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.

RaWk – The Art of Jason Newsted

December 1 through February 3
Member’s Preview: Thursday, November 30 | RSVP online »

As Grammy Award winning artist Jason Newsted says, “I shifted from crazy colorful music to crazy colorful pictures.” Beginning to make visual artseriously in 2004, Newsted manipulates canvases and upcycles ordinary materials. He imagines landscapes and figures that come to light froman unlimited color palate. His figures seem otherworldly and evoke a sense of frenetic emotion and in some of his work he has been influenced by Outsider Art. Newsted also works with words and layers. Using both hands, he scrawls out names or phrases and then layers paint to cleverly disguise them from the viewer. At times he twists and turns the canvas repeatedly, painting and painting, until he obtains his desired effect. Heavily influenced later by the great masters of modern art, Newsted has found his niche and an expressionistic awareness of contemporary art. Nick Korniloff curated this exhibition.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Jason Newsted’s artwork during the exhibition will be donated to the Cultural Council, The Perry J. Cohen Foundation and Little Kids Rock.

Dianne Bernstein - The Good Wife

Dianne Bernstein

December 9, 2017 through January 6, 2018

Although there has been a tradition of painters in her family, Dianne Bernstein truly began painting ten years ago during a trip to Italy. Her earliest attempts began at drawing classes in Pennsylvania and Florida which prepared her for the lush landscapes of the Tuscan countryside. Bernstein eventually moved away from still life and landscape to her “painted women.” She attempts to capture the “moods and mystery of women” in an expressionistic fashion on canvas. Bernstein has exhibited nationally and is collected by patrons across the country. thewomansart.com
