A Hidden Gem in Lake Worth

Recently avid fan, Dr. Bill Sherer, visited my new nonprofit down in the City of Lake Worth.   He posted a really powerful 5-star review on Yelp.  I created Benzaiten Center for Creative Arts to serve people just like him, so it was especially gratifying to see such a glowing testimonial.

The following is an excerpt from his Yelp review:This is a hidden artistic gem that I discovered in Lake Worth where I was able to actively participate in the art of glass blowing and sculpting and I was completely blown away (no pun intended). Benzaiten is the Japanese Goddess who represents all things flowing i.e., love, knowledge, music, the river and in our case hot molten glass and bronze.

I have been fascinated with the artistry of glassworks my whole life and always stop and watch a glass artist work when I have the rare chance to see them (such as in Italy) and never thought that I would be able to participate in a working glass studio in Palm Beach, but I am now glad to report that this gallery, studio, and workshop is available for the public.

Overall, this was an fascinating and wonderful experience for me and I highly recommend the experience for anyone that is remotely interest in glassworks. If you just want to visit the gallery (lots of items are for sale) and watch a artist work, you can do that anytime and you should probably call before dropping by.
