Like a seedling pushing its way up through the soil to unfurl into the nurturing sunlight, so grows the art scene in Boynton Beach. The ActivisitArtistA Gallery is playing host to the latest in a series of new art shows, the "Packaging Nature Exhibition," which opens on Thursday and runs through May 17. Through the use of various media, ranging from paint to sound, human nature and the environment are explored. Exhibiting artists include Kim Fay, Elle Schorr, and Ryan Spinelli as well as a live musical performance by Bill Hartmann. In conjunction with Boynton Beach Art Walk, the opening reception begins at 6 p.m. and is free. Artist Saramati Narasimhan will be on-site adorning attendees with her "Henna Imagery" wearable art. ActivistArtistA Gallery is at 422 W. Industrial Ave., Boynton Beach. Visit activistartista.blogspot.com.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
