Art Salons at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach are a unique gathering place for artists from throughout the region.
On the first Tuesday of each month, from October to May, Art Salons at the Armory Art Center offer thoughtful presentations by influential professional artists whose artwork is being shown in the museums and galleries in South Florida.
Presenters show their work, and talk about their influences, followed by stimulating discussions between the artist and the audience. Our lively discussions cover the gamut of contemporary conceptual art practices, including cultural, socio/political, environmental, race and gender focused and aesthetic practices, the materials and techniques used to convey these ideas, and where we fit into the world of contemporary conceptual art.
Art Salons also offer the opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, enhance professional development, share useful resources, and to network with other artists.
Elle Schorr, a well-known artist / photographer who spends much of her time at museums and art exhibits both locally and internationally, has been facilitating Art Salons, held at the Armory Art Center since 2012.
All are welcome to join in these timely explorations of trends in contemporary art and individual artists’ work.
All salons are $10 payable at the door and meet in the Armory Library. Come join in the lively discussions!
6:30 – 8:30 pm
