Jun 7

Please join us as Aurora marks its 5th Anniversary of programming with the opening of exhibitions by Aaron R. Turner and Ian Lewandowski. Both artists will be present in the galleries for the evening, and we will celebrate with lots of good cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and music!

In the exhibition Black Alchemy: Resolve (Attempt #2), Aaron R. Turner re-presents cultural and familial images, exploring them as both subject matter and material. Using the studio as a space for construction, Turner employs cut paper, projected and natural light, black cloth, mirrors, paint, oil sticks, cellophane, and packaging materials for analog photography as building blocks for his images. In conjunction with the exhibition, Turner will lead a workshop on Van Dyke printing on June 8, 1-4pm.

In June 2023, artist Ian Lewandowski spent two weeks photographing in Indianapolis for an Aurora Project Residency. Lewandowski focused on making large-format portraits of queer Hoosiers during Indy Pride, and the exhibition Again, Again is a celebration of Indy Pride and Lewandowski’s incredibly productive residency.
