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.

The professional artists of Palm Beach vary—from traditional painters to eccentric sculptors, and everything in between. What better way to welcome 2020 than with Palm Beach’s finest?

Made in Palm Beach is curated by Nichole M. Hickey.

“Faces of Food” is a photographic exploration of the men and women that create, cook, and prepare food in South Florida. Featuring striking, evocative and moody imagery of chefs, bartenders, brewers, farmers, and pastry artists, the work seeks to document and highlight the passion and personalities behind the local food landscape.

Libby Volgyes is an award-winning food and beverage photographer based in West Palm Beach. She previously worked as a photojournalist for The Palm Beach Post and now operates Libby Vision, a food photography studio. In the spring of 2019, Libby’s project “Faces of Food” was selected to exhibit at the Food Photo Festival in Vejle, Denmark.

Talin Lyman - Palm Leaves I

Talin Lyman
Varietals

November 16 through December 14

Talin Lyman’s recent series of paintings, “Varietals,” are the result of the artist’s experimentation and study of a new technique using varietals of red wine as her medium. Layers upon layers of Cabernet, Merlot, Bordeaux, Pinot Noir, Malbec and Red Zinfandel wines are meticulously painted onto French archival watercolor paper, creating a full-bodied and elegant work of art. Although she became well known in the design world for her vibrant tropical colors, the subtle spirit of this collection leaves quite an impact. Her wine paintings take on a unique patina and exhibit a chiaroscuro effect with a modern twist. talinlyman.com
