Tower Gallery


Tower Gallery is a cooperative art gallery on Sanibel.
After visiting the gallery for three decades, I just noticed on last week's visit
that the palm tree on the left is a sculpture.

Cool.

Indeed it is :). Love this style of building. Can just imagine sitting in that screened porch enjoying a nice iced tea.

Very Caribbean colour. Lovely!

I didn't notice it until I read your comments. It certainly blends in well with the other trees.

I didn't notice it either until I read what you had written!! That's really cool! Colorful house, too!!!

What a great discovery. I'd likely walk by and not notice it. Thank you for your comment on my blog today. Nothing wrong with a bit of whimsey.

I'm not sure I would have noticed that either. Love the color of the building, I bet they have a nice collection.

That's funny, Jack!

What a nice house.

The colour is really fetching!

Are you sure the sculpture isn't new (as in only 10 or 15 years)?? It's kinda cute.

Re: Ghery and Wright bldgs. I lived for about 15 years in sight & walking distance of Wright's last public commission, the Marin County Civic Center. It does have chronic leaks. But the building itself is graceful, organic and comfortable. The interior works pretty well. The Ghery? Interesting exterior in its contrast with others but the museum interior is a hodgepodge and there is very little flow or connection if any between exhibits (which may be a vision problem with the museum itself). I like it, kinda, but agree that it may not be so beloved long term. The facia of blue shows a little mold and could use polishing.

Love that color!

There is a series called Brain Games on one of the cable science channels. One of its main points is how little we observe out of all that we see. Case in point.

I'm a guy that likes colour in my photos. I really like the colour of this building. It's very pleasing to the eyes.

Such a pretty building Jack, perfect for a gallery. The palm tree is very realistic :) :)

Funny how we can miss something like a fake palm tree.

Kate said...

I'm glad that you are now photo blogging because we all become more observant because of it.

We would need some palm trees of that kind!

I visited Sanibel before it was so popular. I wish I had that cute cottage on the beach!
