John Baeder Takes Wing on a Higher Road

November 12, 2016 - January 29, 2017
 
Widely considered to be one of the most important artists of the 20th century, John Baeder is best-known for his hyperrealist paintings that made the diner the subject of serious art books and historic preservation efforts. While Baeder was almost single-handedly responsible for the diner craze of the late 1970s through the 1990s, he has been and is much more than a “diner painter,” as his new exhibition at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art reveals.

Oakland, CA-based artist Brett Amory's unveils a bold new body of work and an installation. The installation will be built during the month of November with public welcome to watch him work. The idea that Amory will use as his seed for the installation is Fort Wayne’s past, present, and future. This idea may also run parallel to the nation as a whole.

Amory will also be unveiling a new body of oil paintings based the people and places in Fort Wayne.

Robert Kipniss: The Whispering Light

October 29, 2016 - January 22, 2017
 
This exhibition features recent work by veteran American artist Robert Kipniss, a painter and printmaker for over 60 years whose subjects often include austere limbs of trees; spare, modest houses with simple shapes, and shadowy interior scenes. Although his scenes hint at the presence of human life, the absence of figures speaks to his interest in the poetry of our surroundings and the grace inherent to the unspoken atmosphere.
