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!"

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

Cool idea of husband and wife team. They photograph the sea and it's inhabitants and then frame them using old wooden lobster traps. There, also, are many reef themed paintings for sale. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Recommended

They have some of the coolest pictures. We spent probably 30 minutes looking around. The artist and work displayed is awesome. Well worth a stop to check it out.

we stopped in here while we were in Islamorada and they had some of the most beautiful artwork. Very friendly, and if you stop by make sure you pin the location you are from, I thought this was a wonderful idea so,you can see where other people are from that had visited there.

When visiting the Middle Keys make sure you stop here. The shop is full of art, glass, and jewelry made from local artists. There are a lot of sea life pictures and the artist is a snorkeler/diver so they are very realistic and beautiful. It was also nice that the artist where working in the shop so were available to...
