Lecture Series

Palm Beach Photographic Centre presents its annual Lecture Series, our annual lecture series featuring the nation’s leading photographic and digital artists, who are at the Centre to conduct workshops as part of our Master Artists Workshops program. Beginning at 7:30 PM each Wednesday during the season, the week’s workshop presenters speak openly about their work and its development, or on topics related to their workshop. Unlike any other program in the region, the Lecture Seriesis a casual opportunity to hear and meet such artists as Dan Burkholder, Lewis Kemper and Vincent Versace, among dozens of other leading figures in America’s photographic community. The program is free to members of the Centre and open to the general public. Presenters are confirmed each week in advance of their workshops and lecture appearance. Please call the Photographic Centre with any questions and to confirm a particular lecturer at 561.253.2600. As always we look forward to seeing our members and to meeting new faces at these enjoyable and informative artist talks.

Tentative Schedule


Artist in Residence Lecture - Matt Stock
FREE to all

Matt Stock believes in the power of darkness. By that he means that there is a "true power within shadows and darkness itself." He believes that power is creativity. Matt has spent the past 8 years working in wild places and in inhospitable environments throughout Florida, the Caribbean and beyond photographing at night. Matt will give an introduction to his version of light painting and share some of the interesting encounters he has had over the years while photographing: sharks, wolverines, and more! In this introductory talk, Matt will share his passion for night photography, and talk about some of the seldom explored gems in South Florida he has had the privilege of photographing.

* This lecture will be held from 4:00-5:00pm on July 7, 2016.

All lectures start at 7:30 pm unless otherwise noted.
