Lee Ann Lester, Organizer of ArtPalmBeach Contemporary Art Fair, announced today the launch of the first “Art Synergy” Art Week during the upcoming ArtPalmBeach art fair.
ART SYNERGY is a countywide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community”Craig McInnis, West Palm Beach Art District Coordinator. Initiated by Lee Ann Lester, Fair Organizer and local gallery owners Rolando Barrero, Craig McInnis, and Freddy Hennevelt; “Art Synergy” is a coordinated five day event with over 60 galleries, studios, non-profit art exhibition institutions and museums in six art districts throughout Palm Beach County during the five day fair, Jan. 23-28th.
Rolando Barrero, Director of ActivistArtistA Gallery and Developer of Boynton Beach Arts District; “Since opening my gallery, in a run-down industrial park in 2012, my dream was to develop the area into an art district and cultural center.
It has taken only 2 years to do so. Now that it has been cleaned up, repainted, and nationally branded–it’s ready to be presented to the arts world. Lee Ann Lester is vital to this effort and it’s with much gratitude that I thank you for accepting our proposal to participate under Palm Beach’s flagship art exposition: ART PALM BEACH.”
Lee Ann Lester, Founder and Organizer of ArtPalmBeach, “Palm Beach County has a great legacy in supporting the arts and is home to many of Florida’s leading art and cultural institutions. Art Synergy will create a new bridge for winter residents and ArtPalmBeach visitors to explore this cultural legacy and create an annual destination to enjoy Palm Beach County Art Week events.”
The first evening of Art Synergy begins at ART al’ FRESCO at the Boynton Beach Art District, on January 24th 7pm-1am. ART al’ FRESCO will feature “Sensabilities: Cheryl Maeder and Ali Miranda” at the ActivistArtistA Gallery, a walking tour of the Murals of the Bay Gates Projects, special performances and showcasing of work by local area artists. Each art district will offer a weekend of scheduled gallery walks, symposiums, open studio visits, special exhibitions, poetry readings, architectural tours, film previews, and art performances.
