Our galleries, located in the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building at 601 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth, are free and open to the public Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

2,500 square feet of flexible gallery space showcases ongoing temporary exhibitions focused on art made in or unique to Palm Beach County. The exhibitions educate the public about art and artists, and provide exposure to artists in Palm Beach County so they can be more successful.

Further, with the Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation Artist Resource Center and Sallie and Berton E. Korman Education and Training Center, the Council focuses on the creation of art – How does the artist create? What process does he/she use? What does it take to make art? This carries through to all media of art: visual, music, dance, theatre, etc.

An exhibition of artwork by the faculty of the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts

May 25 through August 18
Member Preview: Thursday, May 24, 5:30-7:30 p.m. | Event Photos »

As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, it’s fitting to mount an exhibition celebrating the artist faculty of the school named after our founder, Alexander W. Dreyfoos. In 1997, Dreyfoos made the largest private contribution ever made to a public school in Florida when he pledged $1 million to support Palm Beach County School of the Arts, which was subsequently renamed in his honor. This exhibition honors each artist’s commitment to the students who continue to thrive under their guidance.

Wendy Boucher - Food Fight - Play With Your Food Exhibition

Wendy Boucher, “Food Fight,” 2017, paper collage on canvas, 10 x 10 inches

Play with Your Food!

September 14 through November 3
Member Preview and Annual Meeting: Thursday, September 13, 5:30-7:30 p.m. | RSVP Online »

The delights of the culinary world often lead to once-in-a-lifetime experiences that evoke comfort, tradition and culture. Food is also one of the ties that bind and bring friends and families together. Since people tend to eat with their eyes first, in this exhibition, 21 artists are encouraged to “play” with their food and create works of art in all media. From the painterly realism on canvas to the incredible mastery of bronze on display, here is where food will be transformed into something timeless.

I am 19 years old artist. I started painting when I was seven years old. I love to paint, coloring books, music, dancing, I love fish, birds, dogs and learning new art techniques.

When I am painting nobody can distract me, I stay focus and learn fast.

My mom is a great artist too, and we enjoy working as a team.
