Palm Avenue Fine Art was founded by Robert Wilson in 1998. Having been in the art world for 45 years, he opened his first gallery in Nantucket in 1977. It was in the smallest shack in South Worth, Nantucket. This location lasted a few years then moved a block to Candle Street, but would eventually set on Main Street where he found resounding success for over 20 years. Becoming inspired by the rich cultural heritage of Sarasota, Wilson decided it would be the next home of his enterprise where it remains today. His devotion to works of traditional mastery and impressionism has solidified Palm Avenue Fine Art as the gold standard for fine
art in Sarasota.
