Querin April 2019 Small

Collectors' Night: Thursday, April 4, 5 - 8 pm

First Friday: Friday, April 5, 6 - 9 pm

Conceptual fiber artist Marco Querin’s current artistic research and work is dominated by multiculturalism, or, the coexistence of distinct cultures within the same society. In recent years, the world’s populations have uprooted their lives and resettled in new countries in order to leave instability behind and break the cycle of a persecuted existence. Querin creates works that attempt to evaluate where the migration journey ceases: the place where an existing culture and the cultures of those seeking refuge could mix, but more often than not, do not. Querin’s visual analysis is done through the use of a variety of colorful fiber materials stretched and threaded over canvas in ways that demonstrate fragility, resistance, elasticity, and tension.

Collectors' Night: Thursday, November 1,  5 - 8 pm

Rituals permeate daily life. From the mundane, automatic rituals of preparing for the day, to the more challenging ones that require more thought, energy, and dedication. As a professor of Art at Wabash College, artist Gregory Huebner has been teaching Native American culture and ritual for twenty years. In Native American ritual, a shaman will call upon elements in the spirit world and make the unseen visible through expressions like song and dance to bring forth healing to an individual or society. Huebner approaches his paintings with a similar lens. He uses abstraction to create visualizations of his own personal rituals that have required his thoughtful, focused participation. These artistic offerings are meant to allow the viewer to reflect on physical, spiritual, and mental harmony in society as well as their own lives.

Anne
 McKenzie Nickolson currently focuses on creating small works embroidered on pieced grosgrain ribbon, with meditative stitching and imagery documenting various scenes in her life. Likewise, Richard Emery Nickolson, is working small, translating his drawings made from observations on site during their travels into meticulously crafted watercolor paintings. Both are inspired by patterns they are encountering together: historic buildings, Native American petroglyphs, European portraiture, and Amish quilts are just a few of their sources. They rarely exhibit together, so this is a particularly special opportunity to compare their complementary, yet very different, styles.

Throughout their marriage, the Nickolsons have worked in different media, but the art they create independently follows parallel tracks based on the way each experiences and interprets the world - both as individuals and through their shared history.

This month, Gallery 924 shares the work of the House Life Project (HLP), a community of artists and neighbors that was active on the Near Eastside between 2015 and 2017. Through artistic practice and community collaboration, the HLP used abandoned houses as sites for addressing neighborhood change and expanding the creative landscape in Indianapolis.

We’re Open, Come In is an inclusive and welcoming space that invites visitors to learn about the HLP, its methods, and its community. Through an array of artworks and interactive installations, the exhibition will spark conversations about neighborliness, housing inequity, and the ways in which art can and can’t facilitate social justice.
