Inferno at the Armory Art Center

The Armory Art Center is a school in West Palm Beach that offers many art classes: fiber arts, paintings, drawing, sculpture, ceramics. I'm currently taking an 8-week bookbinding class. I'll do a future post about that when the class ends. The Armory also hosts fun art nights. Last night I attended their show called "Inferno." They always do a show around Halloween that has a dark theme. In addition to the unveiling of their two new exhibits, "On the Map" and "Dark Art," they had 20 artists with booths selling their reasonably-priced art. Here's my good friend Laura Willems with her pieces.

The devilish lady from Tortuga Tileworks displayed her scarey pieces.


 And here is Pam Kwarchak, on the right, or PiqueStudios. Please go to her blog to see her work up close. It's very detailed and beautiful.

Although you can't tell here, the show was quite crowded. Artists showed their work in many of the studios, as well as outside in the courtyard. When the skies opened up and the rains came, they just quickly moved their tables indoors.

I loved this Frankenstein piece. It's simply painted on a big sheet of canvas. I'd love to see that at someone's Halloween party. I'd dare them to keep that up all year! Would it go well above your couch?

You can go to the Armory's website to see when their next big event is. They also do smaller openings for their exhibits, but these big parties are much more fun.
