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.

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.

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 all facets of love, as a concept, represented in many ways: color, sensation, awareness, empathy or even through nature, technology, dance and beyond. Twenty Palm Beach County artists will be sharing their love in this exhibition, co-curated by artist, educator and designer, Kristin Miller Hopkins.

Hegina Rodrigues - Retrato

Hegina Rodrigues

From One to Another

May 4 through June 1

In 2018, the Dina Baker Fund for Mature Female Artists was awarded to the multitalented West Palm Beach artist, Hegina Rodrigues. Rodrigues travels the globe extensively and infuses her worldly comprehension and particular cultural variants into her work. Not just limited to two dimensions, she creates work with found objects into assemblage. Her process commingles with the art classes she teaches for children and adults across the world. This series represents her journey toward the abstract—beginning with the framed figurative on canvas and evolving into a detonation of form and color on a looser, more tapestry-like display, transcending style from one to another.
