Artfull evening in Lake Worth

Activities are stacking up here in our quirky paradise.  Bonfire  cancelled,  saw an influx of people enjoying the free galleries receptions  last night.  The opening of our newest artist space is now on 16 s J street.  That area is becoming quite a hub of activities.  The Bohemian Coffee house known as Common Ground, the recently opened Book Cellar just across the way and now the Art Studio Cafe had it’s GRAND OPENING.  Artist in residence Maria Paz received  patrons and friends baring gifts, flowers, and all their well wishes.   

couldn’t resist this photo

   Mary Lindsey gave the blessing to the new establishment and a poet read his poem of  Janus the roman God of new beginnings. The Champagne toast made it official.                                       On to the next art space the Cultural Council  had two exhibitions and the crowd flowed into the street. One show is extreme modern abstract came with it’s own band and then the gem of a small show well named for it’s rare beauty RUBY as were the works of art, detail oriented.  You might want to spend time enjoying  the quality of these exquisite small works.  A saying of mine “big does not make it better“.    A quick hello to LWAL and the new exhibit with special guest artist Diane Hutchinson and ribbons for 1st 2nd and 3rd in this juried show.

 This was the Cultural Council bldg. once upon a time,  with  lit up marquee.

   Then back around to Artisan on the Ave.  did not have a reception but is always busy.  December was a knock out month according to Director Betty,  they made $9,000 in sales, best year yet.  So happy for all the artists represented there.  Back to the Common Ground Coffee where I inadvertently left my IPad to charge.  The duo singing were performing to a full house.  All this on a Friday night in Lake Worth Florida.

MUST SEE  !  Tonight OPENING  about 20 minutes from downtown Lake Worth is the Box Gallery  811 Belvedere. The reception for  Artist Martzia and her oil and gold leaf, 12 foot frieze.   It is a academic work of Homer’s Ulysses.  Plays into the Art Palm Beach schedule.  Roland has a prize that is worthy of a large institution.
