Krempp exhibit features recycled itemsApril 1, 2013
From local sources
JASPER — The Krempp Gallery at the Jasper Arts Center will present the work of Evansville artists Jane Vickers and Amy Rich beginning Wednesday.
The artists’ work focuses on creating sculptures and jewelry from found objects, fabric, trash and recycled objects.
“I get really excited about finding a resource that is abundant. Vintage cutlery, blown tire retreads, bicycle inner tubes and flotsam from the recently flooded river are my current passions,” Vickers said.
The artists enjoy finding old, worn-out resources and giving them a new significance and consideration again.
“Today, we are surrounded by so many objects. We continually buy them, use them and discard them, and so often they enter our lives with little thought about the people who created them or the distances they have traveled to reach us,” Rich said.
Vickers has a bachelor’s degree in painting from the University of Southern Indiana and a master’s degree in fiber art and art history from Southern Illinois University. Rich holds a bachelor’s degree in studio art and English and a master’s degree in art education from the University of Cincinnati.
The artists will take part in the First Thursday Community Showcase at the gallery from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday. Mystique Winery will also be featured and SwallowTale will provide music beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The Krempp Gallery is open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, until 7 p.m. Thursdays and from noon to 3 p.m. Sundays. School groups, clubs and students are welcome. Admission is free.
For more information, call the arts center at 482-3070.
