November Exhibits at the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center

09:00 am to 05:00 pm
Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center (122 S. Walnut St.)
http://www.ivytech.edu/bloomington/waldron/exhibits.html

The month of November brings a number of new exhibits to the Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center. William Fillmore sculpts figures that are extraordinarily life-like but served with a twist—you will be amazed, amused, and possibly even frightened. Whether on vessels, wall hangings, or large scale sculpture, every clay surface that Barry Barnes touches erupts in a profusion of color, texture, and pattern. Indianapolis artist Carol Myers offers a sheaf of what she calls “pencil prayers”, graphite meditations with watercolor accents, lightly layered in encaustic wax. And the Ivy Tech fine arts students will be presenting their fall semester projects.

All exhibits on display through December 1, during regular gallery hours: Monday through Friday, 9am – 7pm; Saturday 9am – 5pm.

Exhibit: ‘French Printmaking in the Seventeenth Century’

10:00 am to 05:00 pm
IU Art Museum (IU Campus, 1133 E. 7th St.)
http://tinyurl.com/9jrmkox

Artists working in Paris and Lorraine during the Baroque period developed distinctive styles—which focused on the vibrancy of the line—that differed markedly from their Italian and Dutch contemporaries. The two print kiosks in the early part of the gallery feature French works by Jacques Bellange, Claude Lorrain, Jacques Callot, and Claude Mellan, whose engraving is a tour de force of printmaking that creates the face of Christ using a single line.
