NAPLES, Florida, April 11th 2018– Local law firm, Woodward, Pires & Lombardo, P.A. (WPL) kicks off a new art program, Art.Woodward. The firm will feature a new artist every year and will showcase a local artist’s work in their Naples and Marco Island offices. Founded in 1971, Woodward, Pires & Lombardo, P.A. is one of Collier County’s oldest law firms and assists clients in areas, such as Family Law, Real Estate Law, Government Relations and Elder Law.
WPL is commemorating the Art.Woodward event with a cocktail party for friends and clients at the Naples office on April 25th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. On display will be the work of local Naples artist, and WPL’s chosen artist of this year, Paul Arsenault. Hors d’oeuvres and cocktails will be served in this celebration.
Arsenault grew up in Massachusetts and graduated from the Art Institute of Boston in 1973. For six months he was a deckhand on a research vessel but signed off in Florida to begin his professional painting career. He has since attended painting trips to the Caribbean, Central and South America, Asia, the South Pacific, Indonesia, Australia, Hawaii, Europe, and the Mid-East. Paul and his wife Eileen now live in Naples near Arsenault Studio & Banyan Arts Gallery on 3rd Street. To look at Paul’s portfolio, please visit arsenaultgallery.com.
Zach Lombardo, Associate at WPL, is overseeing the art program. When asked about why this program is so important to him as well as the firm he said,
“We’re trying to bring in artists that generate a lot of value. Music aids in people’s ability to drive, paintings can have the same effect in a working environment. Finding more ways to get artists to do what they are trying to do, which is have an impact on people, that’s what we’re aiming to do.”
