This winter the Lighthouse Center for the Arts in Tequesta, located at 373 Tequesta Drive, is presenting three out of the ordinary exhibitions. Contempo, which opened on January 7th and runs through February 6, 2010, is a juried contemporary exhibit of thirty- five local artists, among them Elle Schorr, Barry Seidman, and Francene Levinson previously profiled in Examiner articles.
Nelson Hallonquist of the Gavlak Gallery in Palm Beach who juried the exhibit says of their unusual works: “As we enter the second decade of the 21st century and further progress towards the closest example of a global society we have seen thus far, it is no wonder that our own backyard is teeming with artists using talent, voices and ideas in a most impressive manner… I am sure you will be as excited to view Contempo as I have been to jury it.”
The Art of Film, an exhibition featuring the work of Contemporary artists Irwin Berman, Nancy Cervenka and Deanna Krueger is equally as interesting. The three artists take film out of its original purpose and use it to create intricate artworks from sculpture to wall hangings. The exhibit began on January 11th and will be on view until February 11, 2010.
With a serious underlying cause in mind, BraVo is perhaps the most fun of the three exhibits. Created by local artists in the fight against breast cancer, the amazing bras are fabulous creations. Some of them are beautiful, many are humorous, and when viewed all together make a fantastic exhibit. The exhibition is in honor of Evelyn Bates, a longtime employee of the Lighthouse Center who is a breast cancer survivor, and a number of the bras have been dedicated to other loved ones. The exhibit began on January 7th and runs through February 11th when The “Pink” Cocktail Party and ArtBra Auction will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Admission to the Lighthouse is free for members and $5 for visitors 12 years old and above. For information, call the Museum at 746-3101 or the School at 748-3787, and please take a look at the slideshow below with works from all three exhibits.
