Art: Watching artists create their work can be fascinating, as it allows one to enter into their world, watch their processes, and then see the images emerge from a blank canvas. This Friday night, starting at 7 p.m., 20 artists will start with a 16-inch-by-20-inch canvas and for the next 90 minutes will create their work in a variety of mediums on site at the Organic Music Café in Lake Worth.
At 8:45 p.m., an auction will begin, with bids starting at $20. It’s an opportunity to mingle with the art community of emerging and established regional artists and art lovers and buy art for your collection. The Twenty Artists/Twenty Bucks event has been organized by independent art curator and artist Talya Lerman and artist/author Sharon Koskoff.
The café is located at 332 N. Dixie Highway in Lake Worth. For directions, call (561) 667-8775. Admission to the event is free. For more information, call Koskoff at (561) 699-7899 or Lerman at (561) 543-0219. –– K. Deits
