One-of-a-Kind Art and Clothing Boutique

Take home a unique souvenir from your vacation to Florida–artwork by a Sarasota area artist! This art gallery and clothing boutique offering one-of-a-kind, tropical and coastal inspired original paintings, photographs, sculpture, seashell creations, ceramics, glassware, wearable art, beautiful handmade jewelry in sterling silver, gold, mixed metals, and semi-precious stones, and other unique gift items from a variety of talented local Sarasota artists. Seashells, sea stars, sailing boats, pelicans, seahorses, turtles, manatees, and sport fish are a recurring theme in this Venice art gallery and gift shop.

The boutique and art gallery is a co-operative, allowing several local jewelers, sculptors, and artists to showcase their individual work. Each member of the group takes a turn at staffing the gallery, which means that whenever you visit you will be able to meet and talk to at least one of the owner-artisans about their work.

The Artful Gem is located in downtown Venice, Florida.Opening hours are: Monday – Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Closed Sunday.
