  • Act, Abuse Counseling Treatment Center
    Art connoisseurs share an artful delight in the Arts for ACT Gallery located in historic downtown Fort Myers, in the front of the Arcade Building. It is a pace-setting, award winning and 100% non-profit gallery owned and operated by Abuse Counseling and Treatment, Inc., a non-profit agency that provides shelter and support services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. The gallery is devoted to representing the distinctive and extraordinaire by offering premium quality works of art. Housed in what was once the Sydney Davis Men’s Store, circa 1960’s, the art lover walks through the gallery’s inviting glass façade into over 2100 square feet of gallery space divided into smaller areas, each with its own personality. dasddsd

  • Timeless Classics
    Timeless, items of interest & illumination, features Steampunk lamps and jewelry fashioned by Steve Timcak.  Located in the River District of the newly revitalized downtown Fort Myers, Timeless evokes a feeling of times gone by but is very much in the present day. As the popularity of Steve’s lamps grew, so did the need for space, to build and to show & sell them.  When a great location became available, Steve & Lisa decided to take the hardest of all steps, the first one, and opened in December 2013.  A bit more formal than Island Visions but not at all stuffy, Timeless blends the rich brass and wood of nautical and Victorian with vibrant contemporary works.dasddsd
