LaBelle Gallery & Cultural Center

Whats happening in the Gallery.

About the Gallery

The Gallery is located at
471 North Lee St. in LaBelle, FL.

Open from October thru May.
Hours are Fridays 1-5pm and Saturdays 9 am – 3 pm.

The Gallery is facing the Caloosahatchee River adjacent to the draw bridge and across the street from Barron Park. It is housed in the historic Christie House built in 1914 and much of the house is still original and might be considered a piece of art itself.  A handicap ramp was added recently so that everyone is able to enjoy this LaBelle treasure.
