Recognized as the world’s leading marine life artist, Wyland uses his art to increase awareness about the ocean environment and its inhabitants — as well as the need to preserve and protect that environment. Both a painter and sculptor, he is best known for the 100 detailed, evocative life-sized Whaling Wall murals of whales, dolphins, and marine life that he has painted in cities around the United States and the world.
Wyland Galleries of Key West showcases fine ocean and environmental art, and contemporary works by leading artists. Wyland’s own pieces are highlighted: majestic whales, playful dolphins, serene manatees, and vibrant reef life depicted in original oils and watercolors, magnificent bronzes, acrylic sculptures, a wide range of Lucite sculptures, limited-edition giclees, and unique art gift items.
St. Armands Circle, the Sarasota area’s most unique shopping district, is renowned for its boutiques, sidewalk cafés, and fascinating art galleries — and the Wyland Gallery is one of the most popular destinations along this dynamic thoroughfare.
Featuring Wyland’s paintings and sculptures, including abstract canvases and small Lucite sea sculptures, it also displays paintings, sculptures and other creations by a select group of leading contemporary artists.
In addition, the gallery showcases Oggetti glass from Italy’s Murano, as well as from Sweden and around the world — including the complete collection of spectacular art glass by world-renowned master Dino Rosin.
