Frederick Croen’s photographs from 2020-21 reflect a year of introspection, reimagining, and transition—a year of limits and opportunity. Instead of traveling, the artist stayed close to home and changed the way he looked at his photography. It became a year of discovery where he found a richness in state and county parks, natural areas, beaches, and hiking trails that he had not previously visited. He traversed areas with magical names like Loxahatchee Slough, Grassy Waters, Riverbend Park, Coral Cove, Cypress Creek, Loggerhead Park, and Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. These areas offered social distancing, solitude, and peace; they allowed for quiet reflection, as well as physical activity. They also offered inspiring vistas for photography. Croen reimagined himself as a tourist in his own backyard and the images he took reflect the introspection and solitude of the year.
Amy S. Broderick: Ledger & Loom
Exhibition: June 17 – July 30, 2022
Artist Reception: June 17, 5 – 7 p.m. Click to RSVP.
Amy S. Broderick uses forgotten photographs, discarded office supplies, found atlases, and related ephemera to make complex paper compositions. She cuts and weaves each page by hand to make elaborate layered structures and images. Her work marks the passing of time, as forgotten slivers of other people’s daily lives coalesce to tell new tales. This exhibition invites viewers to imagine a space where obsolescence and disconnection become the warp and weft of new territories. Broderick is a professor at Florida Atlantic University.

Grantee for Palm Beach County
Exhibition: April 22 – June 4, 2022
On the southern tip of Lake Okeechobee lies Belle Glade, a city that hides a rich history that details how people arrived here in Florida. Sofia Valiente moved there in 2015 and soon after read works by authors Lawrence E. Will and Zora Neale Hurston. Will painted a picture of the pioneers who developed the area through persistence and foresight, and Hurston gave a voice to the workers who built the Glades with their bare hands. Their writing became Valiente’s framework for exploring the past and looking at its contemporary parallels. In this time capsule, history is present. Roots run deep and the pioneer spirit can still be felt.
2022 Dina Baker Award for Mature Female Artists Recipient
Exhibition: June 10 – July 30, 2022
Artist Reception: June 10, 5 – 7 p.m. Click to RSVP.
2022 Dina Baker Award recipient Michele Hundt’s recent paintings were inspired by her observation of the cypress swamp in the Palm Beach Polo Club. Contemplating this natural area, she worked to imbue the paintings with her emotional vision. Hundt says that “this was a dark, wet, and—in many ways—inscrutable place. It’s a black swamp: the sun lights up the trees, but it cannot penetrate the water.” In another series of paintings called Marsh Motions, the artist depicts the trees that have migrated from swamp to sand. All of the paintings within this exhibition are based on her emotional observation of landscapes and symbolize her vision of the world today.

Emerging Collector Tours
Interested in starting or expanding your art collection—or even learning more about the process? The Cultural Council makes it easy for collectors to access important work by both established and emerging Palm Beach County artists. When you purchase a piece from the Council, you’re directly benefiting local artists and supporting our mission to grow arts and culture in Palm Beach County.
In support of this effort, you can join us on an Emerging Collector Tour, where collectors at any level can learn more about the works on display in our gallery from participating artists, curators, and other professionals in the field. There are no upcoming Emerging Collector Tours currently scheduled for Summer 2022. Please stay tuned for any further updates.
