Autumn Dance

See it: Indianapolis International Airport, 7800 Col. H. Weir Cook Memorial Drive
Artist: Gretchen Katner

In basketball terminology, Gretchen Katner’s Autumn Dance represents a buzzer-beater. Her painting shows the last vestiges of blooms in a flower garden before an initial freeze arrives in October. “The playful lines and bright colors call to mind the raucous dance of summer as it tumbles into autumn and finally releases its color until spring,” Katner says. The Indianapolis-based artist hopes her work helps people appreciate the natural beauty “that so completely surrounds us, yet often eludes us in our everyday life.”
