As your out and about this evening make the Cultural Council one of your stops. They have multiple exhibitions worth your time. The annual showcase of interiors matched with art, however, no catalogue you’re on your own. the first on the left is so busy you can’t wrap your head around it and what appears Edward Hopper paintings but not. As you go further into the interior, you can calm down and enjoy the serenity of less is more. This is in the main gallery. Now for the piece de resistance two different exhibitions with far to little mention.
As you enter go to the right and along that wall is a wonderful small collection of Florida Art. On loan from the private collection of Phil Materio who’s collection could have taken up the main salon, he has upwards 500 works carefully chosen.
He continues collecting as only a few months ago I witnessed the purchase of a highly collectible Lake Worth Artist. The above painting not described, could well have depicted a scene on Worth Avenue. Dreisbach originally from Pa. was a member of several South Florida art guilds.
The other exhibition in the sponsored JPMorgan Chase Foundation space is Annette Rawlings. Now a Lake Worth Artist whose work has taken on bolder colours. A modern take on her formal beginnings of using rabbit skin glue and oils, she now is using acrylics gouache and ceramic media. She is still true to her minimalistic art form. You can see from this photo what the middle image is. On the postcard, the colors were off and out of context, I thought it was an Ice Cream Cone. Have for many years admired Annette’s work and she is also an author, plus has a line of jewelry. She has exhibited from Woodstock, all the way to the City of Lights. There is something to please just about everyone in this months show at the Cultural Council. Well worth the trip and always support your local artist. Purchase something.
