Lake Worth beach was a tourist MECcA this past Saturday. Plein air Palm Beach and the Palm Beach Sketchers converged on Lake Ave. Admired by visitors and locals, seen carrying their morning coffee. going from artist to sketcher along our avenue.
We are known for having a fair share of Art Deco buildings, which was the focus of this day. Not just that but Lake Worth also has over one thousand charming quaint cottages that can easily be seen via a self guided tour on the one way streets that comprise the 2 mile area.
Sketchers sat at Una’s Bakery looking north across at the pastel shops on the avenue. The artists came from Hollywood, st. Augustine, Singer Island, Boynton Beach. Etc. Etc. 38 had already RSVP when the invitation went out,
A great gathering of art lovers. Met up w friends not seen for two years. I moved here for the Artistic vibe. First heard about it when the CRA held a charrette and 72 artists from around S Florida attended the presentation.
And there is more off the main area there where one can find charming Art Deco Homes
