May 12- May 24 :

“Derby Days”

 

Gallery View

 

 

May 12- May 24 : “Derby Days”: This is our show with a “Horse” theme, re-titled.

The show is being held earlier this year to reach the equestrian community before they leave the area for the summer.

 “Birds of a Feather”

 

 

May 26-June 7 “Birds of a Feather”  This show is opened to photographers, painters, sculptors, potters, jewelers and all fine artists who love our feathered friends. Again, if this does not evoke “bird” in you, and you can interpret this in any other way, you works are welcome

June 23-July5 “Hook Line and Sinker”We go from the air and tree tops, to the deep blue sea with this show. Nautical themes are what we anticipate, with lots and lots of fish and sea creatures. Once again, if this does not evoke “fish” in you, you can interpret this in any other way.

“Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish”

Shoe Fetish Gallery View

 

July 7- July 19: “Shoe Fetish/ Foot Fetish” This proved to be last year’s favorite show among our patrons who purchased more works than in any other show of the year . We like adding some levity to the hot summer by introducing the foot theme into our mix. Let’s get some pictures of these works into the gallery a few weeks early so we can get some more TV coverage on this. We want to bring the shoe loving crowds into the gallery to purchase your works. Last year some retired shoe manufacturers came into the gallery to buy.

 

August 4-August 16:

“Peanuts Rising”

 

 

Artwork by Bea Doone-Merena

August 4-August 16: “Peanuts Rising” formerly known as “The Male Form” We are repeating this successful special request exhibition. As in the past, this special show came from artists who felt slighted by the creations and shows that mostly feature the female form. They wanted equal time We welcome your interpretations.

 

 

August 18 to August 30

” Bread and Roses”

 

?????   Your Interpretation ?????

 

August 18 to August 30- ” Bread and Roses” in honor of Women’s Equality Day. The title, “Bread and Roses”, came from the 1912 Laurence Mill strike where women fought for their rights, asking for raises for bread, but for roses in their lives as well. This exhibition honors women, their contribution to the world and to art. Just being a woman in the arts (with or without a message) brings honor to the exhibit.

 

September 1-September 20th

 “Speak Their Names” Revisited: A Special Invitation Show

 


September 1-September 20th- “Speak Their Names” Revisited: A Special Invitation Show.

 

 

September 22-October 4:

“Exotica/Erotica” formerly called, “The Naked Truth”

 

Artwork by Pedro Gabriel Antonio

 

September 22-October 4: “Exotica/Erotica” formerly called, “The Naked Truth” We are always happy to repeat this show again and again, and think our new title will refresh our audience. This is a wide open topic that can be interpreted as broadly as you wish.

 

October 6- October 18:

“The Petting Zoo”

 

Artwork by Gin Blische

 

 

October 6 – October 18: “The Petting Zoo” formerly know at the Cat-O-Strophic Event: This wildly popular was all about cats, and now, all other animals. Cats of every shape, color and kind, and their brothers and sisters in the animal kingdom. We will again reach out to all of the animal rescue venues, pet shops and veterinarians as we publicize this event.

 

October 20-November 1

“Halloween, Freaky”

 

Gallery View With Artist Yury Lobo

 

 

October 20-November 1: “Halloween, Freaky” replaces the Annual “Day(s) of the Dead” Lake Worth is now doing “Day of the Dead,” so we thought we would encompass a wider range of the Halloween Scene this year. This event brought purchasing patrons into the gallery long after the exhibit was taken down.

 

November 2- November 15

2nd Annual Judaic Show

 

Gallery View

 

Thursday, November 2- Wednesday, November 15: 2nd Annual Judaic Show. We plan this show to occur over a month before Hanukkah so that works can sell in time for holiday giving.

ART SYNERGY is a county-wide movement to unify and promote the diverse culture of our vibrant arts community. In early 2013 a group of local artists pulled together to create Think Tank. Dedicated to finding solutions instead of dwelling on problems, the Think Tank was a forum for local artists and art advocates to come together and discuss ideas to help the local scene grow.

The first initiative was a program of events to coincide with ArtPalmBeach; in hopes that the local scene could benefit  from the popular art event much like Miami has benefited from Art Basel. Soon it was named ART SYNERGY and took shape. Locals artists Rolando Change Barrero, Craig McInnes and Freddy Hennevelt spearheaded the organization.

ART SYNERGY’s future goals include events that will happen periodically throughout the year, the addition of more participating art districts, initiatives that help unify the many diverse art entities, and talented artists that Palm Beach County has to offer. With the help of local CRAs, Public Arts Departments, the DDA in WPB and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, to name a few, ART SYNERGY has only one place to go… onward and upward. Currently, Rolando Chang Barrero, President and Ilene Gruber Adams, Vice President are managing the organization along with the support of many artists and art lovers in the community.

