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.

An exhibition of artwork by the faculty of the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts
May 25 through August 18
Member Preview: Thursday, May 24, 5:30-7:30 p.m. | Event Photos »
As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, it’s fitting to mount an exhibition celebrating the artist faculty of the school named after our founder, Alexander W. Dreyfoos. In 1997, Dreyfoos made the largest private contribution ever made to a public school in Florida when he pledged $1 million to support Palm Beach County School of the Arts, which was subsequently renamed in his honor. This exhibition honors each artist’s commitment to the students who continue to thrive under their guidance.
