Garry Scott Wheeler

I am a multi-award-winning international abstract acrylic artist, published author, and entrepreneur. Fans of my work have told me that looking at my art is comparable to lying on their backs, looking up at the clouds and trying to interpret the shapes that they see. I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a whole lot of fun to me!

I am the Board President and Member of Marco Center for the Visual and Performing Arts. I am also a member of the United Artists of Collier and the Bayshore Art District in Naples.

Past President of the Art Council of Southwest Florida (ACSWF) which is an "umbrella" 501(c)(3) organization consisting of 21 art associations, 2 COCO Art Galleries and over 6,000 member artists and craftspeople.
