“Color Forms of Our Universe” by Martha Kaplan


By Hand Gallery
http://www.byhandgallery.com

”The content of color paints our days and nights. We prefer certain colors and color combinations, Colors have dispositions indicative of regions, origins, harmonics.” The 32 pieces of fine contemporary art, created by Martha Kaplan, are from three different series. The ‘New Kachinas’ are graphite and colored pencils and are a leap of faith from the side of the mind that is new territory. ‘Large Lace Paperworks’ are mixed media drawings setting out to restructure the disparities of the burdens of the world and ‘Pastels’ are the bridge where conscious and unconscious space can meet.

Exhibit will run August 1 through September 27
Closed Sundays

This exhibit will examine different patterns and their purported meanings. The show and exhibit are on the bus route and FREE with IHQS wristband or hand stamp,during quilt show only. Runs through August 1.

Come see the Howe car, Monroe County’s first automobile, graciously on loan from the Mathers Museum of World Cultures. Runs through December 31.

About Jeanne McLeish:
Jeanne McLeish was born in Clinton, Indiana in 1951. Jeanne began painting in 1970. Working in both watercolor and oil, she creates images that reflect her deep love of nature as well as her fascination with color and light.

Her paintings have been included in numerous annual exhibitions including the Hoosier Salon, Indiana Heritage Arts, Watercolor Society of Indiana, Indiana Artists Club, Wabash Valley Exhibition, Realism Today, and the transparent Watercolor Society of America.

She often teaches outdoor workshops that focus on the challenges of plein air painting. During the summer of 2011, Jeanne served as the National Park Service’s artist in residence at the Indiana Dunes National Lake Shore Park (along with Mark Burkett).

She is a Signature Member of the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, a Cardinal Fellow of the Watercolor Society of America, and Jeanne is also a member of the Indiana Artists Club, the Hoosier Salon Patron’s Association, the Indiana Heritage Arts, and the Indiana Plein Air Painters Association.

About Dan Woodson:
Dan Woodson conceived and started the Indiana Plein Air Painters Association in 1998. Also that year, he conceived and was a part of the Painting Indiana Project. Since that time, he has worked with three other states to do similar projects. He founded the new Richmond Art Group in 2011.

His numerous awards and recognition include: Best Landscape, Best Impressionistic Landscape, Best Traditional Oil, and others from the Hoosier Salon; two Best of Shows, Award of Excellence, Memorial and Merit Awards, in addition to Purchase and Popular Awards from Indiana Heritage Arts; Best of Show, First Place, Memorial and Purchase Awards from the Richmond Arts Museum; two paintings placed in top 200 out of 1,760 entries from the National Art for the Parks; eight First Place Awards, two Second Place Awards, three Popular Awards from the T.C.

Dan’s artwork has been in galleries all over the United States in past years; he is still with Sigman’s Gallery of Fine Arts (Indianapolis, IN), and has been a member artist of the Brown County Art Guild since spring of 2013.

Artist’s Statement: I have never been interested in recording my awards. I have over one hundred ribbons and unless it is marked on the ribbon, I have no idea where I won most of them. I’m self-trained but have learned my craft from all Indiana artists and have juried shows in Indiana and Ohio.
