"Alms for Aunt Bea", 10" x 10", oil on wood, 2011
Two recent paintings of mine, each tweaked towards inclusion in the "Flower Show" at the Indy Indie Artist Colony. Opened tonight, April 1. The Herron Senior Photography show next door has some really good pieces.
The Harrison center has some recent work by Susan Hodgins in Gallery 2 which kickboxed butt. "Institutions" by Austin Dickson is in the main gallery. These photographs must be seen in person, they're paradoxically magical and urban-realismy and utopian. He also had a great piece in the Herron Photography show - his entire BFA portfolio on a ______? (some common electronic device with a 1 or 2 inch screen, the name of which escapes me now.....god, I'm so old). Kyle Ragsdale has amped up his imagery into an extreme levitating Rococo thing.....
Spring art has busted loose, at least in the Delaware-Penn corridor. I'll hit a couple more shows on Saturday.
*Update: Austin Dickson's piece, along with materials info (digital keychain....)
