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.
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.

Taking a simple 10 inch by 10 inch surface, artists were asked to create work in any medium, on any subject, and bound only to the limitations of size. This open call to all residents of Palm Beach County included grade-school students, senior citizens and professional artists. Judging was based on overall quality of the work with six cash prizes given to winners. Our special guest juror was Bruce Helander, a full time artist and critic in Palm Beach County.

Heads and hands are the focus of Dora Frost’s work entitled “Men of the Twentieth Century”. Each noted figure of literary, artistic or business reputation is depicted with just simple anatomy levitating in pen and ink on paper. Frost features these important men from a past era who were defined by their ideals, commitments and values as a nod to a sense of decency and honor. Frost studied at the Parsons School of Design in New York and has exhibited extensively along the East Coast. She currently shares her time and studio between Southampton, New York and West Palm Beach, Florida.

The founder of Notism and Earth Art Paintings, Ron Burkhardt’s current Letterscape paintings combine a unique abstract alphabet of precise word forms with hidden meanings and bold, geometric colors. His early influences were Basquiat, Pollack, Twombly and Rothko for their graphic sensibilities and rich color palettes. Burkhardt graduated from Western Michigan University and studied at the Art Students League of New York as well as the National Academy of Fine Art in New York. This internationally exhibited artist spends his time between the Hamptons and West Palm Beach and his work is held in collections worldwide.
