Our galleries, located in the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building at 601 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth Beach, 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.
Directly south of the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building is the Cultural Council’s Project Space, which will feature new sculpture by Lucy Keshavarz (through May 2019) and offers a view of the giant Martin Luther King, Jr. mural by Brazilian artist, Eduardo Kobra.

Award-winning Photographer, Bob Chilton pushes the artistic boundaries between art and technology to create unique art pieces. In this exhibition, he uses meticulously placed mirrors to distort perspectives through methods that go beyond simple post-editing. These images ae a testament to the fact that true mastery of the photograph is required with the camera as well as the computer. Chilton has been behind a camera since the “film days”, always searching for the next best way to create art through photography. His artistic eye, combined with studied knowledge of the digital world, allows him to constantly capture the viewers’ attention.

Mysteries of the Feminine
October 12 through November 9
Ignatius is a European artist who brings a new approach to express the feminine essence stripped of patriarchal signifiers without anti-patriarchal reactions.
He deconstructs his canvases as a symbol representing the removal of prejudices. The mystique unfolds through a build-up of mixed media to create three-dimensional work revealing multiple versions of the female spirit.
As a counterpoint of the internet era, he breaks the monotony of the two-dimensional world and engages the presence of the spectator. Then, in the space between the original myth and the reconstruction, a new critical view of femininity is born.
Ignatius is part of the Agora® Gallery’s artist family established in New York. He currently lives and works in Lake Worth Beach, Florida.
