"Rooted" Gallery Exhibition Runs Through November 22, 2013

Artemis by Emily Budd
              Emily Budd's "Artemis 2"


Nature and environment as inspiration is a very prevalent theme in Contemporary Art, especially when it comes to sculpture, which has an inherently direct relationship to space and surroundings. This is true in the local sculpture scene, as well.

"Rooted" is an exhibition that will showcase Indianapolis sculptors' work in this theme.

The sculpture-only show will display how these artists address themes of nature and human interaction to landscape and environment, seeking to connect human activity within nature. Be it through the use of found objects, natural mediums or organic forms, or applying concepts that address nature's presence in contemporary life, place and local environment, artists are inspired by how we as humans relate to nature and use it/exist in it.

All the artists are Indianapolis-based in order to show what is going on in the field of sculpture locally; therefore the work is "Rooted" in our very own landscape of Midwestern existence.

Artists include Lesley Baker, Julie Ball, Emily Budd, Susanna Hoone, David Kleeman, Lauren Kussro, Cheryl Anne Lorance, and Kipp Normand.
