Since 2018, SPAACES has impacted and invigorated our local arts scene by growing its studio and gallery footprint from 1000 to 4500 square feet and curated over 33 museum-modeled art exhibitions, highlighting emerging artists and research projects. 


SPAACES is a non-profit in Sarasota, FL that helps emerging contemporary artists in the community with professional support, art studios and solo exhibitions. Come visit the gallery space as well as local artist studios. We are open by appointment. Please call us at 941-702-4732 with any questions.
