The Artful Giraffe is an art and gift gallery located in the Historic Downtown Village of Sarasota. The gallery showcases the creative talents of Florida artists, as well as a few select artists from around the country, in a variety of mediums. We feature original paintings, metal sculpture, fused and stained glass, jewelry, seashell creations, ceramics, wearable art, handcrafted soap and candles, and more. We also carry a large selection of unique gifts. The gallery is full of whimsical, happy art as well as coastal themes inspired by the beauty of our Florida gulf coast.

Behind the gallery is a Paint-Your-Own-Pottery studio where you can “create and paint it” and we will “glaze and fire it”. Book a birthday party, bridal shower or other fun event. Please contact us for details and pottery studio hours.

We also offer a variety of classes taught by local artists. Join us for some creative fun!
