Lake Worth’s Art Studio Cafe finds a new home on J Street


Lake Worth’s Art Studio Café has found a new home.

The popular spot will be moving to 16 S. J Street, owner Maria Paz said in an email statement.

“We are excited about the new location (and) being more downtown,” she said.

Paz could not be reached for additional comment.

She told The Palm Beach Post earlier this month that the 800-square-foot site was closing its Second Avenue North space on Dec. 14. Patti Sheldon, Paz’s landlord, had texted her on the Sunday after Thanksgiving to tell Paz she would not renew the lease.

Sheldon said the lease ends on Jan. 14.

Mike Olive, pastor at Common Grounds Church and owner of the church’s coffee shop only a few doors down from where Paz’s business is moving, said he’s looking forward to his new neighbor.

“We look forward to J Street becoming a a great spot for people to come,” he said.

The Art Studio Cafe opened March 1, replacing the popular Mother Earth Sanctuary Cafe, which had been at the location for close to 10 years. The studio was a gallery for Paz, who paints portraits and murals, to display her work along with up to 10 other artists. The work ranges from paintings to pottery. Handmade jewelry was also on display and for sale.
