EXHIBITIONS

The Naples Art Association welcomes visitors to a variety of exhibitions throughout the year. Each show has its own focus, sharing unique stories and facts about artists, their style and the context of contemporary artwork. Art appreciators will find our galleries filled with art by international, national and local artists, young artists, members’ exhibitions, new art trends, community partnerships and much more.

In addition to the galleries at the art center, the NAA has a variety of off-site exhibitions in the community. All of the galleries are free and open to the public year round.

We’re committed to showing:

  • A variety of exhibitions from local and international artists, inspired by photography, painting, sculpture and more.
  • Educational Merit as a resource on contemporary art, art history and techniques.
  • Artistic Merit through juried and professionally curated exhibitions.
  • Career growth support in the form of exhibition opportunities for artists (including how to enter a juried show, marketing and branding, setting prices, etc.)
  • Pride in NAA artists' dreams and accomplishments.
  • Recognition of excellence through awards and publicity.
