Enjoyable visit although we though it a bit pricey at $15 entrance fee as there are actually only nine Ann Norton sculptures, plus a few smaller models in her studio. All the sculptures are very large brick 'gateways' set in a lovely tropical garden, which we enjoyed as much as the sculptures. However, it was disappointing that none of the staff could tell us anything about Norton's inspiration for them and why they were the focus of the garden. You don't need to be an art aficionado to enjoy a visit here and whilst we liked Norton's works, we actually preferred the current temporary sculpture exhibitition by Jim Rennart. Visitors might also like to note that there is small on site cafe - very pretty setting in the garden. Appealing albeit small menu but again quite expensive at set price of $24 for an entree, which includes a small bowl of soup. Free parking is available roadside.

Heard about this at the Norton, decided to check it out. The artisits home turned (outdoor) gallery, located in residential area where the trees softly drip money onto manicured lawns. There's some gallery space inside the home, but more use could be made of it; a few furnishings and you could tour the house (although not huge). A real bonus is the studio - fascinating to see the creative process at work. Spend some time there. The garden is well laid out, whimsical at times, and really a treat - even if monumental sculpture is not your interest, you will enjoy it. Finish with the plastic ocean tent. All set in refined gentility - jazz ensemble on Sundays in season (though 3/1 was the end, I think). One of the ladies manning admission knew a lot about the artist, and was interesting to speak to - but there's a fairly impressive crush of visitors, and though there were two helping out, she was needed at the desk; it would have been nice to continue that conversation for a few more minutes.

First I am going to start by saying we know nothing about art, it is not something we usually would visit. However, being in the area and seeing some good reviews of this location we decided to stop and were not disappointed. The outdoors is a gorgeous well landscaped area and the sculptures were great to view in the setting. We went pretty fast through the indoors exhibits as water painting and ceramics are not our thing, however they were pretty and I am sure many would spend plenty of time reading about each piece. Street parking is free.

We had visited the Norton Museum several times, but had never visited the Ann Norton Sculpture Garden - this year we visited both. I expected the house to be part of the tour, but there is very little to see there; and the house is not really special - but the land is very special with two acres facing the inter-coastal. The garden is a tropical garden with heavy plantings of palms, ferns and other plants. Among these dense tropical gardens are the sculptures, mostly the brick designs of Ann Norton, but also pieces by other artists. The brick Norton pieces are very large, and are perfectly suited to the setting, so this is a good place to view them. It is hard to picture them in a typical museum, both because of their large scale and their rustic character (plain brick). If you like gardens, and like art, the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens is a good combination of the two.

I was so disappointed to arrive here only to find out I couldn't get into the home to see the plastic art because there was a luncheon there that day. It is nice to walk around the garden and backyard.
