Tough to find but worth it. Looks/feels like an old Florida neighborhood (which it is) and you get to see artist people in their studios/shops.

Went there for art night and not many places were open and it was very dark outside. The artists are very friendly but there is nothing special there that makes you want to go back.

This small area of building near downtown is like a small art colony. The number of exhibits had become less over the years. Intersting and quality art can be seen.

Towels Court is full of artsy and unusual art. The buildings are vintage old Sarasota and walking around here is lots of fun. It's not a big area.

A friendly low key set of galleries and shops and artist studios and eateries. We were not able to stay as long as we wanted but would go back. It is always nice to have the opportunity to talk with artists about their work and...More

Two guide books recommended it but it's just craft shops along an alleyway. It's also not easy to find. We saw one other couple there and it was early afternoon. The restaurants looked closed up so call ahead if you plan to eat there.
