During the months of September and October, The Open Gallery will welcome photographer Christopher Schneberger to exhibit his award-winning series titled, The Wanderers. This series takes the viewers on a twilight journey with young explorers that is at once contemplative, worrisome, dreamlike, and arresting.  Are they really exploring or are they lost?  Where do they want to go?  What do they hope to find?  What becomes of them?  Schneberger leaves us with this notion:  “This series is in some ways my own processing of being lost and finding my way, and gaining an appreciation of getting lost as a deliberate act.”   We hope you will come and take the journey for yourself.

Christopher Schneberger is an Assistant Professor of Art at Vincennes University and is director for the gallery at Shircliff Humanities Center.  Come welcome him to The Open Gallery this Friday, September 1 from 5 -8 p.m.  Light refreshments and live music will make it a festive evening.

Join friends at Art Space Vincennes, Open Gallery, and Northwest Territory Art Guild Gallery for the First Friday Art Walk, Friday, July 7, 5 – 8 pm.  All three galleries will be opening new shows.

Art Space Vincennes LLC, 521 Main will introduce the time the boy lived, figurative ceramic sculpture by Taehoon Kim.  Originally from Korea, Kim came to the US to study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he earned a second MFA degree in ceramics.  He now lives and works in Chicago.  His pieces have a playful demeanor, and show connections with Korean anime, primitive art and folk art.  They however also carry a deeper emotional message, reflecting the inner turmoil that can lie beneath a cheerful exterior.  Kim’s previous work as a painter led to the brilliant color that enlivens these figures.

Unframed but matted photographs by Carol Messer and Tom Bartholomew will also be present in the gallery print bins.

Regular gallery hours: Tue – Sat Noon – 5 pm and by appointment: 812-887-6145 

Northwest Territory Art Guild, 316 Main will open a new show of art by area artists, who have been invited to submit their works in an open call.  Guild president John DeCoursey stated, “The Guild put out a similar open call last summer, and the response was so positive they wanted to offer area creatives the opportunity once again.” Last year about 40 pieces of local, original art were submitted, done by artists of all ages, backgrounds, preferred mediums and skill levels. “We were thinking about the fact that there are a lot of artists in our area that haven’t had any kind of exposure,” DeCoursey said.  “This is a great way to help them show off their art and bring new people to us who have never been inside our gallery.”

Summer-themed 2 and 3-dimensional artworks by Guild members will also be shown in a variety of media, techniques, styles, and subject matter.

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

The Open Gallery, 329 Main will once again welcome artist Stephen Black, a Professor of Art and Design at Vincennes University, who will exhibit new work in July and August.  This latest body of work features a variety of collage pieces that explore shape, color and imaging using letter forms and words.  Black will be on hand at the opening to talk with patrons and guests about his work.

Rosary craftsman Sam Williams will also be present.  His beautiful and inspiring work, which will include new creations, can be seen at the entrance to the gallery.

Visitors will again enjoy rollicking good Irish music by The First Friday Players

Regular gallery hours: Tue – Sat 12 – 4:30 pm and by chance.

See what is being showcased in our downtown galleries during the “First Friday” Art Walk held each month! Join friends at Art Space Vincennes, Open Gallery, Northwest Territory Art Gallery, and Shircliff Gallery for the First Friday Art Walk, Friday, March 3.  Downtown galleries will be open 5 – 8 pm, Shircliff gallery closes at 6 pm.

Art Space Vincennes LLC, 521 Main will open Journey through Monotype Prints, Amanda Barrow and Elizabeth Busey.  Barrow, originally from Indiana but now working in East Hampton, Massachusetts and Busey, from Bloomington, Indiana met at a workshop in Brooklyn in January 2020. Both artists work non-objectively with a focus on the interaction of geometric shapes. Barrow’s pieces, influenced by her travels in India, offer ethereal organic abstractions inspired by nature, architecture and the human body. In contrast, Busey’s works are collage based, constructed with clean-edged tesserae of monotype prints, cyanotypes, vintage maps and gold leaf.  Busey also draws inspiration from travel, with references to topography and plant forms evoking feelings of memory, longing and connection.  Both artists will be present at the March opening.

Regular gallery hours: Tue – Sat Noon – 5 pm and by appointment: 812-887-6145 

Northwest Territory Art Guild, 316 Main will present Goose Pond Marsh Madness, featuring over fifty wildlife photos by Guild Member Steve LaRoche. These will include many of waterfowl and other wildlife from the Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area south of Linton.  Staff from Goose Pond have created a window display at the Guild depicting Goose Pond.  Spring themed artworks created by Guild members in a wide variety of styles and media will also be on display and for sale.

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

The Open Gallery, 329 Main will present a retrospective exhibition of works by John Baeder.  Michael Mullen, gallery co-director, has been collecting Baeder’s artworks over the span of a life-long friendship with the artist, and is now sharing this collection.  It offers the rare opportunity to witness the trajectory of this nationally recognized artist’s career, including his diner watercolors, photocollage pieces, and more recent vintage airplane paintings and matchbook paintings. Yale Professor of Art Vincent Scully wrote that it’s his emotional attachment to his subject matter that sets Baeder’s work apart from many of the other Photorealists: “John Baeder’s paintings seem to me to differ from most of those of his brilliant Magic-Realist contemporaries in that they are gentle, lyrical, and deeply in love with their subjects.”      

The First Friday Players will again provide rollicking good Irish music for visitors to enjoy. 

Regular gallery hours: Tue, Thu 12 – 5 pm, Sat 11 am – 4 pm and by chance.

812- 881-6475.

A reception for the artists will take place at the gallery on Thursday, March 2.  The exhibition will continue through March 10.
