Members have an opportunity to show their art in other spaces as well as the gallery. Community Centers, Restaurants, and Banks have showcased our artists.
Our outdoor show takes place in the gallery parking area during the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival. Other offsite venues may be planned.
The Lake Worth Art League offers classes, and workshops to both members and non-members (fees slightly higher).
If you would like to teach a class, let us know.
If you like to paint or create with others and maybe get a few tips, advice, or just some conversation join your fellow artists for Open Studio Thursdays! We try to offer live model opportunities on some Open Studio days as well. Free for members.
Attend the receptions to meet other members and accept your invitation when members get together and enjoy pot lunches or dinners, or group outings to venues like museums or other galleries, or a plein air date.
Did you win an award? Land a solo show? Let us know if you have art related news about yourself, and we'll spread the word in our newsletter.
We also offer Featured Artist opportunities, 4 walls of your art displayed in the alcove of the main gallery during one of our regular shows. Our Special Exhibition room in the gallery is available for your solo show when space permits. You may also schedule your own additional reception.
