Moe Marks: Artist House, A Retrospective

05:00 pm to 08:00 pm
The Lodge

Artist House is a retrospective featuring a selection of mixed-media artworks created over the past two decades by self-taught Hoosier artist, Moe Marks. On view at The Lodge, formerly Studio 101 on the square in Downtown Bloomington, this exhibition boasts over 30 works, mostly large format, created on wooden supports using media such as paint, fabric, metal, paper, plastic, and found objects.

The works, created between 1999 and 2019, reflect Marks’s interest in finding a nostalgic sympathy in using a range of formal qualities, symbols, and old materials. By combining and layering these various components, he elicits and presents something new and current.

Although a self-proclaimed recluse or outsider, Marks has held exhibitions in South Bend, IN and Asheville, NC. He is a three-time recipient of the “Best of Show” award at the annual Juried Regional Exhibition at the Midwest Museum of American Art in Elkhart, IN.

Artist’s House opens Friday, July 26, 2019 with a reception from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. and is on view through August 3rd. A second reception will be held in conjunction with Bloomington’s First Friday gallery walk on Friday, August 2nd from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. Contact Moe Marks for sales inquiries at 812-703-0156.

The Lodge is located at 101 E. 6th Street, Bloomington, IN. Please note for accessibility that there is a long staircase to access the gallery space. The exhibition and corresponding events are free and open to the public.

The Tucker Brothers Group was founded by brothers Joel and Nick Tucker in 2015 with the mission of creating thoughtful and positive instrumental music. Their album Writing Prompts was created with the mission of paying homage to the past jazz musicians hailing from Indianapolis. The compositions included on this recording often hint at a sound from the past, yet fully embrace the jazz culture of present day.

2001: A Space Odyssey

07:30 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater

An imposing black structure provides a connection between the past and the future in this adaptation of a short story by revered sci-fi author, Arthur C. Clarke. When Dr. Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and other astronauts are sent on a mysterious mission, their ship’s computer system, HAL, begins to display increasingly strange behavior, leading up to a tense showdown between man and machine that results in a mind-bending trek through space and time.

2001: A Space Odyssey, produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick, was nominated for four Academy Awards and won for Best Visual Effects. It is widely considered to be one of the most influential films ever made. In 1991, it was deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. In 2010, it was named the greatest film of all time by The Moving Arts Film Journal.
