NEW EXHIBITION THAT OPENED LAST MONTH AT THE KEY WEST Museum of Art and History FOR ELIZABETH DEVRIES
The Key West Museum of Art & History to Open Exhibition Exploring the Sculptural Artwork of Elizabeth Devries
(KEY WEST, FL). The Key West Art & Historical Society is pleased to announce the opening of its forthcoming exhibition “Key West Shutter Stories: The Artwork of Elizabeth Devries.” Known locally as Lizzie the Shutter Lady, this exhibition will showcase her sculptural vignettes assembled from historic window shutters salvaged from Key West homes. More than 40 pieces will be presented offering a compelling view of how the artist recreates everyday scenes from reclaimed material. The Society welcomed the public to a special reception on October 12 at the Key West Museum of Art & History, 281 Front Street, to mark the exhibit opening.
Devries has been a craftsman in the Florida Keys for over thirty-four years, integrating historic pieces of old Key West into her three-dimensional works. She arrived in Key West in 1980 having no woodworking experience or knowledge of power tools. That quickly changed when she spotted a piece of wood that resembled a book. She set to work acquiring old house shutters – red from Tennessee Williams’ house, olive green from the Hemingway House and purple from the Artist House – in order to fabricate books and shelves to fashion an intricate library scene. Since then, Devries has crafted more than 100 diorama scenes, recreating familiar sights such as Sloppy Joe’s Bar, the Southernmost Point, Blue Heaven, Fuzzy’s Shoe Repair, and the Mariel Boatlift.
““Key West Shutter Stories” perfectly embodies the vision of the Key West Art & Historical Society, meticulously blending artistic imagination with historic vestiges from homes in Old Town,” says Dr. Cori Convertito, curator and historian for the Key West Museum of Art & History. “Her scenes embody a carefree spirit that is synonymous with the island’s blithe ambiance. Devries’ beautiful and intimate portrayals deliver a unique glimpse of her both as a person and artist.”
“Key West Shutter Stories: The Artwork of Elizabeth Devries” runs until January 1, 2024, in the Bumpus Gallery and is sponsored by the Florida Department of State, Division of Arts & Culture, with additional support provided by The Helmerich Trust. For more information, call Cori Convertito at 305-295-6616 x 507 or email@example.com. Your Museums. Your Community. It Takes an Island.

Departure Lounge Smoking Patio at EYW Permanently Closed
As part of Key West International Airport’s ongoing Concourse A project, the outdoor patio in the departures lounge closed Monday, November 6, 2023.
The closure was necessary due to operational constraints as part of the overall construction project, but also adds to Key West International Airport’s commitment to providing a safe, clean and healthy environment for travelers.
“We have joined more than 600 other smoke-free airports across the country,” said Richard Strickland, Executive Director of Airports. “With November being National Lung Cancer Awareness Month, paired with the Great American Smokeout on the third Thursday of the month, we believe November was an appropriate month for our airport to go smoke free.”
Included in the effort is a donation to Florida Keys Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) in the amount of $2,000. The airport’s community marketing program aims to foster goodwill throughout the Florida Keys with airport revenue funds. AHEC will use the funds to provide informational material about smoking cessation to the nearly 1.4 million passengers who use Key West International Airport annually.
Also, as part of the effort, newly appointed Mayor Holly Raschein proclaimed November Monroe County Smoking Cessation and Lung Cancer Awareness Month at the regular meeting of the Monroe County Board of County Commissioners on November 8.

Taken on the set of the film ' The Legend of Frenchie King (Les Pétroleuses) ', O’Neill would often speak about how he managed to capture the moment on film. “ I noticed that when the wind gusted there was the potential for a great picture. When the time came,
I only had a few frames left – my last shots. But suddenly the wind swept her hair across her face,
and I knew it was a knock-out. ”
Authorized by the Estate, this new edition brings a whole new life to this classic work. Artist Clayton Hickman, known for his work on images of The Beatles and Dr. Who, meticulously mimicked the colors by using source materials directly from the O’Neill archive as well as footage from the film.
Limited Edition of only 50 Prints and 10 Artist Proofs.
We have edition # 15/50 in the gallery.
Posthumous Edition: C-Type Print, digitally signed and numbered on the front, estate-stamped on reverse.
The print is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by the Estate.
