We have spent time on Sanibel for years but somehow we missed this gallery. Never again! We'll be back often. We look forward to future receptions when there are featured artists. We loved the unique selections we saw on this first visit.

The Watson MacRae Gallery had some interesting ceramics and paintings in their small collection. Prices seemed high for the works.

This gallery is known and loved by the locals, but I want our art-seeking visitors to see what owner Maureen Watson has created. The current exhibit (it changes every month) features all things aviary — in glass, ceramic, oils and watercolors. The best.
