Work of Two Seniors Leads to New Downtown Art Gallery
April 10, 2009
April 10, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — Thanks to the efforts of two DePauw University students, a new, not-for-profit contemporary art gallery will open in downtown Greencastle tomorrow night. Today's Banner-Graphic previews the opening of the Low Road Gallery, which is located in the lower level of 104 Washington Avenue, below Martin's Emporium.
"DePauw seniors Lukas Schooler and Julie Rooney decided to start a Greencastle gallery after they returned from studying abroad together at the Glasgow School of Art in Glasgow, Scotland," the newspaper notes. "Glasgow was peppered with art galleries, and there they saw firsthand how contemporary galleries provide an opportunity for local artists and art enthusiasts to actively participate in the larger art community. Schooler and Rooney think that Greencastle residents should be able to be involved in contemporary art without having to travel long distances."
Tomorrow's opening is set for 7 p.m. and "will feature the show 'Menagerie,' an exhibition of sculptures, videos, and digital art by Matt Kalasky and Julie Rooney." Kalasky is a 2008 DePauw graduate and fifth-year intern. There is no admission charge.
