Cedar Key Arts Center announced a new addition to its sculpture garden, a leaping dolphin, created by Patrick McGee. McGee casts hollow cement sculptures and covers them with a patina to resemble bronze or copper. The resulting sculpture is affordable. The pieces will be on display, and in cooperation with the Cedar Key Arts center, a portion of sales will be donated to the center.
Be sure to check out the garden while you are here, because McGee’s fondness for turtles has led him to cast giant sea turtle benches, which are now on display at the Arts Center Sculpture Garden. The benches are for sale, with proceeds going to help fund the arts center.
Also, please peruse our Keyhole artist co-op downstairs. Upstairs in the members art gallery are giftable items by local crafts people. We are happy to be able to offer such a wide array of holiday gift giving choices.
The gallery shows are open every day except Christmas and Thanksgiving day from 10-5 p.m. each day. The Cedar Key Arts Center is located on Second Street, across from the Quilt Shop.
