ArtCenter Manatee

ArtCenter Manatee is the winner of the 2015 Reader's Choice Award for Best Art Gallery from the Herald Tribune and the 2015 People's Choice Award for Best Gallery from The Bradenton Herald.
Located at the gateway to arts and culture in downtown Bradenton, ArtCenter Manatee is the premier center for visual arts in Manatee County. The nearly 10,000 sq. ft. building features three galleries, five classrooms, an Artists' Market gift shop and an art library featuring over 3,000 art volumes.
Over 300 day, evening and weekend art classes and workshops for adults are offered year round in painting, drawing, pastels, pottery, jewelry design, photography and more. Our KidsArt Summer Camps and After School Programs give students 4-15 the opportunity to express their creativity while they learn valuable skills, have fun and make new friends in over 35 classes designed just for them.
The Artists’ Market features unique, affordable gifts by local artists. Purchases in the Artists’ Market help to support our local artists, subsidize the cost of our classes and support the local economy.
Exhibitions in the three galleries change monthly and showcase the work of over 2,000 local, regional and national artists. Meet the exhibiting artists and art enthusiasts at our monthly evening opening receptions which are always free and open to the public.
ArtCenter Manatee is a proud member of Bradenton Kiwanis and Manatee Chamber of Commerce, and partner with Realize Bradenton.
