Art Uptown is a partnership of up to 29 accomplished regional artists working together to promote the showing and sales of our art in ways that engage our customers and enrich the Sarasota community. Among our priorities are high standards, friendly service, simplicity, elegance, professionalism and financial sustainability.
Established in 1980, the gallery has thrived on Main Street for years, providing excellent sales for its talented artists, many of whom have received regional or national recognition. A balance of different kinds of work is vital to the dynamic exhibitions for which the gallery is known. For this reason, new artists are juried into the gallery based on both the quality of their work and the degree to which it differs from what already is being shown.
Artists agree to not only show high quality new work every month, but to attend monthly meetings, be prepared to contribute to the operations of the gallery and actively participate in at least one committee. If you are a professional artist living full-time in the Sarasota area and are interested in showing your work in our gallery and joining our community, we encourage you to apply.
We currently have openings new two dimensional artists.
