Shawn Causey and Mark Daniell have collaborated on multiple projects including two large scale pieces in downtown Indianapolis–one constructed and one painted, both carrying the central color theory themes which are the basis of their public work. Sweet Spot continues this color investigation as the artist team constructs their most immersive piece to date. They will fill Gallery 924 with approximately 3,000 multicolor nylon cords hanging from ceiling to floor, creating a unified composition that brings color rhythms and patterns into three dimensions.
Visitors will be encouraged to discover a myriad of perspectives created by the installation by moving around and throughout the piece itself. The viewer will see shimmering rhythmic patterns as cords at different depths of field seem to float past each other. Observing new color harmonies from every vantage point enables the viewer to find their own “sweet spot”–a unique experience of resonating color relationships.

Causey, an Arts Council of Indianapolis Creative Renewal Arts Fellow, received degrees in art and music from Herron School of Art and Design and Butler University respectively.

Gallery 924 presents new collaborative work by the artist team Quincy Owens and Luke Crawley. The pair first explored working together while Owens taught art and Crawley taught science at local high schools a number of years ago. Their mutual passion for the connections between art and science eventually brought them together in a public art partnership that has led to installations across the United States.
While their work is typically designed for large outdoor spaces, this new body of work was created for a more intimate gallery experience. Works in this exhibition will utilize allegory to engage the relationship between art and audience through installation, sculpture, sound, and light.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Quincy Owens, an Arts Council of Indianapolis Creative Renewal Arts Fellow, is a professional artist in Indianapolis who focuses on both 2D and 3D art, along with public installations.
Luke Crawley is an Indianapolis sound artist, fabricator, and concept developer who also teaches high school science and math.

TINY IV: A Really Big Show at Gallery 924 kicks off the holiday gift giving season with local art that is 6” x 6” x 6” or smaller, and prices ranging from $10 - $500. TINY is Gallery 924’s biggest show of the year and will feature over 80 artists and more than 300 pieces of TINY original artwork. TINY IV is the perfect opportunity to support local artists by sharing the gift of art that could inspire family and friends to begin their own collections. The artwork includes artists from past Gallery 924 exhibitions and other well-known Indianapolis artists. TINY IV opens on Friday, December 4, from 6 – 10 pm as part of the IDADA First Friday Art Tour.
During TINY, the pieces of art move beyond the usual wall space and floor stanchions to occupy all the nooks and crannies of Gallery 924. Works include paintings, sculptures, drawings, textiles, and more. Some of the work is simply miniature versions of the artist’s standard offerings, and some artists were inspired by the gallery’s layout to create site-specific installations.

Dooley Waller is an abstract painter whose graceful, organic paintings can be found in private and public collections all over Indiana. Her quintessential non-objective paintings are expressive and colorful, yet subtle and soothing at the same time. Her latest body of work continues to focus on the more formalist aspects of color, light, and movement. She paints through an intuitive process and the resulting work offers a sense of effortless beauty. Unquestionably, the artist possesses an innate ability to produce what seems instinctual and spontaneous, although each painting has been reworked multiple times. Her new work includes works on canvas and paper, and will result in her first solo exhibition in Indianapolis since 2008 at the former Ruschman Gallery.
