Current Exhibits

June 23 – November 5, 2017

This exhibit is temporarily closed while we install new main floor exhibits.  It will reopen on September 22

This exhibit features women artists whose work is in the Art Museum’s permanent collection.  Spanning over 100 years, works by these women will show their creative versatility from 1890’s pottery by our founder, Laura Ann Fry to contemporary work by many living artists in our community, will be on display.  The ArtSmart: Indiana team has researched each artist and many of them will have their stories published on a panel beside their piece.  This exhibition celebrates all women through the eyes of artists.

Dennis Wischmeier: Changing Seasons

June 23 - September 24, 2017

Dennis Wischmeier began painting in High School.  He bought a few tubes of paint and some canvas boards and began a part of his life that is still as exciting and consuming today as it was back in those early years.  When Dennis sees something that really touches him, he wants to capture that moment, re-live it and share what I saw, or felt, with others.  His hope is that his work will stir something inside someone or be a reminder of a good memory that has been buried away.  He regularly exhibits at our 'Round the Fountain Art Fair and the Penrod Arts Fair in Indianapolis.

Dennis is a registered architect by profession and for his final thesis at the Ball State College of Architecture and Planning, in 1978, he designed a new facility on the Wabash River for the Lafayette Art Association (now the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette).  His plans are amazingly appropriate today and they will be exhibited with his paintings
