We’re stoked to kick off the ART! Key West!™ festival on Wednesday, November 27th at 6:00 pm at the ol’ tin shed.
We’ll feature open studios and workspaces of the artists and makers from The Projects while the interior space will transform into a gallery featuring fine and functional art produced entirely on location.
The Projects artists, Nellie Appleby, Adam Russell, Katie Crossland, and Cayman Smith-Martin will display their recent works, while COAST Founder Billy Kearins will use the evening as a chance to display his current surf and skateboard building experiments and exploits.
Said Billy, “In a general sense, COAST is—and will hopefully always be—a work in progress, but that’s not to say we haven’t produced any finished products out here. So we’re excited to present what’s been going, both finished and in the works, so that people can get a sense of the creative energy and potential that we work amongst each day.”
In addition to visual and functional art, the evening will feature live music by Cayman as part of the ongoing COAST Vibrations concert series.
COAST is the only Stock Island venue to be an official part of the AKW! festival which picks up again on Friday the 29th and runs throughout the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in Old Town.
