Lovegrove paints furniture pieces at Art Walk

Karen Moran, owner of Magnet Social Media in Matlacha, collaborated with her two clients and Matlacha artisans for Fort Myers Art Walk last Friday night.

Leoma Lovegrove of Lovegrove Gallery & Gardens and Frank Schooley of Terrapeg's eco-friendly furniture joined forces to paint live in the main window of The Franklin Shops in downtown Fort Myers. While Lovegrove was only scheduled to paint until 8 p.m., she painted past 10 p.m. as crowds gathered all night.

Hundreds of passers-by stopped and admired as Lovegrove wore her signature white glasses and danced as she morphed Terrapeg's furniture into one-of-a-kind colorful pieces. Watchers even stopped to snap pictures of themselves in white glasses Leoma painted on the window of The Franklin Shops.
