The Ideal Sketching Ground: Prints by the Artists of Brown County

April 20 - August 4, 2019
 
In the early 20th century artists from around the country made the journey to the small town of Nashville, Indiana by way of the newly connected Illinois Central Railroad. Through word of mouth and a growing number of paintings in group exhibition, interest in the hidden gem of Southern Indiana spread. There artists found camaraderie and an unspoiled, picturesque place for inspiration. Chicago/Wisconsin painter Adolph Shulz described the area as “the ideal sketching ground” with its rolling hills, creek beds, rustic cabins, and “soft, opalescent haze.”

Seen & Unseen: Photographs by Imogen Cunningham

June 15 - September 8, 2019
 
Seen & Unseen presents iconographic works alongside rediscovered images from this great American artist. It is the first exhibition tour of Cunningham's photographs in the United States in 20 years, giving new generations an in-depth view of her work.

Marlene Rose: Cultural Blueprints

June 1 - August 4, 2019
 
Marlene Rose is a sculptor who uses relatively new techniques that builds upon the ancient tradition of bronze casting. Each piece is hand cast from molten glass into a unique and modern work of art that resonates with references and allusions to ancient cultures and civilizations.

Tim Tate: The Persistence of Visions

May 18 - August 4, 2019
 
Glass and video sculptor Tim Tate takes a new approach to the common approaches to producing and displaying glass sculpture, incorporating new materials to transform the inherent physical principles of both glass and video. In this exhibition, Tate departs for a moment from a review of objects to create an immersive environment that focuses on the visions of the future from the perspective of Ophelia.
