Established in 2000, WildChild Gallery is a contemporary art gallery representing the works of owner Peggy McTeague and over 120 Florida Artists. The gallery building is a historic fishing cottage located in the heart of Matlacha (pronounced Matt-la-shay), a Caloosa word meaning "knee-deep water."
The vision of WildChild was to have a place where people could come enjoy a unique experience of art in all its forms and be able to learn about and purchase art created by award-winning artists residing primarily in southwest Florida. Often there is a gap between artist and art buyer. Our hope is to bring the two together. We are always looking for creative souls and artists to participate in this mixture somewhere between co-op and normal gallery and for new marketing opportunities
to bring in art buyers and collectors. As with many of the things we do here at WildChild Gallery, we start down a winding path that sometimes turns mid-stride into a two lane road, never knowing where it will lead us, but that is half the fun.
A visit to WildChild Gallery will have you coming back to this sleepy little fishing village again and again. We have just refreshed our gallery, and re-hung for the new season. Stop in soon to see all new exhibits and new creations in all media by our diverse group of artists. Until then, please continue to explore our website.
who will be here this weekend!
Mimi McCallum- "Summer School"
