Naples has been transitioning since its beginning. Growth spurts and increased construction come and go through the years, shaping the character of our spot in paradise. As a historically important part of Naples, Crayton Cove is continuing to go through its growing pains, as well. As the Naples City Dock is in the midst of being replaced with a safer, better floating dock for the charter boats and others who use it consistently. These changes are part of an exciting time with expanding opportunities to experience this cultural commercial neighborhood as it transitions. This time of the year is a great time to enjoy our amazing restaurants including Bleu Provence, Chez Boët, The Dock Restaurant and Napoli on the Bay, while strolling the awesome collection of galleries featuring art and fine craft by some of our well-known Naples artists and offering the opportunity to purchase that perfect painting or take home a special memory of Naples to last for years to come.
We are excited to announce that the Guess-Fisher Gallery is expanding to the space to the west of the Phil Fisher Gallery to offer more fine art and the opportunity to participate in art workshops or classes; schedule to be announced. As has happened annually for the past 8 years, the Galleries of Crayton Cove will be starting their Art After Dark event which happens monthly on the second Saturday from October to May. The participating galleries and art related businesses are Phil Fisher Gallery, Random Acts of Art, Vintage Charm, Earth & Fire, Naples Ships Store, Cove Inn 24/7 and the newly expanded Guess-Fisher Gallery. Come and experience an exciting evening of art and music from 6 – 9 p.m., Saturday October 14, 2017. We look forward to seeing you!
The Galleries of Crayton Cove is a professional artist community in Old Naples by the Bay, all within a one-block walk, where 8th Street South meets 12th Avenue South at the flagpole. Check out the websites: www.philfisherfineart.com or www.GalleriesOfCraytonCove.com
