Arts Council presents 2023 Members Show “200 Years of Island Life”

The Florida Keys Council of the Arts is proud to announce our 2023 Members Show, “200 Years of Island Life”. The Opening Reception will be held Wednesday, November 2, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at the historic Gato Building, 1100 Simonton Street, Key West. The exhibition will remain on display through January 27, 2023.

Our Member Artists share in the spirit of celebrating Monroe County’s Bicentennial through their artwork, inspired by tropical landscapes, our diverse culture, and the unique history of the land and sea which surrounds us. Their artwork reflects our distinctive architecture, and the colorful sights and sounds of the fabulous Florida Keys. We hope you can join us!

The Gato building, which is home to many State and County offices, supports the Art in Public Buildings program which offers an alternate space for artists to display their work. Free parking is available, and the building is ADA accessible. Refreshments will be served.

The Florida Keys Council of the Arts supports visual, literary and performing artists and cultural organizations throughout the Keys with several grant programs and scholarships. We connect artists to each other and to their audiences.
