Current Exhibitions

Julia Holmass: Watercolor
Area Artists Association
November 1 – November 30, 2015
NIPSCO Small Art Education Studio 
Opening Reception: November 6, 2015, 5-8 PM (CST)

“Painting allows me to slow down and observe my surroundings – to experience the play of light and color.  Unlike the process of taking photographs, painting connects me directly to what I see.  I’ve always made marks on surfaces; from my early crayon scribbles on walls through primary school paintings and high school doodles to my current, perhaps, more mature paintings.” – Julia Holmass

Julia Holmaas created her first oil paintings at age 10. After college, the National Park Service (NPS) employed her until retirement as Chief of Interpretation at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore in 2004. She began painting watercolor in 1992 while working as an Exhibit Curator at the NPS Design Center in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. There she was responsible for planning numerous educational exhibits for Park Service Visitor Centers.  Painting in both watercolor and oil Holmaas has won numerous awards for her work.  She is a member of the Area Artists Association, the Chesterton Art Center and the Southern Shore Art Association of Michigan City. She is active in the Duneland Plein Air Painters and teaches Beginning Watercolor at the Art Barn School of Art and Seminars for the Michigan City Art League.

Bernard Williams & Edra Soto

Bernard Williams: Hard Driving & Edra Soto:Tropicalamerican
October 3rd - January 9th
Hyndman Gallery
Opening Reception Oct 2nd 5-8pm (CDT)

Bernard Williams: Hard Driving features an installation that focuses on a life-size car sculpture, constructed from plywood. The car, titled: Scott Car is a tribute to NASCAR’s first Black driver, Wendell Scott. The 1977 movie Greased Lightning, was loosely based on the life of Wendell Scott. The sculpture and related objects frame American culture in relation to the automobile, unequal competition, and excessive consumption.

Edra Soto: Tropicalamerican features a series of flags and chairs made by applying traditional crafting techniques to untraditional formats. Tropicalamerican (flags) were made with a variety of tropical leaves collaged and translated into a digital format. This series approaches the patriotic art tradition that for centuries artists like Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns and David Hammons, among others, have followed with the intent of canonize events, aesthetics and American Culture.  Tropicalamerican (chairs) are plastic Monobloc chairs upholstered with beach towels. The tiger image on the towels animates the four-legged piece of furniture. Stalking them challenges their function and adds to their excess. Soto (b. Puerto Rico 1971) is a Chicago based artist. She attended The School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she obtained her Masters in Fine Arts in 2OOO. Immediately after, she attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She has exhibited nationally and internationally. Recent presentations include: Hyde Park Art Center, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago, Galeria Agustina Ferreyra in Puerto Rico and Field Projects in New York City.
