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!

Norton Museum

 

On this cultural day trip, participants will have the opportunity to visit the renowned Norton Museum in West Palm Beach. The museum itself was founded in 1941, by Ralph Hubbard Norton and his wife Elizabeth. The couple had a taste for the fine arts and spent many years building a personal collection of paintings and sculptures. Splitting their time between Chicago and West Palm Beach, the couple decided to move to South Florida permanently and share their private collection with the public.

“The Poplars at Saint-Rémy” by Vincent Van Gogh

 

 

 

When Norton moved down here, he commissioned the distinguished firm of Wyeth & King to design the museum and the Art Deco/ Neo-Classic building opened their doors to the public on February 8, 1941. Today, their collection consists of more than 7,000+ works of art in the following areas: European, American, Chinese, Contemporary, and Photography.
