Art Season of Newsted
JUPITER, FL – November 3, 2017 – Cultural experiences are prevalent in South Florida’s bloodline with a wide range of opportunities that include visual and performing arts, and the fall and winter seasons are no exceptions to that trend… scratch that; to that lifestyle.
During this time, world-renowned musician and painter Jason Newsted (who graces our cover) will showcase his art at the Palm Beach Cultural Council (PBCC) and participate in numerous cultural events in Palm Beach County and South Florida, including art fairs such as Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary (PBM+C). His art exhibit, “RAWK,” has been curated by Nick Korniloff, owner and founder of PBM+C. Furthermore, a portion of the proceeds that will come from these events will benefit charitable organizations such as the Perry J. Cohen Foundation (PJCF) and Little Kids Rock.
Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary Art Fair
Coming on its second year, the PBM+C, presented by Art Miami LLC and sponsored by the City of West Palm Beach, is already an internationally recognized contemporary and modern art fair. On its inauguration last year, PBM+C saw over 17,500 attendees that included prestigious art collectors, advisors, connoisseurs, celebrities, and notable museum professional admire works on display from renowned artists such as Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, and Josef Albers over the fair’s four-day course. This year, Newsted will join several artists of this caliber in what is expected to be a banner event, running from January 11th to the 14th, 2018.
“In a year, the event has quickly established itself as the highest quality Modern and Contemporary Fair that has taken place Palm Beach County in the last decade,” says Korniloff. “The fair featuring dealers from around the world that showcased the finest works from the 20th and 21st centuries.”
The fair is the eighth in the Art Miami group, the most successful of which are Art Miami and Wynwood where Newsted will also be exhibiting on December 5th through the 10th, 2017 and February 15th through the 19th, 2018; respectively.

Starting on December 1st, 2017, Newsted will be showcasing his “RAWK” art exhibit at the Main Gallery of the PBCC. The exhibition will run until February 3rd, 2018.
