Hop on a bike or carpool with friends for this year’s Artist Studio Tours on Saturday, March 12 from 11am-3pm, and spend a luxurious, art-filled afternoon exploring the creative homes and workspaces of artists. Produced by The Studios of Key West, the annual Studio Tours are one of the premiere art events of the season.
Stop #1 – The Studios of John Martini and Carol Munder Working from his amazing workshop — a former movie theater on Emma Street — John Martini, one of Key West’s and France’s leading artists, transforms new and recycled steel into otherworldly sculptures. Artist Carol Munder makes her prints on a gravure press upstairs and exhibits widely, both nationally and internationally. She is a recent recipient of the prestigious South Florida Cultural Consortium prize.
Stop #2, The “dePoo Palace,” on Dey Street, the former home of the late Suzie dePoo, now a creative hive of activity for artists and musicians. An icon of Key West’s artistic history, dePoo left her indelible mark on the island with her fantastically imaginative glass sculptures and colorful textile designs. Several artists now work from studios there, including Marlene Koenig, Heather Mackenzie, Andy and Steve Baxter, and others.
Stop #3 – The Studios’ Carriage Trade Guesthouse. Now home to the Peyton Evans Artists Residency Program at The Studios of Key West, the classic conch-style building at 529 Eaton Street was built in 1938. The beautiful property and its courtyard has a long and storied history as a gathering space, having served as a beauty salon, a guest house and a supper-club style restaurant. Meet the current Artists in Residence and learn about plans to update and renovate the historic property.
Stop #4, The outdoor studio of sculptor Sally Wernicoff. Wernicoff began studying sculpture in the early 1990s. Her figures in clay, stone and plaster—which she creates in an outdoor studio adjacent to her home on Georgia Street—are in many private collections in Key West and abroad.
Stop #5 Artist Eric Anfinson’s Mockingbird Studio. Working form a freestanding studio in the native gardens of his home on Catherine Street, Anfinson paints stylized portraits and luminous scene studies that are emotionally honest and unabashedly romantic.
