Shop for art inspired by Bennett Springs State Park at the park's entrance.
This is a nice gallery at the entrance to Bennett Springs State Park, opened in 2006. About 35 artists show and sell their work here; some are local, some are not. The gallery is a popular place for people buying souvenir images of the park, either photos or watercolors. Prices start at about $275 for the original artwork. Other items include pottery, jewelry, some stained glass, a few greeting cards; prices start as low as $10. However, for some of the beautiful turquoise jewelry, prices above $100 are not uncommon. Exhibits change about three times each summer, and the gallery closes at the end of trout season. There is also a little courtyard/performance place on the side of the building where you'll find live music (jazz, country, gospel, etc) many summer weekends. There's seating for maybe 50 people at most, and it's a pleasant spot to relax.
