Twenty years ago, we happily discovered Old Naples. Searching for a winter location for Gardner Colby Gallery to complement our Martha’s Vineyard base, we found Naples’ elegant Third Street South shopping district. With it's special cache, majestic fountains, flower filled courtyards, beautiful shops and great restaurants, Third Street South is the perfect choice for Gardner Colby Galleries.
Gardner Colby Galleries are located in the heart of Old Naples on Broad Avenue South, now known as 'Gallery Row.’ We have been featured in many publications such as American Art Collector, Florida Design and Veranda magazines and been distinguished as “tops in gallery hopping" in Naples by the Palm Beach Post.
Our experienced and knowledgeable staff is prepared to help the first time purchaser 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 in one of our two warm and inviting showrooms, or on the web.
