IU East Student Showcase
Indiana University East and Purdue University College of Technology in Richmond students now have their work on display in the Meijer Artway through Friday, May 10. Students exhibiting work were in fine arts classes at IU East during the fall 2012 and spring 2013 semesters.
The graduate students are currently each pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics from the Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts at Indiana University in Bloomington. While the use of clay is a unifying element in this exhibition, each artist uniquely explores the diversity and exploration possible in the medium of ceramic.
The Indiana Artisan’s exhibit, “Indiana Artisan: Paintings and Drawings,” is on display in The Gallery, located in Whitewater Hall.

Award-winning local artist, India Cruse-Griffin, will create a community art piece in conjunction with the county’s Positive Place Initiative and Indiana University East’s “One Book, Many Voices” project to be unveiled in January 2013. This large piece will consist of three to four panels that can either stand alone or be combined to present a unified vision. Just like the community of Wayne County itself, the work will be comprised of individual pieces that while powerful on their own, are even more impactful when combined and functioning as a whole.
The Gallery at Indiana University East will host an exhibit by artist and teacher Anita Giddings, an explorer of between the known and the unknown in the natural world. “Free Fall” is on exhibit from August 27 to September 21.
Indiana University East will feature artist Ryan Logan in an upcoming exhibit to open soon in The Gallery. “Unplotted” will be on display from May 28 to July 6 in The Gallery, located in Whitewater Hall.
