Key West Art Center & Gallery celebrating 61st year

Key West Art Center & Gallery, which is celebrating their 61st year in its present location at 301 Front Street, will present the 13th annual Plein Air Key West on March 13. Artists in all media are welcome and can register at the gallery to participate between 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. or pre-register online, with artists returning completed art work back to the gallery by 1:30 p.m.

Plein Air Key West is an all-inclusive and fun event that attracts local artists and talented amateurs throughout the Keys with many visiting artists planning their trips to Key West around this time to participate. Watercolor, acrylic, oil and pastel paintings, charcoal and pencil sketch artists are all welcome. Artists may have more than one canvas or paper stamped.

No evening event is being held this year, but the art will be on display and for sale until March 20. Jim Salem will be this year’s judge.
