A mission to support, encourage, and showcase the work of local artists
The Key West Art Center & Gallery is incorporated as a non-profit organization, devoted to the encouragement of local artists by furnishing them with a central market place for their work. The Center is supported by membership dues and a commission of sales. Here you will find a wide variety of art created by over 50 dedicated local artists from the Florida Keys. Work includes paintings in many mediums, sculpture, ceramics, fine jewelry and fine craft. If you are searching for a special piece of the Keys, you will find it here.
The Key West Art Center and Gallery provides a year round sales resource for local artists. It provides a community gathering place, learning environment and public exhibit space. We safeguard the heritage of Key West as a city of artists.
We are currently in a fundraising campaign to maintain our historic building that dates back to the 1890's and the early days of Key West. This building has been home to our non-profit Art Center & Gallery since 1960. We are now in need of much needed exterior repairs and repainting and have plans to upgrade the interior of the gallery and art center, exhibit space, workspace, event meeting areas, and storage. Our fundraising goal is $50,000 with $10,000 in funds met so far. Please help with a tax deductible contribution. No donation is too large or too small. Thank you!
Max Irwin created Key West Art Walk to bring together an appreciation of art and architecture in his hometown of Key West. He will take you on a tour of local galleries and discuss art as well as the history of the buildings in which the art is housed. Max is very knowledgeable about the history and archictecture of the Key West Art Center & Gallery and talked about some of the history at a recent members meeting where he was introduced.
We are happy to collaborate with Max in this exciting venture. We are hearing great things about the Art Walk from happy customers and look forward to having them with us on their tours with Max.
This is a great way to enjoy the other side of Key West other than Duval Street and to learn about architecture, art and history at the same time. To sign up for his Art Walk, you can contact Max Irwin at (305) 850-8343 or keywestartwalk.com.
