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 Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 12 p.m to 5 p.m.
Our main gallery and Donald M. Ephraim Family Gallery showcase 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 is used for rotating sculpture displays and occasional events, and offers a view of the Martin Luther King, Jr. mural by Brazilian artist, Eduardo Kobra, on the back of the main building.

There are many reasons why people move to Palm Beach County—the amazing weather, exciting arts and culture, and a variety of outdoor experiences. With this growth in population, there comes a need to explore the impact on local environment. This exhibition features installations, photography and more that illustrate each artist’s perspective on the topic of nature.
This exhibition is curated by Nichole M. Hickey.

VIA – Voices In Art
March 7 through April 4
VIA is a collective of women visual artists from Palm Beach County who have been meeting regularly for the past 16 years to support, encourage, critique and share each other’s creative talents.
The VIA body of work has evolved over time, producing new abstracts and collage works with innovative style and originality. This is VIA’s first exhibition, and it is in memoriam of the group’s late founder Natalie Gottlieb, an avid painter and writer.
“What is the criteria by which an artist in VIA derives their inspiration to make art for their viewers and collectors,” said VIA member Kathryn Carlyle. “Perhaps it occurs after our lucid dreams, or is simply derived from our own vivid imagination. Come into the world of VIA’s eyes and experience our visions.”

2019 Dina Baker Fund for Mature Female Artists Grantee
February 29 through March 28
Glenda Green is an abstract artist working in acrylics and mixed media, primarily on wood panels. She is a child of the 1960s, and her work is influenced by the music, fashion and symbolism of that era. Her work has been included in several exhibitions and collections including Art Palm Beach, Paul Fisher Gallery, Lighthouse ArtCenter, Cornell Art Museum, as well as the Coral Springs Museum of Art permanent collection and the Miller Gallery in Cincinnati.
“The paintings in this exhibit are a representation of how my life has been reshaped over the past year,” says Green. “All were inspired by everyday shapes that are a reflection of how I interpret the world. I hope that the energy I put into these paintings will convey feelings of hope, discovery and rebirth.”
A portion of the sales from this exhibition will be donated to help with the devastation of the wildfires in Australia—a passionate cause for Green and her daughter Lily.
