New Date February 10 6:30PM

It's time to howl at the moon again with Southernmost Slow Ride! February Full Moon is known as the Snow Moon so let's dress in our Snowy best! We are meeting at the end of White Street Pier, by the Compass, at 6:30pm. The sun sets at 6:18pm if you want to arrive early. Come catch the sunset and howl at the moon with us or at least have fun riding and socializing. All ages and abilities are welcome! Meet us out at White Street Pier and we normally meet at the end of the pier. We start gathering at at 6:00pm and ride out at 6:30pm Routes are TBA.

Please bring, install, and use as many lights on your bike as possible. Regular bike lights, decorative bike lights, wheel lights, glow sticks, novelty light-up glasses and hats and ties and boas, and anything lights up or glows and is safe to ride with! If you have any bike-mounted music, you can bring that too. We will have tunes playing from a couple of our bikes. Don't have that stuff? You can still come and ride.

NOTE: Ride at your own risk. No road closures, no escorts, only informal marshaling-a mellow ride with friends you know and some you haven't met yet. We will "take the lane" and own the road at times, but we will also get in single file or pull over to allow backed-up cars to pass, so please follow the marshals and the general vibe of the group.

ALSO Here is some Additional Information on their 1 Year Anniversary Party on January 31
As the first anniversary of Shade & Shutter approaches, Mark and I have been reflecting on our first year in business here in Key West. We've come a long way since we first opened our doors at 1102 White Street, and we are grateful for the support of our friends, customers, and the Key West arts community.
During our first year we gave back to the community by: sponsoring the Key West Photography Festival and the Key West Yoga and Wellness Festival; sponsoring local arts organizations, including The Studios of Key West, The Key West Art and Historical Society, and The Florida Keys Council of the Arts; sponsoring local theatrical organizations, including the Red Barn Theatre, Waterfront Playhouse, Tennessee Williams Theatre, and Key West Theater; donating items to local organizations; giving to charities, including Habitat for Humanity and Equality Florida.
Mark and I created an inviting space for our gallery and working studio, and we were featured in two articles-thanks to Mandy Miles and Laura Richardson. We participated in several Walk on White events on Third Thursdays. We also created a new, modern website with an online store and implemented a marketing plan under the guidance of Linda Cunningham .
Mark introduced many new items, including a line of fun and affordable Key West Gifts, earrings, pendants, cruets, luminaires, pet dishes, and holiday ornaments. He introduced new clay bodies, new glazes, new dinnerware set designs, and new mug designs. He made many custom orders for individuals and local organizations-special thanks to Martha Hubbard, the folks at Isle Cook, and the folks at Little Pearl.
Sarah added to her photography portfolio and gave a presentation at the Key West Photography Festival. One of her photos was chosen to hang in the office of our US Representative Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, and another one was selected for the KWAHS exhibition "From a Woman's Hand". She participated in the The Studios of Key West Members Show, and one of her photos is on the cover of The Key West Art Guide.
Mark and I could not have accomplished all this without your support. As an expression of our gratitude, we'd like to invite everyone to our first anniversary celebration on Friday, January 31 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at our gallery. We hope that you can join us for libations and refreshments!

Curator Alaen Ledesma Fernandez Opens

Reception Feb 7 at the Roberto Russell Gallery at Ocean Sotheby's Int. Realty 81888 Overseas Hwy. Islamorada
The Corpus collective exhibition brings together the work of five Cuban painters who focus their visual discourse on the human body.   From different expressions, the body is the protagonist of his works, and with this the inquiry about his particular rituals of representation and understanding of beauty.
 Using figuration as an artistic expression and evoking a universe of individual symbols, they bring the viewer closer to their particular stories while proposing routes of inquiry about the human condition, the balance between pain and hope and the complexity of life experience.
 The works of Capdevilla, Nodarse, Guzmán and the binomial Sandra and Enmanuel reveal five different ways of transcending the limits between the corporal and the spiritual, of externalizing the harmony between the internal sphere and the universal space, while seducing contemplation and  They encourage reflection.
  Curated by Alaen Ledesma Fernandez and Supported by The Florida Keys Council of the Arts , Ocean Sotherby's International Realty and Latin American art magazine.

