Owners Dave and Jill Scott founded their original venture, Capitol Art, in a basement just outside of Washington DC. Through the (30+) Air Force years, Capitol Art moved with them to Frankfurt Germany, Leavenworth Kansas, Apollo Beach Florida (1988), Cambridge England, Montgomery Alabama, Ft. Walton Beach, The Panama Canal, Little Rock Arkansas and then back to Tampa where they re-opened Hoffman Porges Gallery in Historic Ybor City. In March of 2014 the name changed to Home Port Gallery when they relocated back to Apollo Beach. Because “Home is where the Air Force sends you,” the name “Home Port” just seemed logical.
In their 30+ years of experience in custom framing and fine art collection, purchase and placement, Dave and Jill have seen the industry grow and mature. Their accomplishments grace the walls of hundreds of collectors and corporations worldwide. If you’re looking for experience, you will find it at Home Port Gallery.
The Gallery’s focus will continue to be providing high quality, affordable custom framing, unique fine art and “whole concept art consulting” for both home and business.
HPG will exhibit the work of both established and emerging talent – to include local artists, in addition to artisans from Haiti, Cuba, Mexico, South America, Africa and other developing nations. Many of our pieces are made from upcycled materials, creatively constucted by loving hands by individuals that literally support themselves and their family through self expression, using what others would disgard. All exhibited art, sculpture and jewelry is hand made and often one-of-a-kind.
