DAAS CO-OP Gallery
The DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery & Gifts features some of the best local artists as well as visiting artists from around the world. Tgallery operates as a cooperative system in which everyone participates, collaborates, coordinates and tend to all business matters. Gulfshorelife Magazine named us the Best Art Art Gallery in SWFL (2018 & 2019). DAAS CO-OP is nestled in the up-and-coming Artists District and within walking distance of the River District.
The River District showcases art with exciting galleries, exhibitions, and performances every first Friday of the month from 6-10 p.m. in downtown Fort Myers. Free to the public with many venues featuring additional attractions and specials.
On the first weekend in February, ArtFest enlivens the Fort Myers waterfront with exceptional art, entertainment and children’s art activities. At ArtFest, you’ll discover high-quality, Made-in-USA original art by more than 200 artists. Whether you’re a new or experienced art lover, you’ll find something wonderful to add to your personal collection.
