Armerie 1913 by Alex Bieler

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, than several Erie artists will be providing a massive tribute for Armerie 1913. Fifty of the Erie area’s best artists will have their work on display at the Bayfront Gallery to help honor the 1913 International Exhibition of Modern Art, where works by famous creators such as Pablo Picasso, Henri Rousseau, and Henri Matisse were shown in a three-city demonstration which started in New York City's 69th Regiment Armory.

Even more, each of the 50 regional artists adopted an artist from the original show, so while one submittal could be inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s conceptual pieces, another could provide homage to George Braque’s work in Cubism. More than 100 years after the original Armory show, the art it displayed is still having a profound effect. Armerie 1913 dips back into history to appreciate the exhibitions impact while providing a new twist – or 50 – along the way. — Alex Bieler
