Art Center Sarasota not only offers very good art shows but also classes and talks open to the public. The location is downtown and very central.

The people are friendly, and it is very easy to spend some time here. They also have some interesting classes and events. Great place to cool off and have... More

This is a thriving art center that offers ongoing exhibits along with workshops, classes, and competitions. There are five galleries,with the largest typically devoted to an open juried exhibition. Friendly staff!
