Florida Artists in Their Element in Port Salerno

By: Jodi Mailander Farrell


Weavers, glass artists, fine art painters and jewelry artists are among the Florida artists visitors can watch in action at the Fish House Art Center, just five miles south of downtown Stuart

Located on the site of one of the last operating commercial fish houses on Florida's east coast, in the scenic Manatee Pocket of the historic fishing village of Port Salerno, the waterfront center is home to eight resident artists' studios. Along with Kelly and Disbrow, there are fine art painters and silk artists who create wearable art.

The resident artists work year-round in their studios, where the public is welcome to watch them work and purchase their creations. Visitors can also take classes with some of the artists. 

Art Gumbo, a fine art and craft gallery at the front of the Fish House, features other local artists’ works in painting, sculpture, glass, textiles, pottery, photography, jewelry, and giftware.
