LULA Lake Worth Arts and the City of Lake Worth’s Historic Preservation staff invited artists in Palm Beach County to submit artwork for the Centennial Postcard Project. Known as a community that embraces artistic expression the City of Lake Worth is celebrating its 100 anniversary this year. The goal of this project was to provide a Centennial keepsake for the community to purchase while promoting the arts and historic preservation in Lake Worth. Proceeds from the sale of the Centennial Postcards will benefit LULA Lake Worth Arts and the City’s Historic Preservation Program. Five works of art were selected for the postcard project, making the selection process competitive.
- Photographer Jim Stafford of Lake Worth’s photos titled “Casino Building” and “Street Painting Festival” were chosen as part of the photography category.
- Artist Shannon S. Torrence of Lake Worth submitted an acrylic on paper painting titled“Now & Then, Where the Tropics Begin” as part of the vintage category.
- Wellington artist, Corinne Ingerman’s watercolor, pen and ink painting titled “3 girls onthe beach” represented the visual arts painting category.
- Lake Worth’s John Vincent Palozzi’s submitted a digitally enhanced photo of City Hallunder the graphic and digital category that showcased the architecture in Lake Worth.
The artists will be credited on the back of their selected postcard including a small bio. The selection panel consisted of art professionals Tara Maule, President of the Lake Worth Art League, the City of Lake Worth’s Mayor, Pam Triolo, and Historian, Mark Easton, of the Lake Worth Herald. The panelists reviewed the submitted images and selected the qualified artists based on credentials and artistic design. The postcards will be sold in a package of 5 for $5.00 and will be available at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County’s gift boutique, Lake Worth CRA, Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery on J Street and Studio 205 on Lake Avenue.
