First Friday Art Walk

December 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm

Join friends at three downtown galleries and Vincennes University’s Shircliff Gallery for the First Friday Art Walk, December 3.  Downtown galleries will be open from 5 – 8 pm.  Shircliff Gallery will have a closing event for their current exhibit from 6 – 7:35.

Art Space Vincennes LLC

Art Space Vincennes LLC, LLC 521 Main will offer a final chance to view Ellipsis…Ellipses: Painting by Tom Dimond. This South Carolina artist is showing mixed media works conceptually based on the ellipsis, punctuation of three dots standing for an omission in writing occurring without substantially changing content.  Layers of paint, photo transfers, and texture applications reverberate with energy and conflict, reflecting past and present-day turbulence.

Mask required for entry. The Gallery will be closed for the season after this First Friday.  Watch the ASV Facebook page for what will be happening in 2022.

Northwest Territory Art Guild

Northwest Territory Art Guild, 316 Main will have Christmas and winter-themed artworks and craft items on display and for sale.  There will also be a wall of flower-subject paintings and drawings. The gallery will be decorated for the holidays.  The gallery will close as usual for January and February.

Regular gallery hours: Tue – Sat 11 am – 2 pm.  Additional hours by appointment.

The Open Gallery

The Open Gallery 329 Main will continue A Room Full of Whimsy, gallery co-owner Mike Mullen’s Squeaky Toy Variations series, and ceramic works by Abby Peacock.  A few other surprises will be added.  In Mullen’s series, as in traditional still-life painting and photography, symbolism is conveyed through artful arrangement of a vast collection of old but still colorful plastic squeaky toys.  His work is unique, fun, and provocative.  Peacock explores ideas about communication, language, and social interaction in atmospherically fired porcelain with underglaze designs. She is currently pursuing her MFA at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville.  The First Friday Players will again provide rollicking good Irish music for visitors to enjoy.  The exhibition is family-friendly; however, guests will be requested to mask up.

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

Shircliff Gallery

The Shircliff Gallery, located at First and Harrison Streets, offers a final opportunity for seeing Naturally Synthetic, works by Elissa Cox Wenthe and Laura Gleissner.  Cox Wenthe is showing ceramic sculpture based on real and imagined landscape sources that exude energy, vitality, rawness, beauty or sublime decadence. She holds an MFA from Ohio University, Athens and lives, and works in Fayetteville, Iowa.  Laura Gleissner is showing oil paintings based on design elements at play in architectural structures. She investigates perception and visual distortion as her works evolve into ambiguous abstractions. Gleissner holds an MFA in Painting from Northern Illinois University and is currently Assistant Professor of Art at Upper Iowa University, Fayette.  Closing reception is Friday, December 3, 6 – 7:35 p.m.

Regular gallery hours: weekdays 9 am – 5 pm.

Art Space Vincennes and the Open Gallery will not be offering refreshments.  Viewers are reminded that all the galleries have open hours during the week, and the safety of seeing the work in small groups, rather than in a crowd, is a viable option.
