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.

The City I Live In 21

Something Out of Nothing

March 25 through May 21
Member’s Preview: Thursday, March 24, 5:30-7:30 p.m. | View Event Photos

Artists are constantly challenged to create something new or innovative, a piece that is provocative or simply representational, a work that moves the viewer, explores ideas, expresses beliefs, confronts a movement. “Something Out of Nothing” illustrates the diversity of 15 artists in Palm Beach County who have embraced these very concepts. Each artist in this exhibition was challenged to create a work specifically for this show or to display work that has recently been created and not yet exhibited. This exhibition is a testament to the creative process and the tremendous talent that is found within Palm Beach County.

Kerry Eriksen - Rocky Shore Boynton Beach 2015

Kerry Eriksen

April 2 through 30

Primarily a self-taught artist, Kerry Eriksen began seriously developing her art in 1975. She believes the practice of plein air painting is essential to being a great artist. Eriksen was introduced to plein air painting a decade ago with master artist Rick Howell of Mogote, Colorado. There she spent many hours in the San Juan mountains pursuing the art of painting out of doors. Eriksen considers herself to be a contemporary impressionist painter and spends many hours painting the natural beauty of the Florida Everglades as well as the southeastern coastal regions of Florida.

Genie Fritchey - Dancing in Camelot 2016

Genie Fritchey

April 2 through 30

For Genie Fritchey, experience is the most important part of the artistic process. Fritchey finds that her creative experience is a natural response established over decades of working with paint on canvas in combination with her studies under Ted Vassar and Richard Schneider. Often working organically, she creates canvases that lend to an abstract expressionistic familiarity. The relation of the work to the viewer is as important to the process as the two together create the full sensory experience. Fritchey has exhibited throughout South Florida and is represented by various galleries nationally.
