Woolems Luxury Home Builders
Featuring Mixed Media Artwork Created by
Palm Beachers James & Eleanor Woolems
(Lake Worth, FL – November 1, 2018) Two local institutions – the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County and Woolems Luxury Home Builders – that are both celebrating their 40th anniversary this year recently partnered on a world premiere art exhibit by James and Eleanor Woolems. This is the first time the Palm Beach couple have exhibited their artwork together.
In addition, the West Palm Beach-based Woolems Luxury Home Builders hosted a special, by-invitation-
The exhibit is running at the Council's Lake Worth headquarters through November 3. Dazzling images of Woolems construction projects are on display in the Donald M. Ephraim Family Gallery, while the couple's personal artwork is being shown in the Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation Artist Resource Center. Mr. Woolems is represented by seven sculptures, while his wife will showcase seven of her paintings.
"It's an honor for the Cultural Council to premier the work of James and Eleanor Woolems. They are well known for their individual commercial endeavors but are typically reserved about exhibiting their personal work," says Nichole M. Hickey, the Council's Manager of Artist Services. "However, when I witnessed their breadth, range and creativity as artists, I knew we would be showing the public something extraordinary. And to have both the Council and Woolems Luxury Home Builders mark our 40th anniversary at the same time made this truly synergistic, indeed."
"Kudos for the Woolems 40th Anniversary Party at the Cultural Council, it was positively our kind of party," says Eleanor Woolems. "And thanks to all of our supportive, encouraging and steadfast friends that attended to cheer us onward!"
"The show was made tangible and materialized to the credit of the Cultural Council's audacious curator Nichole Hickey. She had confidence and a gifted vision to unify our lifetime work and we were so pleased with the outcome," she adds. "The complete experience was heartfelt and awe inspiring; so exciting and fun."
