Since you don’t always have the ability to get to Nickel Plate Arts gallery locations physically, we thought we’d bring our current works on display to you!
Let the arts awaken passions during these cold, dark winter months! Let our local artists inspire you with feelings of affection and romance through painting, pottery, and poetry. “Love, Lust, and Poetry” will be on display for the first two months of 2021, so make sure to awaken your desire for artistic inspiration! This exhibit will open to the public on January 13th and run through February 27th.
Alyssa Overton’s March showcase, “Explore: A Trip Around the World,” invites you to take a journey with Overton to discover new places, find exotic wildlife, soak in the beauty of nature, and see the world through an artist’s eyes. Using a wide variety of mediums from paint to pastels and pen and ink, this showcase is rife with color and life.
“I had to miss out on two trips due to the pandemic,” Alyssa explains, “so this exhibit is very much for me, as well as anyone else who yearns to travel but cannot.”
See Overton’s exhibit in person at the Stephenson House March 5-27 during regular business hours, or meet her in-person at her gallery reception on Saturday, March 6th from 5pm-8pm. You’ll need to sign up in advance right here.
From January through March, Sydney’s collection will be showcased in the Meyer Najem Gallery located on the second floor at 11787 Lantern Road in Fishers, Indiana. The show will be called “The Collected Works of Sydney McQuade otto” and is just that – an exhibition of her mysterious and evocative abstract expressionist works. Although her paintings follow no particular conventions, her work can be recognized by the soft melding of color. Texture, the use of light, and paintings that emanate emotion are all elements threaded throughout her body of work. “I create because I have no conscious choice. It is who I am. I am at my best when surrounded by my playthings doing what I love.” A reception will be announced in the near future.
From January through March, Dan’s collection will be showcased in the Hub & Spoke Design Center’s Nickel Plate Arts Gallery located on the first floor at 8100 E. 106th in Fishers, Indiana. The show will be called “New Works by Dan Howell” and will feature recent pieces that emphasize Dan’s interest in the contrast of natural images to geometric patterns derived from nature. A virtual reception will be announced soon.
From January through March, Stuart’s collection will be showcased on both floors of dining area of Four Day Ray Brewing located on the first floor at 11671 Lantern Road in Fishers, Indiana. The show will be called “Bouts…and Beyond.” “Each self-portrait depicts a different version of myself (who I am and who I want to be) wearing boxing gloves,” says Stuart. Other works include portraits that illustrate his experiences and relationships he has obtained over the past year. A reception date will be announced soon.
