Exhibits at the Indiana University Art Museum


IU Art Museum, 1133 E. 7th Street
http://www.artmuseum.iu.edu/iuam_home.php

Several new exhibits can be seen at the Indiana University Art Museum. The galleries are open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm, and Sunday, 12 pm to 5 pm.

Contemporary Explorations: Reviewing Nature in the 1980s
February 4‒May 19, 2013

Drawn from the museum’s collection of works by graduates of IU’s fine arts department (now the Hope School of Fine Arts), this installation examines the artists’ interpretations of the natural world. Reviewing Nature takes a look at the balance sought between structural composition and the role nature plays in co-defining the space we both share. This installation was organized by Emily Wood, graduate assistant for Western art after 1800 at the IU Art Museum.

New in the Galleries: Breaking the Gilded Ceiling, Women Artists of the Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries
March 5-August 25, 2013

This installation will feature women artists—some former artist’s models, some wives and mothers, and some trailblazers—who worked in a variety of media. Included will be work by photographers Anna Atkins, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Laura Adams Armer, as well as prints and drawings by Mary Cassatt, Suzanne Valadon, Gwen John, and Käthe Kollwitz.

Three Remarkable Women: Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Margaret Chinnery, and Félicité de Genlis
March 23-September 1, 2013

The IU Art Museum will premiere a focused exhibition featuring Vigée Le Brun’s Portrait of Mrs. Chinnery (1803) and selected materials from the Lilly library. The exhibition presents an unusually rich opportunity to use a single artwork as a lens for an interdisciplinary study of the history, politics, art, literature, and music of its time.

Exhibit: ‘Local Weather’ – Photographs by Joe Johnson, at Pictura Gallery

11:00 am to 07:00 pm
Pictura Gallery (122 W. 6th St.)
http://www.picturagallery.com/index.htm

Joe Johnson’s landscapes, in the series Local Weather, reveal a world that has been transformed by snow and ice. These compositions, though stark, portray a delicate and simple beauty that is particular to the midwest. The minimal tonal range provides a contemporary counterpoint to the tradition of black and white photography; the result is a collection of mesmerizing still imagery with unexpected grace.

Exhibit runs through May 25, Tuesday – Saturday, 11 am – 7 pm.
