Friends new and old are invited to join us for this month’s First Thursday Open House event, when we keep our lights on late and throw our doors open to celebrate the newest work in our galleries. Stop in to say hello, relax with a glass of wine on the rooftop terrace, tour the third floor artist studios and see the just-installed exhibitions in the Sanger, XOJ, Zabar Project and Zabar Lobby Galleries. Books & Books is the next stop, where you can browse the latest titles and catch up with old friends.

21 PILLOWS

Cheryl Wilson-Smith

Sanger Gallery 

Experience an immersive environment designed by Wilson-Smith with atmospheric nature sounds from the Boreal forest filling the space and clusters of smooth glass stones covering the floor. Visitors are invited to explore, touch and rearrange the rocks, creating a community environment, filled with collective energy.

SILENCE

Rebecca Bennett

XOJ Gallery 

Bennett’s series of intimate paintings illuminate the slower side of Key West, and the expansiveness of vistas beyond the island. Each work is observed from nature, but not plein air, allowing her memory of the scene to inform the painting.

SOUTHERNMOST CYPHER

The Shavers Family

Zabar Project Gallery 

The Shavers depict the Black experience of Key West from their perspective—a family that has lived on the island for six generations. The exhibition includes the VMFA award-winning short, “Southernmost” alongside screen prints and photographs.

DRAWN TO KEY WEST

Chiechi has produced a 200-page graphic novel exploring the pirate magic behind Mallory Square. This exhibition will show large-scale images of each step of the comic-making process, from thumbnail sketches, rough pencil sketches, inked pages and finally to final colored comic pages.
