Art Uptown Gallery is Sarasota's oldest artist-owned fine arts gallery representing the work of approximately 30 area artists, who have suceeded at the regional, and sometimes national, level. Abstract, realistic and expressionistic work is offered in acrylic, collage, textile, oil, photography, watercolor, fine art jewelry, fiber, fine art pottery and digital art. The member artists change out their work on display monthly so that visiting the gallery is always a fresh experience.
Artists greet the public at Sarasota's First Friday Gallery Walks, receptions for featured solo artist exhibits, and many other special events. On the last Saturday of the month in season, gallery members set up sidewalk demonstrations and welcome the public to watch "Artists in Action."
Gallery hours year round are Monday-Friday 11am-5pm and Saturday 10am-4pm. Additional hours in season are Friday 6pm-9pm and Sunday 12noon-4pm.
