“Color Forms of Our Universe” by Martha Kaplan

By Hand Gallery

”The content of color paints our days and nights. We prefer certain colors and color combinations, Colors have dispositions indicative of regions, origins, harmonics.” The 32 pieces of fine contemporary art, created by Martha Kaplan, are from three different series. The ‘New Kachinas’ are graphite and colored pencils and are a leap of faith from the side of the mind that is new territory. ‘Large Lace Paperworks’ are mixed media drawings setting out to restructure the disparities of the burdens of the world and ‘Pastels’ are the bridge where conscious and unconscious space can meet.

Exhibit will run August 1 through September 27
Closed Sundays

“The Taste of Seduction: Arousing Desire with Edible Aphrodisiacs”
Taste of Seduction examines the rich tradition of linking the enjoyment of food and drink with romance and sex, through a display of works of art and cultural artifacts from the Kinsey Institute. Curators combed the collection for depictions of food and beverages and selected more than 50 photographs, prints, paintings, ceramic and glass objects, and artifacts that relate to the consumption of food and beverages and its association with sexual desire, romantic love and seduction. This exhibition is part of the 2014 Themester: Eat, Drink, Think: Food from Art to Science.

Featured artists include Albert Arthur Allen, Herbert Ascherman, Lynn Bianchi, Gili Chen, Ian Cook, David Deaubrey, Anthony Droege, Beryl Fine, Gene Greger, Bill Haigwood, Naomi Harris, Danielle Kaltz, Maureen Kaveney, R. Leftwick, Henri Monnier, April Renae, Feodor Rojankovsky, Mark Sawrie, Sam Steward, Betsy Stirratt, and Marie Weichman.
The exhibit runs through December 19.

“Undress Me”
Undress Me presents a selection of playful vintage photographs of women in lingerie from the Kinsey Institute art collection paired with period underclothes such as corsets, petticoats, brassieres, drawers, robes, and other garments on loan from the Sage Collection at Indiana University. Ranging in date from the late 19th century through the 1920s, the clothing on display illustrates the dramatic shift in desired body shape from the hourglass, to the S-curve, to the straight boyish lines of the Roaring Twenties. Tight-fitting corsets were eventually replaced by simple brassieres, and the volume and number of undergarments worn by women dramatically diminished. While the historic undergarments on view served the functional purposes of shaping and protecting, their decorative elements reveal that undergarments, though private, were also meant to be seen and appreciated for their erotic possibilities.

Overseen by the Department of Apparel Merchandising and Interior Design, the Sage Collection serves as a resource for students, professionals, and the public. The Collection contains both a high-quality permanent museum collection intended for exhibition and research and a hands-on collection used in classroom instruction and fashion design studios. The Sage Collection was founded by Elizabeth Sage, the first professor of Clothing and Textiles at Indiana University. For more information, go to http://www.indiana.edu/~sagecoll or call 812-855-4627.
The exhibit runs through December 19.
