Your eyes might be drawn to a certain booth during the annual Island Art Days celebration, coming up Saturday, April 7 and Sunday, April 8 in downtown Boca Grande. That’s because bright colors and unexpected shapes are hallmarks of Scott Causey's artwork.
“I specialize in animals,” he said. “Many people make the assumption that my work is metal or glass because of the finish, but it is all ceramic. After I sculpt them, I break them apart and paint each piece separately. Then I put them back together like a puzzle.”
Dr. David Hayes and his wife, Patty, were the winners of a sunset cruise aboard the Hilarium, a vessel owned by Peter and Ginny Nicholas, and they took advantage of that cruise on March 14 with 16 other couples.
The trip was originally won during an auction at the Boca Grande Woman’s Club Black and White Ball. As a result of events like the Black and White Ball, the Woman’s Club was able to offer 25 scholarships this year, and was also able to support numerous other not-for-profit organizations on the island.
The Hayes’, the Nicholas’ and their 32 generous guests were treated to a Greek-themed gourmet dinner in a setting that included plenty of libations, Greek music and a fabulous sunset.
