Art inspired by science, fantastical illustrations, and large-scale oil portraits fill The Studios of Key West’s galleries!
In the Sanger Gallery, Miami artist Deborah Mitchell uses color drenched works to explore change in wildlife corridors, depicting mammals, birds, botany and landscapes layered with correlated scientific data. The goal is to encourage discussion to inspire interest in restoring ecosystems and combating climate change, habitat loss and invasive species.
In the Zabar Project Gallery, Kristyn LaMoia invites viewers to experience a surreal inner world replete with fantastic, sometimes funny inhabitants. The clean, delicate style of her work balances her perceptions of a sprawling otherworldliness.
A selection of works by Letty Nowak will be shown in the XOJ Gallery. With her latest endeavor JAG Gallery off the ground, which Keys Weekly describes as being “like a super cool younger sibling who somehow has clout and cred way beyond her years,” Nowak is ready to once again share her own art with the community.
The Studios of Key West is offering a number of ways to enjoy their exhibitions this season. In addition to their regular gallery hours (Tue-Sat, 12-4pm), The Studios is offering private tours to couples and small groups. The perfect opportunity to enjoy art safely, bookings begin with a rooftop mimosa at The Studios’ historic art deco building on Eaton Street, and continue with a tour through the galleries.
The exhibitions will be on view May 6-27. For more information, visit www.tskw.org or call 305-296-0458.
