Elle Shorr Selected for Prestigious Show

Elle Schorr, an award winning photographer from Lake Worth, is one of eight artists, and the only one from Palm Beach County,  selected for an exhibition titled  Doing Business As…2012 , which will be shown at Gallery Six in the Main Library in Fort Lauderdale.  The exhibit is a showcase for artists who have graduated from Broward County’s Artists as Entrepreneur Institute, an intensive, business oriented four day program for artists.  It is facilitated by the Broward County Cultural Division, and offered each June in Fort Lauderdale.   Artists from Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami – Dade counties are invited to attend.

This year’s exhibition is the fourth annual Doing Business As… . The curators this year are artists and A.E.I. graduates Frank Crowley and JoAnn Nava, and their work will also be included in the exhibition.

“We have such a talented group of artists this year, including two South Florida Consortium winners,” says JoAnn Nava, contemporary folk artist who is also the DBA 2012 co-curator.  They are Nolan Haan, painter of cinder blocks and Louis Davis, creator of photo constructions.  Elle Schorr’s photographs are reflections taken on New York City streets, conveying the cacophony of city life, past and present.  Each captures the essence of a place in a split second, with all the unexpected bits that would otherwise be lost as she moved on with the crowd.

An illustrated catalogue is being published and will be available at the exhibition.  The show runs from January 13th through February 27, 2012 at Gallery Six, Main Library 100 South Andrews Ave.  Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301.  You are invited to an Opening Reception: January 25, 2012,  5:00 – 7:30 pm and the Closing Forum: February 22, 2012,  5:00 – 7:30 pm

The opening reception will feature A.E.I. graduates Jill Slaughter, writer and Nzinga, performance artist.  Storyteller Mij Byram will perform at the closing forum.  For further information or Elle Shorr at or
