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, 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, national 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.

Your Choice 2018

When: August 13 – September 19, 2018
Where: Naples Art Association

Your Choice is the Naples Art Association’s annual non-juried exhibition. It provides an opportunity for Naples Art Association contributors to present their artwork to a large audience with no jury process requirement. The exhibition is called “Your Choice” because artists and viewers make the choices. Artists decide which artwork they will exhibit while viewers attending the reception decide who will receive the awards. There are five awards with a total cash value of $1,000. Everyone attending the August 10 reception may cast one vote for a favorite artist. Voting is overseen by the Collier County Supervisor of Elections Office and the award winners will be announced on the Naples Art Association’s Facebook page. Artists are invited to register one artwork before the July 11 deadline (deadline to register early and provide an image for possible pre-exhibition publicity is June 14).
