We found this gallery advertised in a local paper and are so glad we decided to visit. It was great way to spend our afternoon and we treated ourself to another “memory” of Anna Maria Island.

The gallery has an eclectic collection of art in lots of different mediums, watercolours to cartoons, oils on canvas to pencil sketches.. They also offer pottery, jewellery, stained glass and finer art. We enjoyed the many works of art displayed in two exhibit areas. For us it was like going to an art festival, but in a pleasant, relaxing gallery setting.

Located in the heart of Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island, Island Gallery West is a fine art gallery cooperative of approximately 30 diverse local artists and some regional artists. In business for over 25 years, as an artists’ cooperative it is owned and operated by its members.

There are no paid employees, and each member staffs the gallery once a month.

The gallery offered a nice variety and it was fun to interact with some of the artists and learn about their work. The member artist on duty was happy to help with our selection and visit with us.

The artist welcomed the opportunity to discuss their art with us and were happy to provide some interesting information about the island. Prices were very reasonable, affordable for tourists to high for collectors.

When on vacation we like to buy from local artists to help remember our trip. We were lucky to find the perfect piece and are looking forward to hanging our newest memory with our other vacation artwork.

This gallery is now on our list of must visit whenever we are on the island. Can’t wait to go back and see what other treasured artwork awaits us. We’re sure we left a piece with our name on it!
