Sanibel Island artist works to rebuild art gallery after Hurricane Ian

Published: Updated:

Just nine months after Rachel Pierce got her Sanibel Island art shop and business up and running, Hurricane Ian wiped it out.  

The former Southwest Florida TV news personality-turned-professional artist has restarted everything, using her art as a conduit.  

While renovating the gallery until at least the summer, she can continue to sell her artwork on her website and at pop-up tents. She will also be at McIntosh Books’ store at the Bell Tower Shops in south Fort Myers from 4 to 7 p.m. Dec. 16, and she will sell artwork from noon to 4 p.m. Dec. 17 again at Bell Tower. She anticipates selling her artwork outside and in front of her art gallery after the Sanibel Causeway reopens to non-island passholders Jan. 1.
