ArtBeat Studios in Royal Palm Square

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Boston native Barbara Allshouse had long dreamed about creating a place where local artists and artisans could display and market their wares, as well as share their knowledge about their crafts with the community.
With a long background in a career of interior design/decor and art, she’s lived and had successful businesses in the Fort Myers and Cape Coral area for 17 years. But Barbara has always nurtured that vision of a working gallery, accessible and welcoming to artist and customer alike.
ArtBeat Studios Gallery and Gifts opened in February 2021, finally fulfilling that dream. Bright and beautiful, the space in Royal Palm Square is full of colorful and unique creations in a wide range of styles and media. Barbara has gathered a talented group of creatives in her midtown location, and adds more inventory weekly.
Classes and workshops for adults and children are offered year-round, and she hosts a monthly “Meet the Artists’ event, making the art even more personal and personalized.
The next Meet the Artists Night will be held Tuesday, Oct. 21 from 5 to 7 p.m. Music will be provided by Little Fools.
ArtBeat Studios Gallery and Gifts is located at 1400 Colonial Blvd., suite 35, Fort Myers, just west of the intersection of Summerlin and Colonial.
The gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and for special events. Their number is 239-225-9770, and more information about the space—event rental, class scheduling, artist rental—can be found on their website at
