Here are 4 Exhibition Events from The Studios of Key West

Alosugre : A Journey Across Time
Jan 2 , 2020  Reception 6-8P Sanger Gallery
Miami based artist Onajide Shabaka explores ethnobotany, geology and archaeology as they relate to human history, society and culture. Through a combination of abstract, calligraphic works on paper, documentary photographs, sculpture and found objects,  Alosúgbe  traces Shabaka's own family history along with the migrations of people and plants from the rice plantations of the Atlantic colonial slave era to 20 th  century Florida.
This exhibition derives from several years of ongoing research finding connections between colonial sites in the Low Country (Georgia & South Carolina), the Caribbean archipelago and Suriname.
sponsored by Zabar's

Funding for this exhibition

Alosúgbe was originally curated by and presented at Emerson Dorsch Gallery in Miami, where it was funded in part by The Ellies, Miami's visual arts awards, presented by Oolite Arts. Support for  Alosúgbe was also provided in part by Locust Projects through its Wavemaker Grants program, which is part of the Andy Warhol Foundation's Regional Regranting Program. Wavemaker Grants is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, and Wells Fargo. With generous project support from Disapora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator (Miami) and ReadyTex Gallery (Paramaribo, Suriname).
Jan 2, 2020 Reception 6-8PM

For over twenty years Donna Nadeau has been photographing and painting backstage scenes, her co-dancers, and the men who paid to see them, in the strip bars and "gentleman's" clubs in which she worked, from Maine to Las Vegas, beginning in 1980. Her intention was to document an extraordinary world-its colorful habitués, front-line gendered power structures, and sometimes harrowing psychologies-from the unheard perspective of the women around whom the entire cavalcade still revolves. With exquisite subtleties of form and palette Nadeau endows her watercolors with the atmospherics of these usually obscured environments, and their physical and social architectures-from drab backrooms to glittering, mirrored stages; destructive relationships, underworld dangers, and the financial pursuit that keeps the industry in tension. The artist's own experiences are embedded in the vignettes she depicts, imbuing them with authenticity, humor, and stirring emotive impact. These paintings and the fascinating stories that inspired them are pointedly relevant to today's cultural discourse, although they have remained largely unseen in the decades since Nadeau began making them-until now.

The Annual "TSKW Winter's Member Exhibition : Outside the Line" Dec. 5-26
Reception 12/5 6-8PM
"A simple line can speak volumes, but this year, it's the wild, unknown space outside the lines we're eager to explore. As we burst through the ceiling onto our rooftop terrace, our thoughts can't help but turn to new possibilities and limitless horizons. For the members' show, we invite artists to step outside the lines, experiment with a new color palette or medium, create a canvas out of something unconventional, deliver a fresh take on a familiar form and find inspiration in the unexpected." TSKW

"Listen" by Adam Russell"

Here are the Other Two Exhibitions/Receptions coming in January 2020
STILLNESS by Josefina Cavalina  Zabar Project Gallery
Reception 1/2/2020  Exhibition 1/2-1/30

A new focus, a new body of work, and a new name. New York artist Josefiná Cavaliná presents still life oil paintings featuring ceramics, fruits and vegetables.
Josefiná (aka Joseph Cavalieri) was chosen as a Studios' AiR in 2012, and has returned to teach four glass classes. This is the inaugural exhibition of Josefiná's paintings on canvas. A collection of serene and quiet images painted in his Little Italy studio in Manhattan.
"The subject matter in my paintings is close to my heart. I have worked in ceramics and my father owned a general store in Tarrytown, New York, which specialized in fruit and vegetables. I worked there as a teen."
sponsored by Historic Hideaways
EDDIES BY JIM RACCHI Zabar Lobby Gallery
Reception 1/2/2020 Exhibition 1/2-30

An island mainstay and one of the driving forces behind the dearly missed Sculpture Key West exhibitions, Jim Racchi studied classical stone carving in Florence before settling in the Keys. His welded creations echo that training in their strong lines and impulsive flow. Racchi's latest work is a series of polychrome welded steel sculptures that illustrate the flow of an eddy-a circular current defined by its movement.

Marci Rose sends Holiday Regards and Tells Us :



For the month of December, SALT Gallery (830 Fleming St.,  will feature a  collection of colorful oil paintings by the beloved local artist Dick Matson. To celebrate Matson's works, SALT hosted an opening reception at the gallery from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6.
A Brooklyn native, Dick Matson has lived and worked in Key West for over 40 years. After graduating from The Cooper Union Art School in New York City and attending graduate school at Yale University's School of Art in New Haven, Conn., Matson worked in advertising, but never left his love of painting behind.
            The majority of Matson's works, including the pieces at SALT, are done en plein air and feature the distinctive architecture and natural life found in Key West.  His palette is clearly inspired by the island's color and light and over time he has become one of Key West's most prominent artists. 
            "Dick Matson is an absolute legend in the Key West art world," says gallery owner Laura Richardson. "He's a singular character and it's an immense honor to feature an artist as talented as Dick on the walls of our tiny gallery."
SALT Gallery features an eclectic collection of local art, local sea salts, jewelry, pottery, wine and Florida Keys honey.  Gallery owners Maria Sharpe and Laura Richardson feature a new artist each month at SALT. Matson's work will remain on display until the end of the month. For more information, call 305-517-6088 or visit .

