Fun at the beach by Ann Schwartz.
The Artists of Palm Beach County exhibit “Florida Water Views” will be on display at the Lake Park Library, 529 Park Ave., from June 4 to July 31 in conjunction with the library’s Summer Reading Program, “Oceans of Possibilities,” which runs June 6 through July 30.
“Art often inspires people,” said Maxine Schreiber, the exhibition marketing manager of the Artists of Palm Beach County. “The library is hoping to encourage people to read about the ocean and Florida’s waterways, and I think the exhibit will do just that.”
An opening reception for the community is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday, June 11, for both “Florida Water Views” and the summer program.
The “Florida Water Views” exhibition represents the Artists of Palm Beach County’s mission to “share, inspire and promote creativity in the arts through education, exhibitions and outreach to our community.”
The 12 members of Artists of Palm Beach County will display photographs, paintings and collages that exemplify the beauty of Florida’s ocean and other waterways. The artists are Saul Cohen, Lupe Lawrence, Noelle McCarthy, Susan Oakes, Monica Postell, Janet Schreiber, Maxine Schreiber, Ann Schwartz, Bonnie Summer, Lorrie Williamson, Tamar Wolfson and Mary Jane Zapp.
The library’s summer program includes a documentary film about Jacques Cousteau and presentations titled “Ocean Health: Human Health by Harbor Branch Florida Atlantic University.”
In addition, a kids summer reading program will include craft activities and a presentation on sea turtle nesting season by the Loggerhead Marinelife Center.
