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.

Selections From the Armory Art Center
August 26 through October 29
Member’s Preview and Annual Meeting: Thursday, August 25, 5:30-7:30 p.m. | See Event Photos
This exhibition features new or unseen work by 41 talented artists that are current faculty at the Armory Art Center.
After a group of inspired citizens saved the historic, art deco Armory building in West Palm Beach’s Flamingo Park neighborhood, the Cultural Council assisted in the founding of the Armory Art Center, which opened to the public in 1986. The Armory Art Center’s mission is to inspire the creation and experience of art.
The Armory provides art classes for students of all ages, exhibitions, art salons, lectures, youth art camps, outreach and special events. Nearly 100 courses held in 12 state-of-the-art studios are offered each year including ceramics, digital arts, drawing, glass fusing, jewelry, painting, printmaking, fibers, sculpture. In addition, several exhibitions are hosted annually in four galleries. armoryart.org
