Key West Art & Historical Society’s exhibit “On the Waterfront: Truman Annex Artists” opens with a special reception on Friday, January 12th from 6:00pm-8:00pm, in the Bryan Gallery at the Custom House Museum located at 281 Front Street.  The exhibit features historic and contemporary works of some of Key West’s celebrated artists that rented spaces between 1974-1986 in the decommissioned naval warehouses, machine-shops, and residential facilities for use as studios after the U.S. Navy abandoned their base on the present-day Truman annex.

Artists include John Martini, Helen Harrison, Judi Bradford, Grillo Demo, Dalva Duarte, and Stephanie Sanchez, with black and white photographs of the Annex and studios taken by Monroe County Public Library’s former contract photographer Adolph Gucinski serving as the backdrop.

The exhibit is open to the public from 6:00pm-8:00pm, with a suggested donation of $10 for non-members, and free VIP access and reception from 5:30-6:00pm for KWAHS members.  For more information, call Cori Convertito, PhD. at 305.295.6616 x 112 or visit kwahs.org.  Your Museums.  Your Community.  It Takes an Island.
