LIVIN’ MY LIFE LIKE A SONG exhibit at Jag Gallery in Key West

LIVIN’ MY LIFE LIKE A SONG… a Jimmy Buffett tribute now open at the Jag Gallery

Duval Square’s Jag Gallery announces a very special exhibit, dedicated to and celebrating the life of Key West’s favorite son, the legendary Jimmy Buffett.  LIVIN’ MY LIFE LIKE A SONG features artwork and reflections from a circle of noted artist and writer friends including Dalva Duarte, David Wegman, Rita and Fred Troxel, Carl Hiaasen, Vaughn Cochran, Letty Nowak, Cayman and Robin Smith-Martin, Dan Rizzie, G. Love, Tony Caramanico and others with a generous portion of art sales donated to Singing For Change, one of Buffett’s favored organizations.

Of the exhibit, long time friend and guest curator Rita Troxel notes, ”I know Jimmy’s wish was for everyone to keep the party going- to be joyful.  It is a sweet desire and not always the easiest thing to do when you’re missing the guy, but who is not going to try and give him what he would want…RIGHT?  To that goal, with some of Jimmy’s exceptional friends who happen to be fine artists and writers involved I think it’s going to be a fascinating exhibit and that opening night will be a fine party!”

The exhibit opens with a gallery reception on Saturday, March 9th from 5:30 – 8:30 which is free and open to the public.   LIVIN’ MY LIFE LIKE A SONG continues through March 24th and is available for online viewing at jaggallery.art.
