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.

All life requires light. Artists seem uniquely able to surf the shadows, seek the rainbows, capture the glimmers, and corral light in their work. The art exhibited here depends on light to complete its narrative. From the objects captured on film by the available light through a pinhole camera lens, the wax encaustic-layered painting catching shimmers in the raking light, the dome with swirls enlivened by the light within, and the stained glass casting rainbows on the walls, these artworks display the prismatic qualities of light.

In response to the recent series of events that spurred local, national, and global response, a group of Palm Beach County Black artists have stepped up to engage the community through art. Serving as both communicators and problem-solvers, 10 visual and spoken word artists will provide content regarding four centuries of turmoil and social and civil injustice. Since the revolution has already been televised, these artists will contribute to continuing conversations and help build solutions through art.

Keren Schwindt - Iceland
Iceland, acrylic on canvas, 48″ X 60″

Keren Schwindt: Abstracta

October 10 – November 7

Keren Schwindt is an emerging, self-taught South Florida artist who was so inspired by the beauty of her surroundings that she had to paint. She has spent most of her professional career working in medicine, while simultaneously pursuing the arts. After spending some time touring abroad and studying the works of great artists at the Louvre and Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Prado Museum in Spain, and even in Iceland, Keren developed a contemporary style all her own. Her work marries a touch of whimsy to surrealism, impressionism, and cubism in abstraction. Raised in both Hispanic and Asian cultures, Keren often sees touches of those influences in her work as well. By applying abstraction, Keren creates intense personal moments created by rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer to new and heightened experiences of the everyday.
