Adam Collier Noel

Ad Lib 2011

The new works by Adam Collier Noel feature vintage nautical photographs and stereographs in combination with various collage and mark-making techniques. These are rare, one-of-a-kind snapshots that have been lost or tucked away for years. The artist has given the images new life and an enhanced narrative by superimposing them with text, ink, paint, gunpowder, graphite, epoxy and various other materials

The paintings of Susan Brewer will remain on exhibit through October. If you have some big walls that need a fresh look, be sure and take a look at Susans' expressive paintings.

The stunning bronze sculpture is by LA artist, Cindy Jackson.

Also on exhibit during the November Gallery Walk will be printmaking works by Sarojini and David Johnson. Both, accomplished printmakers and faculty members at Ball State University. Their innovative books incorporating their prints will also be on display. David and Sarojini both earned their MFAs in Printmaking at Miami University and have extensive exhibition records and awards.

Books and Journals

Eye On Art Gallery will feature several artists working in the area of handmade journals and books for the November Gallery Walk. The artists have a common tie to Ball State University and include professors in the English and Art Department as well as students and graduates.

Rai Peterson, Associate Professor of English at Ball State University. She has studied many small-press publishers and little magazines during the period, both their literary output and printing and binding methods. Recently, she has been exploring the use of vintage maps in the binding of travel journals. Laura Kuhlman, graduate of Ball State University, is currently a graduate student at the University of Iowa, where she is studying literature and is simultaneously a student at the Center for the Book. Laura makes intricate case-bound books from delicate papers with open spines. Karen Ruling, graduate of the English Department at Ball State University. Karen is the daughter of a costume designer, and her work shows unusual sartorial flair, both in choice of leathers and fabrics and elaborate closure systems using buttons and buckles. Maddy Witek, graduate of English and commercial printing departments at Ball State University. Her work concentrates on classically-bound case-books made with high-grade drawing papers and decorated paper-covered bindings. Additional works will be exhibited by David and Sarojni Johnson.

John Lennon/Imagine
Oil on Linen

This is the second painting I have done from this phoo of John shortly after he and Yoko moved to New York. The first one was sold at the Stutz theme show for the Beatles a few years ago.
