Libby Volgyes - Marco Barbisotti

Libby Volgyes
Faces of Food

November 22 through January 18

“Faces of Food” is a photographic exploration of the men and women that create, cook, and prepare food in South Florida. Featuring striking, evocative and moody imagery of chefs, bartenders, brewers, farmers, and pastry artists, the work seeks to document and highlight the passion and personalities behind the local food landscape.

Libby Volgyes is an award-winning food and beverage photographer based in West Palm Beach. She previously worked as a photojournalist for The Palm Beach Post and now operates Libby Vision, a food photography studio. In the spring of 2019, Libby’s project “Faces of Food” was selected to exhibit at the Food Photo Festival in Vejle, Denmark.

Lynn Amsterdam - Around the Bend

Lynn Amsterdam

December 21 through January 18

Lynn Amsterdam is an abstract painter and photographer based in Delray Beach. She enjoyed a successful 32-year career with the State of New Jersey and as a professional photographer. After sustaining injuries from a debilitating accident in 2009 she discovered the healing power of art through her paintbrush. “I approach my painting like I approach a relationship, unknowing where it is going, excited about the possibilities, building upon it, layer by layer, adding the colors of life and its texture until the momentary period of ugly becomes beautiful,” says Amsterdam.

Amsterdam’s work has been exhibited in several galleries across the country, as well as in private collections. She is a member of the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County, Women in the Visual Arts (WITVA) and the Delray Art League.
