The Cultural Council for Palm Beach County will unveil two striking exhibitions in its gallery spaces January 27. “Visualizing Climate Disruption,” on view to April 8, will take over the Main Gallery at the Cultural Council for Palm Beach County in Lake Worth Beach, while “Molly Aubry: Dark Luminosity” will command attention in the Solo Gallery to March 11.
In “Visualizing Climate Disruption,” more than 40 works by 15 artists will explore the effects of climate disruption and engage audiences in considering topics such as endangered species, shrinking habitats, pollution, and coastal resiliency. Palm Beach County artists are uniquely positioned to observe the effects of climate disruption, as Florida is on the front lines of sea level rise, climbing temperatures, catastrophic storms, devastation of coral reefs, and disappearing seagrasses. The featured artists hope to collaborate with scientists to create interactive materials and educational programming that reaches and inspires broad audiences.
“Molly Aubry: Dark Luminosity” marks the West Palm Beach-based professional artist’s first solo exhibition. In her works, Aubry combines painterly and digital processes to explore entangled perceptual worlds, utilizing pigments, graphite, digital collage, and spray paint to create kaleidoscopic illusions that merge what’s real and imagined. Referencing light, water, otherworldly planets, and living cells, these mixed-media works invite the viewer to see themselves as part of an interconnected universe and ponder their space within. Aubry is one of six Palm Beach County professional artists chosen by a committee for a coveted Solo Gallery exhibition.
The galleries are open to tour Tuesdays through Saturdays, from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, click here or call (561) 471-2901.
