Sandford Birdsey retrospective exhibit to be presented by Key West Art & Historical Society at Custom House Museum
Key West Art & Historical Society invites the community to a special reception on Friday, February 21, 2020 from 6:00pm -7:30pm to celebrate the opening of Sandford Birdsey’s retrospective exhibit in the Bryan Gallery at the Custom House Museum, 281 Front Street. The exhibit showcases many watercolors, oils, acrylics, and textiles created during the course of her career.
A Key West resident from 1980 until her death in 2010, much of Birdsey’s art depicts the essence of Key West: boats, water, tropical foliage, Victorian gingerbread, street people, pets, and free-roaming chickens with lively color, bold strokes, and unique humor. The accomplished artist, silk screener, and mosaic and mural designer exhibited widely and was also a well-regarded teacher who impacted many of today’s successful island artists.
“Sandford Birdsey: A Retrospective” runs until April 11, 2020. For more information call Cori Convertito, Ph.D., at 305-295-6616 x112, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit kwahs.org. Your Museums. Your Community. It Takes an Island.
