Lesley Baker is best known for her contemporary ceramic sculpture featuring small hybrid animals and familiar forms layered with appropriated images of natural and cultural references. By using ceramics to represent preciousness, raw materials, and history, the various altered natural forms are meant to ask the viewer to look more closely at the world around them. The fauna and flora are the innocents represented in the work not quite understanding the changes that are happening to them and around them. Much like how we are presented information through mass media, the true message is not always obvious. There is always uncertainty as to whether the message is ultimately good or bad. In her first Gallery 924 solo exhibition, Baker will share new work related to her animal hybrids, decorative plate forms with text and decals, and new experimental sound works.

Baker is an associate professor of art at Herron School of Art + Design and a 2013 Arts Council of Indianapolis Creative Renewal Arts Fellow.

Clay sculptor Andrew Perry Davis looks for the absurd in the everyday. Inspired by his first job working in a flea market, his favorite flea market finds were ones that defied quick or easy interpretation. Artifacts and antique toys inspire many of the forms he sculpts in his art practice. Alongside ceramic vessels that reference an unusual mix of time periods and cultures, you will find more intimate sculptures that reference a more recent past in the form of well-worn plush dolls. Traveling through this alternate history you will find statues of animal gods, commemorative vessels, and petrified carnival prizes blending the familiar with the historical. Elements that at first seem to be contradictory are a prompt for the viewer to play with their own references and interpretations.

December 1, 2017 - January 5, 2018
Gallery hours: M-F 9am - 5pm, Thursdays 9am- 6pm

TINY VI: The Year of Vonnegut at Gallery 924​ ​includes hundreds of small pieces of original art​ ​created by over 100 central Indiana artists. Much of this year's TINY art is inspired by or based upon Indy's own Kurt Vonnegut.​ ​You will find art in all media, all styles, all 6​"​ x 6​"​ x​ ​6​" or smaller​ ​with prices ranging from $15 - $400. TINY is the perfect time for first-time art buyers to start a collection or for seasoned gallery goers to purchase holiday gifts and discover new artists.

This year marks the first ever themed TINY show. In celebration of the city-wide Year of Vonnegut, we asked artists to allow the life and work of Kurt Vonnegut Jr. to inspire their submissions this year. The resulting work has been incredible. Some artwork is an obvious reference to the theme and others are much more layered and nuanced. Whether you are a die hard Vonnegut fan or just an art lover, you will find something intriguing in this year's TINY exhibition.

Parking is available in the lot south of our building or along the street. 

Artwork pickup: If you purchased artwork and would like to pick it up before we close for the holiday break, you may stop by:
Wednesday, December 20 from 9am - 5pm
Thursday, December 21 from 9am - 6pm
Friday, December 22 from 9am - noon
Or you may pick up the work once the show closes January 8 - 12 from 9am - 5pm.

Ivy Tech Community College began its Fine Arts and Visual Communications program in 2006. What started as a few art appreciation classes quickly blossomed into a robust selection of courses including art history, design, sculpture, painting and drawing, printmaking, visual communication and more. The highlight of the program is the talented faculty of working studio artists taken directly from the Indianapolis arts community. Join us this month as we highlight and celebrate these working artists who help build our community through their own artwork as well as teaching the next generation of artists.

Exploring the gray area between consciousness and subconsciousness, Keith Hampton re-interprets the early 20th century practice of automatic drawing and adapts it to his flowing, organic, yet highly refined and controlled new work which he refers to as Automaticae. The work encompasses the artist’s own desire to explore a semi-conscious state while necessarily existing in a mindful wakefulness. The results offer layered intersections of lines, spacial relationships, and upended palettes that reference their automatic drawing roots, but finish somewhere much more direct and polished. Hampton utilized this process to create new work in the form of drawings, paintings, small ceramic sculpture, and large-scale installation to create an all encompassing new body of work.

For a look into the artist's process take a look at this video made by the artist. Learn more about Keith J. Hampton at his website itsallart.com
