The Key West Art and Historical Society Presents Their Annual : Royal Retrospective : 40 Years of Fantasy Fest

Brace yourselves-it's that time of year again, where 50,000 costumed (or semi-costumed) revelers arrive to party hardy, Fantasy Fest style. The Key West Art & Historical Society joins in on the carousing by paying homage to the altruism of the world-renowned island festival that provides integral funds for AH Monroe with a new exhibit titled  Royal Retrospective : 40 Years of Fantasy Fest.
The brainchild of Frank Romano, Joe Liszka, Tony Falcone, and Bill Conkle, Fantasy Fest was created in 1979 as a remedy to boost tourism with a two-day celebration and parade.  Over the decades, it has grown into a ten-day, colorful extravaganza featuring balls, parties, and parades, culminating with an immense, Mardi-Gras style parade helmed by that year's Fantasy Fest King and Queen- a title won by the candidate who has raised the most money for AH Monroe.
The  Royal Retrospective exhibit is co-curated with Tennessee Williams Key West Exhibit founder Dennis Beaver and will focus on the themes from each year's celebration via the annual Fantasy Fest posters, photographs of the former Kings and Queens, the fundraising efforts on behalf of AH Monroe, and the diverse objects and images that make Key West the place to be each October.  This year is extra special because Fantasy Fest organizers have donated a large number of historical ephemera and photographs to The Society that will be on display.








Parts 2 and 3 Up Shortly
----------------------------------------------

The Other Main Floor Exhibition at KWAHS is from a Legend in Key West Art : Martha Watson Sauer.  Ms. Sauer Traveled the Latin American Countries Extensively. All her Work was WaterColor on Paper
Please Read Below from KWAHS

With her sketchbook and paints invariably in hand, Martha Watson Sauer (1912-2006) created an incredible body of artwork while also serving as a teacher of watercolor painting and weaving in the Key West arts community.  A Key West resident for nearly 70 years  Surroundings: Watercolors by Martha Watson Sauer pays tribute to more than half a century of Sauer's work, which also include her personal effects and sketchbooks.  Her plein air watercolors spread beyond the island, they highlight architecture, landscape and people from her extensive travels around Mexico, the Caribbean, Europe and across the United States.  "My aim is to transmit to paper the delights of nature and the out-of-doors; the sun's heat and the deep cool of shadow," she explained prior to her death in 2005.  "My paintings are not puzzles.  I like what I see and try my best to present the scene so others may share in the enjoyment of it."
Born and raised in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Sauer came to Key West in 1936 during the Great Depression while the city was clawing its way out of its economic malaise by encouraging tourism with the help of the Federal Emergency Relief Administration (FERA), later called the Works Progress Administration (WPA).  Key West had not been her intended destination.  "My mother and I stopped by accident in a travel agency in Miami," Sauer remembered.  "We saw these watercolors by [FERA artist] Avery Johnson with scenes of Key West.  It was such a dear little town.  So I said, 'Let's go to Key West,' and we did."
Arriving at a time when a number of the WPA artists remained active in Key West's economic recovery efforts, Sauer's innate watercolor technique was noticed by the professional artists.  She received early tutelage from members of the WPA, particularly F. Townsend Morgan.  Sauer was asked to create lino-block prints for tourist brochures promoting tourist destinations including the Key West Municipal Aquarium, the Hemingway House, West Martello and the Peggy Mills House.  Sauer became one of the original members of the Key West Art Center that was known as the WPA's Key West Community Art Center in the 1930s.  Her very first sale was a painting purchased by the eminent pragmatist philosopher John Dewey, once a Key West resident.  Today, her works hang in private collections in Switzerland, Japan, Great Britain, Canada and the United States, including the Key West Art Center located at 301 Front Street.
Exhibit sponsored by The Helmerich Trust and the Key West Art Center.

Master Slacker at The Studios of Key West by Jack McDonald 
Exhibition Oct.3-28.  Our Magazine will run Probably a 4 Part / Week Feature



Jack McDonald uses spray paint, stencil stylings, and acrylic brush work to create off-the-wall immersive paintings. With graffiti-inspired concepts, the imagery consists of colorful backgrounds, humorous characters, and strange overlaying text. McDonald has been creating work nonstop for the last 12 years-not only his own work, but also floats, theatrical sets, party props and backdrops. This exhibition is a culmination of that flurry of creative hard work. The Wonderdog crew joins in the fun, utilizing the open space in the gallery as a Fantasy Fest workshop, where glitter, tulle feathers, glue, you name it are transformed into costumes and props.

