Dennis McNett: Legend of the Wolfbat

May 30 - August 23, 2015
 
Creatures from McNett’s Wolfbat woodblock series have been exhibited around the world and three-dimensional versions have even been featured in New Orleans parades and Barney’s department store windows in New York City. McNett’s highly imaginative works focus on creatures from Nordic mythology and are inspired in part by the 80s skateboarding and punk rock scene.

Invisible College

July 11 - September 27
 
Adrian Falkner, "Untitled (dummy dove masala) 2015"
Invisible College explores the aesthetics of a movement that has devised its own course; one that has been largely defined outside of institutional contexts. Moving away from the standard art education model that demands graduate school, an excess of critical rhetoric and an art world careerism, these artists, many of whom are self-taught, have sought their own inspiration and voice instead, drawing on everything from popular culture and social media platforms, to street art, murals and graffiti. This group exhibition is co-curated by Andrew and Shawn Hosner of Los Angeles’ Thinkspace Gallery, and Josef Zimmerman of the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. The exhibition will feature new and representative works by 46 artists belonging to the New Contemporary movement.

Chalk Walk 2015 saturday | 10:00 am

Chalk Walk entertains, engages, and educates the 22,000 viewers who flock to see the spectacle unfold. The event is based on an Italian tradition of street painting that dates to the 16th century, known as i madonnari (street painters). Using pastels, artists may choose to reproduce existing artworks or create their own in their designated square. Held in conjunction with the Three Rivers Festival, Chalk Walk is truly a community event and draws on the amazing talents of area, regional and national artists. Individuals and families with no training in art are especially encouraged to participate.
