"The Bald-Faced Truth"April 5 - May 31, 2013Exhibit opening reception - April 5, 6-8PMArtists' Talk: 7:00PM, April 5The Gallery on Pearl features two accomplished Indianapolis artists and arts faculty, Dee Schaad and Jim Viewegh, in its spring show entitled, “The Bald- Faced Truth.” The show will open on Friday, April 5 and continue through May 31. On opening night a special reception will be held from 6 to 8 PM including the Artists' Talk at 7 PM. Refreshments will be served.Dee Schaad: Whenever someone in our gallery begins to laugh heartily, we know they are looking at one of the hilarious figures created by Dee Schaad. His clay figures present fictional concepts (e.g., “the seven deadly sins”) mythical figures, historical people, current professions, and more – all with whimsy and satire. The figures all show the delightful features that a genius can provide.
Jim Viewegh: If Dee Schaad presents humor, Jim Vievegh offers the sublime. He presents both figurative work and landscape paintings with an accent on the role that light plays in our world. His consummate skill is revealed in the many layers of paint that are applied so thinly that brushstrokes become invisible. You will want to study his masterful artistry carefully for full appreciation.
These artists were chosen with the thought that their creations are synonymous with the Gallery on Pearl’s commitment to offer to the public the very best art from the region.
The Gallery on Pearl is located in the restored White House Centre in downtown New Albany, 222 Pearl Street.
