Peggy McTeague, artist and owner, established WildChild Art Gallery in 2000. It is a contemporary art gallery representing her works and the creations of 115 Florida Artists. The original fine art, canvas art, paintings and jewelry have garnered the many awards WildChild has won of Best Art Gallery in Matlacha. If you are looking for art on Pine Island, we have an incredible selection. The gallery building is a historic fishing cottage located in the heart of Matlacha (pronounced Matt-la-shay), a Calusa word meaning
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 Matlacha again and again. We have original fine art and jewelry as well as sculptures, pottery, fiber art and glass. 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.
Visitors from all over the world stop to chat with our little Gallery dog, "Just a Bit," and many have sent him messages and photos. Learn his special story...
