Open Exhibit Treal Art Studios
Exhibit Treal is an 501c3 Non Profit in partnership with Palm Beach Multicultural Organization | West Palm Beach Carnival that focuses on providing opportunities for black artists in Palm Beach County and beyond by curating our own art exhibits and shows as well as artist development. The central focus for Exhibit Treal is to use the arts, be it visual, musical, writing or more to give back to the community and get others involved.
Exhibiit Treal started in a tiny apartment in Dec 16, 2014 and has since caught on in the mind and hearts of many who have come into contact with what it is we do. Since our formation we've not only provided artists with oppurtunties to showcase their work (some of whom have even so much as benefitted from gaing art employments and other amazing feats because of it) but through it we've been able to feed the homeless, collect school supplies for students, toys for children, offer community hair cuts, raise funding and awareness for other programs and charities as well as even started our own community book fair.
And for us that is only the beginning of what we believe we can achieve.
The reason we have started a gofundme fundraiser is in hopes to help with getting us toward being about to open our own space... Exhibit Treal Studios. The space would serve as a art gallery/ community library and where we can hold our community programs through the different arts.
The funds would be used to help us lease a the space, as we are a newly stared non-profit.
Our dream has been to use art to give back. To inspire youth's and provide the people a place where they can be immerse in arts and grow. We truly believe what we have and been doing is special and much needed in our community.
The fact the anyone would take their hard earn cash on support our dream... vision and goal the words "Thank You" simply wouldn't do. We appreciate having the people in our corner because this isn't something we do for fame or attention but for the people.
Northwood Village’s monthly “Art and Wine” got a major dosage of Trealness. After debuting in Northwood over a year ago, Exhibit Treal major its return. And it was major! The Bombshell Boutique had recently relocated and was ready to be a force within Palm Beaches rising art district. And through a beautiful partnership with Exhibit Treal, the first in many art exhibitions was born.
“Thee Sophisticatedly Ratchet” Erotic Art show
came in like a whirlwind from the very beginning, spinning the vibes that keep the people in the zone was DJ OG. Effortlessly controlling the crowds and bringing excitement in every corner was the energetic Empress Prestige. The masses were treated to stimulating and sensual artwork exhibited, whilst be left in awe as J Vibe and Harold Caudio created masterpieces live on the canvas of angelic models.
Attendees were heard as describing it all as transporting them to Wynwood or LA, Luney Guillaume was quoted many at times simply stating “Black Excellence!” Sponsors traveled far and wide to be part of the experience. Such an example was Jay-Jill Cosmetics, coming from Gainesville, Florida. The crowd weren’t just spectators filing in for selfies, they came with full intent to support. Buying out the boutique’s “Sunnies” and circulating the dollar with sponsors Blush’D Boudoir Boutique, Our Guilty Pleasures Lingerie, KYTA Bees Media. The rich deliciousness of Sweet Brown Cakes, LLC “Sexy” cupcakes were as though they came directly from the plate of God! Keeping the trend of making sure to use Exhibit Treal to bring awareness to the community, FoundCare was setup with their "Level Up" program.
The exhibitions artist were the superstars. The attendees their biggest fans. Singing the praises, taking photos together, and becoming collectors of their works. Jaws dropped and eyes widen as every turn took you further into the sexual fantasies dancing across canvas and popping out of photography.
Performances by Blaine held audience members finding love, King Mob’s energy had them bouncing and Liquid Sugar’s exotic dance had everyone hot and bothered!
The night was a major successes! The work will remain on exhibit until Aug 14th

It's been awhile but I'd like to update you on what Exhibit Treal has been up to. Well we recently collaborated with Poetry in Motion Productions for an art show called "Black Hollywood". It was an celebration of the 'Black Stars' in music, sports, entertainment and more. As that was happening, P.I.M.P held an casting call for their up-coming play "Pleasant City: Thee Choreopoem". All as our "We LIT" community book fair took place. You can read about it here: http://exhibittreal.blogspot.com/2016/06/celebrating-black-hollywood-with-arts.html
Following up on that, we were requested to make an return to Tropical Coolerfest for their fourth of July weekend kick off "Glow" edition. We were honored to take a part and have another "Outdoor" exhibit. It was without a doubt a great time.
And now we're excited to say during the upcoming Northwood Village's "Art & Wine" art walk at the end of this month the newly relocated The Bombshell Boutique has tapped to curate an art show. And what we've got going will be like no other...

We hope to see you all there. We've got some things in the works including curating an exhibition addressing the violence in our communities and our desires for justice. We'll be having panel discussions and more taking place during the exhibition's run, we're just in the process of locking in the space.
Well until next time. Thank you all for your contributions and for making us who we are. We look forward to the day we have the opening of our own space and see all your smiling faces their.
Be Safe. Keep What You Kill & Stay Treal.
