18 Jan Reception for “More Than Meets the Eye” exhibit by Jerry Mannell
From 06:00 PM until 9 p.m.
At Nickel Plate Arts
107 S. 8th St., Noblesville, IN 46060
Creativity has been the unifying backbone of Jerry Mannell’s professional career. A Fine Arts and English Literature major in college, Jerry combined his love of visual and written stories into a career as a graphic designer, working for an ad agency for a few years. When the agency closed, he, like so many creative professionals, forged out on his own and became a free-lancer, which gave him more time to dedicate to his personal creative pursuits by painting regularly in his studio.
He says that “art is about eye candy, just like music is ear candy.” He feels strongly that abstract pieces need to be beautiful, engaging and well-executed, so that even those of us without a background in art or who aren’t as comfortable deciphering visual language can be drawn in and find whimsy, inspiration and fun in the work. Then, we can find a deeper meaning that will prove that the piece is ‘more than meets the eye.’
Come explore Jerry’s “eye candy” during his showcase exhibit “More Than Meets the Eye” in the Stephenson House from January 7-29, 2022. Join us for Jerry’s reception event on Friday, January 21st from 6pm-9pm – it will be a great opportunity to escape Indiana’s dreary January weather and step into a tropical world all your own!
