Culture continues to gain a foothold at The Royal Poinciana Plaza with the debut of two new galleries ready to host intriguing exhibits.
Richard Diebenkorn’s “Untitled” and “Ocean Park #126” on view at Lévy Gorvy
Renowned gallery Lévy Gorvy is putting its stamp on Palm Beach’s arts scene as it settles into the Slat House in The Royal Poinciana Plaza. “We have conceived Lévy Gorvy not as a ‘pop-up,’ but rather as a full gallery, bringing our artists and international program to one of the most prestigious residences for collectors in America,” says co-founder Brett Gorvy. Debuting with artworks from the likes of Willem de Kooning and Mark Rothko and anchored by Richard Diebenkorn’s “Ocean Park #126,” the exhibition space puts an emphasis on paintings, works on paper and sculpture, as well as continuing the gallery’s REVEAL initiative, which highlights one rare masterpiece per month and is accompanied by rich contextual and educational resources. On the docket this month, the venue will be hosting historical focus exhibitions, as well as showcasing new work by its artists. “During this last year,” Gorvy adds, “we have sorely missed the community that makes up the art world as much as the sharing of art in person, and both Dominique [Lévy] and I look forward to creating a safe space for conversation, beauty and interchange.” Keep your eyes peeled for the debut of major new work by Tu Hongtao in February, which will mark the Chinese artist’s first exhibition in the United States. 50 Cocoanut Row, Ste. 122, Palm Beach, 646.831.0844, levygorvy.com
Mary Corse’s “Untitled (White Narrow Inner Band with White Sides)” on view at Pace Gallery
Adorning the whitewashed gallery walls of Pace this month, American artist Mary Corse’s subtle, serene works arrive to soothe the eye. The eponymous show spotlights six recent paintings evocative of Corse’s signature artistic style, which utilizes glass microspheres in acrylic on her canvases, resulting in an effervescence and stunning display of light. “While she has shown broadly over the last decade, it is a great pleasure to introduce Mary’s work to South Florida,” says Pace Vice President Adam Sheffer. “We are delighted that she has made six new works specifically for this exhibition. Her installations are proprioceptive and perceptual, and nothing can replace their in-person experience. A painting by the artist is also held in the local Norton Museum of Art’s permanent collection, so we are pleased to expand on that presence in the area.” Also on view is a new outdoor sculpture from Corse’s Beam series. 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Ste.
