First Friday Art Walk

July 7, 2023 @ 5:00 pm 8:00 pm

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.
