Krempp exhibit opens FridayOctober 31, 2013
JASPER — The Krempp Gallery at the Jasper Arts Center will exhibit the work of award-winning oil painter Nancy Nichols-Pethick from Friday through Nov. 27.
Nichols-Pethick’s work is inspired by her fascination in paint’s ability to embody moments people have difficulty finding words to describe, moments such as when a story falls silent — when the “nothing” that seems to be happening has not yet resolved into “something” — and the subtle emotions and implications that attend such moments. Through painting and imagery of people and nature, the artist explores these themes.
As a professor of painting at Indiana State University, Nichols-Pethick uses her students to depict the transformations that young adults go through, and the periods of apparent dormancy that seem so necessary to the success of those transformations. The figures in the forest landscapes, in various states of sleeping and waking, are in the process of becoming. What they will be isn’t known, however, perhaps even to them.
A First Thursday artist’s reception will take place from to 5 to 8 p.m. next Thursday at the gallery.
Krempp Gallery, located in the Jasper Arts Center adjacent to Vincennes University Jasper Campus, is open from 5 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 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.
