Get Into the Groove with Art on the Move

Studies show that the average person spends less than five seconds viewing modern art in a gallery. But fans of the kinetic artwork created by internationally renowned artists Ralfonso and Cork Marcheschi,would beg to differ. For decades, Ralfonso and Cork have wowed viewers with their moving art displays. Ralfonso focuses on light and sound sculptures that move with the environment, such as wind and water. Cork uses his expansive knowledge of electricity to create illuminated and electric masterpieces. Enjoy a special sneak peek of the artists’ creations at a preview exhibition, titled “Kinetic Art.” The exhibit opens Saturday and runs till February 2 in the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County’s Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation Gallery, located at 601 Lake Ave. in Lake Worth. “Kinetic Art” is a preview of the upcoming 2013 International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium, which will take place in Boynton Beach in February.
