Your Guide to Key West Art Galleries
Art connoisseurs know art galleries come in all shapes and sizes. Different kinds of art, media, and artists all come together in one space, depending on a curator’s vision. So, go in with an open mind, and remember that gallery hours often vary–so double check before you go.
Key West Gallery
This Key West Art Gallery on Duval Street is in the heart of Old Town. A grand total of 66 artists produce a wide variety of art here.

Key West Art and Historical Society
Between Fort East Martello, the Custom House, Tennessee Williams Museum, and the Lighthouse & Keeper’s Quarters, you’ll find several miniature art galleries that support the big historical picture being painted for you as you tour the monuments. Throughout the whole collection by the Society, they’ve gathered up 35,000 art and historical artifacts.
Audubon House Gallery
When it comes to Key West art galleries, the Audubon House Gallery is not one of the more obvious choices, as the house itself is the main attraction. However, after seeing how the original house was decorated–as interior design is an art as well–make your way over to the Audubon House Gallery and see the small collection of John James Audubon originals, along with reproductions that you can purchase and take home with you as a small piece of Key West to have forever.
Zazoo Fine Art Gallery
Fans of Felix the Cat should stop at Zazoo Fine Art Gallery to meet the owner, Don Oriolo, who is the son of the creator of the cartoon. Besides his own art on display, find about a dozen each of painters and photographers. Even Getty Images has a collection at Zazoo.
