Exhibition and Reception for the New Lake Worth Artists Of the Lake Worth Art Lofts


On Friday, November 1, Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery holds a reception for its newest neighbors, the artists from the Lake Worth Artists’ Lofts. The Artists’ Lofts are live/work spaces created by Lake Worth’s CRA as part of the Arts Renaissance and the rapidly growing arts movement in town. Twelve diverse artists have taken these spaces and are quickly turning them into a working haven and a tightly knit community. These artists will be displaying their works, performing, and introducing themselves to their neighbors and the neighborhood. The synergy created by the influx of talent in the community is palpable. The evening is free and open to the public. A wine and food buffet, music and the mingling of the gallery’s artists with the Art Loft artists will take place from 6-9 PM. A great time for the entire community to come to J Street for an evening of fun and revelry. Many of these lofts are now occupied by art producing families as well as singles. Among those either showing their works that evening or performing are drum makers and players, ceramic artists, furniture makers, jewelers and furniture makers. Greg Karabensh crafts exquisite “celestial” drums with tonal variations displaying exquisite sound. Anna Karabensh performs on the drums and teaches drumming in the public schools. Curtis Sporlein and Annie Sporlein Fam bring fine furniture making and painting to the gallery mix as well as a young and growing family. Andrea Lambrakis will be bringing an array of her ceramic works. Anthony Fala of Antonio Design Studio is a high end jeweler will works in many prominent shops and galleries throughout the county. Nick Nardone is an independent bassist and touring artist whom the town looks forward to hearing a lot in Lake Worth’s local music scene. Clay.Glass.Metal.Stone Cooperative Gallery is sponsored by the Flamingo Clay Studio, a non-profit arts organization whose mission is to provide affordable studio and gallery space for three-dimensional artists. The gallery is located at 15 South J Street in downtown Lake Worth. Hours are Sunday thru Tuesday, 10AM-5PM. Wednesday thru Saturday, 10AM-10PM.
