Gardener Colby Gallery
Seventeen years ago, we discovered Old Naples. We had taken a month off in the middle of winter and traveled south from our beloved Martha's Vineyard with hopes of finding a winter home for Gardner Colby Gallery. We strolled up and down the Third Street shopping district and were overwhelmed by the beautiful shops, the fabulous flowers and majestic fountains that give this most elegant shopping district in Naples its very special cache. It didn't take long to make the decision that yes, Old Naples was where we wanted to open our Florida gallery. Smart move.
Gardner Colby Galleries are located in the heart Old Naples on "Gallery Row". We have been featured many times in prestigious publications such as Arts & Antiques ("Traveling Collector" series), American Art Collector and Fine Art Connossieur magazines. Gardner Colby has also been prominently featured in the travel sections of the Palm Beach Post and the Atlantic Constitution as "tops" for gallery hopping in Naples. We represent an exceptional group of living American and International painters and sculptors, among the most renowned working in the country today; artists whose work will be revered well into the next century.
Owner Nancy Winch graduated from Hollins University with a dual degree in in French and Art History. Her love of art was formed during her matriculation, when she lived and studied in Paris for a year. After 15 years in the Public Relations and Advertising business in Boston, she decided to finally take advantage of that love of art, combining it with her business acumen, and she and her husband, Tony, also a veteran of the ad business in Boston, opened Gardner Colby Gallery on Martha's Vineyard. The rest, as they say, is history.
Our gallery director, Pamela Campe has been with Gardner Colby Gallery since 1996 and helped us open our Naples gallery. Pamela received a BA in Fine Art – Painting with a minor in Art History from Long Island University.
