Our galleries, located in the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building at 601 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth, 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.

The delights of the culinary world often lead to once-in-a-lifetime experiences that evoke comfort, tradition and culture. Food is also one of the ties that bind and bring friends and families together. Since people tend to eat with their eyes first, in this exhibition, 21 artists are encouraged to “play” with their food and create works of art in all media. From the painterly realism on canvas to the incredible mastery of bronze on display, here is where food will be transformed into something timeless.
Join us for our Saturday Lecture Series, September 15 through October 27 to hear from some of your favorite artists from the show!

Graffiti isn’t a new concept in the artistic world. Its various manifestations in the past include inscribed obscenities in ancient stone, “Kilroy was here” doodles in World War II and the many colorful, spray-painted images that decorated public places in the 1980s. Then, graffiti was considered an unwelcome form of vandalism. Now with the evolution of graffiti as mural art (à la Banksy), these lines have become blurred, and the people behind the work have transformed from “misguided youths” to professional artists. This exhibition showcases the talents of our local artists (emerging to professional) and focuses on the many styles and maturation of graffiti and mural art.

Love is a universal language— whether it’s between two people, the world around us, or even self-love—this complex emotion spans cultures and defines who we are. In this exhibition, there are representations of the all facets of love, as a concept, represented in many ways: color, sensation, awareness, empathy or even through nature, technology, dance and beyond.
May 31 through August 10
