The exhibitions educate the public about art and artists, and provide exposure to artists in Palm Beach County so they can be more successful.

Michael Dillow: CHASM

Exhibition: June 23 – August 5, 2023
Artist Reception: Thursday, June 22, 5 – 7 p.m. Click to RSVP.

CHASM is a photographic essay that investigates the connections between memory, state of mind, and geography through an exploration of South Florida’s enigmatic landscape. The title evokes the presence of an immense division between past and present while alluding to a shift in perspective resulting from a substantial life experience. The documentary-style work blends haunting and untraceable landscapes with contemplative portraits to conjure abstract psychological states. The open-ended narrative sequence suggests a confrontation with the unknown and underscores the tension between uncertainty and hope.

Patricia Lappin: Connections

2023 Dina Baker Award for Mature Female Artists Recipient

June 2 – July 14, 2023

The paintings in this show were produced from 2020 to 2023 and influenced by the worldwide events experienced by all. Patricia Lappin expresses the journey on canvas from missed family events (both joyful and tragic) to inner searching for meaning, acceptance, and celebration. Lappin says that it was “a confusing time for us all. We had to learn new ways to stay connected. We learned the beauty of our relationships with friends, family, and community. All of this is expressed in my work. I paint what I am feeling. We all have stories, and we can relate to each other through similar experiences. We are all connected.”
