Trip Report - Effusion Gallery, Key West, Florida

 Delighted to see that Pigsy is now available here in Key West at the fabulous Effusion Gallery on the world famous Duval Street.

Side note.  We bought a new sofa for the room where my Pigsy (Three Times Broke) is displayed.  And I think they both co-ordinate and really tie the room together.  I'm getting a new rug and coffee table now so will post photos of the full room in time

Myself, Patrick and our friend's from across the street took ourselves straight down to Effusion as soon as we heard they were on display.  We made an evening of it and had drinks and lobster rolls in DJ's Clam Shack which is literally two doors away from the gallery which was handy! Nothing beats those lobster rolls!  

It was a really great evening looking at the wonderful art pieces and chatting with the gallery director. The majority of these pieces were painted during his year long residency in Malaga, Spain and the vibrancy and colors capture and express this. 

Look at me in the bottom left picture.  I am pointing to the little red dot.   SOLD! "Power Supply" was sold on the very first day the collection was put on the walls.  

As a follow on from our little art gallery trip it was exciting to see a Pigsy write up, one week later in The Citizen Newspaper.

Effusion Gallery is a cool gallery infused with a pop art vibe combined with Florida's rich flavor of color, whimsy and eclectic culture. I think Pigsy is a perfect addition to their collection.  I recommend you check it next time you are in Key West!
