Anna Maria Island – Anna Maria Island is not only a place to take in the natural beauty, but the man made beauty as well. No need to go to a big city to view many different local artists. A few names you may have even heard of such as Emerson, Sue Lynn Cotton or Barbara Hines. You can either go to one of many local galleries, or gift shops on the island to find local work. Some of our local artists can even be found in many of our vacation rentals. Take a stroll through one of the galleries, and see if you recognize anything.
Here are the local galleries for you all to enjoy. Please click on the names below which will take you to their web site for phone numbers, hours and what collections are available for viewing throughout the year:
Some of these galleries will allow traveling artists to display/sell some of their pieces as well. If you have some great pieces, and will be on the island for a while, this may be the perfect opportunity for you.
Sometimes you just need to slow the pace, enjoy life around you, and even experience it through someone else’s eyes. This is not hard to do when visiting the many fabulous galleries around Anna Maria Island.

Neon Neurons at Artspace Anna Maria
The new exhibit, “Neon Neurons“features the work of Dr. Juan Sanchez-Ramos. Also known as ‘Zeno’, Sanchez-Ramos started his early career as a wandering portrait artist and designer, but evolved over the years to become a neuroscientist-physician. He is also the Medical Director for the Parkinson Research Foundation and Professor of Neurology at USF – Tampa.
Zeno uses images from research in Neurobiology to inspire new designs and art works. Neon Neurons was inspired by photomicrographs of neurons in his lab. Intrigued by the fractal nature of neurons, he began to draw simple neurons using a 3D drawing program. The images show the structure of developing neurons from their stem cell origins to their beautiful fractal branching structures.
Zeno will give a short talk about his research and design processes during the reception. Join artists, friends and neighbors for champagne, snacks, community painting, and live music. And, enjoy another Artspace Community Challenge! Be sure to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award for the Artspace Challenge. Wear something neon too!
