Cultural Council gallery - Made in Palm Beach exhibition

 

Main Gallery

Emilia Chang, Aya Huma, 2021, acrylic on paper, 12 x 9 inches

Exhibition: October 28, 2022 – January 14, 2023
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.

Brainstorming, 2020; yarn, glue, and acrylic paint on canvas; 40 x 30 x 6 inches

Michelle Drummond: Systems

Exhibition: October 14 – December 3, 2022
Artist Reception: October 13, 5 – 7 p.m. Click to RSVP.

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.

Pattern and Process

In Collaboration with:
WITVA - Women in the Visual Arts

September 30 – November 12, 2022

This exhibition was juried by the Palm Beach County organization Women in the Visual Arts. Each work is either pattern or process oriented. Pattern refers to the visual arrangement of elements in some kind of sequence or repetition such as a line of trees, a floral dress, the design of a flower, or the back-and-forth sway of the ocean. Process refers to retaining the method of making the work as a prominent aspect of the completed work; so that a part or even the whole of the work’s subject is the making of the piece.

Emerging Collector Tours

Interested in starting or expanding your art collection—or even learning more about the process? The Cultural Council makes it easy for collectors to access important work by both established and emerging Palm Beach County artists. When you purchase a piece from the Council, you’re directly benefiting local artists and supporting our mission to grow arts and culture in Palm Beach County.

In support of this effort, you can join us on an Emerging Collector Tour, where collectors at any level can learn more about the works on display in our gallery from participating artists, curators, and other professionals in the field. There are no upcoming Emerging Collector Tours currently scheduled for Summer 2022. Please stay tuned for any further updates.
