Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary (PBM+C), presented by Art Miami, returns for its seventh edition March 21-24 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. PBM+C brings world-class, investment-quality works from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries with a roster of internationally respected galleries from Austria, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Canada, Columbia, Venezuela, and the United States, the culturally savvy and discerning collecting audiences of the Palm Beaches.

The fair will open with an exclusive, invitation-only VIP Preview, benefiting the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, on March 21, from 5 to 9 p.m. The preview will kick-off with the presentation of the Lifetime Achievement Award to American art collector, film producer, actress, model, and Warhol superstar (Baby) Jane Holzer in the VIP Lounge.

Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens will serve as a satellite venue for the fair and will showcase an exciting exhibition by 2024 Artist in Residence Jordi Mollà, “Savage Garden (Jardín Salvaje),” in partnership with Paul Fisher Gallery. Learn more about the exhibit here.

Holden Luntz Gallery in Palm Beach will showcase a special exhibition at the entry to the fair entitled “Bernie Taupin – Two Sides of the Sixties,” featuring 15 mixed-media paintings by Taupin, each a re-imagining of the iconic photographs by his dear friend, Terry O’Neill. Born Bernard John Taupin, Taupin is a life-long artist. Over the years, Taupin’s artwork has evolved from abstract expressionist to text-based content and minimalist pop-art concepts. His multi-layered creations include manipulated flags, scorched canvas, wax, wire, wood, cardboard, fabric, and resin.
