The pretty, colorful Mosaic was a good precursor to what we would find inside
New Times Broward-Palm Beach Calendar Editor Mickie Centrone has the enviable job of knowing about every event that happens within the boundaries of the two counties, and then some. When she attends some of the finest events from a given week, we'll post the details of her travels here. On Saturday, she attended Art Rock at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach.

Art Rock transformed Armory Art Center into the art version of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory this past Saturday. Artwork was on the walls, on tables, on people, and in jars. It was in the form of jewelry, paintings, magnets, skateboards, and cupcakes. Put on by Stitch Rock's Amanda Linton, this event gave everybody the opportunity to strut out the door with artwork in hand (for instance, postcards sold for $2). The solid turnout and feedback "reassures that people want this and that makes me happy," Linton said after the event. But a subtler perk at Art Rock was found. You could also shop for your future tattoo artist. Meet some artists after the jump:

Helpful directions: The mosaic is no where near the entrance, but this sculpture is

Jason Page creates "Light Painting" photographs. The process went over my head but I do know there's no photo editing

Lea Vendetta, who also tattoos, desribes her paintings as having an underworld, dark atmosphere, as burlesque, and containing busty women
