Adding to West Palm Beach’s growing arts and culture community, CityPlace’s "ASSEMBLAGE" is located on the first floor of Culture Lab, the former Macy’s storefront that has been turned into an immersive arts experience in partnership with New York City-based Culture Corps.

“ASSEMBLAGE: An Organically Grown Exhibition,” a yearlong visual art project, has added three new local artists to its exhibition.

The project was unveiled in the spring during CityPlace’s inaugural Art Affair in Culture Lab.

Amy Gross, Sarah Knouse and Phillip Estlund opened their exhibitions on July 26. Additional international artists will be added to the exhibit in the fall. The exhibit is set to end in December.

Amy Gross' “Silver Bees and Black and White Warblers”

Gross created the hand-embroidered and beaded fiber sculpture called “Silver Bees and Black and White Warblers,” which represents the relationship between bees and birds and environmental changes. 

Knouse’s “Leopard Lamp III” is a part of a series of works from her exploration of ornamentation and superficial grandeur. Knouse investigates the iconography of domestic designs that imply a specific brand aesthetic or social status.

Estlund’s “Untitled” is an assembled sculpture reflective of the present-day environmental and financial climate. The work is constructed from materials collected from demolition sites.
