Concierge.com's insider take:
Unless you were a guest at the Grand Bohemian Hotel, there's a good chance you wouldn't come across this contemporary art store located on the hotel's ground floor (right next to Starbucks). Search it out for unique paintings, prints, and jewelry handcrafted by Orlando artisans. Artist and violinist Elizabeth St. Hilaire Nelson does unusual collages, working with materials such as pages from her son's homework and sheet music to create renderings of peacocks, cows, and blueberries (the images are also printed onto canvas bags if you'd rather wear your art). Steven Mikel uses coffee in light and dark roasts to make sepia-tone watercolors of Florida landscapes. The gallery is well situated, since the Grand Bohemian Hotel has a collection of more than 150 rare works from artists ranging from Gustav Klimt to Dale Chihuly. Alas, those are not for sale.—Terry Ward
