A Presentation of Palm Beach Visual Arts
Deborah Pollack (Edward & Deborah Pollack Fine Art)
Deborah Pollack will present her lavishly illustrated new book, Palm Beach Visual Arts (Pelican Publishing Company, www.pelicanpub.com), the first volume to comprehensively explore the incredible story of the island and the painters, photographers, sculptors, artisans, art dealers, celebrities, and philanthropists drawn to it. Palm Beach Visual Arts uncovers, emphasizes, and analyzes the significant art created in Palm Beach, revealing in great detail, how a barrier island enclave of the super wealthy was transformed into a prominent and influential locus for the arts. And because West Palm Beach is just over the bridge, its art and artists are also explored.

How Art, Fashion, Technology & Globalism Define Art Deco Jewelry
Benjamin Macklowe (Macklowe Gallery)
The period between the First and Second World Wars was a time of radical change in modern life. Art, fashion, and broadened international communications all played key roles in defining the styles and tastes of the era that was most famously dominated by the geometric lines and striking simplicity of the Art Deco movement. In this lecture, Mr. Macklowe will offer an in depth look at jewelry from the late 1910s to the late 1930s by exploring how different facets of the era came together to define a crucial moment in design history.

Contemporary Culture: Where is the market going?
Michael Goedhuis (Michael Goedhuis)
Catching dynamism of the new, real cultural revolution happening in China has become a fact. It is happening in music, film, theatre, design, philosophy, architecture and art. But how will it evolve and what impact will it have, not only on the art-market both in China and the West, but on all of us, whether culture lovers or not, in the future?

Quality and Value in Collecting American Art
Thomas Colville (Thomas Colville Fine Art)
The talk will discuss the concept of quality as it relates to American Art through the middle of the 20th century and how it corresponds to value in the market place. Representative examples of American paintings and watercolors will be used to illustrate these concepts.