Deborah is well known for her great love of nature. She gives people a glimpse of how animals live in the wild in a secret world, raise their young, court and survive. Her quest for nature has taken her from the Everglades National Park to Denali National Park in Alaska.

“Waiting For Mom” by Deborah LaFogg Docherty

 

 

Deborah grew up on a farm in Connecticut, surrounded by nature and began drawing as a child, copying her mother’s paintings of Bambi, Flower and Thumper on her bedroom wall. Since they were painted on the hall wall, her parents quickly provided her with coloring books, paints and crayons to encourage her creativity. She began drawing birds in grade school, winning awards at the school and painted and drew every summer and during the school year, often forgoing homework! She earned her college degree with a dual major in Illustration and Commercial Art. She graduated with honors and moved to South Florida where she has worked for many years as a graphic artist for The Sun Sentinel. She is currently a Special Sections Designer for the paper and in her “spare time” teaches at Old School Square in Delray Beach, does local workshops and demos.

Mediums used by Deborah include pastel, oils and acrylics and may involve an under painting for added luminosity and atmosphere. Each medium requires different procedures. With pastels it involves washes of color and turpentine. In oils she blocks out colors. With acrylics she builds on layers going from light to dark.

She has received many national and local awards. She has illustrated two children’s books: “Woodcut Jill” raising money for the National Crocodile Refuge and “Rosie’s Song”. A fully illustrated book.

Membership affiliations include: Signature member of the Artists for Conservation, the Pastel Society of America, the Salmagundi Art Club, an elected member of the Audubon Artists, the Wellington Art Society and many others. Deborah says, “Looking at my paintings today, many people think they are photographs. I take it as a compliment since I’m a photorealistic painter. My quest has been exciting and rewarding”.

“Female – Unspecified” by Juan Erman Gonzales

Juan Antonio Gonzalez, better known as “Erman” (Cuba, 1956), is a mixed media artist whose theme driven, series based works are rooted in migration. Using utilitarian methods like wood-work, sewing and ceramics Erman creates original components for 2 and 3D collage, assemblage and installations long thought to echo and materialize remembrance, to converse about exile, displacement, up-rootness and transculture, with sub-contexts of family, gender and Afro-Caribbean folklore, from a Cuban-American vernacular. This dialogue is achieved with a very personal iconography: empty chairs and cups, ladders reaching heights and depths, wearer-less shoes, floating windows, the bifurcated but not barren landscape presented in a sub-reality where familial issues of home and homelands are questioned, challenged and when successful, resolved. He has taught art practices to children and adults living with disabilities and has been the guest lecturer at Edna Manley College in Jamaica, the National Gallery of the Bahamas, FIT in New York, Colorado State University and Lincoln Center in Ft. Collins, Colorado and most recently at Broward College in Davie, Florida in conjunction with his solo, traveling exhibition “Cortando, Cosiendo y Recordando,” a catalogued survey of works curated by Rosie Gordon-Wallace.

“Hollywood” by Juan Erman Gonzales

 

Erman’s works form part of many collections including the Miami Art Museum, Miami-Dade Public Library, Craig Robbin’s and Instituto Sacatar in Brazil where he was awarded an International Fellowship in 2006 culminating in a solo exhibition at ACBEU Gallery. He is presently engaged in a new series titled “I Am That, I Am” where using original stencils and drawing, he is experimenting with multiples, repetition and layering while analyzing names, adjectives and phraseology used by others when describing him.

 

 

 

 

ARMORY ART CENTER:

The mission of the Armory Art Center is to inspire the creation and experience of art. The Armory’s vision is to be the leading visual arts education and exhibition center of the Palm Beaches. Housed in an historic Art Deco building, the Armory provides art classes for students of all ages, exhibitions, art salons, lectures, and special events. Held in twelve state-of-the-art studios, nearly 100 courses are offered including ceramics, digital arts, drawing, glass fusing, jewelry, painting, printmaking, fibers, sculpture, and 20 exhibitions are hosted annually in four galleries.

For more information visit:

www.armoryart.org or call 561-832-1776 x33

ABOUT ART SALONS:

Our discussions cover the gamut of contemporary art themes, including conceptual, 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 network with other artists. Elle Schorr, a well known artist / photographer who spends much of her time at museums and art exhibits locally and internationally, has been facilitating the salons, hosted by the Armory Art Center, since 2012. All are welcome to join in these timely explorations of trends in contemporary art and individual artists’ work.
