Attraction details
Owner description: Lovegrove Gallery & Gardens is the international headquarters for Florida artist, Leoma Lovegrove and one of the most colorful destinations in the sunshine state. The gallery showcases Lovegrove's original art and it is here where you can step into her techinicolor world of tropical artistic flair and experience the authentic island style life of an artist. Paint your own Florida souviner in her world famous botanical waterfront gardens (Paint and brushes included). Or paint your very own coconut postcard to keep or mail back home (no box needed- mails as is). You can also paint your own painting in the garden with the help of Vino's Picasso (Seasonal Nov-April). You can also enjoy homemade ( "Love Boat Ice Cream")ice-cream right out of a real coconut shell and guess what? You can keep the shell and take it back home to remind you of the happy memories you made while visiting one of Florida's most popular historic landmarks and destinations. Sunday's with Tucke, (Jim Tucke, the musical genius and Beatles historian) begin in December and her performs every Sunday through March. Hours for the live music is 2 pm - 5 pm. The event is FREE. Leoma's private studio and guest cottage is adjacet to the gallery so chances are you see Leoma busy painting a canvas or planting a flower or beating on her drum on the garden stage.

“Art Gallery”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

Whenever we have friends visit we take them here. Also when we have too much money we go here to get rid of some of the nasty stuff on very neat local type stuff.

“Ok it was colorful but Leoma is RUDE!”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Big deal. Saw this place in a Coastal Living magazine and thought it was worth a visit. While the art was art, the owner was RUDE! My wife tried talking her and she just didn't give a crap. Way to go Leoma, treat your fellow artists and customers like garbage.
