AlexArt International Art Gallery is located at N Pineapple Avenue in downtown Sarasota. It is not a large gallery, but the art works exhibited there are fascinating.

The talented artists whose works are currently displayed in this gallery, create unforgettable images of nature, people, landscapes, objects of reality, objects of artists imagination, etc. These images are created superbly by using unbelievably and strikingly enhanced colors, and modern painting/fine art photography techniques (like 3D fluorescent paintings), as well as by more traditional techniques.

When I visited the gallery in May, there were fantastic works there by contemporary Italian artists. I was mesmerized by all their paintings. Especially memorable for me were 'Marylin Diamonds', 'Audrey Saphhires', 'Call Me a Dreamer', 'Pink Beauty' by Fabio Dal Boni, 'Wave' and 'Sunflowers' by Massimo Meda, and beautiful oil on canvas paintings depicting unforgettable views of Venice by Guido Borelli ('Venezia, Grand Canal' and 'Vernazza').

In my view, the owner of the gallery Alexa Scanziani is doing an invaluable job, by bringing ultra-modern art to the view and admiration of people - to those who know art, to those who love and appreciate art, to those who want to learn more about the ever-lasting, timeless beauty of art and about world cultures.

Totalmente affascinante.

Grazie mille!

As others have said, the art in this gallery is breath-taking. My friends and I passed it on the way walking from dinner to FST. We were stopped in our tracks by the brilliant colors of the art all lit up at night. Unfortunately, the gallery was closed, but it was worth a view from the outside.

The paintings of flowers and sea life are astonishing. The artist is from Italy and has studios in Milan, Portofino, China, and now this one in Sarasota. He makes his own paint, which accounts for the vibrant colors and ability to build layers to create the 3-dimensional effects.

My sister, who paints in acrylics and watercolor, was so entranced that she vowed to come back when it was open to get a closer look. This place is well worth a short visit, even a pass-by, whether you are interested in art or not. It's so unique that adults and children alike will be fascinated with the work.

Incredible 3D effect for these paintings! If you look for something new and unexpected go visit this wonderful art gallery. The owner is friendly and art expert. She gave us a complete description about the unique painting technique of this artist. We would love to have one in our house. Thanks!

An art gallery that is quite different. The works are incredibly ingenious and like no others -- some 3D and others printed on aluminum with creative artistic renderings of photographic beginnings. There is nothing ordinary. We also like the other Italian works and purchased an original draft nude drawing of Guido Pajetta. Interesting shop and fascinating Fabio who is the originator of an interesting artistic technique that is displayed throughout the shop. Enjoyed the visit!

I had the distinct pleasure of visiting this amazing art gallery two weeks ago. A variety of art "pieces" by some amazing artists of today.
The owner's husband has his works prominently displayed. And what a display it is!!
He was on the premises when I viewed the gallery. Very affable, he politely explained to me how he created his unique photographic works of art. Taking his time and describing, in detail, the "process" he uses to capture the images on aluminum.
There are also works by many other artists. Each is extremely unique and, in many cases, NOTHING like you have ever seen before.
I purchased a couple of his works and they are now proudly hanging in my house.
These images were VERY beautiful and INEXPENSIVE! Of course, he has numerous others that were out of my price range.
Treat yourself to spending an hour, or so, visiting this beautiful gallery and talking with a true artist!
