The Old City is full of beauty and inspiring locations, architecture and history. The historical and cultural influence from European countries including Spain and England is apparent. It is no surprise then, that you do not have to search very far for St. Augustine Galleries devoted to various mediums. The St. Augustine Art Association has been celebrating arts in our community since 1924 and it is located right in the Historic District. In addition to the juried exhibits of works from the city's emerging and professional artists there are numerous other St. Augustine Galleries and places to enjoy or purchase art in various forms. Art crawls, festivals such as the St. Augustine Thanksgiving Art & Craft Festival and other events are great spots to take in art and browse for great gifts. Also, find out more about The Lightner Museum and it's fantastic collection on the page that we included on St. Augustine Museums.
