Palm Avenue Fine Art was founded by Robert Wilson in 1998. Robert opened his first gallery in Nantucket in 1977 and has been the curator and procurer to master artists and fine art for 46 years. His humble beginnings started in the smallest of shacks located in South Worth, Nantucket, as he grew and cultivated his expertise, he then moved to Candle Street, and would eventually settle on Main Street where he found resounding success for over 20 years. Being inspired by the rich cultural heritage of Sarasota, Wilson chose to make the next home of his passion and enterprise on Palm Avenue where it remains today. His devotion to works of traditional mastery and impressionism has solidified Palm Avenue Fine Art as the gold standard for the finest art in Sarasota.
