3 Great Art Galleries to Visit When You Live on Marco Island
Artist Colony at the Esplanade
The Artist Colony at the Esplanade consists of 3 different shops: Rightside Studios, Portside Studio, and Waterfront Gallery. Collage, concrete art, digital art, painting, photography, and pottery are some of the art forms represented at these studios. The Art Colony is open Wednesdays through Saturdays.
The Esplanade is a waterfront bank of shops, professional offices, salons, and fine dining restaurants that each face a central promenade on Marco Island’s Smokehouse Bay. Marco Island has a vibrant arts community that hosts several art shows each year.
Marco Island Foundation for the Arts
The Marco Island Foundation for the Arts supports the literary, visual, and performing arts through public arts events, but it also showcases local talent at its offices and gallery. Located at the Esplanade, the Foundation offers scholarships to young artists, chooses an artist of the year, and otherwise encourages the arts and a sense of community on Marco Island.
Tycoon International Art Gallery, Inc.
A third gallery located at the Esplanade, Tycoon International Art Gallery specializes in classic and contemporary art. This gallery was established in 2013.
