Andy Thurber —Contemporary Folk Artist

ABOUT

Andy Thurber

 

Andy grew up in an earlier Key West, before chain restaurants, when summers were sleepy. After crewing on a shrimp boat, sailing to Cuba during the Mariel boatlift, and helping bring more than 100 Cubans to freedom, he found his passion in art. 


Through watercolors, oils, acrylics, mixed media, and woodcarvings, Andy has chronicled the local characters, hangouts, and side streets of Key West for more than 30 years. 


A contemporary folk artist, he has gained invaluable experience and growth from his time as president and board member of the Key West Art Center, resident artist at The Studios Key West, and  member of the Lower Keys Artists Network. With  a permanent installation  for over 20 years at The Gallery on Greene, Andy is a well-respected and widely-collected artist.


In 2015, Andy relocated to Micanopy, in search of a slower-paced, old-Florida lifestyle. He has adapted his bold brush work and high energy watercolor style to the area and now captures the cracker heritage and dappled light through his forceful blending of subject, color, style and innovative composition. 


Andy opened his own gallery in February 2018 and can often be found painting en plein air throughout Florida.
