Caution! This is not your typical white wall gallery!

Instead, the Creative Native Gallery is housed in a 1940's era Florida bungalow, where each room has its own unique character and flair. The gallery is the creation of Florida native ceramic sculptor, Pam Moody, who admittedly has an aversion to white, ordinary walls, along with deep roots in her native state.

From the very beginning of your visit you will be charmed by the whimsical palm frond adorning the entrance, along with the quirky tiki and bar humor signs hanging around. Once inside, the lively, colorful artworks take center stage! The gallery currently features the original works of over 20 local and native Florida artists. Not to worry, their works are not all seashells and sunsets, but rather a vivid presentation of pop, funk, traditional, and folk styles created in watercolor, oil, and acrylic paintings, hand-built ceramic, mixed media, and metal sculpture, glass, wood, jewelry and more. Be sure to check out the clay studio, where more than likely you will find a mess (also known as a work in progress), or watch as parts of a palm tree are transformed into a totally unique piece of art!

The Creative Native Gallery prices range from under $10 to the ranks of a "serious collector" making it easy to bring the real Florida home! Whatever your tastes, you will want to explore this gallery full of one-of-a-kind works that you just won't see anywhere else!
