Galleries

Take a moment to stroll through the galleries that make their home in Sarasota County. Both local and visiting artists display their talents in exhibitions and galleries throughout the year. If visitors come on the right day, they may even catch an opening night or get the opportunity to meet the artist.

Several art centers also call Sarasota home. Art Center Sarasota offers creative opportunities that are affordable and accessible to the entire community with approximately 27 exhibitions,100 classes and educational programs for youth and adults and special events each year. The Englewood Art Center  and the Longboat Key Art Center are part of Ringling College Art+ Design offers classes and exhibitions throughout the year. The Venice Art Center is another gem with annual exhibitions, openings and classes. If an inner artists is calling, guests can try their hand at the pottery-painting studio The Artful Giraffe.


Local galleries such as the Palm Fine Art Gallery, Art Uptown Gallery, Sarasota’s only co-op, Allyn Gallup Gallery and State of the Arts Gallery in downtown Sarasota provide a broad cultural canvas for art connoisseurs to peruse, while galleries such as the madeby gallery in the Rosemary District and Clothesline 529 Gallery in Burns Square showcase the cutting edge work of Ringling College of Art + Design graduates and members of Sarasota contemporary art collective, s/ART/q. Galleries such as Clyde Butcher Art Gallery and Collectors Gallery & Framery take up residence in Venice.
