High Tide Art Gallery Reviews & Ratings
Always coastal and marine art in a changing mix of artists and mediums. I love stopping in to see what is new.
Wonderful shop...goodlocal artist.
This is one of the best galleries I have ever been to! I found art I loved in every room of the store! I was inside for over an hour and still hadn't seen everything they have! The prices are amazing too and so I was able to get several wonderful and unique art pieces from local artists for both myself and gifts for my friends and boyfriend! Also the owner is fabulous! She was so nice to us while we were there shopping and shared tidbits about the artists who made the work! If you come to visit St. Augustine you have to stop in High Tide! They have the best art around!
Love this place! So many artists work in one place! And I love all of the sea glass!!
A great gallery of many different art forms.
