Artist Michael Moukios at the Promenade

Many of our parishioners know Michael Moukios from St. Katherine’s and St. Paul’s. For those of you who don’t know Michael (or his lovely wife Catherine), read the biography below to learn more about Michael and his talents. Michael paints beautiful paintings and has a small studio set up at the Promenade (near E. Terry and 41 — see map)

Michael’s first career in the arts was advertising and marketing, creating imagery for major department stores and major advertising firms in Manhattan. Throughout his 25-year career he never lost sight of his love for the fine arts. Now retired, Michael enjoys spending more time painting the world around him, working mostly in oils on canvas. He’s received a number of awards for his paintings in Southwest Florida as well as New York, and Rhode Island. Open 10 AM – 3 PM Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, the Artists Studios at the Promenade are a collaborative project of the Art League of Bonita Springs and the Promenade. The last Thursday of each month, they are open from 4 to 7 PM.

The Antiochian Women are organizing an evening to celebrate the art of Michael Moukios. Please join us on Thursday, August 27th at 5:30 PM at the Promenade in Bonita Springs (see map) to tour the gallery and enjoy Michael’s art

Following the gallery tour, tables will be reserved at the Silver Spoon Restaurant (in the Promenade) for dinner.

Sign up in the Vestibule (if you go to St. Paul’s) or email Diane Shaheen (diane_shaheen@comcast.net).
