Local art by local schools is back at Art IN Hand Gallery. Every month we feature young and talented artists from local schools. This provides the students an opportunity to have their art work displayed in a professional gallery. February's featured school is Lebanon Middle School. We invite you to stop by and enjoy the work of these young students.
Two photos taken by Ken Rabbers were selected to be shown as part of the annual "Indiana, Naturally" photography exhibit at the Indianapolis International Airport. "Spin Cycle" earned the Best Adult Professional Award and the Nature Conservancy Award. "From the Inside-Fall Creek Gorge" was also selected to be displayed. Both will be exhibited through March 2017. "Spin Cycle" is on Concourse B next to The Popcorn Store, and "From the Inside-Fall Creek Gorge" is at the Ticket Hall North, near the elevators.
Chuck Bruce (Jewelry) will be at:
For the Love of Art at the South Bend Century Center on Saturday March 4 from 10am to 6pm
Indiana Artisan Marketplace, March 25-26 in the Exposition Hall of the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
Kentucky Crafted-The Marketplace in the Lexington Convention Center, April 22-23.
Chuck will also be teaching a toolmaking workshop at the Indianapolis Art Center, March 11-12, and an Independent Study Inlay 4 week class March 6 through April 16.
New Work at Art IN Hand
Chris Davis's raku pottery is always stunning. Here are two new pieces made with real feathers as they are fired onto the surface.
Diane Couch has a new piece called "Elements" - a mixed media wall piece of copper, wire mesh, vintage knobs.
Carrie Wild's latest painting is called "The Navigator". Research has shown that birds use the stars to guide their migrations. Indigo Buntings use the constellations within 35 degrees of the North Star. These include the Big and Little dippers, Draco (the dragon), Cepheus (the king), and Cassiopeia (the queen), all shown in her painting.
Judy DeGan is focusing on new pieces. These fun lidded jars will be making their way into the gallery in late February.
