Artworks and Wind Sculptures at Random Acts of Art

This well-stocked craft gallery at 761 12th Avenue South is a treasure trove of handcrafted gifts and artworks ranging in price from a few dollars to thousands for a sculpture by local artists Mark White or Byron M. Wood. Mark White is well-known for his kinetic wind sculptures which are sure to introduce a talking point to any outdoor space.

No item is too large or too small to find in Random Acts of Art. Their beautifully created Butterfly Bench, for example, is handcrafted from steel and comes in four sizes, from child-size to the largest at 86 inches in width. This see-through butterfly image seat creates beautiful shadows in the garden while providing a delightful focal point and useful garden seat. Peacocks, dolphins, hummingbirds, fish, flowers and trees all provide inspiration for the furniture stocked at Random Acts of Art and are suitable for either indoor or outdoor use.

Support Local Florida Artists

Smaller items such as hand-painted mirrors or metal wall art featuring boats, pelicans or fish can introduce a sense of Florida to any home. Most of the artisans are local to Naples and the Southwest Florida region, with a few better-known artists represented from elsewhere in the USA. This ensures that each piece is carefully handcrafted for the highest quality and attention to detail.
