AWARD-WINNING INDIANA ARTISTS

News

MAY 2017 NEWSLETTER

IN/A Member Artists and Patrons,

It is an honor to serve as 2017-19 President of IN/A. Over the last three years, I have had the pleasure of getting to know many of our members and working with this fantastic board of hard working directors. As we celebrate our centennial year, I am mindful of IN/A’s legacy and the many talented leaders from our past. Traveling in the footsteps of such masters as Otto Stark, Carl Graf, Frederick Polley and Garo Antreasian is an awesome responsibility that I do not take lightly. I would especially like to thank 2015-17 President April Willy for being the best mentor anyone could have. I was fortunate to witness her tireless dedication to the many details of this organization. I also thank IN/A member artists and others for the monetary donations and volunteer contributions of labor and time that were made this year. They are deeply appreciated.

For those that do not know me, I am a 1978 graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington.  My degree is in Art Education. Over the years, I taught both elementary and high school art within the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, Monroe-Gregg Schools, and MSD Wayne Township on Indy’s Westside. I have a diverse art background, having experimented with many different 2d and 3d mediums including graphic design, photography, metal-smithing, ceramics, painting, and drawing. For the last nine years, I have concentrated on intaglio and relief block printmaking and have won both regional and national awards. I am a juried member of the Society of American Graphic Artists (SAGA), American Color Print Society (ACPS), and 67th Street Printmakers (Indianapolis). I have been a member of IN/A since 2014 and the IN/A Member Exhibition Chair since 2015. I currently maintain a printmaking studio and teach adult printmaking classes at Sugar Creek Art Center~ Thorntown, Indiana. Please introduce yourself at any of our upcoming exhibits! Those that know me realize very quickly that I love to “talk art”!

James W. Hubbard, 2017-2019 IN/A President

Sadly, we lost watercolorist Ted Englehart recently who was a member of Indiana Artists for many years. Our condolences go to his wife Dottie Shultz Englehart and his family who made a contribution to our endowment fund in his memory.

AUGUST 2016 NEWSLETTER

Board Meeting Marathon

On Sunday, August 14th ten members of the board met at Laurie Wright’s home in Columbus for an extended board meeting discussion. We had a hefty agenda to tackle with many issues to address.  Please read on for important details and changes to come.

 

Our number one priority was to form a fundraising committee comprised of board members and artist members. We plan to continue to award $20,000 in prize money annually, offer workshops, maintain an updated modern website, among other benefits. This obviously takes financial and human resources.  James Hubbard mainartery2008@gmail.com and Michael McAuley mlivingstonm@icloud.com have stepped up to the task, but they need help from a few individuals- please consider joining them. If you have a connection with and/or suggestion of a corporate sponsor (contact name included) please share- any help will be appreciated.

 

We will be implementing an Indiana Artists Professional Development Series- Social. Plans are underway for a framing workshop to be given by Laurie Wright at her framing studio in Columbus. This demonstration will be combined with a talk by Jerry Points about getting your art gallery ready. This is tentatively scheduled for late October and will be free to members. More info coming soon.

 

A great new advantage to being on the board will be the introduction of an Indiana Artists Board of Directors Annual Show. If you have considered joining the board, our next election will be in April, just in time to participate. The first show will be at French Bleu in the Carmel Arts & Design District and will be promoted heavily.

 

There will be a strong push to get exposure for the Indiana Artists 100th Anniversary in 2017. We have a new Facebook Group page for our members. If you are not already included please request to be in the group. We will be distributing ‘rack’ cards in different venues throughout the state for greater visibility and will continue to promote each of our exhibitions along with workshops and artist roundtable discussions twice a year.

 

The board agreed it is time for a new process for jurying in member applicants. In order to make it easier for artists to apply, we will offer jurying at each of the six board meetings.  Two jury sessions per year proved to be inconvenient for many professional artists interested in applying. Having a sponsor will no longer be necessary, but we still encourage our membership to actively seek out qualified artists and steer them to the website for information on how to apply.

 

Board meetings will be held on the first Tuesday of even months, at 10 am. Our next meeting will be at French Bleu Gallery in Carmel on October 4th. Please join us to hear about committees you may want to be on and also to observe the jurying process.
