Member Preview: October 27, 5:30–7:30 p.m. Click to RSVP online.
Art Talk: Panel Discussion with Curator Juliana Forero: November 5, 2022 at 2 p.m. Click to RSVP online.

This exhibition will highlight diverse works by more than 20 Palm Beach County artists from a wide range of Latin American origins. Guest curator Juliana Forero (founder of Nomad Art Projects) will weave a story with the work of artists whose families come from Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Guatemala, and Cuba, among others. Forero expects both unified and diverging themes to emerge from which she can develop a narrative of these many groups crossing, sharing, and protecting their unique heritage. The aim of this exhibition is to highlight the range of Latin American experience by celebrating the art of its people. The exhibition will include didactic materials and opportunities for tours in Spanish and English.

Michelle Drummond: Systems

Exhibition: October 14 – December 3, 2022

Working with various weights and colors of yarn to build three-dimensional forms on and off the canvas and wood panel, Michelle Drummond incorporates her fiber with acrylic painted surfaces to create whimsical narratives of strength, perseverance, and optimism. Her new piece Restless (2022) is a reference to the drive to pursue the opportunities needed to achieve goals and aspirations. It is a visual representation of the mind constantly churning, assessing, and questioning as well as a vision of thoughts translated into action. These and other philosophical ideas are the foundation of Drummond’s work in this series of Systems.

David Rubinson: Intimations of the Infinite

Exhibition: December 9, 2022 – January 21, 2023
Artist Reception: December 8, 5 – 7 p.m. Click to RSVP.

David Rubinson’s work is informed by ideas and creations associated with various cultural and artistic traditions such as Tibetan and Indian mandalas, Islamic architecture, Tantric rituals, and Sacred Geometry, as well as Dutch Nature Morte paintings and light displays of Las Vegas and Atlantic City in the 1950s and 60s. The work is created with multiple 3D and motion graphics software and rendered as finely detailed, high-resolution photographic prints and video animations. Both his prints and videos incorporate disparate elements that when combined speak of symmetry, pattern, cadence, and rhythm. His work aspires to create an experience of transcendental beauty and well-being.
