This is an eclectic place. I love that actual art meets tattooing art. They have live shows all the time and have craft beer onsite. Take time to visit something out of the norm. You will be delighted that you did.

These guys understand what it takes to run an art gallery and have brought New York and Los Angeles style, high-quality art to Fort Myers in a way that no one else has been able to replicate. Howl Gallery has created a very hip "art scene" in a town that was devoid of one before. If you love Juxtapoz, "Pop... More

I went to HOWL Gallery for a work department Christmas party, and was surprised at how professional and hip the overall setting was. I myself got an impromptu tattoo that same night from one of the artists, and I am still in love months later. This is a great place to see both 2d art and body art.

I've been to the Howl gallery about a half dozen times over the last year. It has been good to see the addition of craft beer, an environment conducive to conversation and fabulous art. The opening about every month where the exhibits change are our favored times. Oh yes, don't forget that there are highly professional artist willing to ink... More

Nice gallery with very unique art. We enjoyed meeting the featured artist and discussing his art style during the Art Walk night. There is a good assortment of art and things for sale and the art changes often.

Not all the art in this cutting edge gallery is inked on the skin. They have great art exhibits that change every month or so. We've seen some really cool things here and met some amazing artists struggling to work in what is largely a cultural backwater. A highlight was an exhibit of sideshow art and freak show photographs.

Thank you Matt Lackey for taking a tattoo I've always hated and turning it into something beautiful and meaningful. You took an ugly cross and turned it into something that honored my deceased son. How do you say thank you for giving such a gift?! I am highly recommending this gallery and specifically Matt.
