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.”

Jane Hart has over 35 years of professional experience in the international contemporary art field, active in NYC, L.A., London, South Florida and elsewhere. She has been engaged as a curator, gallerist, publisher of limited edition fine art works and art books, arts writer, and, last but not least, as a working artist.

An encore presentation related to this project was highlighted to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of Art Palm Beach at Palm Beach County Convention Center. A 224 page full color, hard cover book by Gean Moreno’s [NAME] Publications was produced to accompany the show, with texts by Erica Ando and Sandra Schulman. Among other awards and accolades, Ms. Hart was named Curator of the Year twice by the New Times.

 

 

 

Hart is also a working artist, known as TJ Ahearn, (an anagram of her name), making vibrant collages that have been exhibited and collected internationally. She will have a solo exhibition of her work at Design Sublime in Little River, Miami, opening on Friday, April 21. Hart attended the School of Visual Arts in New York as well as both the University of Miami BFA Program and Miami Dade Fine Arts Program.

 

 

From 2006 until 2015, she held the position of Curator of Exhibitions at The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, an acclaimed non-profit institution which focuses on contemporary visual art. During her tenure at the Center, Hart curated over 100 exhibitions, including an attendance record-breaking show with international sensation LEGO® artist Nathan Sawaya, drawing 13,000 visitors in 6 weeks. Hart also created the lecture series “Hot Topics”, twice given the John L. and James S. Knight Foundation Award, and numerous other special projects. Her 2015 curated exhibition of Wayne White’s art work won the Center’s first NEA grant for an exhibit.

 

 

Hart was founding Director of Muse [X] Editions, a ground breaking, digitally oriented fine arts publisher, the first of its kind in the U.S.. For several years she oversaw all artist projects, marketing, curation of exhibitions and international sales. Hart is also an independent curator and owner of long-standing venture “lemon sky: projects + editions”, a contemporary art business devoted to working with artists through exhibiting and promoting their work. She has worked with major artists on exhibits, projects, publications and editions, including Doug Aitken, John Baldessari, Wallace Berman (Estate), Uta Barth, Gregory Crewdson, Peter Halley, Alex Katz, Mike Kelley, Kienholz, Charles Long, Christian Marclay, Fabian Marcaccio, Catherine Opie, Diana Thater, and Andrea Zittel, among many others.

 

 

In December, 2016, Hart was the lead artist of #NowBeHere#3FL, a participatory photographic event held at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). This project was initiated by Los Angeles-based artist Kim Schoenstadt. #NowBeHere is staged city-to-city, encouraging female-identifying artists to appear en masse in a documentary photo. 305 South Florida artists participated in the photo. In 2017, Hart has completed numerous curatorial projects, including those at the Armory Art Center and The Box Gallery in West Palm Beach and Design Sublime and Under The Bridge in Miami.

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.

Elle Schorr reflected in work by Anish Kapoor at Art Miami

 

 

“We came, we looked, we each curated our own personal collection of favorite Miami Art Week / Art Basel / Art Fair works of art. Each of us was drawn to different locations and to different works. We found connections to the kinds of work we do, or inspirations for new directions, new techniques, new materials, new ideas. One thing is for sure – no one saw it all”… Terre Rybovich, Sandra Schulman and Elle Schorr are joining together to share the work that each found most meaningful.

 

 

ArmoryartsalonInstallation view

Installation View

 

Terre Rybovich has drawn all her life. After a career in social activism, she returned to charcoal and paper with a new way of working, drawing “backward”, removing charcoal from paper with her body. The initial imprints were so dense with stories that she let them guide the drawings’ completion. That openness, plus years of figure drawing, generated a new art practice of subtlety. Her new work often incorporates nature and embodies her view that separation is an illusion. She says, “Prizing our individuality, we too often overlook our interconnectedness. My activism forged an enduring commitment to this world. It also instilled a courageous drive that I’m now channeling into art-making. I’m a daughter of Tommie Rybovich, noted boat designer and builder, and an heir to his self-guided vision and ambition for the work. It has been gratifying to have my work in the Drawing Center’s slide registry in New York since 2004. ”

This year during Miami Art Week, Terre was an artist on a mission, looking at works on paper and galleries that seem like a good home for her work. Despite the traffic, she made it to Miami Project/Works on Paper, Pulse and Art Basel, and will share some of what she found.

This December, and through the end of January, Sandra is gallery manager for the largest of the 9 venues for “100 + Degrees In The Shade”, a definitive survey exhibition of South Florida Art curated by Jane Hart, with over 170 participants, which took place in Miami and Broward Counties. The venue she manages is at 3900 N Miami Avenue. Sandra also wrote one of the three texts for the full color, hardcover 220 page book of that exhibition. “Rumble”, a film she consulted on, is premiering at the Sundance Film Festival 2016, based on an exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian that she co-curated. She will share her experiences about the exhibition space she is managing, as well as other spaces for 100+ in the Shade and other Art Galleries and shows she found most interesting.

She recently curated “Artists of Art Salon: A Collective Dialogue”, which showed the work of 57 South Florida artists who have given presentations at Art Salons over the past three years. She stays in Miami every year for Art Basel, and this year decided to focus on respected South Florida artists who are showing their work, and the galleries, studios and special exhibition spaces where their work is being shown.
