I am a permanent member of Art Uptown Gallery in Sarasota, one of Florida's oldest cooperative fine arts gallery, representing the work of some 30 area artists. Abstract, realistic and expressionistic work is offered in acrylic, collage, art glass, textile, oil, pastel, photography, watercolor, fine art pottery, jewelry and digital art. The member artists change the work on display monthly, so visiting is always a fresh experience.
Located at 1367 Main Street in downtown Sarasota, Art Uptown provides a unique opportunity to see the work of a finely juried group of area artists. Continuously exhibiting the work of its members since 1980, the gallery presents not only regionally flavored paintings and photography but also creative compositions in ceramic, porcelain, raku and fused glass that have been collected and shipped throughout the country and internationally.
The monthly First Friday Gallery Walks on Palm Avenue and Main Street offer a wonderful opportunity to visit the gallery and meet many of the member artists.
