Upcoming Exhibitions

Invasive Species... The Art of Upcycling

 

Invasive Species... The Art of Upcycling
Aug. 2–Oct. 18, 2014
Hyndman Gallery
Opening Reception Aug. 1, 5-8 pm


A resurgence in the “ready-made” art practice made popular by Dada artists Duchamp and Man Ray, upcycling makes use of discarded materials and transforms them into beautiful objects without breaking down the material. Invasive Species: The Art of Upcycling will feature upcycle inspired artwork that crosses boundaries between environmentalism and art. Artwork by Michael Dinges, Victoria Fuller, Alan Emerson Hicks, Valerie Mann, Chris Silva, and Bryan Sperry.

Transformation

Transformation
by Jan Dean
Brincka-Cross & Northview Galleries
Aug. 2–Oct. 18, 2014
Opening Reception Aug. 1, 5-8 pm

An installation by Jan Dean, transforming Styrofoam packing.

“Jan Dean is a visual artist whose artworks explore the paradox and psychology found in material culture. The work draws from the meeting of Western culture and Eastern philosophies. Materials dominate the visual appearance of the work but sentience and the human experience are what it articulates.”

 

Aquatic Kaleidoscope

Aquatic Kaleidoscope
by Renee Robbins
Brincka-Cross & Northview Galleries
Aug. 2–Oct. 18, 2014
Opening Reception Aug. 1, 5-8 pm

Paintings that draw from natural phenomena and micro to macro relationships and pull together molecular, biological, aquatic, and celestial systems. Robbins paintings mix and juxtapose hybrid flora/fauna inside a space that simultaneously evokes the deep sea and the cosmos. Bringing together microscopic and telescopic viewpoints stimulates the process of painting to move fluidly between the real and imagined.

Aquatic Kaleidoscope

Minimalism: Images of California
by Richard Manalis

Area Artist Association
Small NIPSCO Art Education Studios
Opening Aug. 1, 2014, 5 - 8 PM (CDT)


During the spring of 2014, Richard Manalis, photographed three beaches in southern California, up-close. The photos were taken in  La Jolla Shores in La Jolla; Hendry's Beach in Santa Barbara, and El Capitan State Beach in Santa Barbara County.  Many of my images captured momentary scenes that were soon washed away by the waxing and waning of the ocean.  The sand, as a background, provides a minimalistic feeling to these photographs.

 

Theme and Variation

 

Theme and Variation
By Hal Higdon
NIPSCO Art Education Studios
September 5 – October 1, 2014

Just as Brahms channeled Handel and Rachmaninoff channeled Paganini, Hal Higdon uses images from comic art for inspiration. In this Theme and Variation exhibit of his art, Higdon displays original comic art from his collection beside newly created paintings of runners. Daredevil runs a marathon. Superman sprints. Archie and Veronica go jogging. A unique approach to art that is both Pop and Popular.
