Located in the heart of Matlacha Island is one of the most colorful landmarks along the Gulf Coast of Florida, Lovegrove Gallery & Gardens. It serves as the international headquarters of Leoma Lovegrove. The historic fish house displaying lime green walls and a canoe topped roof gives you the promise of more to come. Lovegrove has crammed an incredible amount of her art into tropical flora and fauna. Mosey on through the rest of the gallery until you find the back door, then stop into her technicolor world and botanical waterside gardens. Here you might just run into Leoma painting, weeding, or banging on her drum.
Leoma’s art is instantly recognizable with her energized brush strokes, paint splatters, and imprints of her fingers. Her pallets (often a huge garbage can lid) filled with an array of vivid colors that appeal to art lovers of all ages. Her impressionist/ expressionist painting style is a must see.
Post photos of your Lovegrove art and you in her gardens on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (#LeomaLovegrove). Leoma paints and adds flowering plants in her gardens to attract butterflies. Visit the gallery and gardens often. It changes daily with her inspirations.
