Aboriginals couldn't stay away. Can you?

Aboriginals: Art of the First Person has opened a new retail space in Gannon's Art & Antiques Gallery in South Fort Myers.

Gannon's is located at 16521 S. Tamiami Trail (Route 41). Aboriginals will have a limited offering in approximately 250 square feet inside Gannon's 20,000 square foot facility.

According to William Waites, cco-owner of Aboriginals, "We are excited abou tgetting back to a situation where our clientele can look at, touch and feel art objects before purchasing them."

Aboriginals was a very popular tribal art gallery for 16 years on Sanibel, a facility that was closed approximately two years ago. The owners still receive comments from visitors who lament the closing of the physical gallery on Sanibel Island. In the meantime, the gallery has been operating successfuly on the Internet with Web sites at,, and .

Aboriginals will continue to operate the web sites, but also invites its friends and collector customers to stop by Gannon's to see the Aboriginals space. The space primarily will feature larger pieces of African and Australian Aboriginal art, including textiles and paintings, with a smattering of Native American items. In an upcoming message we will include a photo of the space and some of the items being featured.
