You’re Invited: April General Meeting
On Monday April 14, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. Artists of Palm Beach County (APBC) member Betty Wilson will host the General Meeting of APBC at the Artisans on the Ave Gallery located at 630 Lake Avenue in historic downtown Lake Worth. Artisans – a division of the Craft Gallery – opened in January.
In 1981, Betty Wilson started The Craft Gallery on Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. Since then the glass fusion artist and art community organizer has been creating gallery and studio spaces that are havens for local artists. Linda Manganaro, an accomplished mixed media artist, has joined Betty in opening this new gallery in Lake Worth. They have filled the space with beautiful and interesting 2 and 3-dimensional artworks by established and emerging local artists.
