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!"

We purchased a piece of artwork so unique it will remind us of our trip to Islamorada the rest of our lives.

Have bought several reasonably priced mementos at the gallery, large and small - and it's fun to talk with the artist/owners. Their signature style is photographic tiles framed in lobster trap pieces, but there is other fun artwork too.

My husband and I visited The Lobster Trap Art Gallery on our recent vacation to the Keys. We bought several beautiful pieces for our home and even had them signed by the artists themselves. Very friendly staff. We will definitely be visiting again on our next trip to the Keys. Donna and Larry
