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

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.

In 2017, the Arts Council of Indianapolis partnered with the DeHaan Family Foundation to create the DeHaan Artist of Distinction Award for the purpose of honoring Indianapolis-based contemporary visual artists with grants of up to $10,000 each for aspirational projects.

This September, Gallery 924 presents a curated group  exhibition of the inaugural recipients: Philip Campbell, Shawn Causey, Nhat Tran, and Lauren Zoll. Each artist has pushed their work in new dynamic ways, embodying the goals of the program which include a high tolerance for risk and exploration.

Collectors' Night - Thursday, August 2, 5 pm - 8 pm

First Friday - Friday, August 3, 6 pm - 9 pm

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.

Collectors' Night - May 3, 5 pm - 8 pm
First Friday Art Tour - May 4, 6 pm - 9 pm

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.

Artists Process Social

When we experience art, we often times see work that has been edited, scrutinized, altered, and adjusted to bring us a finished piece ready for consumption. But what do we know about the artist's process?
