Today's Features

  • Artist of the Month for May 2012 at the Cedar Keyhole Gallery is Virginia Stevenson.
    Using a variety of fabrics and dyeing methods, Virginia Stevenson has steeply advanced the sophistication of her creations. Her works have appeared in a number of shows as well as collections. Stevenson has also been commissioned to devise fabric solutions for decorator challenges. Never idle, Stevenson uses many of her original fabric designs in producing ready-to-wear fashions. All of her latest creations will be on display at the Cedar Keyhole during the entire month of May.

  • At 79, Henry Gernhardt’s hands have twisted, turned, pressed, pounded, painted and baked globs of earth into works of art for more than 73 years.
    The artist, who now lives and works just outside of Cedar Key with his wife, Amy, grew up in rural Connecticut in a family he describes as being mostly engineers and mechanics.
    “I just couldn’t get into that,” he says. “I always did things different.”
    So, Gernhardt started a formal education in the arts at Norwich Art School in the early 1950s.

    I probably got started into composting for the wrong reason. In Iowa, John and I live on the Des Moines River and I love to garden.  As the years have passed, my flower beds have both grown in size and number, including a rather large wildflower bank meadow.  And if that isn’t enough, once the grandchildren started arriving, our fruit and vegetable gardens started growing as well.
