Welcome Summer!

First Friday Art Walk June 7, 2024

Join friends at Art Space Vincennes, Open Gallery and Northwest Territory Art Guild Gallery for the First Friday Art Walk, June 7th, 5 – 8 pm. Enjoy the pop-up events and displays that will appear along Main Street between the galleries.

Art Space Vincennes LLC, 521 Main will open Metal, Meaning & Matter, Cast Iron and Assemblage Sculpture by Bert Gilbert. This Solsberry, Indiana sculptor is deeply involved with the medium of metal, it’s malleability, structural capabilities, durability and range of surface textures.  He uses recycled iron for casting, scrap and reclaimed steel for welded pieces and repurposed, salvaged building materials for mixed media works. While often using images and forms familiar to viewers, as an invitation for dialogue with his pieces, by modifying forms he tries to propose questions that will encourage consideration of the complexity and duality of all efforts and decisions.  He suggests the struggle to resolve such contradictions offers glimpses into greater mysteries.

In his recent work, Gilbert has been focusing on iron castings of packing materials as elements in his sculpture.  He states: “This detritus of our online consumer culture, with its soft corpulent forms, seems an apt metaphor for the empty opulence of consumerism and surely a bellwether for future archaeologists defining our culture.”

Gilbert earned his BA degree in sculpture and painting at Indiana University, Bloomington.  Since 2002, he has been an annual participant in the Solsberry, Indiana Sculpture Trails Summer Foundry Workshops and Traveling Foundry Pours.

Bob Kemp and friend will provide jazz music in front of the gallery.

Regular gallery hours Tue – Sat Noon – 5 pm


Northwest Territory Art Guild, 316 Main will present Images of Knox County, thematic artworks by Guild members.  Media will include paintings, drawings, and original prints including photography.  Knox County’s rich source of subjects may range from city streets, alleyways, homes, gardens, parks, to creeks and rivers, farm scenes, to the Rendezvous and historical architecture, all depending on what the artists choose to submit. Come and enjoy your hometown county seen through the eyes of the Guild.

Also on display in the “for sale” gallery will be spring and summer themed artworks, abstract works and a variety of high-quality craft items created by Guild members. 

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

The Open Gallery, 329 Main will continue Words & Illustrations: The Many Disguises of Suzy Q, an exhibition based on the book of that title written and illustrated by Fernando Lozano with IA collaboration.  This is a children’s book, infused with wisdom and charm that can be appreciated by all ages.  The lush illustrations are telling examples of what can be created through the combined efforts of human imagination and IA resources. The story centers around a young mouse, Suzie Q, and her quest to find friendship in a world that seems not just frightening, but dangerous. Come find out how she does it, and how the artist’s vision helps her on her journey to acceptance.

Irish music in the gallery by the Open Gallery players.
