The Hospitality & Travel Networking Group

Naples, FL – On Wednesday, May 3, the Hospitality & Travel Networking Group was part of a special VIP tour in the Naples Art District. This curated tour included a meet-and-greet with the artists at four galleries along Shirley Street, a live painting demo, hand-crafted cocktails, champagne, and charcuterie and creative fare by The Board House.

The tour started off at Studio Samaniego. The studio’s owner, Arturo Samaniego, greeted the crowd with a few remarks, “Miami has Wynwood. Asheville, North Carolina has the River Arts District. New York City has Chelsea. The Naples Art District has grown into a community of over 100 artists. We are no longer a hidden gem.”

Shereen Ghandour, Inn on Fifth’s Director of Sales said, “The Inn’s guests look for unique experiences and shopping outings for beautiful one-of-a-kind items. The Naples Art District offers that experience.”

The Naples Art District is a vibrant arts community of 100+ artists who work, exhibit, and teach classes in their studio spaces along Shirley Street and J & C Boulevard. The Naples Art District has been designated by Collier County as a major visual arts destination for visitors and residents alike.
