Jan 16 - March 1:  Push <-> Pull New works by two established Greater Lafayette artists will excite you with their contrasting styles and media.  Both of these professional artists continue to broaden their focus with new, yet familiar creative expression. Dan Annarino explores the great outdoors through his graphic designer eye.  His colorful and mysterious Indiana images defy traditional landscape painting and delight the viewer with his unique approach. Diana May creates three-dimensional clay sculpture using various forms combined to create whimsical and thoughtful objects.  For this exhibition Diana will create a body of new work, which plays on the rooftops and chimneys of Europe, inspired by her visit to England.  A woman of many talents, she often pulls in other materials, using steel and other elements to bring her intricate compositions to life.  This will be the first time Annarino and May have exhibited together.

  jan 15 - march 1: JAZZ TEMPLATES IN SILHOUETTE Robert Peppers is a Professor of Drawing and Painting, Ohio University.  He was previously the Assistant Director of Purdue’s Black Cultural Center. Professor Peppers is deeply inspired by the experience of listening to jazz, even to the extent of creating pictorial equivalents for specific musical work.  Mixed media works are direct responses to jazz from an intuitive perspective.  Beginning as doodles that he sketches, while listening to a jazz tune, his mixed-media work gradually evolves from Thought-Forms into Jazz Templates in Silhouette.