Now "Insects and Angels" from Flower Conroy and TSKW ( The Studios of Key West). Exhibition Runs Oct.3-28



Island poet Flower Conroy delves deep into themes of love, loss, spirituality, religion, mortality and extinction. Lately, she's turned her eye toward the visual, and taken inspiration from Cesar A. Cruz's idea that "art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable." In her newest endeavor, Insects & Angels, Conroy creates art assemblages using plastic toothpicks, broken jewelry, rubber toys, bones and Christmas lights-and of course, language, to convey weighty ideas with humor and camp.

First Play of the 2019 / 2020 Season
"TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS"

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.

Key West Mayor Teri Johnston, during a recent City Commission meeting, proclaimed October as Community Planning Month.
"Community planning provides an opportunity for all residents to be equally involved in making choices that determine the shared-vision of their neighborhoods," reads the proclamation, "The full benefits of planning require public officials and citizens who understand, support, and demand excellence in planning and plan implementation."
The recognition, said Mayor Johnston in the proclamation, "gives us the opportunity to publicly recognize the participation and dedication of the members of planning boards and other citizen planners who have contributed their time and expertise to the improvement of the City of Key West."
"Thank you for honoring our profession," said Planning Director Roy Bishop. "We are very proud to work for the City of Key West."

City Manager Greg Veliz, during this week's City Commission meeting, recognized two commissioners for their ten years of service on the commission.
But don't let the number fool you. The first recipient, Commissioner Jimmy Weekley may have reached ten years in his current service as District I commissioner, but he's been on the dais nearly continuously since 1985. He represented his district from 1985 until 1999 when he was elected mayor. He served as the city's mayor from 1999 until 2005. He took a, relatively speaking, short hiatus, then was elected to his current seat in 2009.
District III Commissioner Billy Wardlow was also elected to his current seat in October of 2009. However, he served this community with the Key West Fire Department from 1976 until he retired as Chief in 2006.

 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 will 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."

"The White Rabbit's Wonderland" kicks off at 8:00pm Wednesday, October 23rd at the Key West Theater, 512 Eaton St. and runs for three evening performances. The show, featuring a hit-list of favorite local performers, international burlesque superstars, amazing aerial acrobats, brings all your favorite Wonderland icons to life.
Songstress extraordinary, Shelly Watson host the show as the famed white rabbit, and is supported by local comedian, Steve Crane, as the March Hare . Long time Key West Burlesque performers, Moana Amour and Tatah DuJour are joined by special guests Aurora Natrix and Frankie Markstone who will have your screaming "of with your clothes" instead of "off with their heads"! The always-outstanding Key West Burlesque performers parody the ensemble cast of the cherished tale including the tweedles, and other curious characters like you've never seen before.
The show runs October 23-25 at the Key West Theater. Doors open at 7:30, show begins at 8pm. Tickets ($45-$75) are available online at  thekeywesttheater.com. For more information go to Keywestburlesque.show

GRACY@KEYSDIGINET.COM Gracy Lozano Byrne
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  KWHMT.org 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 KWHMT.org, download the free Key West Historic Marker Tour phone app at  keywest.oncell.com, 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.

 Key West Art & Historical Society's Parent and Me Fort Adventures happen at Fort East Martello Tuesdays and Thursdays through May

Registration is open for this season's Parent and Me Fort Adventure classes at Fort East Martello, 3501 S. Roosevelt Blvd., offered on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10:00am - 11:30am by Key West Art & Historical Society. Led by educator Linda Stolze, the toddler-centric education program celebrates hands-on, inquiry-based learning while inviting children and parents to explore the Fort and its artifacts, dioramas, and immersive exhibits.   

Each week, this fun and educational class focuses on specific themes that include art, science, math, and building. Following a playful group circle time that promotes creativity, sensory exploration and problem solving, Ms. Linda will fill the morning with engaging activities. Stolz received her BS from Murray State University in Kentucky with a degree in PR and Equine Science, was certified for Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) at UCLA, and then received her teaching credentials in Special Education, K-12 from California State University at Northridge. 

Children will also be able to enjoy the Imagination Playground, water play, and story time in the spectacular setting of the Martello tower.  Classes are free for Key West Art & Historical Society members; suggested donation for non-members.  For more information contact Education Specialist Kassandra Collett at 305-295-6616 ext. 114 or email at  kcollett@kwahs.org .  Sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Division of Cultural Affairs and Society benefactor Lee Garrison.    Your museums.  Your community.  It takes an island.
