Lorraine Ferrell at The Venue

5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The Venue Fine Art & Gifts

The Venue, as a special event, will host a talk by Lorraine Ferrell on Tuesday, March 29, at 5:30 p.m., where Lorraine will expand upon her explanation of the theory and practical creation of her unique jewelry. She will acquaint us with her creative history, explaining why fossils and which fossils. How does she acquire them and how does she transform them comfortably and naturally in rings, bracelets and necklaces, exposing their natural beauty?
Lorraine Ferrell hopes to reconnect with many of her former customers from the days of Fossil Rain and expose new clientele to her unique jewelry designs. “The metalwork I employ (in my jewelry) is purposely minimal, allowing the inherent beauty of each fossil, gemstone, and mineral to carry the overall design.” Having secured her art education in England and Indiana University, Lorraine brings her vast experience to each piece, capturing beauty while preserving a clear and powerful connection to the Earth.

We look forward to hosting you Tuesday!

Wounded Galaxies Presents: An Evening of Exquisite Corpses

07:00 pm to 11:00 pm
The Back Door

Join us for our first community art-making event as Wounded Galaxies Marches Toward 1968.

We invite you to attend An Evening of Exquisite Corpses, a surrealist game where participants create communal drawings of absurd bodies.

One collaborator draws the head, then folds over the paper to hide it from co-participants. The next person draws the torso, then folds the paper over. And the last person draws the legs. In the end, you unfold it to see your assembled body.

This event is part of the Back Door’s regular Drink & Draw night, which happens every Tuesday. There is a suggested donation of $1 per sheet of paper, but we’re happy to have all participants!

We’ll also have a music and spoken word playlist of your favorite dada, surrealist, and situationist sounds!

All proceeds from the evening will go toward “Wounded Galaxes: 1968,” a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the revolutionary arts & culture movements of 1968 in Paris, Prague, and beyond. “Wounded Galaxies: 1968” will be a multimedia festival and scholarly symposium in Bloomington, IN in February 2018.

About Michael Kuttner and the Kuttner Quartet

Born in Hungary, Michael Kuttner attended the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest in 1935, receiving the professor of music diploma in 1937 and the state artist diploma in 1938. During his professional career he was both a noted conductor and an acclaimed musician. Professor Kuttner studied conducting with the late Serge Koussevitzky at Tanglewood and went on to conduct the New York City Opera and the Trenton Opera Association. Perhaps he is best remembered for his illustrious career as a violinist, having performed with some of the most prestigious chamber music groups of his time. He started his American career as first violinist of the Pro Ideale Quartet, quartet-in-residence at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ, from 1938 til the early 1940s. Professor Kuttner was a member of the Gordon, Lener, Hungarian, and Berkshire Quartets. In 1972 he was appointed Professor of Music at Indiana University, where he shared his talents and enthusiasm with others. After Professor Kuttner’s death in 1975, Charles Webb, Dean of the School of Music, remembered him fondly. “We remember Michael as a conscientious and devoted teacher,” Webb said, “as a warm and concerned friend, and for his vibrant love of the art of music.”

The Michael Kuttner Music Education Fund was established through the estate of Professor Kuttner, and it is used to benefit highly talented students of stringed instruments. Scholarship awards are given annually to members of the Michael Kuttner String Quartet, consisting of two violinists, one violist, and one cellist who are selected by competition.
