Cultural Council hosts 40th anniversary celebration


The Cultural Council of Palm Beach County and Woolems Luxury Home Builders, 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.

The West Palm Beach-based Woolems Luxury Home Builders hosted an invitation-only 40th anniversary party at the Cultural Council in October that was attended by friends and co-workers.

The exhibit was held at the Council’s Lake Worth headquarters through Nov. 3. 

“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,” said 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.”

The Cultural Council is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, including a calendar of area cultural activities, go online to
