The Gallery

The Naples Gallery was sold in the summer of 2002

and may be reopening in a new location in 2014.


"The Timmel Collection" was a fine art gallery located at 643 Fifth Avenue South in downtown Naples, Florida. Located on the most prestigious block in southwest Florida, the gallery was surrounded by many fine shops, galleries, sidewalk cafes and hotels along the landscaped promenades in this historic setting a short walking distance from the Gulf coast. Fifth Avenue is Naples Main Street. The surrounding residential neighborhood of homes and apartments offered a mix of the generations of yesterday and today, looking toward tomorrow. Browsing Fifth Avenue is to experience the charm of the heart of Olde Naples.

The Gallery represented eighty painters, sculptors, photographers, and functional artists with national and international reputations. Approximately fifteen were talented regional artists from the Southwest Florida area.
