Attraction details
Owner description: Nestled in the heart of Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island, Island Gallery West  is a fine art gallery cooperative of about 30 local and regional artists — many unique to the area. The gallery has a 20-plus-year history of offering original watercolor, acrylic, oil, and mixed-media paintings, photography, jewelry, pottery, stained glass and fiber art. Every month a different artist is featured with a special exhibit of their newest work. During the winter/spring season from November through April, the gallery hosts public receptions for the monthly featured artist. These receptions are part of the Holmes Beach ARTWALK that includes several other art galleries and boutiques. Also during high season, from January to early April, member artists present free art demonstrations of various media and techniques every Saturday morning at the gallery. These events are very popular and have developed a wide following.Island Gallery West maintains a website with a dedicated page for each member artist to show examples of currently available work. The website also lists an updated schedule of current and upcoming events. As an artists’ cooperative, the Island Gallery West is owned and operated by its members. Six days a week the gallery is staffed by member artists who welcome the opportunity to discuss their art with you. Stop by for a pleasant, relaxing visit and enjoy the many fine works of art on display in two exhibit areas. You’ll discover all the variety and visual stimulation of an art festival in a pleasant gallery setting.

Very different canvas oil impressions of water movement using textures. Friendly studio, helpful and willing to advise on personal preference.
