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.

Nature Preserved

Opening Reception: Thursday, November 12, 5:30-7:30 p.m. | Event Photos

As we face climate changes, documenting the natural beauty around us becomes even more important. Artworks by artists living or working in Palm Beach County have captured the wonders of the earth in multiple mediums: from photography to sculpture, plein air painting to site-specific installations and video to watercolor. Artists utilize organic objects, synthetic materials and digital media in turn “preserving” the essence of nature in this exhibition. The Environmental Resources Management of Palm Beach County and the Viridis Collective will be offering lectures on our county and the artistic process, respectively.

Mimie Langlois - Love, acrylic on canvas, 60x48

Mimie Langlois

November 14 through December 12

Mimie Langlois’ fascination with the Far East began early in childhood. Born in Quebec, she is the second of ten children. Her early travels brought her to deepen her understanding of Eastern culture by visiting Japan and China. She studied Zen and the martial arts and eventually went on to earn her black belt in karate. Her compositions are created with a single brush stroke with white paint on a rich black background lending themselves to a Zen-like state. Since the mid-sixties, Mimie Langlois has taken part in hundreds of exhibitions in North-America and Europe. Her works grace numerous public and private collections.

Jean Goddeau - Nightscape, 2013

Jean Goddeau

November 14 through December 12

Jean Goddeau employs the ancient art form batik to create her works. While the Javanese technique typically utilizes cloth, wax and pigment to create a patterned effect, Goddeau uses rice paper that appears delicate but is in fact very strong. In her West Palm Beach studio she layers watercolors and paraffin onto the paper to build up color and creates abstract fields of color and organic tableaus. She is inspired by nature and continues to create meditative studies of the world around her.

Neil Cohen - Serenity

Passions Collide
The Photography of Neil Cohen

November 14 through December 12

When most people think of a dancer, they imagine beauty, elegance, grace and poise. They envision a rehearsal room, the stage, the lights, the costumes or a theatre. Neil Cohen envisions art and inspiration. His goal is to capture the elegance of dancers and open minds to the rawness of a location. What transpired from the beginning of this photographic journey far surpassed what he originally envisioned. Two art forms collided and true beauty began to happen. Neil Cohen has been photographing dancers for 15 years. Currently he is a staff photographer for World of Dance Magazine and Visionaries of Dance.
