  • Artist of the Month

    The Artist of the Month at the Cedar Keyhole in Cedar Key is acrylic painter Judi Cain. Her exuberant paintings are difficult to miss as you enter the Keyhole.

    Primarily abstract, these paintings are energizing and extraordinarily colorful. Judi also paints in a realistic fashion and these paintings feature native birds, flowers and portraits. She has giclee prints and cards of many of her works, so affordability is never an issue.
