‘World Blues: Shades of Indigo’

08:00 am to 05:00 pm
Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center, 122 S. Walnut St.

The 2013 Lotus World Music and Arts Festival’s special exhibit showcases indigo textiles from around the world — from creatively reconfigured blue jeans and other custom-made garments, to finely woven fabrics.

Indigo has been used across cultures for more than 9000 years, making its unique blue one of the earliest and most prevalent colors in cloth. The antique to mid-20th century cloth objects in this exhibit come from private collections in Bloomington, Nashville, and Indianapolis. Taken as a whole, these textiles — from China, Italy, Japan, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Sumatra, Peru, Germany, Iran, Guatemala, North America, and other countries — reflect indigo’s universality and reveal its practical and aesthetic uses.

When: September 6 – 28
Where: Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center (122 S. Walnut); Rosemary P. Miller, Treasurer’s, and Vault Galleries

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.
