MINIMALISM OBSERVED,  Jag Gallery’s new exhibit, opening on Friday, January 13th, welcomes two artists, both familiar to the local art community, for their formal Jag debuts.  Tory Mata and P. A. Blundell’s expressions in mixed media utilizing materials of all sorts deliver simple, yet complex executions, delicate and soothingly appealing as they are commanding.

Tory Mata, seen in group and solo shows in Key West is a two-time recipient of the Anne McKee Artist Grant and recently the prestigious Artist’s Grant from the South Florida Cultural Consortium for Monroe County explores, in her new body of work, the subtle nature of awareness  and the unifying balance of opposing beings to captivating effect.

Blundell, who shares his time between Key West and Ontario returned in November with a small trove of assemblage; sculptural works of found objects, masterly constructed during the summer from gatherings of last season’s explorations throughout the lower keys.

Also on view will be new works in bronze from award winning sculptor Walter Horak.

A gallery reception to to meet the artists, Friday, January 13th from 5-7 is free and open to the public.

Jag Gallery, recognized as one of the region’s finest, exhibits work of contemporary art from some of Key West’s most noted artists and others nationwide, is located at the Simonton Street entrance to Duval Square, 1075 Duval Street C 23 with ample, free parking is open daily.  For hours and additional information call 305.407.6202 or email and follow us on Facebook and  Instagram

There is no denying that the marine environment of the Florida Keys is special. We admire its sparkling turquoise color and refreshing temperatures. We are entranced by the diversity of life within it. We savor the seafood harvested from it and are grateful that the coral reef helps protect the island chain. Protecting it is a responsibility we all share.

Today, Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary faces increasing challenges from natural and human-caused stressors. We invite you to work with us to address these challenges and protect this unique ecosystem for future generations.

#2 Top Story: Eco-Discovery Center Redesign. Our 15-year old EDC has been given new life after a million-dollar renovation (thank you The Florida Keys & Key West) featuring interactive digital touchscreens, immersive underwater sounds and mangrove life, tactile touch boxes to explore sea grass beds, and activities to create awareness of our precious natural and cultural resources. Visitors will now able to create memories while posing on paddle boards in the #ILoveMySanctuary exhibit, while the Maritime Heritage exhibit uncovers cultural stories and artifacts from prehistoric through modern times. Coral restoration partner Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium updated its exhibit on coral nurseries.

#1 Top Story: Restoration Blueprint. Nearly 6,000 public comments were received during a 100-day review of our proposed rule, moving us one step closer to the first update of NOAA Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary regulations in more than a generation.

#5 Top Story: Diving with a Purpose. The FKNMS maritime heritage team renewed its partnership with Diving With A Purpose, an avocational archaeological training program, to map a shipwreck visited by many at Hen and Chickens Reef off Islamorada. Almost 30 divers joined the FKNMS team to investigate the “Brick Barge” sunk in 20 feet of water. Many snorkelers and divers visit the site, but little was known about it until the investigation. In addition to documenting the site for an interpretative dive map, researchers connected it to a shipwreck carrying a cargo of brick to Key West.

At the first meeting of the year for the Key West Business Guild, Mayor Teri Johnston presented the Guild's Executive Director Kevin Theriault the first-ever Rainbow Key to the City in honor of his amazing dedication to the city and the LGBTQ+ community.

Key West Police Chief Sean Brandenburg on Monday promoted Lt. Dave Black to the rank of Captain, an honor signifying his last day with the department after more than 25 years of dedicated service.

Capt. Black joined the department in May of 1998 after serving in the U.S. Coast Guard. He was promoted to the rank of sergeant in 2002 and to lieutenant in 2006, serving as the commander of the Special Operations bureau.

In this role he oversaw the Marine Unit, the Motor Unit, the Special Response Team, the Dive Team, and the Mounted Unit. He served for many years as the lieutenant of the Detectives Division.

Capt. Black's dedicated commitment and work as an officer led to the formation of the K9 Unit as well as the Special Response Team.

The crowd that turned out for his promotion ceremony was a testament to the close bonds Capt. Black has built with his colleagues and with the community.

"It has truly been an honor to serve with Dave Black," said Chief Brandenburg. "He is a dedicated leader who has mentored many officers in this department. He leads by example. We wish him well in his future endeavors, but he will be missed by the Key West Police Department."

In the photo: Capt. Dave Black, City Manager Patti McLauchlin, and Chief Sean Brandenburg.

Mayor Teri Johnston and the Key West City Commission proclaimed the week of January 8th as Key West Elks Lodge 551 Commitment to Autism Week.

The members of Key West Elks Lodge 551 have served the veterans, youth, and the entire community of Key West for decades through scholarship programs, grants and volunteer service for individuals and non-profit groups. They support community organizations such as Take Stock in Children, Florida Keys Cancer Society, and the SOS Foundation with grants funded through the Grand Lodge Gratitude Grant program and their numerous local fundraisers.

Most recently the Elks Lodge donated $10,000 to the Autism Society of the Keys (ASK.)

"Autism is at a staggering statistic of one in 32 children in the US," said Hope Haley, a member of ASK. "Together with our community, we have supplied over 300 sensory boxes to every police, fire, ambulance, school, day care, hospital, and airport in the Keys."

