Over twenty years ago, while searching for a winter location for Gardner Colby Gallery to complement our Martha’s Vineyard base, we happily found Naples, Florida and the elegant Third Street South shopping district. With it's special cache, majestic fountains, flower filled courtyards, beautiful shops and great restaurants, Third Street South was the perfect choice for Gardner Colby Galleries.
With our newly renovated expansive showroom located in the heart of Old Naples on Broad Avenue South, now known as 'Art Block' (formerly 'Gallery Row'), the gallery has been featured in many publications such as American Art Collector, Florida Design, Veranda, and Traditional Home magazines and been distinguished as “tops in gallery hopping" in Naples by the Palm Beach Post, Google, Expedia and Yelp!
Our experienced and knowledgeable staff is prepared to help the first time art buyer, as well as the seasoned collector, find the perfect art for their home or office. We provide complementary in-home consultations and assist with framing, shipping, lighting and installation. Above all, we are dedicated to giving you a quality art experience each time you visit us, either in person or on the web.
