Wonderful gallery open daily that always seems to have a unique show. Great for families to visit. Fresh market every Saturday and always something going on in the theater or on the grounds. Great fun!

Went here more than a few years ago when doing a trombone clinic as a student in middle school. The atmosphere is nice there for learning.

The Exhibit was "Altered Book" medium. A great juried exhibition. If you get a change to see this exhibition in another city, do so. There is something going on at the Art for the Arts. Be sure to check out their gift shop.

Be it a juried show or just local artists, this place does amazing things for Fort Myers. Not to mention the after school and summer classes
