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!"

Went there twice in one trip! The artists, Glenn and Nadine were there. It's a fun place and the art depicts true Florida! Worth the stop!

Conveniently located in the heart of Islamorada and run by very nice people. A variety of items from which to select; nothing outstanding, merely souvenirs.

I love photography and when I found out there is a place to buy lobster trap frames to match my scenery prints, I could not help myself and go searching. These frames are well made and look excellent in any house or business. Thanks a lot and I will continue to do business! Plus the customer service is top notch.

Very friendly and helpful, with lots of gift ideas and prints. We did buy a couple of things to take back home with us. Store layout is nice...makes it easy to take it all in. I wish there were more photography prints, instead of the bright vivid paintings...just my personal taste.

Today is my birthday and I just received a lovely Lorelei piece from my sister to add to my collection. And when I called to thank her, I realized just how special Lobster Trap Art and their employees are. You see, my sis recently had a stroke and it has effected her speech.

We stopped in the Lobster Trap Art Gallery after breakfast while on vacation and discovered a much larger than originally thought, well appointed gallery with a great variety of locally made unique art work!

The art is unique and ranges in price. The frames are made out of old lobster trap wood for a nautical feel. The staff are willing to work with you and create a custom piece. The large giclee works are really nice.
