Tequesta, Fla. – Lighthouse ArtCenter (LAC) welcomes visitors to experience a wide variety of media and cultures through a collection of visual art that celebrates artists from near and far. Art Across Cultures features two concurrent exhibitions: Women in the Visual Arts and Art by Aboriginal People. The exhibitions are in person with art available for purchase. Admission is free to members and $5 for non-members. For more information, visit lighthousearts.org.
Women in the Visual Arts (WITVA) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support professional women artists in South Florida. The organization includes over 200 artists and art lovers. The juried Women in the Visual Arts exhibition features a variety of media created by select WITVA members. The art styles range from abstract to naturalistic and include paintings, photography, jewelry and other mixed media. Much of the artists’ work is inspired by the natural beauty of South Florida and includes landscapes, ocean scenes, sea turtles and whimsical mermaids.
Art by Aboriginal People features a private collection of paintings and wood carvings primarily made by prominent female Aboriginal artists from the central desert region of the Northern Territory of Australia. The Aboriginal paintings use a dot technique that creates a 3-D effect and a sense of movement and rhythm. The dot paintings tell stories with hidden symbols that have a deeper meaning about Aboriginal life. The back of the paintings reveals the artists’ location and the meaning behind the painting. The art has been ethically sourced and certified.
“Compare the dreamscapes of the Women in the Visual Arts to those of the Aboriginal artists and you’ll feel the grandeur of our differences and our similarities,” says Curator Janeen Mason. “It will make for a day you won’t soon forget.”
