Celebrate Americana!

The 4th of July weekend is nearly upon us! Here's a bit of advice...spend your weekend celebrating our nation's independence in LAKE WORTH! This weekend promises to be a fantastic, fun-filled few days for you, your family and friends. Lake Worth is throwing a good, old-fashioned party including music, a pie eating contest, pig kissing (you heard me...) and so much more Downtown Lake Worth will be exploding with activity during the entire Fourth of July Weekend. On July 3rd, the Downtown Cultural Alliance Merchant Association will be taking over the Lake Avenue sidewalks and side streets “J”, “K”, “L” and “M” for a full day of old fashioned family fun. Restaurants and Merchants are offering patriotic sidewalk sales all day. The festivities will take place Sunday from 12:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

Restaurants on Lake and Lucerne will move their grills to the sidewalk, roasting ears of corn and barbequing hotdogs, hamburgers, chicken and other holiday treats. Local food vendors will also line the streets with Italian-ice, ice cream, boiled peanuts, baked goods and watermelon.

And did I mention the Beach Blanket Bingo??? Wear a swimsuit July 3rd and get free raffle tickets for some great prizes!

So, start your weekend Friday night with a visit to the Gallery. We're featuring folk-art themed works by Gallery artists. All hand-made, all AMERICAN. Have a glass of wine and visit with these talented local artists. See you at 6:00!!

Hey Dad, Come See the New Gals!

June 3 was for the New Guys, and this Friday, June 17th is for the New Gals! Come meet our new Gallery members Kathleen Kirschner, Mary Catello, Teri Salomoni, Madeline Gallo and Lee Mortensen. Kathleen, Mary and Teri all work with wood and fiber, creating amazing vessels and 3-dimensional sculptures. Madeline is a sculptor and potter, and Lee works with stained glass and creates intricate mosaics. All will be on hand to meet you and show you their latest creations.

This Friday will also be a great opportunity to find the perfect Father's Day gift! Believe us when we say that Dad doesn't need another tie this Father's Day (seriously). Instead, give him the gift of original art. We have sports related sculptures from basketball to sumo wrestling, hand made coffee mugs, glass platters, and hand forged men's jewelry in bronze and copper. Each piece unique and original, just like DAD!

So, stop by for a glass of wine and meet our wonderful new artists. We'll help you choose the perfect gift for Dad, or for yourself! See you at 6:00!
