in Bonita Springs, some artists will be more than chummy with their booth neighbors at the Bonita Springs National Art Festival this weekend.

Following two days of selling art, at least eight couples from around the country will pack up what is left of their stock and head home, together.

The story is about many people you and I know: Allan Teger and partner Barbara Krupp, Robin Washington and partner Sharon Matusiak, Gustavo Castillo and his partner Carmen Lagos and Janet and Steve Rogers.

This is a good story about the life styles of traveling artists. Thanks, Victoria, for finding this interesting angle for your story and sharing this information with your audience, the good people of Bonita and the Naples area.
