Give Art for Peace a Chance

While most art we view daily is spray-painted graffiti by world-renowned masters like “Biatsch” and “Neckface” (though it should be said, we love Neckface), one local group is showing the world what painters can do with a more traditional medium: the canvas. The group goes by the handle The Barn Artists (aptly named since the collective originally met while painting a barn in Hobe Sound). That picturesque setting might be the inspiration for their new (indoor) exhibit titled “Art for Peace,” a varied showcase of works on canvas illustrating their views on harmony via the natural world. The event is free, just like the tree huggers in all of us. See it at Palm Beach Community College’s Eissey Campus Theatre (11051 Campus Dr., off PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens). The lobby gallery is open Mondays through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., but it will be closed December 20 through January 1. Call 561-207-5905.
Starts: Dec. 19. Daily, 2007
