The 13th ArtPalmBeach, a modern and contemporary art fair continues through January 19 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. The fair offers collectors and art enthusiasts a selection of more than 75 international dealers representing both 20th and 21st century artworks by more than 1,500 artists.
Included in the mix are artists from Palm Beach County.
Three of West Palm Beach resident Cheryl Maeder’s works are exhibited at Galerie Mark Hachem, Paris, in booth #310.
“My latest work, “Dreamscapes: Far & Away” series was photographed along the coasts of Santa Monica and Venice beaches in California in August, 2009,” Maeder said. “I wanted to put into perspective, the power and infinite expanse of the sand, sea and sky and the part we humans play in this story.”
“Flight of Fantasy,” by Yvonne Parker of West Palm Beach, is on exhibit at International Sculpture Institute’s booth #607. This piece is Parker’s latest and most challenging sculpture in her “Fragmented Beauty” series.
“The work is a celebration of a figurative menagerie filled with infinite possibilities of dialogue, interaction and juxtaposition,” she said. “I invite my viewers to take flight into a phenomenal voyage of fantasy and beauty filled with vibrant orange and red colors, magnificent flora and whimsical characters.”
Fair hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Entrance fee is $15 for one-day admission and $20 for multi-day admission. A discounted student rate is offered, and children under 12 are free. The lecture series led by museum curators and experts is open to the public. The Palm Beach Convention Center is at 650 Okeechobee Boulevard, West Palm Beach.
