Painters will also be set up near Palm Cottage, in Crayton Cover and on the beach near the pier.

A few days later, from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, March 18, Sea Salt restaurant will host the traditionally spirited auction during which all the finished and freshly framed paintings will be sold to the highest bidders, with Naples City Councilman and former Mayor Bill Barnett serving as celebrity auctioneer.

Tickets to the auction are $125 per person. Proceeds benefit the Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. Call 343-6950 to purchase tickets or for more information.
