Community of Artists: Galleries • Classes • Workshops • Gift Shop


Come often to explore, create and to share art...

The Visual Arts Center mission is to Inspire, Explore, Create and Promote the Visual Arts

The Visual Arts Center serves Punta Gorda, Charlotte County, Southwest Florida and beyond, with three major galleries, an extensive arts library and a gift shop of unique, hand crafted items made by our artists.

We provide the best art classes, instructors and exhibit opportunities for our members and visitors alike. Our courses are designed for all ages and skill levels and we offer a variety of both classes and workshops throughout the year in all the arts media. 

We sponsor events, gallery openings, competitions and groups for community participation with help from our dedicated volunteers, without whom we would not be able to provide our variety of services and opportunities for all.

The Visual Arts Center galleries are free to all.  Use our site to help discover all the art classes, workshops, events and exhibitions where you can explore your imaginative soul.

The Visual Arts Center's friendly, welcoming environment makes new and returning visitors feel comfortable lingering over our local, regional and national art exhibitions.  Year-round classes taught by our talented, award winning instructors provide life-long learning experiences to young and old alike.  We invite you to come see for yourself why Charlotte County Art Guild's Visual Art Center is truly a community gathering place.

Bringing inspiration and creativity to our community!
