2013 Exhibits at the Mathers Museum of World Cultures

09:00 am to 04:30 pm
Mathers Museum of World Cultures (416 N. Indiana Avenue)

The Mathers Museum of World Cultures presents a new exhibit for the year 2013, “In The Kitchen Around The World”, which will be on display in addition to the already-installed exhibits from 2012. This exhibit will run until November 15, 2013.

“In The Kitchen Around The World”: an exhibit that presents objects used in preparing food and food service from different areas of the world. It breaks down into two categories: what the viewer perceives as familiar, such as plates, cups, and dishes, and what is unfamiliar, such as a Peruvian corn toaster and an Ecuadorian grater. The goal of the exhibit is to look at what other cultures have come up with as solutions to help them in cooking or eating food, allowing the viewer to make comparisons to the solutions that are similar or dissimilar to their own.

Other exhibits include:

“Picturing Archaeology”: Described in their words and illustrated by their images, the research and fieldwork of 13 Indiana University archaeologists is presented in Picturing Archaeology at the Mathers Museum of World Cultures/Glenn Black Laboratory of Archaeology.

“Rhythms of the World”: a free audioguide tour of musical instruments from around the globe featured in exhibits throughout the museum. The audioguide includes narration and musical clips of the highlighted instruments. This exhibit will run until December 20.

“Thoughts, Things, and Theories…What Is Culture?”
Thoughts, Things, and Theories…What Is Culture? examines the nature of culture through the exploration of cultural traditions surrounding life stages and universal needs.This exhibit will run until December 20.

“From the Big Bang to the World Wide Web: The Origins of Everything”
This exhibit examines history on a large scale, through the exploration of cosmic, biological, and human origins. This exhibit will run until December 20.

“Treasures of the Mathers Museum”
Decades of collecting and curating will be featured in this exhibit, presented in conjunction with the institution’s 50th anniversary. This exhibit will run until December 20.

“Photos in Black and White: Margaret Bourke-White and the Dawn of Apartheid in South Africa”
In 1949, Margaret Bourke-White, one of the most famous photojournalists in America, travelled to South Africa on assignment for Life magazine. Some of her rarely-seen images from that period are featured in Photos in Black and White: Margaret Bourke-White and the Dawn of Apartheid in South Africa at the Mathers Museum of World Cultures. Curated by Alex Lichtenstein, Associate Professor of History at Indiana University, the exhibition offers a comprehensive look at Bourke-White’s photojournalistic portrayal of South Africa in 1949 and 1950. This exhibit will run until December 20.

“Melted Ash: Michiana Wood Fired Pottery”
This exhibit explores the methods used to produce hand-made, wood fired pottery, and features works from northern Indiana and southern Michigan. This exhibit will run until December 20.

Psychedelic Art Show at the Farmer House Museum

10:00 am
Farmer House Museum (529 N. College Ave.)

For our autumn feature the Farmer House Museum steps back in time and presents “Psychedelic Art.” In our Workroom Gallery we will exhibit striking examples of the work of major San Francisco rock and roll poster artists of the late 1960’s. The posters will be displayed with information about the artists, promoters and the bands they advertised. We will also take a look back at the student culture of the time. In a back room, we have created a special feature: a dark room with blacklight posters of the era. In the dining room we continue the psychedelic theme with a table setting designed by Peter Max.

Show runs until November. Museum closed Monday. See website for all hours and further details.

Exhibits at the IU Art Museum

10:00 am to 05:00 pm
IU Art Museum, 1133 E. 7th Street

Special Exhibition, “Art Interrupted: Advancing American Art and the Politics of Cultural Diplomacy”
Runs September 15-December 15
This exhibition reconstructs a 1946‒47 exhibition titled Advancing American Art, which featured over one hundred examples of stylistically diverse American art from the mid-1930s to the mid-1940s. Organized by the State Department as a form of cultural diplomacy, Advancing American Art traveled to venues in Latin America and Europe before political controversy in the United States led to its cancellation. Art Interrupted illuminates a fascinating historical moment when modern art was seen as a powerful tool for furthering democratic ideals around the world.

