ART SALONS offer stimulating conversations with other artists in the community. As a springboard to each of our explorations, professional artists from South Florida are invited to present their work, talk about what influenced them, and examine the work of influential artists showing in museums and galleries. Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art. They’re also an opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, of professional development and the sharing of useful resources.  Salons are facilitated by Elle Schorr.

The Florida Highwaymen Are Coming To Lighthouse ArtCenter For Art Exhibit, Sale And Talks

The Lighthouse ArtCenter invites you to an Art Show, Sale and Artists Talk to benefit Martin County Special Needs Training and Lighthouse ArtCenter.  Twenty-six of the original Florida Highwaymen painters were inducted into the Florida Artist Hall of Fame in 2004, Florida’s highest cultural honor. Their careers began in the 1950s, before the Civil Rights Movement gained ground. This group of mostly self-taught African-American artists dared to pull themselves out of poverty by painting iconic Florida landscapes and selling their work door to door to Doctors’ offices, beauty salons, and from their cars in parking lots.  Lighthouse ArtCenter presents two of the Hall of Fame Original Highwaymen, Issac Knight, Roy McLendon, Sr. and Johnny Stovall Highwayman 27, along with Second Generation Artists, A.J. Brown, Roy McLendon, Jr., Ray McLendon.  Selected paintings from Johnny Daniels and John Maynor, both deceased, will also be available.  The Rickie Report shares the details about purchasing tickets.  The Florida Highwaymen are Coming April 1st and 2nd!
