Sweet Art Gallery is Southwest Florida’s largest source of contemporary artwork. An anchor in the North Naples Art District, the gallery features 14,000 square feet of original art, including abstracts, expressionism, contemporary realism and sculpture. Representing more than 45 national, international and local artists, the gallery’s extensive collection is constantly evolving to keep up with art trends. “Our wonderful clients come to us because, simply put, they love original art; and original art is our business,” says gallery owner Dede Sweet.
Like so many appreciators of fine art, Sweet thinks of the pieces in her gallery as much more than objects. “Living with art is like living with a family member or a friend, and it becomes the signature of a room,” she maintains. A decorative artist who has been Naples’s “art girl” for 30 years, Sweet opened the gallery in 2005. “I wanted to bring something fresh and new, and we were the first to offer contemporary abstract artwork,” she explains. As business has shifted, Sweet has begun to focus on offering door-to-door, white glove delivery of all pieces on the website to any address in the country. The gallery currently has a catalog of more than 600 original pieces. It’s a great time to buy art because the works produced by artists during a year of introspection are turning out to be next level. People are also ready for a change and art can change a room instantly.
