On Display: How to Enjoy the Fine Arts in Naples

Naples FL Fine Arts Display

Naples FL Fine Arts Display. Naples, Florida is known as a top tourist destination. One of the major draws of Naples, aside from the beautiful beaches and tropical ecosystems to the world-class dining and high-end shopping, is the remarkable access to the fine arts. The Naples Art District is a cornerstone of cultural and artistic economic development in the city, providing workspaces and exhibit spaces for professional fine artists working in a wide variety of mediums; it features studios and galleries of member artists tucked between showrooms of craftspeople catering to the interior design and decor trades.

The Naples Art District gives artists a place where they can build upon the principles of design they share with their applied arts counterparts. It is a place where fine artists and designers can inspire one another by giving attention to the way art and design both contribute to the aesthetics of a setting or situation. 

The Naples Art District is beneficial to the member artists themselves and the wider community. It provides spaces for studios and galleries, offers increased access to professional development opportunities for artists, and bolsters fine arts educational programming. The District plays a fundamental role in building relationships between fine artists and other community members by connecting them through opportunities for personal expression and the sharing of varied cultural experiences.

There are many ways to enjoy the fine arts in Naples, especially in the Naples Art District. The member artists present art experiences throughout the year, including Art Alive! events which are held on the first Wednesdays and Thursdays, as well as the third Saturdays of every month through May. The next event to be presented in the District is “ARTFUL ARRANGEMENTS: Original Artwork Re-Imagined in Floral Designs,” in late February.

Over the last 15+ years, the Naples Art District has grown and developed as a unique fine arts community where over 85 working visual artists have established their creative homes. This alliance of artmakers offers access to the fine arts in an enthusiastic, but welcoming, unintimidating way. As an officially designated cultural arts tourism destination, the Naples Art District serves locals and visitors from around the world.

Naples FL Fine Arts Display. The Naples Art District, a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization, is home to the largest concentration of working artists in Southwest Florida. The fine artists who maintain their professional studios and galleries in the Naples Art District are able to express their creative juices as they explore their mediums, from painting to photography, jewelry-making to sculpture, and so much more! These member artists of the District share their talents with one another and with the public. The calendar of art events, workshops, and classes is accessible online, at the official website of the Naples Art District, for any art-lovers interested in exploring the fine arts in greater depth.
