In South Florida, theres no shortage of blasé art shows, but who really wants to buy a painting that looks like its from a doctors office? Not us. Thank you, Amanda and J.R. Linton, for Art Rock, an art show and indie marketplace showcasing the work of local accomplished and up-and-coming artisans. With more than 50 vendors displaying their talents through an array of media and styles, its safe to say nobody will be leaving empty-handed. No need to worry about fussy purchasing or those silly red dots either; this is a you-want-it-you-got-it type of environment. In addition to all the great shoppable art and tons of raffle prizes, the first 100 people will receive a free swag bag, so get there early! Art Rock is from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday at the Armory Art Center (1700 Parker Ave., West Palm Beach ). Entry is $5 and free for children under 12. Visit artrockrocks.com.
