Wabash College Art Exhibit Opening
Monday, September 12
Eric Dean Gallery, Fine Arts Center

Dirt & Flowers: and Other Things We Eat and Breathe, Charles A. Gick's poetic works of art confront and examine humanity's physical, intellectual, and emotional relationship with art, nature and science.

His paintings, photography, sculpture, video, and installation art are inspired by the phenomenological and ephemeral qualities found in the environment.

Exhibit continues thru Dec. 10. Further information:

Indiana Art Quilts opens September 13 with 19 contemporary quilts from the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA).

The quilts were created in response to Marie Webster's (1859-1956) ideals for simplicity, revealed materials and avoidance of ostentation.

Hoosier Marie Webster defied all expectations; an amateur quilt maker, her designs were published in Ladies Home Journal in 1911.

Her awareness and response to the art of her time, particularly the Arts and Crafts movement changed the quilt world forever.
