Art Boca Raton is currently in the midst of its third year of bringing emerging, postwar and contemporary art to Boca Raton, from its pop-up confines at FAU’s Research Park. The five-day shindig (the first public day is Thursday) welcomes nearly 40 galleries from Europe and the Americas to our favorite city. To help you navigate such a generous surplus of art, we thought we’d spotlight five not to miss.

Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts- A stellar contemporary-art gallery in upstate New York, Brunelli houses Austria’s Martin C. Herbst, whose tricks of the eye include cosmic portraits, painted on spheres, that distort when viewed from different angles; and faces painted on mirrored, folded aluminum panels. Brunelli is also home to South Florida’s Ray Gross, who creates hand-painted, hyper-realistic sculptures of everyday art objects.
