About Us


Linda Best

Venice Island Gallery & Gifts, Director


IT IS A TRUE GIFT to be able to stand alongside so many local artists and artisans as we follow our dreams. We are proud to showcase the breath-taking work of new and upcoming artists, as well as that of artists who have spent years studying, refining and nurturing their talents. Using a wide assortment of techniques and media, they have given their very souls to excite the passions of our visitors and patrons, sharing with them their spirit, vision and imaginations.

"Venice Island Gallery & Gifts was created to give our local and surrounding area artists a venue to display

and sell their artwork, and to enrich the cultural life of locals and visitors alike."


October 6th, 2018 was the beginning of a Dream. Venice Island Gallery had our Grand Opening Within just a few months, we became one of the area's biggest and most successful art galleries.

We have now moved into a new space at the corner of Venice Ave. and Tamiami Trail. 100-A West Venice Avenue.

To date, more than 160 local artists have chosen to offer creations exclusively through the Gallery. Their talents span oil, acrylic, watercolor and ink paintings; sculpture; jewelry; handbags; stained glass; note cards and much more. Several artists regularly give demonstrations and offer classes. Occasionally we are able to host special exhibits and sales of works of exceptional beauty from Florida artists outside the immediate Venice community.

Explore our Artist pages to get to know their backgrounds and view a sample of their work. 

Follow us on Facebook to stay informed on special events, seasonal hours and additions to our growing family of talented locals.

Most of all, please visit regularly, meet the artists and experience the world around you through their eyes.
