Upcoming IU East exhibit features printmaker

Upcoming IU East exhibit features printmaker

Indiana University East will be showcasing “The Works of Kathy L. McGhee,” in The Gallery beginning January 26 through March 18.

“Indirectly through the use of stories and images, people can see and observe themselves in a new light. We have been exposed to fables, parables, myths, and stories with hidden meanings and depth all of our lives,” McGhee said. “This ability to assimilate ourselves into a story of image and to discover hidden meaning is something with which I have been experimenting for some time. The significance of this and what it means in regard to how we think, perceive ourselves, and how we interact with others is of great interest to me.”

Artist uses imagery to create a dialogue with viewers

john-payne-art-web.jpgThe work of Jon D. Payne is the upcoming art exhibit at Indiana University East. “Patterns/Process” will be on display in The Gallery beginning February 25 through March 28.

“My grid paintings incorporate imagery deduced from organic forms, like rocks and dried pieces of clay, and function as a spreadsheet of one-shot, individual paintings grouped together. Once the organic properties are placed within a geometric system, a dialogue of patterns, both symmetrical and asymmetrical, typify this reciprocal relationship,” Payne said.
