February 25 & 26, 2012Historic Old Town Key West, FloridaApplication Deadline - October 1100 artist booths
The Key West Art Center, a non-profit community art center, sponsors this fine art show that highlights 100 artist exhibitors. Locals and tourists alike flock to the Old Towne to see what's new each year and to see old favorites.
New this year:
In year's past this show has limited its media to strictly non-functional art, painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, etc. Because of many requests from the community we are enlarging the media that will be accepted. All media in fine art and fine craft are now eligible for participation. We welcome fiber, ceramics, jewelry, wood and other fine craft categories for jurying.
Cruise boats dock just blocks from the show
and passengers are dropped onto the street a block from where the canopies line the beautiful tree lined streets. Running parallel one block from famous Duval Street and its famous bars and restaurants, is an added bonus.
In its 46th year now the show has grown from an all local art show to a nationally rated Fine Art Show. Like Key West itself, this show has a wonderful mix of styles and traditions and the
locals and tourists alike find their favorites. February's warm tropical breezes bring tourists of all kinds to our tiny island city and many of them plan their trip around the Key West Craft Show.
The 100 juried artists
set up on Whitehead and Caroline Streets in the historic district and through the famous Presidential Gates into the private residential community known as Truman Annex. This compact arrangement makes it easy for visitors to walk the entire show.
This show is run by artists for artists
, and strives to bring all the right things together for everyone to have a great show. Advertising is done throughout the Keys and South Florida with support from the Florida Keys Tourist Development Grant and the Key West Art Center.
Please feel free to call for more information. The director, Lois Songer, would be pleased to discuss your work and see it it meets the new categories, 305-294-1243.
We are Key
West...... we are happy to answer all your questions and hope you come visit!
