November 2015 First Friday Art Walk
Warm your Heart!
Celebrate the eve of the Holiday Season with a visit to your downtown Vincennes Art Galleries during the First Friday Art Walk, November 6 from 5 – 8 p.m.
Art Space Vincennes 521 Main will open Word as Image, an exhibition of prints, collages and book-inspired sculpture by Boston area artist Sandra Bowden. Bowden uses elements from Biblical texts, ancient Hebrew, and medieval illuminations to explore the use of written language as a focus of visual art composition. Artfully prepared refreshments by Barbara Edwards will again be served. The exhibition continues through December 12. The prices for the art and for the book by the same name are quite reasonable and would make special Christmas Gifts.
It will be “looking a lot like Christmas” at The Northwest Territory Art Guild 316 Main. Visitors to the gallery will find for sale new Fall and Winter themed artworks in a variety of styles and media, along with gift items such as jewelry, baskets, Christmas ornaments and more. During the month of November there will be a special Fall section of the gallery, and collages made by Nancy Ford’s studio group will also be displayed.
The Open Gallery 329 Main, will continue the exhibition All You Can Eat, ceramic sculpture by Emily Loehle, Professor of Ceramics in the Vincennes University Art Department. Loehle’s whimsical cast ceramic replicas of food and food products encourage viewers to examine their attitudes toward and participation in our culture of production and consumption. The Open Gallery musicians will again provide live Irish music. The gallery will also have unique handmade art cards, jewelry and photographs for sale for your one-of-a-kind gift ideas.
Come down to Main Street and enjoy inspiring artwork and festive refreshments at all three galleries during another Vincennes First Friday Art Walk!
