Welcome to Art Gallery 21 at the Island City Cultural Center, your neighborhood art gallery. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in the heart of the Wilton Manors Art & Entertainment District and we present a variety of art and cultural events throughout the year showcasing the works of local artists.
Art Gallery 21’s mission is to bring art and cultural experiences to the community and to host art-focused events that enrich, educate, impact and inspire. Housed in the former Woman’s Club of Wilton Manors, built in 1956, it is also our goal to help preserve and maintain this historic and cultural landmark for future generations. Our founding principles of innovation, artistry and leadership have enabled our organization to develop a team and the resources to grow its reach and influence on South Florida residents and visitors of all ages.
Art Gallery 21 showcases a variety of art from the local creative community. From first-time artists to emerging artists to award winners, we are always on the lookout for new talent. New artists may consider entering our Annual Island City Juried Art Exhibition held in October. This annual exhibit is a great opportunity for individual artists to learn about the local art community in Wilton Manors. It will also offer insight into how to exhibit art for a new audience while coming together with our team to promote the gallery. Artists interested in exhibiting can visit here for Art Gallery 21’s gallery guidelines. Direct questions and/or comments to our team via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Art Gallery 21 is an all volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are grateful for all the volunteers who have contributed their time and talent since opening our doors in 2012. In fact, we love our volunteers and wouldn’t be where we are without them! We are always seeking art loving individuals who want to join our team. We love folks interested in serving as a docent (the public face of Art Gallery 21), or assisting with art installations, PR and marketing, fundraising, or helping with setup for our art socials (we throw a good party!). Docents are trained to provide art gallery visitors with a unique and enriching cultural experience and are a very important part of the gallery’s success. If you are interested in serving as an Art Gallery 21 volunteer, please email us email@example.com.
