A message from
Owner & Curator
"Living on the docks on Stock Island for over 35 years has lead to an overview of the Keys that makes for being well-tuned to island life and connected in many … interesting ways. Our works range from paintings, sculpture, and glass, to antiques and island collectibles, from Cuban artists to local fine art furniture. Oils and acrylics, impressionism, art, magical realism, variety is one of our main components. The show is ever-changing and always unfolding. We’re open by appointment and
virtually for your viewing pleasure."

We have a wide variety of artists showing in our gallery cruise through some of their work.
A long time sign painter in Key West has given up his
lettering quill to paint maritime and architectural renderings. His work roams between tight photorealism and relaxed impressionism. His sense of color, perspective and proportion, honed from years of painting boat transoms, logos and local icons,
flows with ease.
Artist, Sign Painter, Cartoonist, ‘Henry’; paints our
town back to the days when Key West and Cuba were inseparable. His ability to capture a moment, one as long ago as 50 years, has made him a beloved time keeper for Key West. Still painting after all these years, Henry’s new work will be showing at the gallery as finished.
Using recovered Dade County pine and cypress from old Key West houses in the construction of her boxes, she exposes years and layers of our island's colorful past. Key West history is literally a part of her work.
Gruss, though earning a BFA in art design, is new to the world of sculpture. A technician in the metal industry by trade and authoring technical guides has lead to an outbreak of creative energy in his retirement years. Brad layers the local hardwoods of the keys, giving definition and character to his aquatic menagerie. As an avid hunter, fisherman, boater and wild game chef, he knows his creations inside and out. Whether leaving his specimen to be defined by the wood grain itself or painting the rainbow of colors of the dolphin or sailfish, Brad's schools of fish are telling of an angler's world.
My various talents have culminated into a loose sculptural design and execution. Exotic tropical hardwoods are shaped and polished and often sistered with intrinsic heirlooms. As in a wardrobe, certain colors and patterns naturally lend themselves to a predictable\ outcome. Take them out of their ‘accepted’ niche and they can pare to make another dimension a reality. My mission is to find function for the form. There are so many beautiful and exotic species of hardwoods here in the islands. We must preserve them when able, treasure them always and find use for them as they fall. Key West is beautiful, exotic, eclectic and eccentric.
