Art After Dark November 2018
Crayton Cove is historically one of Naples’ earliest developed retail areas with some businesses located there still that have been apart of our community for many years.
As well as The Dock Restaurant and The Cove Inn, the Phil Fisher Studio/Guess-Fisher Gallery is one of those long standing businesses.
Artists Phil Fisher and Natalie Guess are celebrating their 35th year being in the retail art business in Naples. Phil moved here in 1971 and by coincidence, Natalie’s first visit to Naples was that same year.
Phil spent years acclimating himself to the area and painting various local images while working a variety of jobs, including managing a shop at Tin City. That was one of the first places they met after Natalie moved here full time in 1979, looking for a retail outlet to sell her art work.
They started dating and found many things in common, fell in love and married in 1981 on a sailboat behind the Cove Inn.
After starting a family, they opened The Fisher Art & Frame Shop in 1983 on Golden Gate Pkwy. In 1996, Phil opened his studio/gallery on 5th Ave. S. Natalie moved her gallery & frame shop onto 5th Ave. S. in 2003.
In 2008, they moved their galleries to Crayton Cove and are happy to have come full circle, being in this location that replicates the environment of the “Old Naples” community they have been a part of for so many years.
Guess-Fisher Gallery, Phil Fisher Studio/Gallery and Random Acts of Art are the galleries in Crayton Cove looking forward to another great season of events like Art After Dark where they can offer a wonderful art experience with local musicians and professional Naples artists in an Old Naples environment for the public to enjoy!
This month’s celebration is Saturday November 10th from 6 to 9 PM, where 8th St. S. &12th Ave. S. meet at the flagpole by Naples Bay. They continue through May on the second Saturday of each month featuring new work at each event. www.GalleriesOfCraytonCove.com
