Are you familar with the Boca Museum Artists' Guild?

The Boca Raton Museum of Art may be renowned for its extensive collection of fine art and for its impressive array of exhibitions but few may know the significant impact the museum has with current artists working in our community. The Artists’ Guild, an auxiliary of the Museum, is a very organized and self-sufficient community of artists who maintain a gallery in downtown Delray Beach. With over 20 juried exhibitions a year and over 350 members, the Boca art guild fosters the success of local artists while supporting the Museum with a portion of its proceeds.

Upon entering The Artists’ Guild Gallery I was met by Lorrie Turner (above) who has been involved in the arts since she was a child and has been a Boca art guild member ever since she first moved to Florida nearly nine years ago. She overflowed with information and enthusiasm as she told me everything there is to know about how the guild works. However, the main source of her excitement seemed to be the sense of community created among the members of the guild. Lorrie explained that when she moved to Florida and didn’t know a soul, she joined the Boca Museum artist guild and was provided with an immediate circle of friends which has only grown throughout the years. The guild gives artists an opportunity not only to exhibit and sell their work but to network with other artists and grow through each other’s feedback and collaboration.

I spoke with local photographer and curator for the Palm Beach Photographic Centre in West Palm Beach, Durga Garcia (above), who is in the process of becoming a signature member of the guild. This status would allow her to exhibit in the gallery space so long as her works pass the double jury process, of which I have no doubt they will. Durga is very active in the South Florida art scene and her work has been awarded in many local, national and international juried competitions in addition to her work at the Boca art guild.

So, for all you art enthusiasts out there don’t forget to visit The Artists’ Guild Gallery and see what today’s local artists are coming up with. Keep in mind there is the “Artists’ Choice Gallery” section in that rear of the Boca art guild where they display smaller canvas pieces, prints, photographs and sculptures for those art lovers on a budget. So stop on by and show your support for local artists as well as the Boca Museum of Art!

For more information please visit 512 East Atlantic Ave, Delray Beach, FL 33483 (561.278.7877) to learn more about becoming a member of the Boca Museum artist guild.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard

On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
