Expect to be dazzled by the finest contemporary clay, glass, jewelry, fiber, metal, wood & mixed media hand crafted by Florida artists. Experience nationally recognized artists in the exhibition gallery in exhibits which change every 2 months. Tour ArtLofts, 19 artists’ studios above Florida Craftsmen Gallery.
Florida Craftsmen is a non-profit organization which represents over 350 Florida artists in the retail gallery as well as over 100 artists at CraftArt, the juried 2 day fine craft festival held on Central Avenue in front of the gallery. CraftArt is always held on the weekend before Thanksgiving (2013 is on Nov. 23-24) and features artists, art demonstrations and a raffle of work donated by the exhibiting artists. Don’t forget the food trucks and craft beers!
The winter holidays are exceptional at Florida Craftsmen. The exhibition space becomes a secondary store with innovative gifts to fit every budget. Most importantly, you know you are buying something handcrafted and made locally.
Located in the Central Arts District, Florida Craftsmen is surrounded by great restaurants, boutiques and galleries. Park the car or take the trolley and stroll the district particularly on Second Saturdays when the galleries stay open late.
Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-5:30pm Second Saturday Gallery Walks-open until 8:30pm
