Jump into this show if you are En Plein Air, conservationists, or activists who want to save this planet. We have invited Everglades artists to join us, as they use their works to save the Everglades. Once again, this title, as all of our titles, are totally up to your interpretation.
May 12- May 24 :
May 12- May 24 : “Derby Days”: This is our show with a “Horse” theme, re-titled. We have a number of equestrian enthusiasts who have been working in our studio, visiting our gallery and asking for works that involve horses. The show is being held earlier this year to reach the equestrian community before they leave the area for the summer.
May 26-June 7:
“Birds of a Feather”
May 26-June 7 “Birds of a Feather” – This show is opened to photographers, painters, sculptors, potters, jewelers and all fine artists who love our feathered friends. Again, if this does not evoke “bird” in you, and you can interpret this in any other way, you works are welcome
June 23-July 5

Artwork by Jennifer Love Gironda
June 23-July5 “Hook Line and Sinker”– We go from the air and tree tops, to the deep blue sea with this show. Nautical themes are what we anticipate, with lots and lots of fish and sea creatures. Once again, if this does not evoke “fish” in you, you can interpret this in any other way.
July 7- July 19:
“Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish”
Shoe Fetish Gallery View
July 7- July 19: “Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish” This proved to be last year’s favorite show among our patrons who purchased more works than in any other show of the year . We like adding some levity to the hot summer by introducing the foot theme into our mix. Let’s get some pictures of these works into the gallery a few weeks early so we can get some more TV coverage on this. We want to bring the shoe loving crowds into the gallery to purchase your works. Last year some retired shoe manufacturers came into the gallery to buy.
August 4-August 16:
Artwork by Bea Doone-Merena
August 4-August 16: “Peanuts Rising” formerly known as “The Male Form” We are repeating this successful special request exhibition. As in the past, this special show came from artists who felt slighted by the creations and shows that mostly feature the female form. They wanted equal time We welcome your interpretations.
August 18 to August 30
” Bread and Roses”
????? Your Interpretation ?????
August 18 to August 30- ” Bread and Roses” in honor of Women’s Equality Day. The title, “Bread and Roses”, came from the 1912 Laurence Mill strike where women fought for their rights, asking for raises for bread, but for roses in their lives as well. This exhibition honors women, their contribution to the world and to art. Just being a woman in the arts (with or without a message) brings honor to the exhibit.

“The Petting Zoo”

October 6 – October 18: “The Petting Zoo” formerly know at the Cat-O-Strophic Event: This wildly popular was all about cats, and now, all other animals.

October 20-November 1
Gallery View With Artist Yury Lobo
October 20-November 1: “Halloween, Freaky” replaces the Annual “Day(s) of the Dead” Lake Worth is now doing “Day of the Dead,” so we thought we would encompass a wider range of the Halloween Scene this year.
