Collaborative Photography Exhibit “The Focal Plane” opening reception Friday May 17th, at the historic Gato Building

The Florida Keys Council of the Arts is proud to announce the opening of a new art exhibit: “The Focal Plane,” a collaborative fine art photography show of contemplative works by several local fine art photographers including Tamara Alvarez, Lynne Bentley- Kemp, Nicholas Bergery, Romi Burianova, Jeffrey Cardenas, Nick Doll, Jay W. Hall, Erika Heffernan, Martha Hubbard, Mary Martin, John Martini, Michale Marrero, Carol Munder, Rob O’Neal, Lena Perkins, Emma Starr, and more. The show is curated by Arts Council Board Member and photographer, Mark Hedden. The opening reception will be Friday, May 17th from 5:00 till 7:00 pm. Refreshments will be served.

Mark Hedden shared: “Photography is often about obsession – what is the thing that you find yourself focusing on again and again. It’s how photographers define themselves. There are so many great photographers who live and work in Key West, most of whom work in different veins. I thought it would be fun and interesting to assemble a somewhat eclectic show of their images.”

The exhibit will be on display Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 p.m. in the Gato, 1100 Simonton St., Key West, through the summer. There is free parking, and the building and show are ADA accessible. The building is closed on weekends and Federal holidays.

This exhibit is part of the Arts Council’s Art in Public Buildings program, designed to offer an opportunity for artists to exhibit their work beyond a traditional gallery space and enhance the environment of those who work and visit the Gato Building.