New in the Galleries: “Photographing Rosie the Riveter”
Runs October 1-January 26
The conscription of men into military service during WW II led to a demand for female workers in the factories supplying munitions and war supplies. Government photography projects, such as the Farm Security Administration (FSA), revamped their operations to support the efforts of the Office of War Information (OWI). This installation features propagandistic images of female assembly-line workers by Andreas Feininger, Alfred T. Palmer, and Howard Liberman. Organized by Maura Campbell-Balkits, a museum intern in the Department of Communications and Culture.

Exhibit: ‘Line, Angle, Fold’ by Patricia Coleman at El Norteno Gallery

11:00 am
El Norteno Gallery (206 N. Walnut St)

“Line, Angle, Fold” : an exhibition by Patricia C. Coleman of works on paper and botanically dyed fabric.

Periodically Patricia revisits techniques and practices of her early works which were primarily abstract and defined by her, as hard edge. Through years of instructing children in arts classes, including summer arts camp programming at the John Waldron Arts Center, she introduced youth to basic paper folding and pop-ups techniques. Through the years her love of paper from pulp to surface for various treatments has continued to hold fascination for her. This work is representative of her current interest of pushing her own boundaries by incorporating complex folds and cutting to paintings on paper and botanically dyed fabrics. Botanically dyed fabrics are ecologically sustainable plant-dye methods that make use of renewable plant materials with the least harm to dyer and the environment.

Exhibit is open during El Norteno restaurant hours. See website for all hours. Exhibit runs until October 3.

Exhibit: ‘Gama’ by Osamu James Nakagawa at Pictura Gallery

11:00 am to 07:00 pm
Pictura Gallery (122 W. 6th St.)

Osamu James Nakagawa’s series Gama puts the viewer into the interior of dark Okinawan caves where people took refuge during the war. He does not deliver his subject matter in flat, two-dimensional scenes. Rather, through the conscious construction of light, perspective, color, and selective focus, he “builds” his imagery so that each scene has three-dimensionality, tactility, and atmosphere. He composes disorienting perspectives where it is impossible to make sense of the space. This visual maze mirrors the unsettling and somber emotional landscape that one experiences while getting lost in the work.

Nakagawa often says that he is “painting with light.” Indeed, the manner in which he creates the color, shadow, and depth within his depictions of the caves produces an environment so moody and present it seems as if one can feel the air.

September 6 – October 26. Gallery is open Tuesday – Saturday, 11 am – 7 pm.

Artist Biographies:
Judith S. Lewis is an oil painter living in Indianapolis, Indiana. In 1996, Judith chose to revitalize her interest in painting by taking a portrait workshop at the Indianapolis Art Center. The following year she traveled to New Mexico to study with Master Artist, David Leffel. She was so taken by the dramatic effects of light and shadow in his paintings that she knew this would be the path she would take on her life-long pursuit.
After fine arts became her major focus, Judith began showing her work in juried exhibitions, winning many awards. In 2008, she was honored to receive the Master of Art Award at the Hoosier Salon ceremony in New Harmony. In 2010, she was awarded the prestigious IHA Silver Award. Her work appears in Mark Butterfield’s book, Hoosier Painters of the 21st Century. Judith is also named in Who’s Who in American Women, and Who’s Who in America.
Ms. Lewis has studied with Master Artists at the Indianapolis Art Center, Scottsdale Artist School (Arizona), and Fechin Institute (New Mexico). She has also studied abroad in Italy and Spain.
In addition to one-woman shows, Judith’s work has appeared in several group shows. Many of her works are held in private and public collections.
Judith is represented by Madison Art Gallery (Madison, IN) and the Brown County Art Guild where she has been an artist member since 2001.
A favorite quote:
“What could be more wonderful than the life of a painter? Beyond the usual necessities of life, we live out our days needing nothing more than a box of paints, some brushes, and something to paint on.” – Richard Schmid

Amid the harsh economic recession and escalating fears of nuclear fallout, Yukako and Saeko struggle against a host of social and psychological pressures that most others around them ignore. Through fluid hand-held camera work, the story takes on an intimate realism. In Japanese language with English subtitles. (HD Cam presentation)
