  • Sea Grape Gallery is pleased to announce Rachel Dolce as our 2017 scholarship winner.  Rachel is a 2017 graduate of Port Charlotte High School. As Rachel explains “I prefer to be called a creator over an artist because the word creator is less self-limiting”. Even at a young age Rachel admired art and had an eye for design and detail. She began taking art classes in her junior year and followed that up with an advanced placement art class in her senior year.  Rachel prefers working in acrylic paint but also works in charcoal and even tape resulting in unpredictable aspects to her artwork.  Rachel believes much of her inspiration comes from the environment and from things that she is passionate about. Rachel’s plans to continue her art interest by attending either the Cleveland Institute of Art in Ohio or Florida International University in Miami. Contact: Bonnie Benande: 941-575-9752 or Visit or find them on Facebook.