2019 Holiday Safety Tips
It's time to deck the halls, but it's also a season where fire can be a threat Key West Fire Chief Michael Davila wants to remind the community to be alert for possible fire hazards that can sneak into our homes over the holidays. Space heaters, candles and dry Christmas trees are just some of the potentially dangerous additions to our homes this time of year.
Each year, lives are lost and homes destroyed because of unsafe use of heaters. The following are some tips to ensure you don't become a statistic:
Never use ovens, ranges or grills as heating devices
Install carbon monoxide detectors
Keep all heating devices at least 36 inches away from other objects, including walls and furniture
Never use an extension cord with a space heater, and never leave it unattended
Keep candles at least one foot away from anything flammable and never leave one unattended
Be sure your smoke alarm is tested monthly
Use an artificial tree, or be sure your real one is fresh and keep it watered
Use safe lights, check cords for wear, and don't use more than three strands on one extension cord
Keep candles a long, safe distance from the tree
Do not allow children to handle the lights
Never use indoor extension cords out of doors
Unplug the lights before changing bulbs
Finally, even cooking can be hazardous if we don't follow a few simple steps:
Do not leave a stove unattended
Keep saucepan handles turned away from the front of the stove so that children cannot pull them down
If you deep fry a turkey, be extra careful; do not use the deep fryer under a deck and be sure to keep children away from that vat of hot oil. This is a potential dangerous means of cooking, so be fully aware of the hazards before you start.

First Play of the 2019 / 2020 Season

Dec 10, 2019 - Jan 4, 2020

Based on the book by Cheryl Strayed. Adapted by Nia Vardalos.

Directed By: Joy Hawkins

A struggling writer takes over as an online advice columnist who admits she doesn't have all the answers but mines her own mistakes to empathically respond to dilemmas that are at the heart of being human. The play was based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed of "Wild" fame (a book and movie starring Reese Witherspoon) and was originally directed by Thomas Kail, the director of Hamilton. Tiny Beautiful Things is a luminous play about reaching when you're stuck, healing when you're broken and finding the courage and humor to take on the questions which sometimes have no answers.

Pons started with the City as a maintenance worker in 1999, but over the years has primarily served as a mail courier and bus driver. Currently, Pons drives the Duval Loop.
"It's been a tremendous pleasure to work with Charlie," said Veliz, presenting Pons with a gold watch and a 20-years of service challenge coin.

 Key West Farmers Market at Truman Waterfront 10a-2pm
On July 16 the Key West City Council approved a weekly Farmers Market at Truman Waterfront. The decision came after new organizers came forward to fill the void left by the abrupt departure of the Green Market at Bayview Park. Jill Snodgrass and Sean Krikorian, owners of the event firm Daily Plan-it, already organize the popular seasonal Key West Artisan Market at Higgs Beach so it was a natural fit. "We feature many of the same vendors who came to us expressing a need and desire to continue serving the people of Key West," Krikorian explained. "Many of them participate in a market almost every day somewhere in the keys, so missing an option on Thursdays left a void for them as well as the patrons."  The Truman Waterfront Advisory Board reached out to encourage selection of that recently renovated area as the new location and both vendors and organizers agreed it is a perfect choice.
The new event  began August 1 and continue every Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm. The show will feature produce sold by the Homestead farmer who grows it, Rosie, the famous cheese lady, orchids and native plants, pickles, honey, handcrafted items and other specialties. Organizers are applying to make the show EBT/SNAP friendly so affordable fresh food will be available to more people. Working locals are urged to take advantage of the many prepared items and stop at the market during their lunch break to enjoy a seaside picnic while they shop. Parking is plentiful and free with a resident parking permit. Visitors are encouraged to use the free pink Duval Loop Bus which stops close by. The new splash park and tours of the Ingham are also available in the park.
"When the Green Market closed many locals were very vocal about wanting a farmers market option in their backyard." Krikorian said, "We hope everyone shows up to support this and helps make sure its sustainable."

Gracy sends regards and tells us : This website was created to make easier to event goers to find times and dates. Companies can save time and always have updated/available events available to them and their customers. They don't have to search every local news paper to find what they need. They have ready and combined information on one calendar. It's also online and therefore very convenient. Most people are digital nowadays. Another selling point is that the calendar of events will provide useful information that can be used for scheduling. Any company who is having a special event can look at the global calendar and avoid clashing times/dates with other organizations. This also allows them to attract more people to their events by scheduling their own events when other organizations aren't scheduled.

DOORS 7:00P // SHOW 8:00P
The Kingston Trio began with Nick Reynolds, Bob Shane and Dave Guard in 1955... Home base: San Francisco. The three founded what turned out to be the most influential music band to emerge from the 1950s, only to be outdone by The Beatles. With talent and tenacity, they rose to become the undisputed kings of an acoustic musical genre that exploded onto the American scene, and still exists today!

10,000 MANIACS
DOORS 7:00P // SHOW 8:00P
The band has covered plenty of ground in its 35-plus years, from cult-herodom to international stardom, to their current status as a cornerstone alternative band. But the sound and spirit of 10,000 Maniacs remains consistent. The live shows embrace their entire catalogue, and the lineup is still anchored by four of the six original members.


SHOWS AT 6:30PM & 9:30PM

Kevin Nealon sets himself apart from other comedic performers with his unique sense of humor, dry wit and likeable demeanor. Nealon is best known for his nine-year stint as a cast member of NBC's Saturday Night Live, and has received critical acclaim for his role in the Showtime series, Weeds.
