Local potters, Richmond Art Club featured artists for upcoming exhibits at IU East

May 21st, 2008

Indiana University East will feature two local potters, Nate Wilson and David Nagy, in The Gallery. “David Nagy / Nate Wilson: Excellence in Clay” begins May 19 and continues through June 27. Members of the Richmond Art Club will have paintings and pottery on display in the Meijer Artway from May 26 to July 3.

Nate Wilson has been studying the finer nuances of the ceramic arts for the last six years, and producing at the highest level as a fine arts student at IU East. Wilson’s focus has recently been to refine his very stylized functional forms while exploring alternative surface treatments. He has shown and sold his work all over the Midwest and Great Britain.

David Nagy is a senior fine art major at Indiana University. Nagy has produced ceramics for five years and explores the various forms of classic and contemporary styles. Nagy has had many local shows.

The Meijer Artway exhibit, “Richmond Art Club,” will showcase several works by artists that are members of The Richmond Art Club. The 30-member group is a warm and friendly association of professional and amateur, art school educated and self-taught, young and old, two and three dimensional artists who meet on a regular basis to enjoy doing art together. The club is presently in the process of reinventing itself as an artist league dedicated to supporting one another in the doing of fine art.

Two Dimensional Artists:

Dorothy Banning

Sue Samko

Iris Ailes

Marilyn Hobbs

Kate Horn

Lois Gasell

Tom Butters

Diana Yount

An artists’ reception for Nagy and Wilson will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 21 in The Gallery. The reception for the Richmond Art Club will be announced at a later date.

Visitors are welcome to view the exhibit during gallery hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, call Ed Thornburg, gallery curator, at (765) 973-8605.
