    The Un-limited Figure: Creating an Afterlife for Retail Mannequins
    Artists Lorie Amick and LaDonna Vohar were honored and excited about the opportunity to have an exhibit at the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette. After the initial excitement subsided, the quandary of a theme for the show set in. After tossing around a number of ideas the solution presented itself at the Tippecanoe Mall. The Limited was going out of business and all of their mannequins were for sale. They decided that these mannequins were the perfect starting point.

    Southern Roots-Revisited: Paintings by Sandra Bridges
    Artist Sandra Bridges is primarily an oil painter and is from Chicago, Illinois. Sandra is known for creating emotionally charged paintings - be it her ability to capture the energy of a jazz performance or the strength of character on a subjects face. In a sense Sandra's work serves as a social bridge. Her powerful work stands as an exploration of the past, present and future, revealing that we are all linked in some way.

    Narratives: Works from the Permanent Collection
    Many of the nearly 1,400 works of art in the Art Museum’s permanent collection have a story to tell and in this exhibition, we will explore some of those works and interpret the stories that they hold. A narrative may reveal itself when the viewer looks closely at a work of art, or they may be uncovered when we learn about the artist’s personal story. Curator, Michael Crowthers and Collections Committee chair, Mona Berg, have chosen many of the works for this show, because they have rarely been exhibited. This will create an opportunity for visitors to become engaged, not only visually, but also through narrative interpretation.manent collection have a story to tell and in this exhibition, we will explore some of those works and interpret the stories that they hold.

    CONTINUING EXHIBITION: OCTOBER 5 - FEBRUARY 10, 2019
    Blank Slate: New Thoughts, works by Sara Vanderkleed

    "New Thoughts" is a new body of work has been generated since Sara left the Artists' Own co-operative gallery at 518 Main Street in Lafayette, Indiana. Sara's works reflect her emotional and spiritual approach to living life.

    Vanderkleed’s work has earned acclaim, reaching international and public collectors. She was awarded the 2001 Purchase Award at the Hoosier Salon Annual Exhibit show, the 2007 WVWS third place award, and the Best of Category in the 2010 Krasl Art Fair on the Bluff. As a part of the Celebration of Hoosier Women Artists’, Vanderkleed’s work was chosen to hang in the office of the Indiana Lt. Governor’s’ Office for two separate years.
