From a Woman's Hand
January 17 - March 22, 2020
Custom House Museum | Bumpus Gallery
Key West Art & Historical Society is reviving its popular juried art exhibition, “From a Woman’s Hand,” and invites Florida Keys women to apply. The January 17 – March 22, 2020 exhibit in the Custom House Museum’s Bumpus Gallery will feature paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, prints, textiles, and ceramics created by female artists, with a special opening reception on January 17, 2020 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (KWAHS members and contributing artists have VIP entrance from 5:30 p.m.).
Drawn entirely from the Florida Keys community, the exhibit illuminates the remarkable achievements of women artists, addressing the gender imbalance in the art world. This is particularly important as 2020 marks the centenary of women’s suffrage in America. This exhibit contributes to the commemoration of this historic milestone. Arts community leaders Jane Grannis, Martha Resk, Lois Songer, and Cori Convertito, Ph.D. juried the exhibit.
**Please note that the Custom House Museum CANNOT offer artwork for sale during the exhibition.
