“A Poem For The Sharpevilles One Year” by Anja Marais

 

 

Anja Marais is a South African sculptor and multi-disciplinary artist. She has completed residencies in Japan, Korea, Russia and Florida and completed solo and group shows in Asia, Europe and the US.  Anja’s website shares the following: “Hi. I’m Anja, a multi-disciplinary visual artist. My art is being exhibited in the national and international arena and collected by private entities and museums. In my art practice, I use history as a leitmotiv – mostly the lineage of the ancestral and the ecological – to create milieus where the fragile and weary voyager can be hallowed”.

ART SALONS offer stimulating conversations with other artists in a relaxed setting. As a springboard to each of our explorations, professional artists from South Florida are invited to present their work, talk about what influenced them, and examine the work of influential artists showing in museums and galleries. 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. They’re also an opportunity to explore the practical side of being an artist, of professional development and the sharing of useful resources.  Salons are facilitated by Elle Schorr.

“Saprotrophic Vivarium” by Amy Gross

 

 

Art Salons at the Armory have contributed to the understanding of contemporary art practices in South Florida since March, 2012. Presentations have been given by artists, writers, curators, gallerists, and collectors about their work, the work of well-known artists, and about professional artists’ development. The Armory Art Center is honoring the Art Salons with an exhibition this October, curated by Elle Schorr, founder and organizer of the Art Salons at the Armory.
