Shaping: inspired timber creations
Opening Reception June 7, 5:30pm to kick off First Friday in downtown Greencastle
Join us in the galleries as we celebrate several local Indiana artisans and their woodworking craft. Using one of the oldest manipulative materials, artisans in our own Putnam and surrounding counties breathe new life into wood through their functional and/or artistic creations. From chairs to tables to bowls to fine art, woodworking in our community takes many forms. Shaping offers a chance to share in showcasing these many talents.

Visit a museum today, and it’s likely that a major blockbuster exhibition of impressionist painting or perhaps documentary photographs will find the galleries crowded with visitors. Landscape, vis-à-vis observational artmaking, provides an accessible entry point for both casual and frequent museum goers. The subject matter is identifiable, relatable, and the many movements within the genre—including impressionism and hyperrealism—have withstood the test of time.

Repeat, Repeat: Gestures of Repetition in Video Art
Repeat, Repeat: Gestures of Repetition in Video Art emphasizes repetition as a creative strategy. Comprised of early video works through today, Repeat, Repeat asks viewers to analyze not only the repetitive audio-visual elements, but also the use of repetition—and the tension it creates—as an art form itself.
Repeat, Repeat features eight works drawn from the DePauw University Permanent Art Collection and the Video Data Bank. This exhibition was made possible by the Arthur E. Klauser Asian and World Community Collection Endowment.
