This group show features contemporary art created by 18 women who defy expectations.  Curator statements offer two different points of view from women in the art world: that of professional artist, Brenda Zappitell and that of Cornell Museum curator, Melanie Johanson.  Together, they have selected unique works with a female voice.  Artist commentaries will share perspective on expectations projected on to women in the art world. Artwork included in this exhibition has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide.

Artists of Art Salon: A Collective Dialogue will present the works of 57 artists, all of whom have been presenters over the last three years at Elle Schorr’s Art Salons. The works will fill three galleries at both the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach and the newly renovated, mural covered Armory Annex Gallery in Lake Worth, FL.

Paintings, sculptures, installations, and videos using a wide variety of mixed media will address a breadth of social, cultural, and aesthetic concerns. This exhibition features nationally and internationally recognized contemporary artists who are currently producing powerful, innovative work in the world of art.

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.
