Cultural Council gallery - 10x10

 

Behind the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building along South L Street you’ll find the Cultural Council’s Project Space, which is used for activities, as well as sculpture or other site specific installations, and offers a commanding view of is the giant, kaleidoscopic Martin Luther King, Jr. mural on the south side of the Cultural Council’s headquarters.

This mural was created in 2017 during CANVAS Outdoor Museum by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, who is known for his colorful, photorealistic murals. The Cultural Council chose Martin Luther King, Jr. as the subject of the mural because he represents the important ideas of heroism, community resilience, and the power to make positive change.

Every two years, professional Palm Beach County artists working in a wide variety of media share their work in the Cultural Council’s biennial exhibition. This year’s show is juried by Aldeide Delgado, founder and director of Women Photographers International Archive (WOPHA). Prizes will be awarded for Best of Show, Second Place, and Third Place, as well as a People’s Choice award.

“The selected artists for the 2021 Biennial work in a wide range of media, often challenging the traditional boundaries of painting, video, photography, and installation. They reflect on crucial topics of our time, subverting the patriarchal and colonial narratives of race and gender, and encourage conversations about the immediate environmental crisis and impacts of the pandemic on our society.”

Ann Friedlander - Fire
Fire, 2020, oil on panel, 36 x 36 inches

Ann Friedlander: The Language of Shapes

March 26 – April 16

This exhibition explores meaning without verbal narrative. Shadows, perspective, and atmosphere have been eliminated. The intent is to keep distant from the border where abstraction touches realism and play the game of color.


Helen Levin - Arch Homage 10
Arch-Homage 10, 2014, acrylic on canvas, 42 x 42 inches

Helen Levin: Gestural Abstraction

April 23 – May 22
Artist Reception: Saturday, April 24, 5 – 7 p.m.

All the paintings in this retrospective are works of Helen Levin’s mature style developed in the new millennium. The art reflects her passion for rigorous involvement with the discipline of abstraction, honed in an intense struggle. Levin can be described as a “formalist,” and through improvisation, she learns and keeps learning about the mystery of the innate spirit of herself.
