Photo Flash: WSJ Critic Terry Teachout and More Attend CULTURE & COCKTAILS at The Colony

Rena Blades, President & Chief Executive Officer of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, today announced that this season's third CULTURE & COCKTAILS event attracted more than 120 people to The Colony Hotel Pavilion, located at 155 Hammon Avenue in Palm Beach. Scroll down for photos from the event, featuring Wall Street Journal critic Terry Teachout and more!

The conversation was with Teachout, the celebrated critic, biographer, librettist, playwright, blogger and author of "Sightings," a column about the arts in America that appears biweekly in the Friday Wall Street Journal. Mr. Teachout blogs at About Last Night and has written about the arts for many other magazines and newspapers, including the New York Times and National Review. He was interviewed by William Hayes, Producing Artistic Director of Palm Beach Dramaworks.

The next CULTURE & COCKTAILS At The Colony will be held on Monday, March 7, and it will be a conversation about "Art & Architecture" with Gilbert C. Maurer, Director of the Hearst Foundation, who oversaw the award-winning design of their new corporate headquarters in Manhattan. A distinguished art collector, Mr. Maurer was a creator of the Hearst 8x10 Photography Biennial competition showcasing young photographers.
