The Armory Art Center Partners with Art Rock for a One Day Art Show + Indie Marketplace Event
Art Rock is a cash and carry art show + indie marketplace featuring pop-surrealist, outsider, lowbrow, and street art alongside D.I.Y fashion, funky jewelry, and home deco items located at the Armory Art Center. Art you will want to buy made by accomplished and up and coming South Florida artists.
The event will showcase over 60 artist’s booths packed full of affordable art you can hang on your walls, wear, eat, admire or even sip your coffee from. Showcasing art in all mediums including painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, photography, fabric, edible art and more! Live artist demonstrations, complimentary swag bags are available for the first 100 people. Armory faculty will be doing demonstrations in wheel throwing, drawing and painting and will be conducting a free kids activity. Door prizes, food and drinks will add to the excitement of the day.
Art Rock Creator, Amanda Linton’s reason for bring the event to the Armory was inspired by the Armory’s strong connection to the art community. “We wanted to create a venue for artists to sell their work, network and meet other artists, galleries and collectors face to face.” Amanda says, “My husband and I are Artists ourselves and with the success of our sister show STITCH ROCK, we thought a similar marketplace with a focus on fine art was defiantly needed. There are plenty of annual art shows with the same art year after year, but we wanted a place to showcase art we would be happy to hang on our own walls.”
