CALLING ALL ARTISTS  to show your work in our gallery!

Our gallery is owned and operated by the Lake Worth Art League, the oldest non-profit art organization in Palm Beach County, founded in 1941. The league is comprised of very talented artists from all disciplines. More good news… it is very inexpensive to join and show. First, become a member. You then have the opportunity to show up to 5 pieces of work in each one of our 8 judged “season” shows. Each show is judged by a qualified judge that is not affiliated with the league. The league offers cash prizes and ribbons for first, second, third, and honorable mention award winners. Low entry fees for each piece. Summer exhibitions continue with reduced prices for entry as these shows are not judged. The league retains 20% of all sales. That percentage along with membership, entry fees and our volunteers, helps keep the gallery open and your work visible to the public. A reception with light refreshment is held for each show. All shows are advertised. Membership also offers the opportunity to sell your small works/prints, and other original creations in our Boutique. Please go to lwartleague.org to find out more!

 

 

 

The Lake Worth Art League, Inc. was founded in 1941, and is a 501C(3) nonprofit, educational organization established to further the studies of the arts and their development and to enhance the cultural life of its Members, the City of Lake Worth, and its neighboring communities.

RICKIE LEITER

Rickie Leiter has always been fascinated by the creative process.   A former art consultant in her native Massachusetts, her instinct to connect with creatives in her new home led her to found The Rickie Report in 2011.  While its focus is the visual art scene in Southeast Florida, she sees personal inspiration in nature, as well as the performing arts.  

Rickie’s mission is to help emerging artists achieve meaningful careers and to guide professional artists in finding their niches.  With a world-wide readership, The Rickie Report brings visual artists and art lovers/art patrons together.  For her, these relationships are the bonds that create a well-educated and well-rounded community.

Rickie’s own creative process over the years has included fiber art, one-of-a-kind wearable art necklaces, and mosaics.  In addition to having earned an MSW, Rickie has served as a long-time volunteer in national and international non-profits, providing her with a solid on-the-ground education for marketing, communication and leadership training.  She and her husband, Jeff, publish The Rickie Report while enjoying the cultural bounties around them.    Contact Rickie@TheRickieReport.com

Young Artists:  Young Artists will receive Certificates of Participation in the Contest. School educators entering work by their class (individual or collaborative group pieces) will be offered a symbolic adoption of an ape residing at the Center for Great Apes.

Plus entrants will have the satisfaction of knowing that 100 percent of their entry donation of $35 for two pieces of art ($5 per single piece for Young Artists) is going directly to support the wonderful work of the Center for Great Apes.  Endangered: Art4Apes and the Center for Great Apes are tremendously grateful to all artists who support the contest.

The ENDANGERED Fine Art & Photography Contest and Exhibition are a lot of fun.  We encourage you to be a part of this amazing opportunity and not only use your talent to compete in a contest and reach a new audience but also play a role in preserving wildlife and the environment and directly support an extremely worthwhile non-profit organization.

Proceeds

All proceeds from the contest and exhibition support the Center for Great Apes, a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit organization. The Center for Great Apes’ mission is to provide a permanent sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees who have been rescued or retired from the entertainment industry, from research, or who are no longer wanted as pets. The Center provides care with dignity in a safe, healthy, and enriching environment for great apes in need of lifetime care. Please visit their website to learn more http://www.CenterForGreatApes.org.      

ALL donations, including contest entry fees, go directly to support the Center. We fund our events either through commercial sponsorship or through our own donations.

The Center for Great Apes is solely the beneficiary of the funds from this Contest; it has no role in the organization or management of this contest. The Center for Great Apes cannot be held responsible for any issue relating to this Contest.
