Key West Art & Historical Society revives its popular juried art exhibition From a Woman’s Hand and invites Florida Keys women to apply. The January 17 – March 22 exhibit in the Custom House Museum’s Bumpus Gallery will feature nearly 40 paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, prints, textiles, and ceramics, with a special opening reception on January 17.
Drawn entirely from the Florida Keys community, the exhibit illuminates the remarkable achievements of women artists, addressing the gender imbalance in the art world. Arts community leaders Jane Grannis, Martha Resk, Betty Gay, and Cori Convertito, Ph.D. will jury the exhibit.
The entry fee is $15, which will offset the cost of the opening reception and invitations. Only one submission per artist, with a deadline of December 15, 2019; all mediums and themes will be considered but work must have been completed within the last three years. Artist notification is December 30, with delivery dates January 6 to January 10. Please note that museum policies strictly prohibit the sale of any artwork during the exhibit.
