Each winter season, Key West, Florida, hosts a temporary outdoor sculpture exhibit in its historic forts and beaches. Now in its eighteenth year, Sculpture Key West offers an extraordinary platform for emerging and established artists to showcase their work. This exhibit has enjoyed international response from sculptors and their audiences, who come to participate and view contemporary art in a subtropical environment.
This year’s exhibition includes large welded works, smog-absorbing concrete sculptures, six-foot forms of crocheted wire, and suspended, dreamlike illuminated mesh that responds to the movement of the air. Some sculptures were constructed onsite, and several were made using native materials such as local plant life.
Twenty artists are represented: Adam Russell, Justin Long, Liliana Crespi, Darryl Lauster, John Martini, Richard Brachman, Sunil Garg, Jacquelyn Sanchez, Bill Lorraine, Craig Gray, Eric H. Troffkin, Ursula Clark, James Racchi, Simran Johnston, Jiwan Noah Singh, William Bennett, Lorrie Fredette, Gereon Krebber, Joel Erland, and Kate Kaman.
The works are on view from December 8, 2013, through March 23, 2014, at West Martello Tower, home of the Key West Garden Club, and on adjoining Higgs Beach. Sculpture Key West is a nonprofit that relies on grants and donations for funding. Volunteers and support are always welcome. Follow Sculpture Key West on Facebook and at sculpturekeywest.org.
