Upcoming Exhibitions

Laurel Izard: Goddesses and Aliens
Area Artists Association 
December 1 – December 30, 2015
NIPSCO Small Art Education Studio 
Opening Reception: December 4, 2015. 5-8 PM (CST)

Goddesses and Aliens is an exhibition of Laurel Izard’s recent collages of graceful goddesses and geometric alien characters.  Some of these pieces make a passing reference to the tarot, but for the most part they come from Laurel’s imaginative ramblings in her sketchbooks and on scraps of paper.  Formally these works balance texture, shapes and color using painted canvas, handmade paper and vintage text, and are influence by artwork from medieval woodcuts, comic art, and pulp science fiction.








Abstruse Daydreaming
Meredith Setser and Jay Zerbe
February 5th – April 9th, 2016
Hyndman Gallery
Opening Reception February 5th 5 - 8 PM (CST)

Meredith Setser is and printmaker and textile artist currently employed as an assistant professor of printmaking at the Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis. “Meredith’s installations utilize printed motifs that reference patterns found in urban infrastructure, agricultural design, and ecological systems applied to various substrates including handmade felt.   These substrates are then cut, sewn, layered, and folded into sculptural installations that resemble various ecosystems and landscape formations.  Process and materials are possibly the most important aspects of her work and are heavily intertwined with the concepts she has been exploring.  Meredith utilizes etching, a process that at its very core involves corrosion and decay, and printed layers of information to refer to the collective, stratified memory of a particular place.  The process of felt making, which employs heat, moisture, and aggressive friction, mirrors the geological phenomenon of the creation of earth strata.” 


Jay Zerbe is a contemporary abstract painter originally from Chicago but now resides in North West Indiana. “The contrast of chaos with order provides the structure for my work. The appearance of order breaks down under scrutiny, which mirrors my understanding of reality.” Jay’s emotions seek pattern and rationality, while his intellect sees mismatched parts and ambiguous systems. The core of his work revolves around juxtaposing these diverse structures and their uncertain references.




Interactive Works by Jonah Ortiz
February 5th-April 9th, 2016
Brincka-Cross & Block Galleries
Opening Reception February 5th 5 - 8 PM (CST)

Jonah Ortiz’s low brow sense of humor is prevalent in his work but the underlying theme is what he calls, “creative experiment in humanity.” The sculptures are designed to spark intrigue and crate dialogue among his audience. His artwork is a construct of a lifetime of experiences, summed up into thought provoking one-liners. Each piece delivers a narrative masked by jokes and glitter, but alluding to a social critique, and questioning how people perceive, and react to the norms of our society.
