Art Gallery 21 welcomes one of our resident artists, Heidi Reiter, as gallery docent this Saturday evening, June 30th, from 7 to 9 PM! Heidi’s work as a visual artist isn’t her only talent either! She is also a musician, so, there’s no telling what might happen while she’s on duty! Make sure to stop in and say “hello” and see the art show. You know you want to! And, we’re sure you’ll be glad you did! We are definitely worth the detour from Wilton Drive!
Art Gallery 21 will be closed July 7 to September 22 when we will hold art intake for our 7th Annual Island City Juried Art Exhibition, our first art show of the 2017-2018 season. Entry rules and guidelines will be available here on our web site on Tuesday, July 3, 2018. Thanks for another great year supporting the arts in Wilton Manors!
Art Gallery 21 is pleased to present the extraordinary work of five local artists: Rosemary Lisa Boyd, Monika Hurter, Barbara Pardon, Angie Riserbato and Aviva Sasson are local painters, each with a distinctively different style. The range of mediums includes oil, watercolor, acrylic and mixed media and we feel confident in saying everyone will see something they like!
We hope you will join us at 7 PM on Saturday, November 4, 2017 to meet the artists and experience the charm of Art Gallery 21, located in the former Woman’s Club of Wilton Manors. The exhibit will be open to the public until December 2, 2017.
If you aren’t able to join us for the opening, don’t worry. The gallery will be open on Saturday, November 18 for the ART EXPO (art walk) on Wilton Drive.

We are located at 600 NE 21 Court, Wilton Manors, FL 33305, next to the volleyball court at the northeast corner of Hagen Park, just east of Wilton Drive.

PLEASE NOTE: The gallery is currently closed and undergoing a renovation to the ceiling. While it cut our most recent exhibit short, we’re truly thrilled to see this added improvement being done to make our little gallery even more welcoming to visitors! The City of Wilton Manors has a history of working with the arts community in meaningful ways and this project is another example of the City’s support for art and artists!
Saturday, March 18th at 7 PM
Art Gallery 21 will unveil a photo exhibit of folks who live and work in and around Wilton Manors as they toil at their jobs. We’ve been collecting photos of people working since the beginning of the year as a way to celebrate the arrival of the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit, “The Way We Worked!” In addition to showing photos of local folks, we’re hosting a Story Slam that will begin around 7:30 PM.
What’s a story slam? A Story Slam is more than a storytelling competition. It’s an invitation to share five minutes of your life in a room full of people who appreciate a well-told tale. Audience storytellers take to the stage with real life stories on the theme of the night. The stories are true, as remembered by the storyteller and always told live, no notes, no script. We have created a downloadable/printable PDF here that provides storytelling tips. The theme of our Story Slam is “Diversity, Equity and A Paycheck.” The entire story slam will be recorded by The Humanity Project and produced as a podcast to be posted to the web, including The Stonewall National Museum & Archive‘s website.
We are honored to have Carbonell award winning playwright and actor Michael McKeever serving as our Story Slam Host! With wit, insight and a healthy dose of his quirky sense of humor, we are sure he will lead us through an evening of entertainment and enlightenment as we discover what “Diversity, Equity and A Paycheck” means!
Join us at Art Gallery 21 at the former Woman’s Club of Wilton Manors to see and hear what “The Way We Worked” means to us. AG21 is located at 600 NE 21 Court, just east of Wilton Drive, next to the Hagen Park tennis and volleyball courts and has easy access to public parking. This event is free to the public. Limited seating available.
