Attraction details
Owner description: Lovegrove Gallery & Gardens is the international headquarters for Florida artist, Leoma Lovegrove and one of the most colorful destinations in the sunshine state. The gallery showcases Lovegrove's original art and it is here where you can step into her techinicolor world of tropical artistic flair and experience the authentic island style life of an artist. Paint your own Florida souviner in her world famous botanical waterfront gardens (Paint and brushes included). Or paint your very own coconut postcard to keep or mail back home (no box needed- mails as is). You can also paint your own painting in the garden with the help of Vino's Picasso (Seasonal Nov-April). You can also enjoy homemade ( "Love Boat Ice Cream")ice-cream right out of a real coconut shell and guess what? You can keep the shell and take it back home to remind you of the happy memories you made while visiting one of Florida's most popular historic landmarks and destinations. Sunday's with Tucke, (Jim Tucke, the musical genius and Beatles historian) begin in December and her performs every Sunday through March. Hours for the live music is 2 pm - 5 pm. The event is FREE. Leoma's private studio and guest cottage is adjacet to the gallery so chances are you see Leoma busy painting a canvas or planting a flower or beating on her drum on the garden stage.

Experienced this whimsical art gallery with my sisters while vacationing in Cape Coral late February, 2014. A relaxing, awe inspiring gallery and gardens. A must go to attraction while visiting SW Florida and Matlacha. We mailed a coconut birthday greeting postcard to our sister back home in South Dakota.

Leoma is a very talented artist. You will love her place. You have to buy on of those coconuts being shipped as a postcard!

The Lovegrove Gallery is a gem. Leona Lovegrove is frequently there. She also does her active art work at events. Love the color and whimsical quality. She is great fan of the Beatles also, so fun to see her art reflect that. Matlacha and her gallery are a must see in the Fort Myers area.

Very creative and attractive shop. Colorful and whimsical. Art is great and if you love the Beatles you will love this place. Take your time walking through the garden area as there are many things to see and if you're not careful you will miss something. Beautiful location in the heart of Matlacha.
