The Armory Art Center is not just a gallery; its an artists retreat, a sort of West Point for the creative. Last year, two world-renowned artists, Suzanne Scherer and Pavel Ouporov, joined Armory as the 2-D Artists in Residence and taught a class on painting with egg tempera one of the oldest methods in art and not to be confused with tempura, a Japanese style of frying. The couple have permanent woks er, make that works at MOMA and the Library of Congress. Their residency just ended at Armory, and now they and four other artists are showing the public what they and their students have been cooking up during their stay.
There are two exhibits: The 2010-2011 Artists in Residence Exhibition and the Armory Annual Student Show. They are both open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday. The resident artists gallery runs through May 13 and the student show through May 3 at the Armory Art Center (1700 Parker Ave., West Palm Beach). Admission is free. Call 561-832-1776, or visit armoryart.org.
