About
At Watson's Art Gallery we take custom orders on furniture, sculpture and art. We have exciting, unique classes happening at Watson's Art Gallery. These classes are painting a 3D piece of art. Artist Gil Watson hand carves the original and each student gets a mold from the original to paint. Gil Watson will present this class and teach you through a series of painting techniques to create a wonderful piece of art. This class is for any skill set, we welcome beginners to accomplished painters. The class is $45/person and this includes everything, art piece, paints, art lesson etc Just bring your wine!

We had trouble finding this place because the sign - although large - is in the middle of two other signs and not very visible. Glad we went inside because there's so much to see, admire and wonder about. Owners are charming and even gave me tips on the best places to fish in and near Homosassa. Always something different to see. Good for all ages and great on Art Walk Night in March.

A couple fair local artist's work displayed for sale but mostly "arts and crafts" level kinda stuff. Priced right for that quickie gift item. Proprietor's a quirky little bloke whom appears to have many irons in the fire.

My dad's a tough guy to get a birthday present for. Always says he doesn't need anything, doesn't want anything. Then I heard about Watson's Art Gallery from a friend who thought my dad would like the place and surely there would be something that would catch his interest. Well, my dad and I both loved the place and we left with several great finds.

Highly recommend you visit Watson's Art Gallery. The owners are great people. No sales pressure at all. The variety of art, crafts and gift items is endless with a price range starting at a few dollars to gorgeous hand carved furniture and art pieces.

An absolute MUST visit for anyone who enjoys the arts as a whole. They have provided a wonderful place for local artists to come and display their work.
Every type of medium you can think of is used in this place. I absolutely adore the wood work the owner himself does.
I have stopped by many times and there is always new work to see and even work for sale. You are guaranteed to walk in to a smiling face and welcoming words.

Now they have art classes and soon there will be art classes for children.

I honestly cannot get enough of this place and if I ever hit the lottery I'd buy half of the art work in the place and of course some special ordered wood work!!
Don't take my word for it. Stop on in and check it out for yourself! Tell them Nena sent ya!

This is a great place and the owners are so friendly. They made us an end table with a hand painted fish on it. We also bought one of their unusual signs.Can't wait to go back and see what is new!

Love nights a bunch of our friends get together and head over to Watson's. Gil and his wife are super nice. Bring your own drinks.. and really learn how to paint 3D art. Gil is a very talented artist and walks you through painting, focusing on light and darkness. It is a awesome class to take. We have been about 5 times so far.

I LOVE taking classes here!! Get some friends together, book a class.. bring your own wine, beer or beverage of choice.. and be amazed at what you didn't know you could do.
Gil will teach you how to paint 3D pieces, using light and shadowing in your work. Not only will you leave with a great piece, but it is so much fun, and you have all your friends with you.
I can't wait for our next class!! We have taken 4 or 5 already.. what a neat night out, close to home.

Art Galleries and Studios just don't get any better than this one. The owners, Gil and Wendy Watson along with their 3 children are a delightful family who make you feel right at home. Gil is master of many genres including an incredible gift for making an ordinary piece of wood come to life. His custom bars, statutes, tables, cabinets and other wood-carved items are all extraordinary masterpieces. Another facet of this studio is the exciting, fun and unique classes. Similar to a paint & wine class, but with a 3-dimensional art piece molded from an original Gil Watson sculptured signature piece. (watsons3d.com) Last, but definitely not least, is the Watson's sense of community. Gil and Wendy have contributed their time and talent to many worthy local causes such as the Homosassa Learning Center, Homosassa Civic Club, and the Old Homosassa Heritage Council.
I highly recommend a visit to Watson's Art Gallery & Studio whether it be to browse the many pieces of work displayed, commission an original piece, take a 3D art class, or to purchase a piece of art as a gift or for yourself that will be forever treasured.
