This exhibition features the works of Chris Calle, Paul Calle, and Alan Bean. American artist Chris Calle's works have appeared on US commemorative stamps, and his father, Paul Calle, was the only artist with the Apollo 11 crew on launch day. Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean walked on the moon on the second lunar landing mission. The life experiences of these men led to a love of space and a love of art which are celebrated in this exhibition.

On the last day of the exhibition, May 15, there will be a free closing reception with refreshments from 5 to 7 p.m. All the art will be for sale. Portions of the sale of art will go to the following organizations: The Boys & Girls Club, The Salvation Army Fran Cohen Youth Center, The Naples Players Children's Theater Program for scholarships, the Naples Press Club journalism scholarships and Marco Island Center for the Arts. Prices for art range from $165 to $645.
