The Florida Keys Council of the Arts is holding its 2024 members show, “Living in Harmony,” with opening receptions in Key Largo on Thursday, Nov. 2 and Key West on Friday, Nov. 3.  

Member artists share in celebrating the theme of living in harmony with all, inspired by tropical landscapes, diverse culture, the unique history of the land and sea and the colorful sights and sounds of the Keys. 

The opening reception in Key Largo will go from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the Key Largo library, located in the Tradewinds Shopping Plaza at 101485 Overseas Hwy. The exhibit will be on display at the library during business hours through November.            

An opening reception in Key West will go from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Gato Building, 1100 Simonton St., Key West. The exhibit will remain on display through January 2024. This reception is sponsored by Ocean Sotheby’s Key West.

The Gato building, which is home to state and county offices, supports the Art in Public Buildings program, which offers an alternate space for artists to display their work. Free parking is available, and the building is ADA accessible. Refreshments will be served.

The Florida Keys Council of the Arts supports visual, literary and performing artists and cultural organizations throughout the Keys with several grant programs and scholarships, connecting artists to each other and to their audiences.
