Today we are going to Muse about an upcoming art exhibition. If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

The week just past
This week has been dominated by Croquet, with a three-day Six Wicket American Rules Doubles Tournament held at the National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach, followed by a social pot luck and Golf Croquet event at the center. My partner and I started out well winning all our matches the first day. However we faded the second day and ended up third in our Flight.
The Pot luck was more successful. We brought ribs.
This is my way of telling you I have not had much time to be Musing this week. But I will tell you about an upcoming Art Exhibition. If you are in the area you may want to attend.
Upcoming Art Exhibition
The Palm Beach Cultural Council is opening an exhibition titled Monochrome at the center, The Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building, 601 Lake Avenue, Lake Worth, FL 33460. I know about this because I am one of the artists in the exhibition. The exhibition will run October 31 through December 6, 2014.
Thursday October 30 there is an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. You may want to attend.
Here is information about the exhibition as provided by the Palm Beach Cultural Council.
October 31 through December 6, 2014
Exhibition Preview: October 30
You’re invited to a special preview of the Cultural Council’s latest exhibition, Monochrome at the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building.
Monochrome is the use of a single color in a work of art. This seemingly simple process introduces many challenges for the artist. For the photographer, it requires an entirely new way of seeing. For example, the colors red and green when translated into a monochromatic image look almost exactly the same because of their position in the color spectrum. For the painter, variations of one color give an image form. It is a much more difficult task than simply adding a new color. For the sculptor, three-dimensional shapes are vital to the final piece. The way light curves around a shape on a block of white marble gives it dimension. The challenge is to control those shapes from all viewing angles.
This exhibition demonstrates how 14 Palm Beach County artists have mastered this process in their own medium. Artists on display are Vincent Cacace, Joel Cohen, Misoo Filan, Mark Forman, Stephen Futej, Jacek Gancarz, William Halliday, Mimi Langlois, Kandy Lopez, Sally Ordile, Michael Price, Scherer & Ouporov, Tom Tribby and Harvey Zipkin.
