Art Synergy, a non-profit organization, was fortunate to have caught the eye of the Lesters at Next Level Art Fairs and through their auspices the organization has received a booth at the ArtPalmBeach for the past four years, with 2018 being the fifth Art Synergy.



Art Synergy has grown considerably since its inception and our volunteer staff and support has grown along with it. The organization, run by Rolando Chang Barrero and Ilene Gruber Adams, artists and advocates, holds several meetings yearly, open to the public, where we request help from the community to work with us in everything from planning, to finance hanging the shows. We look forward to another successful year and cannot thank the Lesters enough for the support they have shown us.

Art Synergy is the unique countywide movement of artists, business and civic leaders committed to unifying and promoting the diverse culture of Palm Beach County’s and South Florida’s vibrant arts community. Our goal is to broaden the education and culture of our children through the arts via joint parent/child experiences.
