Lighthouse ArtCenter Unveils A Colorful Faculty Exhibit 
& Prized Private Collection  
 
Art Available to View & Purchase Online Through December 31, 2020 
 
September 1, 2020 – Tequesta, Fla. – The Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery unveils its first completely virtual art exhibition. The colorful “Faculty Exhibit & Treasures from the Collection” is available online for art lovers, collectors and artists through December 31, 2020. The exhibition will feature over 200 works by the Lighthouse ArtCenter’s talented faculty as well as pieces from the gallery’s private collection. Faculty artwork includes ceramics, glass, jewelry, sculpture, photography, oil, watercolor and acrylic paintings. The ArtCenter’s private collection includes “Woodland Waterfall” from landscape artist John Lee Fitch and “Son of Apollo” from contemporary artist Mark T. Smith. Multiple pieces are available by one of Florida’s most famous artists, Purvis Young. Young’s work depicts the struggles and joys of Miami’s poor black community and can be found at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art and two Smithsonian museums. 100% of the proceeds from the ArtCenter’s private collection will benefit the ArtCenter. All of the art can be viewed and purchased online at lighthousearts.org. 
 
The Lighthouse ArtCenter has provided uninterrupted arts and cultural programming for over fifty years. This virtual exhibition, shown through a digital magazine, is one way the ArtCenter has adapted to current times to continue to bring art to our community,”states Curator Janeen Mason. “The pandemic has given us an opportunity to lay the groundwork for the future through the addition of online exhibitions and classes that have expanded our reach.
 
The online exhibition can be used by art enthusiasts and collectors to purchase new art or by budding artists to learn more about the Lighthouse ArtCenter’s many esteemed instructors. Registration is open now for the next session of virtual art classes which begin August 31. Virtual classes are offered in ceramics, jewelry making, painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture. The classes vary in price, with proceeds used to pay for the not-for-profit’s instructors and to continue the organization’s mission of connecting community through a vibrant school of art, unique exhibitions, and diverse special events.
