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.

What better way to celebrate the summer than to see an expansive set of artwork presented by local artists? Every two years, professional Palm Beach County artists working in a wide variety of media share their work in the Cultural Council’s biennial summer exhibition. This year’s Biennial exhibition was juried by Melanie Johanson, curator of contemporary art at the Cornell Art Museum. Prizes will be awarded for Best of Show, Second Place and Third Place at the Member Preview, as well as a People’s Choice award—an opportunity for patrons to vote for their favorite—which will be open to the public through July 27.

Bea Doone-Merena - Outstretched Arms

National League of American Pen Women
Boca Raton Branch

June 8 through August 10

The Boca Raton Branch of the National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW) is an organization of professional women in the arts – artists, music composers, and writers. Established 43 years ago, the Boca Raton Branch is one of the largest Branches in the country. Members have opportunities to interact with other professional women and showcase their creative work in public forums. Workshops, art exhibits, music programs, competitions and special events are offered. The Branch supports the local community through outreach programs and scholarship awards.

The National League, headquartered in Washington, D.C., is the oldest women’s organization in the United States. Throughout its 120-year history, the NLAPW has attracted many prominent women to its rosters, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Pearl Buck, Erma Bombeck, and Edna Hibel. Vinnie Ream, whose statue of President Lincoln stands in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, was an early member of the NLAPW.
