En Plein Air - Roxene SloateEn Plein Air
April 11 through June 7, 2014

En plein air is a French expression meaning "in the open air" and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Artists have long painted outdoors, but in the mid-19th century working in natural light became particularly important to the Barbizon school and to the Impressionists. Since the advent of social media in the last decade there has been a resurgence of plein air painting groups.


In this exhibition the Council will exhibit drawings and paintings produced by local artists at ten different scenic locations throughout the county. All "paintouts" were facilitated by Donna Walsh and Ralph Papa, Co-organizers of Palm Beach Plein Air Artists.

Artist Lecture Series at the Cultural Council:

  • Tuesday, April 29 • 3 p.m.
    Ralph Papa and Donna Walsh discuss the Plein Air Palm Beach group
  • Tuesday, May 6 • 3 p.m.
    Ralph Papa on the joy of plein air painting

Barbara MackloweSolo Exhibitions
March 22 through April 19

Barbara Macklowe
Light and its elusive quality has always been a source of fascination and wonder. Barbara Macklowe is an artist "painting with light." Her work exhibits emotion and raw beauty and she treats the object, the light and the space in between in full color. She says, "I think, see and dream in color. My photography is a meditation allowing me to become one with the subject." Her background in antiques and decorative arts allows her eye to capture images and moments that are striking and uniquely her own.

Saturday, March 29 • 3 p.m. Barbara Macklowe will discuss her journeys and process in photography and book making.

Cynthia MaronetCynthia Maronet
Having her studio directly out her front door is a luxury Cynthia Maronet does not take for granted. The lush and tropical landscape is her muse and a perpetual source of inspiration. With a background in business and economics, it was not until the early 1990's that she pursued her true calling as a painter. Her artistic liberties have no constraints and her passion for knowledge, travel and her ever-present joie de vivre offer her work the vibrancy and acclaim that it deserves.
