Betty Wilson’s Little Studio That Could…And Does Make Great Art! The Craft Gallery Offers Classes, Workshops, Studio Space, Party Rentals

In a city full of polished galleries filled with magnificent art, there is a little local working art studio and gallery in West Palm Beach that knocks it out of the park! The Craft Gallery, owned by prominent West Palm Beach artist Betty Wilson, is a jewel tucked away in a small slice of Dixie Highway. Betty’s gallery and studio offers artists the perfect place to hone their craft, display their creations and share their knowledge. Art lovers can experience making art or just browsing for thoughtful and thought-provoking works of art by local artists. As current President of The Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches, Betty’s gallery includes works of art from many League members. Plus, her own creativity can be seen in her artwork on display – ceramics, fused glass creations and encaustic wax pieces.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks!

If you are considering displaying your artwork in a gallery, The Craft Gallery is a great place to be.

Betty is regularly showcasing new and seasoned artists at exhibitions and receptions held throughout the year, all open to the public. She also promotes the artists on social media, the gallery website, in a monthly e-newsletter and via local media outlets.





The Craft Gallery also offers studio space for rent. Artists can rent by the hour, day, week or up to a year. There are membership opportunities with many perks for those needing space and materials on an ongoing basis.
