The last Wednesday of each month will bring "On the Deck", a casual potluck to welcome our new Artists in Residence.
This event brings our "Studios family" together at our Ashe Street cottage to celebrate the most recent artists, coming from near and far, to grace us with their talent and share their work and aspirations for their time on the island.
Please bring an appetizer, salad, main dish, dessert or snack & The Studios will supply the beverages. All are welcomed to join!
The Fall foliage will be at its peak for The Studios’ customized tour of the many art destinations north of Manhattan. From the 19th century homes of the Hudson River School painters to the cutting edge contemporary art at Dia and Storm King, we’ll travel in style, feast on culture and and eat like kings.
Artist in Residence and renowned UK theater director, Laurie Sansom leads his students through a staged reading of short dramas by Tennessee Williams. Sansom’s students will showcase their honed acting skills while sharing some of Williams lesser known works with a Key West audience. A talkback with Sansom and his students will follow the performance.
One part performance, one part artist talk, one part environmental awakening.

A favorite holiday event returns to The Studios of Key West.

It is essentially the world’s biggest modern art museum re-assembled and re-curated every year. The depth and breadth of the artwork really must be seen to be believed.
Our luxury motor coach will depart Key West in the morning and reach the convention center in time for the noon opening. We will spend the day at the main Art Basel show. Entry is included in the price. There are also several satellite shows, such as Design Miami and Scope, within walking distance.
As parking can cost upwards of $30 per day and often isn’t available near the convention center, bus travel saves significant time and money, and is significantly less stressful.
Pictures tell stories. Stories paint pictures. In between is this thing artists try to get at. Slideshow takes live-without-a-net readings and combines them with carefully-curated projected images. It's a merging of two disparate creative processes.
A festive and creative setting where you can enjoy a few cookies and casually converse with (and support) local artisans. Featuring unique and locally produced gifts: jewelry, textiles, home accessories and quality crafts.

In 2002, American artist Hasan Elahi’s name was added (by mistake) to the US government’s watch list. Elahi was cleared of suspicions but advised to keep the FBI informed of his whereabouts. Which he did, fully, by opening up just about every aspect of his life to the public.
