Jim Storer, a local physician and artist, has had 20 pieces of his artwork on display at the Sanibel Public Library - 770 Dunlop Road, Sanibel, throughout March and April. The exhibit will continue to run through the rest of April.

Storer is a member of the San-Cap Art League. He started taking lessons in watercolors in anticipation of retirement, later switching to using acrylic paint exclusively, according to the Sanibel Public Library on Facebook.

"In my paintings I try to convey a feeling of peace and tranquility," Storer says, as quoted on the library's Facebook page. "My greatest pleasure has been learning from Rita Skoczen, a fabulous artist, with international credentials.”

The Sanibel Library has been recognized as one of the best libraries in the country with a continual 5-star rating. It has been consistently on the top of the list of places to visit on Sanibel and is the original home to the San-Cap Art League's exhibits.

This exhibit came to the library thanks to the support of the library's executive director Margaret Mohundro and her staff, according to an article on

Storer's work kicked off the 2021-22 season at the library, with a plethora of exhibits to come. In May and June, the work of award-winning artist Peter Zell will be on display. As for Storer, his work will move on to The Community House Sanibel Community Association - 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.
