Our galleries, located in the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building at 601 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth Beach, are free and open to the public Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
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.
Directly south of the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building is the Cultural Council’s Project Space, which will feature new sculpture by Lucy Keshavarz (through May 2019) and offers a view of the giant Martin Luther King, Jr. mural by Brazilian artist, Eduardo Kobra.

Jennifer Love Gironda
July 27 through August 31
Since 2012, Jennifer Love Gironda created one piece, every day, within a monthly theme chosen based on a particular interest or event. She establish the Golden Gals theme in 2016 to celebrate one of her favorite artists, Gustav Klimt. Drawn to his use of gold and pattern combined with portraiture, Gironda revisited this body of work, trading in her watercolor paint for bolder acrylic and spray paint, even gold leaf.
She earned her B.F.A. and M.A. Ed. in Art Education from East Carolina University with a focus on textiles and has lived in South Florida since 2009. She’s also a National Board Certified Teacher and member of local and state art organizations. In 2017, Gironda was selected to attend Hermitage Artist Retreat as a STAR recipient. She currently teaches at Lake Worth High School, working with 3D-1, 2D/3D Advanced Placement and Portfolio students. Since 2012, she has created over 2,700 pieces of “daily” art and has shown in various solo and group shows in Florida and North Carolina.