These sensory boxes contain comfort items that help people with autism during stressful situations. All of the agencies are trained in responding to emergencies with the aid of these tool kits. They contain items like white erase boards for non-verbal people, noise-canceling headphones, weighted pillows, and fidget spinners.

"Our mission is to improve the lives of those affected with autism," said Haley, "so they can have independent lives.

Key West Mayor Emeritus Dennis Wardlow, a member of Key West Elks Lodge 551, said a special thanks to members of the community who made it possible to make this generous donation to ASK.



The second Cemetery Stroll to be offered at the Historic Key West Cemetery this season will take place on Sunday February 12th, 2023. During the stroll, small groups of visitors will be escorted to gravesites where interpreters will tell the stories of the deceased in brief monologues. The groups are scheduled for departures at 9:30, 9:50, and 10:10 am. Reservations are necessary, and can be made by calling or texting (305) 304-1453 or by emailing at


Among the gravesites we plan to visit are those of Carrie Pierce, William Kerr, Charles Dupont, John Bartlum, the Dade Lodge Plot, and the monument Los Martires De Cuba. 


The tour will take approximately 90 minutes. Participants should wear comfortable shoes and plan to walk over a mile on uneven ground. Bottled water will be provided.


This is an excellent opportunity to learn first-hand about some of the fascinating people who have given Key West its colorful and significant character. Space is limited for the tours and pre-registration is required. A donation of $20 (cash or check) per person to the Historic Florida Keys Foundation is recommended, with all proceeds devoted to cemetery restoration. Participants may enter the cemetery by either the Windsor Street or Frances Street gate and go to the registration table on Palm Avenue.


The last stroll of the season will feature other gravesites and take place on March 5th.


The cemetery strolls are sponsored by the City of Key West and the Historic Florida Keys Foundation.

Dear Friends:

Over the years, South Florida Symphony Orchestra has worked closely with the Florida Keys Council of the Arts and Monroe County Public School District to bring music to the children.


Our 25th Season is underway, and we're gearing up for the return of our Symphony in the Schools program “Preserving Our Coral Reefs,” provided free to participating Monroe County Public Schools. The concert coincides with our season-opening concert in Key West on January 28, 2023. For us to bring this important program to the children of the Florida Keys, we need to line up musician housing from January 26-29. Several patrons have indicated an interest in hosting, so we are following up on your availability to host our artists in your home while they are in the Keys for the children’s program. 


To be successful, we need 43 beds to accommodate 43 musicians to provide service to 2,000 first, second and third graders at the January 26 children's concert at Coral Shores and the January 27 children's concert at Key West High School.  


• Musician Key West Arrival: January 26, 2023

• Musician Key West Departure: January 29, 2023


If you can host, please provide your name, hosting address, and size of bed (single, double or king-size bed/s). During their stay, we are requesting private bedrooms and bathrooms for their use. Are there any restrictions or preferences (i.e., male or female, etc.)? Musicians are responsible for their own transportation and meals. Please indicate if the musicians will have kitchen privileges.


If you are unable to host a musician in your home, we would be grateful if you could sponsor a musician's stay in our partner hotel for $275 for the concert.


If you wish to underwrite a musician's hotel stay or donate to the concert, please contact Jacqueline Lorber at or 954.522.8445. If you agree to host a musician, we will be happy to provide you with two complimentary tickets to the January 28th concert at Tennessee Williams Theatre in exchange for your hospitality.


In closing, we’d like to thank the house hosts who have already committed to assisting us with our housing needs.


Thank you,

Jacqueline Lorber

MORE ABOUT "PRESERVING OUR CORAL REEFS": The concert “Preserving Our Coral Reefs” highlights the plight of the world's coral reefs, including Florida’s own 300-mile-long reef, and the efforts to save it. Through science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM), students will learn of individuals such as Dr. David Vaughan, whose pioneering discovery of coral microfragmentation has sped up the reproduction of more resilient corals that can be transplanted onto a reef, thus leading to its survival!

JANUARY 13, 2023 "REPAIRS" by Michael Marrero

FEBRUARY 10, 2023 "SMITHTOWN A Play by Drew Larimore Produced and Directed by Stephen Kitsakos. I believe these plays are on Video to View. Below are the January Exhibitions at TSKW

Here are the January 2023 Exhibitions at The Studios of Key West

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: "SOUTHERNMOST CYPER" Lindsey Shavers, Max Shavers, & Sydney Shavers.

Zabar Project Gallery

Sponsored by Marquesa Hotel & Cafe

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.

In the mid-1800s, eight Shavers men, born free in Bedford, VA, travelled 1,000+ miles over land and sea to build new lives on the undeveloped and remote island of Key West. They were here when Sandy Cornish led the island’s first jubilee parade, honorably served as soldiers in the U.S. Civil War alongside Harriet Tubman, then returned to the island to help build modern Key West. In the 1940s, the family helped build the bridges that connect the Keys to the mainland.

Chiechi has produced a 200-page graphic novel exploring the magic behind Mallory Square. From anchorage to attraction, this small Gulfside spot holds a strange draw which Chiechi explores through interviews and colorful sketches.

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. The exhibit will highlight the steps made before even making any artwork, including reference photos taken around the island and at Mallory Square, sketchbook drawings, and interview questions.
