LAKE WORTH BEACH, FL —

A unique chance to take a behind-the-scenes peek into the world of professional art in The Palm Beaches is almost here with Palm Beach County Open Studios.

Now in its second year, the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County’s annual free, public event will offer the opportunity to visit more than 90 Palm Beach County-based creative professionals at their studios or workplaces. The weekend-long event will take place May 18 and 19 from noon to 5 p.m. at studios across the county.

“Our inaugural Palm Beach County Open Studios event was so popular last year that we’ve expanded it from one day to a full weekend, and we have more artists signed up than ever before,” said Jessica Ransom, director of artist services for the Cultural Council. “This free event is a unique opportunity to discover artists who live and work in your own neighborhood and beyond. It’s a chance to ask them questions about their processes and to see them making their work.”

Visitors will be able to interact with artists and observe a wide range of demonstrations in painting, blowing glass, photography, jewelry making, sculpture, printmaking, woodworking, fiber arts, mixed media work and more.

The Cultural Council serves creative professionals throughout Palm Beach County through funding opportunities, artist calls, a robust artists’ directory, professional development opportunities and more. This event is an opportunity to support and learn about the work of professional visual artists, said Dave Lawrence, the Cultural Council’s president and CEO.

“Palm Beach County Open Studios is a chance to celebrate our county’s incredible creative professionals,” he said. “I’d like to encourage everyone to visit our website to download the artist lineup and the digital map, where visitors can start saving the studios they want to see and planning their days. It’s a wonderful event and not to be missed.”

Palm Beach County Open Studios 2024 is sponsored by PureHoney magazine, WLRN Public Media and Palm Beach Media Group.
