Our hotelier suggested that we check this place out seeing as how we enjoyed the Chihuly museum and live glass-blowing demonstration. This is a artists collective of some of the most gorgeous glass work and mixed media I've had the pleasure of seeing. The staff is personable, pleasant and approachable and eager to answer any questions that you may have.... More

This is much more than a gallery! It includes: 1. Sculpture garden with glass and other media displayed in a lush tropical garden. 2. Featured artist gallery where glass art is displayed for a month. I believe the artist is in residence and does demonstrations during that time. 3. Another gallery where the work of artists who have been featured... More

Visiting the gallery was an unusual experience for me. We went as a group of six friends and relatives. Perhaps I was the least exciting about going, however I ended up being very impressed with the gallery.

This place is breathtaking. The artwork is magnificent and Duncan personally greets all of his guests. The demonstration was done by Nancy Callan, who is a renounced glass blower.

Ours was a group visit through the Appleton Museum of Art tours, and was beyond what we could've imagined. Duncan explained how the gallery began, who the artists were, when the exhibits change, how the glass is blown, and why this gallery became such an integral part of the revitalization of the St. Pete area. The glass works on display... More

We fell in love with Duncan McClellan's Gallery. You can see truly amazing glass works of art there by many different artists. The staff are friendly and helpful. Duncan McClellan himself is a treasure who supports other artists by showcasing their works, lectures at museums and other venues, and brings the story of art glass to schoolchildren and hospital patients....
