From now through January 6, 2018, the Armory will host the 2nd Biennial of “Artists of Art Salon” curated by Elle Schorr, founder and organizer of Art Salons at the Armory. This exhibition features trends and ideas in contemporary art as seen through the eyes of some of South Florida’s most influential artists, all of whom have given presentations at Elle Schorr’s Art Salons at the Armory Art Center over the past two years. The works, created by twenty-one locally, nationally, and internationally recognized artists will fill the Armory’s Montgomery Hall. Paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, fiber works, mixed media, videos, and installations will be included in the exhibition to address a wide range of social, cultural, and aesthetic concerns.

Art Salons at the Armory have been contributing to the understanding of contemporary art practices in South Florida since April, 2012. Presentations have been given by artists about their own work, about the work of well-known artists who influenced them, and about professional artist development. The first Artists of Art Salon exhibition was in 2015 at the Armory. The show exhibited the work of fifty-seven artists who had spoken at Art Salons.

Elle Schorr said, “I am thrilled to be curating a 2nd exhibition of artists who have spoken at Art Salons. They have collectively become a “Who’s Who” of influential contemporary artists in South Florida. Many are on the faculties at South Florida universities, colleges, and high schools. Many are winners of the prestigious South Florida Cultural Consortium Awards and have exhibited locally, often nationally, and internationally. The work they show to be representative of trends in contemporary conceptual practice, including work using a wide array of materials, techniques, and technologies.”
