Jane Gilbert

Nancy Henning

Nancy Henning

Jane Gilbert's artistic career has garnered multiple awards for her paintings, prints and photographs.  She has works in major private and public collections .  Her rich, sensual layers of lines, marks and fields of color create gestural, abstract images, usually with the natural world as a base.  She paints in response to places, objects or ideas, or to the simple joy of putting line and color on canvas and seeing where it takes her.  She wishes to convey some of the magic, mystery and excitement of the lush natural world around her and to create paintings that will resonate over time.

key west art walk

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.
