The Anne McKee Artists Fund of the Florida Keys Inc. has announced a Call to Artists for its 2021 Fine Art Auction. To observe social distancing, the auction will be held online, Feb. 4-17.

The submission period for artwork continues through midnight Nov. 15. Applications are available and submitted online with accompanying photo(s), at www.mckeefund.org.

Artists will be notified of acceptance no later than Dec. 1.

From Feb. 4 to 17, The Studios of Key West will host a gallery show of accepted works available for up close and personal viewing.

Each participating artist receives 50% of the proceeds from the sale of his or her work, while the McKee Fund receives the remainder to award to other Keys artists for select projects. The annual art auction raises money for project-based grants to Keys visual, literary and performing artists.
