Lovegrove Gallery & Gardens is the international headquarters for Florida artist, Leoma Lovegrove and one of the most colorful destinations in the sunshine state. The gallery showcases Lovegrove's original art and it is here where you can step into her techinicolor world of tropical artistic flair and experience the authentic island style life of an artist. Paint your own Florida souviner in her world famous botanical waterfront gardens (Paint and brushes included). Or paint your very own coconut postcard to keep or mail back home (no box needed- mails as is). You can also paint your own painting in the garden with the help of Vino's Picasso (Seasonal Nov-April). You can also enjoy homemade ( "Love Boat Ice Cream")ice-cream right out of a real coconut shell and guess what? You can keep the shell and take it back home to remind you of the happy memories you made while visiting one of Florida's most popular historic landmarks and destinations. Sunday's with Tucke, (Jim Tucke, the musical genius and Beatles historian) begin in December and her performs every Sunday through March. Hours for the live music is 2 pm - 5 pm. The event is FREE. Leoma's private studio and guest cottage is adjacet to the gallery so chances are you see Leoma busy painting a canvas or planting a flower or beating on her drum on the garden stage.

The gallery is small but filled with interesting artwork and brightly colored paintings using lots of reds and oranges. Loved the outdoor bottle garden out back, and the wild painted mini camper. They also have painting classes. Too fun to miss!

I reluctantly followed my wife into Leoma's studio and was glad I did. Not only is her art amazing, but the back yard is an experience. I loved her travel trailer painted with all the imagination of her portraits. A class is available to learn to paint in her mode. She even has a dock at the rear of her... More

Leoma Lovegrove is a true gem to our community! Her work is not only brilliant, but brilliant in a kaleidoscope of color. The classes offered a great value, and so much fun to take with a friend, and then you get your own Leoma work of art that you produced. I now have 6 paintings in my collection, but I... More

If you are in Matlacha, this is a place you do not want to miss. Brightly colored inside and out, it is the exclusive art of a local artist Leomi...now I might not have spelled that correctly, but while I don't have a picture to share of her gallery, gardens or works, I am a fan. I have purchased several... More

It was a fun afternoon. Everyone's painting turned out great even though everyone was worried. The ladies were helpful and assisted when needed. Location on the waters edge.

Even if you are not an artist, you need to visit and see this unique art and learn about the artist. The area outside the store in the back is also fun to walk through.

This is a must see if you are in the area. The art is upbeat, fun and fresh! Like color and Florida images? Lovegrove brings this all together in art that makes you want to smile. The gallery inself is an inside and outside experience and you just have to laugh at the wimsy.

Lovegrove's art is so colorful and beautiful. The gallery is both indoors & outdoors so be sure to see both. Lots of choices for purchase or just for viewing her wonderful talent as an artist. Don't miss this place as you pass through Matlacha.
