April 6th: Pieces of Us: Mosaic Works by Sally Kinsey

Having dabbled in painting, drawing, ceramic, metal, glass and fiber art, Sally found mosaics to be the art form that would hold her interest as an artist. “It allows me to use all of my artistic interests together in a single art form. There are no limits in mosaics, and I believe this is why I have found it both intriguing as well as creatively satiating.” Sally May Kinsey is a member of both the Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA), and Contemporary Mosaic Artists (CMA), as well a...

February 2nd: Illuminated Stone: Relief Stone Carvings by Sidney Bolam

A relief stone-carver based in Brown County, Indiana, Sidney Bolam began her career as a painter and an illustrator. Though Indiana Limestone now stands in for paper, her imagination-inspiring works remain close to her roots in illustration. Using an array of tools and artistic techniques, Sidney meticulously and lovingly textures each piece. The resulting sculptures - simultaneously fantastical and earthy - are reminiscent of medieval illuminated manuscripts both visually and even etymologi...

September 1st: Ironography

Toy boats, wood carvings, and elaborate alarm systems to keep his sisters out of his bedroom, were his specialties. After receiving a BA in Sculpture and Painting from Indiana University in 1983 Bert allowed many years to pass artistically fallow while creating a family, home, and remodeling business. Invigorated by the amazing iron casting workshops at Sculpture...

July 7th: Quiet Observation

With an attraction to the natural world Mary Uthuppuru has had to develop a way to cope with the perceived unfairness of Mother Nature. It was tempting to listen to the turtle inside that encouraged her to close up in her shell and hide in the nearest book from things that were scary. As a child, she liked two things above most: reading and playing in the dirt. Over time, Mary discovered a love for uncovering the mysterious intricacies of human, plant, and animal behavior. It is now with mox...

June 2nd: Tipping the Sacred Cow

Recently Dee Schaad has concentrated on earthenware. The pieces are all one-of-a-kind, tongue in cheek, figurative pieces based on history, myth and current events. Many have a story to go with the piece. They are made of white earthenware, stained and detailed with colored englobes and glazes. They are then fired to 1850 F. They are again fired with metallic lusters. All are fired multiple times and some are fired as many as five times. These pieces take many hours to complete. Most o...

May 5th: Midwest Waters

The paintings of Dawn Adams always depict bodies of water–at times vast and broad across an entire horizontal plane and at times traveling circuitously and quietly through marsh reeds. Her imagery is deliberately fixated on water and its surrounds because in her time of crisis, when her teenage son died in an accident, she found some solace in the fluid materiality of water–that it shifted its shape and surface to adapt to its earthly container, that it reflected and refracted the light cast...
