The Lobster Trap Art Gallery is a unique gallery full of colorful art from Nadine and Glenn Lahti and other local artists from the Florida Keys. Our artists have created hundreds of original works and our frame shop has constructed thousands of hand built and custom lobster trap frames, made from original lobster trap wood, since 2003. With bright tropical colors and island music playing, come see why this gallery is the epitome of "Island Life". Visit our website to see our online gallery and do more shopping. You don't have to live on the islands to lead the "Island Lifestyle!"

Art was very cool. I like the way they artfully recycled stuff. Will make sure I get a pic or two for my moms before I leave Islamorada.

We first met Glen & Nadine at Robbie's 8 years ago, fell in love with their use of lobster traps for frames. At that time that was about all they were doing at that time; we bought a small frame with a spiny lobster but asked to fi they would custom build a lobster trap mirror for our RV, which... More

Thank you so much for your review and telling everyone we are a "must stop" in the Keys! Robbie's is where we got started over 13 years ago and we are still there. I know you stopped at our newest gallery in downtown Islamorada where we have now been for 6 years. Time flies! I am glad you still like... More

We stopped in when we were in Islamorada to do some shopping at some stores, we heard about this place and had to stop in. I love that they use old lobster traps as frames. Something that local artists are doing. Stop in and enjoy the art and take something home. We did.

I have not yet been to the Keys but plan on it very soon. I met this couple at the Delray Affair today on Delray Beach Fl. The story behind the frames is really neat and it adds a personal history story to your decor. Since I have not been to the Keys yet (recently moved to FL from Denver),... More

The art here is done by two artists, so the selection is limited to one style. Staff tend to follow you around the store which always makes me feel uncomfortable.

LobsterTrapArt, Owner at Lobster Trap Art Gallery, responded to this review

Nadine and I do all the paintings in the gallery but we do have so much more!! There is metal sculpture, several types of jewelry, hand made candles, locally made chocolate, ceramics, 3-d artwork, wood carvings, and a whole lot more. I am sorry our selection was not to your liking. We really do try to have something for everyone.... More

We stopped in recently and the kids enjoyed seeing most of the wildlife that we had bend seeing during our week in Islamorada. Everyone made a favorite choice and the employees were helpful. They even set up for an image to be made in a different size and shipped home for my son. Thank you for the great costumer service!

My wife and I stopped into this art gallery on our way down to Key West and were pleasantly surprised. All of the artwork inside was very Keys appropriate (brightly colored, marine life paintings and nautically themed). The best part was that after browsing and chatting with the owners, Nadine and Glenn, Glenn personally signed one of his pieces for... More
