Piers Secunda, Indianapolis and abroad

Piers Secunda's exhibit opened Friday, September 7th in our Indianapolis gallery. The exhibit,  "ISIS Bullet Hole Paintings", is a result of Piers' travels to war-ravaged parts of the world collecting moulds of the damage caused by ISIS bullets. Just last month, Piers attended an exhibition of his works in London at the home of the Iraqi ambassador. That exhibition – an effort towards peaceful relations through art – was the first joint project between the Kurdish Regional Government and the Iraqi Embassy to the UK, whose people had been engaged in armed conflict as recently as the past few months.

Long-Sharp Gallery hosts solo exhibit of Sam Gilliam prints in Conrad Indianapolis lobby

At least twice a year, Long-Sharp Gallery curates an exhibit of works by an artist of import in the lobby of Conrad Indianapolis - in the last few years, for example, some of those artists included British Pop artist David Spiller and surrealist master Joan Miro. The first lobby exhibit of 2018 will feature the works of 85-year old, MIssissippi-born artist Sam Gilliam. Gilliam is recognized as an original color field painter and is credited with redefining and expanding the Abstract Expressionism movement. The exhibit is presented as a result of the gallery's partnership with Gilliam's long-time printer, Tandem Press. The installation of nine of Gilliam's prints will take place mid-April and run through mid-June.

Jason Myers’ solo museum show, STATUS: fluid/dynamic, is on exhibit at the Polk Museum of Art through December 10, 2017

Jason Myers is a prolific multi-disciplinary American artist based in Logansport, Indiana. Myers graduated from Kansas City Art Institute where he received his bachelor’s and later earned his MFA from American University in Washington, D.C.

 

His artwork invites the use of such materials as steel, resin and computer generated prints. They are complex, layered and exquisitely executed. Forgoing the “typical trajectory” perhaps expected from modern-day artists -- a Brooklyn studio, numerous assistants – Myers instead opts for solitary path. The majority of the work he creates takes a year to complete from its conception. Myers’ determination and dedication to his art is captivating leaving lasting impressions on its viewers.

 

With works exhibited at art fairs across the United States and abroad, Myers’ acclaim has only grown in the past several years. In 2016, the artist's works were placed in the permanent collections of the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) and the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette.
