THE ARTS ADVOCATES GALLERY

For the first time since its founding in 1969, Arts Advocates has its own gallery to display works from our private collection and to host community events. The gallery is open to the public every Saturday from 2:00-5:00 pm.

OPENING EXHIBIT

The opening exhibit at the Arts Advocates Gallery features 17 works from our collection of renowned works by the Sarasota Colony of Artists who, in the 1920s, began migrating to Sarasota inspired by its natural beauty. They were also drawn by the arrival of noted art collector John Ringling, whose colorful and dynamic circus acts inspired many paintings and sculptures.

Over the years, our works of art have been on display at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and will continue to be shown there as well. 

The exhibit is open to the public every Saturday from 2:00-5:00 pm. No appointment is required. Written information is available for self-guided tours. 

Docent-guided tours of the exhibit are open to the public at 11:00 am on the first Wednesday of each month. Tours are $10 per person and can be booked here. Attendance is limited to 10.

Group and special tours can be arranged through Stephenie Frasher, docent team leader, at stephfrash@comcast.net or by calling 443-454-2206
