Northwest Territory Art Guild, 316 Main will present in the front gallery a themed exhibit of artworks based on celestial bodies done by guild members in anticipation of the April eclipse.  The show will run through the end of April.  In the back gallery visitors can enjoy artworks by guild members that celebrate the advent of spring.

Regular gallery hours: Tue – Sat 11 am – 2 pm. Additional hours by appointment; contact the gallery via Facebook.

The Open Gallery, 329 Main will show The Dark of the Sun: Astrophotography by Chuck Reinhart during the months of March and April.

Photos of the eclipse will be featured in “The Dark of the Sun,” a new show at the Open Gallery. Chuck Reinhart’s photos of the 2017 total eclipse taken from Princeton, Kentucky, will show how the sun’s appearance changes dramatically from initial contact to totality. These 2017 photos will give Vincennes residents a chance to anticipate what to expect during this year’s solar eclipse. Related photos of the moon and sun will also be featured.

Reinhart has had two showings of his photos at the Open Gallery, and his photos are often on display at the Northwest Territory Art Guild. In 2022 his photo of the Milky Way earned first place recognition in the photography category of the Guild’s juried show.  Chuck’s photos have been shown on WTWO, WEHT, and WVUT-PBS. His work has been featured on the astronomy website EarthSky. He has also given talks discussing his photos at events sponsored by Vincennes Tourism and the Vincennes Camera Club.

Regular gallery hours: Tue – Sat 10 – 4:30 pm.

The Shircliff Gallery, First and Harrison Streets, will be showing In Blackest Shade, In Darkest Light, a traveling exhibition of seven Black American artists working in drawing, curated by Patrick Earl Hammie. Hammie states: The exhibition centers around drawing as a technology from which artists speculate, recover, and collect communal histories, manifesting stories of desired futures from the margins of imagination into the realities of the everyday… The artists in this exhibition revel in horror, Afro-futurism, magical realism, Ethno-gothic, fantasy, Black Quantum Futurism, utopias and dystopias, and superheroes. They draw from cultural aesthetics and philosophies of science and history to explore and improvise within set boundaries and beyond. Their work speculates toward un-fixing the physical, political, and social knowns and imagine otherwise how we will be and become. 

Regular gallery hours: weekdays 9 am – 6 pm; 812-888-4316

Gallery will be open until 6 pm First Friday March 1.

Opening Reception and Artists’ Talk: Friday, February 16, 12pm

VINCENNES, IN. – The Shircliff Gallery of Art at Vincennes University is proud to present In Blackest Shade, In Darkest Light, a traveling exhibition of seven Black American artists working in drawing.

Patrick Earl Hammie, Curator:

In Blackest Shade, In Darkest Light is an exhibition that centers around drawing as a technology from which artists speculate, recover, and collect communal histories, manifesting stories of desired futures from the margins of imagination into the realities of the everyday.

Drawing serves as an instant gateway for dreaming, recording, and sharing ideas. It moved from a mainly private practice to a form that asks questions as equally bold as other media. Today, artists utilize drawing as a method to hack into and build networks that engage across scholarship, art, and community.

The show’s title takes inspiration from DC’s Green Lantern Corps’ oath, “In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might, beware my power, Green Lantern’s light,” from which members of the fictional space guardians access magical strength and gather the will to challenge adversaries using their imagination.

The artists in this exhibition revel in horror, Afro-futurism, magical realism, Ethno-gothic, fantasy, Black Quantum Futurism, utopias and dystopias, and superheroes. They draw from cultural aesthetics and philosophies of science and history to explore and improvise within set boundaries and beyond. Their work speculates toward un-fixing the physical, political, and social knowns and imagine otherwise how we will be and become.
