Key West – American Paradise
Key West. Where America dances off into paradise. Where ancient treasures lie entombed in sunken sail ships. A place of dreams and mysteries. Of fables and fun. And the modern treasures of LIK KEY WEST.
Ready to escape? It’s almost as if the Florida Keys were made for just that purpose. And there’s no more breathtaking escape once you’re there than immersing yourself in the captivating scenes of Peter Lik’s fine art photography. Wander through the charming island-style space and take trip after trip with each majestic image you peruse. In typical island fashion, the gallery staff will assist you with warmth and wit while keeping things very low pressure. LIK KEY WEST is one of the great treasures of the Florida Keys – and you won’t need to scuba to see its gems.
Q&A with Gallery Director William Dammann:
How long have you been director at LIK KEY WEST?
I’ve been the director here for over three years but I’ve been with Peter’s company for about five years. In that time I’ve been a part of opening four galleries for Pete. A gentleman named Trevor Barr is my Associate Director.
What do you like most about your job?
I truly love presenting Pete’s masterful photography to the world. And I love being surrounded by these images every day. I mean, what a great environment to work in!
What’s your favorite Peter Lik photograph?
My all-time favorite Peter Lik image is “Ancient Spirit” yet I own more than a dozen. I guess you could say I can’t get enough!
Do you have a memorable collector experience?
I have so many! From color-blind grown men in tears because they had seen and understood blue or green for the very first time, to honeymooners celebrating their love, to famous collectors. I would say that my most memorable experiences are the ones that make life-long collectors and friends from the first sale!
