The LUCKY artists of The Studios of Key West

The Studios at Key West in the old Armory Building

Today we visited The Studios of Key West. a nonprofit charitable organization founded in 2006 and based at the historic Key West Armory. They are managed by a professional staff, and governed by a volunteer board of community leaders. How lucky are these artists to have such a space in the heart of Key West to do what they love?

TSKW considers it their mission to support local creative people, celebrate the island's unique heritage and to foster new collaboration and artistic production.

A residency studio sponsored by The Green Parrot

All of the studios had plaques on the doors that indicated who sponsored them, mostly local businesses. You can apply for an artist residency at the studios on their website. 

These studio spaces were amazing! big windows, bright light, and big spaces. 

What a great space!

We enjoyed an abstract exhibit as we wandered through the upstairs of the galleries today. 

Beautiful upstairs gallery space

What a great stop on the way to Duvall St. to celebrate the luck of the Irish and St. Pats in Key West!
