Gallery Hours
Tues-Sat 10:00-5:00 p.m.
Sun 12:00-5:00 p.m.

The Ancient Art of Peru
Raymond and Laura Wielgus Gallery of the Arts of Africa, the South Pacific, and the Americas, Focalpoint, third floor
Continuing through October 2, 2016

Before the arrival of the Spanish in 1532, Peru had seen the rise and fall of numerous cultures and artistic styles, not just those of the Inca Empire, for which it is so well known. Because these civilizations lacked written records, we gain our understanding of their histories and societies through their art and archaeology. Focusing primarily on ceramics from cultures before the time of the Inca, this installation encourages visitors to explore less familiar arts and traditions.

Old Hollywood Glam
Gallery of the Art of the Western World, Steinmetz Kellett Gallery, first floor
Continuing through December 31, 2016

This installation features “head shots” of leading ladies from Hollywood’s Golden Age (1920s-40s), including Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, Vivien Leigh, Gloria Swanson, and Anna May Wong, by photographers George Hurrell, Angus McBean, and Edward Steichen. Through the lens of professional portrait photographers, we can examine how stars, publicists, and movie moguls constructed an artificial image of beauty and promoted it as the glamorous, sexy standard for American women.
This installation is presented in conjunction with the 2016 Themester “Beauty.”

The Art of Presidential Politics
Gallery of the Art of the Western World, Steinmetz Kellett Gallery, first floor
Continuing through December 31, 2016

In conjunction with the 2016 presidential election, this installation features several twentieth-century artworks that reflect on the institution of the American presidency, including a satirical cartoon for a 1960 New Yorker cover by Saul Steinberg; Andy Warhol’s tragic Presidential Seal in memory of President John F. Kennedy; and a print by retired IU faculty member Rudy Pozzatti that was drastically altered following the Watergate scandal in the early 1970s.

Modern Sculptors in Indiana
Gallery of the Art of the Western World, Steinmetz Kellett Gallery, first floor
Continuing through March 12, 2017

Several modern sculptors of national and international prominence were born in Indiana, worked in the state, or came here to study. This installation features the work of artists Robert Laurent, David Smith, George Rickey, David Hayes, Alexander Calder, Isamu Noguchi, and (from October onwards) William Wiley, all of whom have Indiana connections. This installation is presented in conjunction with the Indiana State Bicentennial and has been endorsed as an official Bicentennial Legacy Project.

The Beauty of Indiana Folk Arts: Visiting Folk Artists Series–Sisters of the Cloth (quilters)

10:30 am to 04:00 pm
Mathers Museum of World Cultures

“Each one teach one” is the motto of the Sisters of the Cloth, an African-American quilting guild that meets monthly in Fort Wayne. Member Jacquei Seals explains, “We love to quilt, to share, to cook. I love the sisterhood of us.” While some women joined the group as expert quilters, and others as beginners, many strive to maintain their family quilting traditions through the guild. The Sisters of the Cloth will share their love of quilting in demonstrations and narrative stage discussions that will be free and open to the public, and are sponsored by Themester 2016: Beauty, an initiative of the IU College of Arts and Sciences.

Demonstrations: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., and 2:30 to 4 p.m.
Discussion: 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

When Art Heals–Communicating Heart Thru Collage Art , a Participatory Demonstration by Michelle Martin-Colman

05:30 pm to 07:00 pm
The Venue Fine Art & Gifts

Michelle Martin Colman, one of the principles at The Venue, has been a communications consultant for over 35 years, and concentrates on her initiative “When Art Heals” with a focus on interdisciplinary methods that affect and promote healthy mental attitudes and life-skills, through the arts.
As a part of Mental Health Month at The Venue, on Tuesday, September 27th, beginning at 5:30 p.m. The Venue will host a collage event led by Michelle. Collage (from the French: coller, “to glue”; French pronunciation: [kɔ.laːʒ]) is a technique of an art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.
Doing art — whether music, painting, writing, dance, whatever — can contribute immeasurably to psychological well-being. There are two dimensions to this. Art can be a healing force for people with mental disorders, including people with dementia, and art can contribute to psychological well-being of people regardless of whether they have a mental disorder. So bring your scissors, a glue stick and a few of your favorite magazines, printed letters, words, notices, memos anything goes, just so it means something to you, and experience the healing effect of creating art.
Through the arts people can find voices to express dimensions of self usually left in silence. And through art, people can shape their own identity. Art is not just self-expression; it is also self-creation.
Join us.

Dancing at Lughnasa

Dancing at Lughnasa
By Brian Friel
Directed by Dale McFadden

Set in the 1930’s at harvest time in Ireland’s County Donegal, the play introduces the five Mundy sisters through the reminiscences of Christina’s son, now grown. Though the sisters struggled with little money and few prospects, he remembers the hope they had and the joy they found in the random moments when the radio, which only worked intermittently, suddenly filled the room with music.

Performance dates include Sept. 23, 24, 27-30, 2016 at 7:30 pm and October 1 @ 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Thank you Partner Level Associate Producers Theatre Circle Member Judy Shettleroe and Mary & DL Mabbott for supporting this production.