Tennessee Williams Museum first-Sunday curator tour series continues 
The Tennessee Williams Museum, located at 513 Truman Avenue, will offer the second in a three-part series of tours led by Museum Curator Dennis Beaver on Sunday, February 2 from 2:00pm - 3:00pm. The tour will focus on the playwright's controversial death, an event covered extensively by the global media which raised questions as to whether the 71-year-old's death was suicide, choking, or murder, as was believed by Williams' brother. This tour will provide the most recent findings as well as archives exhibited in the museum.
The award-winning museum is already a destination for Tennessee Williams enthusiasts and scholars.  It houses  a n impressive collection of Williams' memorabilia and literary artifacts that underscore the importance of his legacy and the impact the literary icon  made during his long career.  Displays include artist Jane Rohrschneider-Carper's model of the playwright's Duncan Street home, a place he lived from 1949 to 1983, first edition plays and books, images from the late local photographer Don Pinder, and a new collection of photographs featuring Williams and celebrities of his era, many of whom were featured in his film and theater productions.  Key West Art & Historical Society honors locals the first Sunday of every month with free admission to the museum and three other properties under its stewardship-the Custom House Museum, Key West Lighthouse & Keeper's Quarters, and Fort East Martello Museum. The next Tennessee Williams Museum curator tour will be from 2:00pm - 3:00pm on Sunday, March 1, the official kick-off date of the month-long Tennessee Williams Birthday Celebration that features a series of arts and cultural events set to take place at multiple Key West venues.  
The Tennessee Williams Museum on 513 Truman Avenue is open for self-guided tours from 9:30am-4:30pm daily. For more information, contact Key West Art & Historical Society at 305-295-6616 or visit  WWW.KWAHS.ORG .  Your Museums.  Your Community.  It Takes an Island.

The Key West City Commission, on January 7th enacted an ordinance allowing café style seating on the City's right of way. However, all furniture placed on the City's right of way must be properly permitted by the City.  Any items that have not been issued a City permit must be removed by February 7 th  when strict enforcement begins.  Applications are available at City Hall, 1300 White Street or you can call the planning department for details at 305-809-3725.
City officials gathered today at the Truman Waterfront Park to thank former Monroe County Mayor Shirley Freeman, Harvey Server, and Grimal Grove Curator Patrick Garvey for the donation of a breadfruit tree. The tree is the second fruit-bearing tree planted in the Merili McCoy Fruit Tree Garden, named for a former city commissioner and founder of the Tree Commission.
Now just five feet tall, this mature tree can reach up to 85 feet in height and produce 450 pounds of fruit each season. This fruit has been a staple in the Pacific islands, but the Florida Keys are the only area in the United State where this tree can thrive.   The breadfruit tree was one of the tropical trees from around the globe brought to the Florida Keys by Adolf Grimal for his forest on Big Pine Key.
Historically, there were several of these lush trees in Key West, but storms and development have taken their toll. Mayor Freeman said she wants to be sure this historically significant tree was a part of the magnificent new park.

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.

Key West Art & Historical Society Invites Public to Experience Free Key West Historic Marker Tours
Key West Art & Historical Society invites locals and tourists to experience a multi-platform, self-guided, and free tour program of Key West's historic sites designed to highlight the island's unique multi-cultural history and heritage through the Key West Historic Marker Tours website and phone app.
Originally designed and launched by Bruce Neff under the auspices of Key West Historic Markers Inc., the program merged with Key West Art & Historical Society in 2018 and consists of three primary elements: a map of cultural and museum attractions featuring 121 historic location markers that pay tribute to Key West's colorful past, phone apps that act as a personal museum docent to support those taking the self-led walking tours, and a comprehensive website at that provides a virtual tour of Key West, historic background and community information, digital collections of local postcards and cigar box art, and links to Google maps. 
Key West has one of the largest historic districts with the densest amassing of historic frame vernacular buildings in the country. The island's history encompasses unique architecture, Civil War forts, famous authors' homes, connection to wars and revolutions, once-thriving turtle and sponging industries, sunken treasure galleons, slave ships, Flagler's railroad, boom and bust economies, and much more.
To plan your own tour, visit the Key West Historic Marker Tour website at, download the free Key West Historic Marker Tour phone app at, or call 305-507-0300 for a free Key West "Voices of History" phone tour. For more information, contact curator Cori Convertito, Ph.D., at 305-295-6616 x112.
