    PUT THE LIME IN THE COCONUT BY ALAINA PLOWDREY

  • PO BOX 2069, Ke y West, FL 33045-2069www.mckeefund.org

    Dear Friends, Patrons and fellow Artists:

    Welcome to the Anne McKee Artists Fund Fine Art Auction. We as a board have worked hard to bring you a fine selection of top-notch work, showcasing both established artists and emerging talent. This is the only venue in the Keys offering such a wide selection of art and artists in one place. We hope you will enjoy the art, the convivial atmosphere, the excitement of a live auction, and the satisfaction of helping us keep the arts vital in Key West. It is your participation that makes it all possible.

    2014 marks over twenty years holding the auction and supporting the arts. In that time the Fund has awarded over $210,000 in project-specific grants, mostly of $1000 each. This is seed money that can make the difference between a great idea remaining simply that or taking flight into actuality. The money these grants provide is further leveraged by an organizational framework and a lively network of active support in the community. The program has been a springboard for the aspiring and inspired, and has provided the community with many artworks and performances that otherwise may not have come to fruition. We thank you for helping to make that happen.

    This year we return to historic Fort East Martello for the preview week as well as the auction gala itself. Auctioneer Tom Luna, flanked by the inimitable Vannas, will lead the fray, introducing the work and spurring on the bidding while regaling us with local color. A sampling of past contributors to the auction includes artists represented in collections nationally and internationally: Jim Salem, Keith Bland, Sal Salinero, Andy Thurber, Anja Marais, Rick Worth, William Welch, Letty Nowak, Lynne Bentley-Kemp, Richard Weatherwax, Michael Palmer, Meghan Cappozi, Vera Vasek, Jon McIntosh, Deborah Goldman, and Leo Gullick (the latter three also recognized by the State of Florida as Cultural Consortium grant recipients).

    In addition, this year we are also honoring Jon McIntosh with the Miriam B Good award in recognition of his extraordinary dedication to the Anne McKee Artist Fund. Jon now serves as an advisory board member and each year continues to give of his talent to the fund.

    As always, 50% of the auction proceeds benefit the Fund which provides grant support to literary, visual and performing artists in the Keys, and 50% percent of the proceeds may be retained by the artist testament to our communitys historic commitment to the Arts. A hand up, not a hand out.

    Again, a warmest welcome to our annual Auction. Raise your paddles high, bid early and often, and take home something beautiful!
