Looking for free things to do on Friday, June 4? Here are some suggestions:
- The exterior of the Domont Studio Gallery
"Twin Musings: Art and Poetry" Reception: Squeal! Poetry plus art? Yes, please! Artist Amy Kindred invited poets to submit works that would complement her paintings. The result is Twin Muses: Art and Poetry, which Kindred will sign while some of the poets, including Neil Cain, John Domont, Devon Ginn, and Barry Harris, give readings. The event takes place at Domont Studio Gallery (545 S. East Street) from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Call 317-685-9634 for more information.
"As I See Indiana": Painter T.K. Nelson is having a show at his gallery (6331 N. Keystone Avenue) that will feature photographs by Robert Clark and jewelry by Yelena Adelfinskaya. I’m looking forward to seeing Nelson’s abstracts in person; I especially like his figure studies. Catch a glimpse of his work before the show on his website. The reception will be from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., during which time wine and appetizers will be served. Contact Nelson at 317-490-0678 for details.
Underground: The Elusive Evolution of the HIV Epidemic: This multimedia exhibition will feature works by persons living with or affected by HIV. I've not experienced art like this before; I'm quite intrigued about what will be on display. "Let Us Not Forget," a film about HIV in Indiana, will be shown at 6:30 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. The show will take place at the Athenaeum Artspace (401 E. Michigan Street) from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Mass Ave Wine Shoppe will provide wine and food. Call 317-918-5253 with questions.
New Works: Tess Michalik, Alicia Obermeyer, Stuart Snoddy: The artists, including minimalist painter Michalik, will be showing their works at Healing Arts Indy (805 S. Meridian Street) from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. I've been in this space before; it's lovely with its high ceilings and blond hardwood floors. The exhibit will remain on display through June 30.
