‘Southern Babes’ exhibit to feature artwork from women
A new exhibit featuring the artwork of four local women artists opens today at the art gallery at Palm Beach State College’s Lake Worth campus.
Titled “Southern Babes,” the exhibit runs through April 24 and celebrates Women’s History Month. An opening reception will be held in the gallery from 5 to 7 p.m. April 5. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
“Woman artists often encounter challenges in having their artwork featured in exhibitions and galleries,” said Adjunct Instructor Leslie Albert. “In honor of Women’s History month, this special exhibit features the artwork of accomplished women artists in the South Florida area who create art with a personal range of aesthetic viewpoints, media and approaches.”
The artists are Jennifer Basile, Sandy Lerman, Yomarie Silva-O’Neal and Nancy Spielman.
Basile lives and works in Miami. Focusing on drawing, painting and printmaking, she seeks to investigate what ‘springs from mother Earth’ and loves to create artworks that evoke the essence of a place. Lerman paints full time in her studio in Lake Worth. Since her mother gave her a paint set at 10 years old, she has continued to paint the play of light and color on objects and the resulting interactions. Silva-O’Neal is a sculptor who also lives and works in Miami. Her work reveals her obsession with intricacy and the complexity of nature. Spielman lives and works in Delray Beach. Her oil paintings celebrate the comfort, joy and happiness of life.
The exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The art gallery is located on the first floor in the Humanities Building. For more information, please call 561-868-3270 or email Albert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
