I just purchased the iPhone 5 and am testing the camera panorama feature. A useful tool for showing the gallery exhibits. A little distorted, but a better feel for the space. Click on image for larger view.

Regardless of Explanation
Urushi on Clayboard
Urushi (the Japanese name for lacquer) is is a viscous fluid organic material that comes from the milky sap of several varieties of an Asian tree. Urushi products can last hundreds of years while retaining their glossiness, smoothness and elegance. Their colors do not fade with the impact of light and time, and amazingly, as the years go by and the pieces age, their colors keep getting deeper and become more luminous. Artists mix urushi with color pigments and various natural dyes. Other embedding materials can be used, such as eggshell, mother-of-pearl, plant fibers, sand, and gold and silver leaf.

Dance Away , Emotion size
14.5 " x 38.5"
I am so pleased to showcase the exciting works of Nhat Tran during the November Gallery Walk, November 10 and for the full month. Her most recent exhibition was at Yamawaki Gallery, Kyoto Gallery, and Kitakata City Museum of Art. Tran was commissioned by The Indianapolis Airport Authority for a large urushi lacquer mural, On the Tip of Our Wings, completed in September 2008 and inaugurated in October 2008, for the New Indianapolis Airport.
This was a commission work completed at the client's request. The couple saw Jeong Han's work in the gallery and wanted a larger work for their space. Jeong Han finished the new piece within a week and shipped directly to the client in Peoria.

Acrylic on Canvas
Another abstract work from Greg Huebner. I like the energy and movement through this work. It reminds me of the movement of the baton, from a conductor would have in reaching the allegro of a symphonic work.

Laurie Wright, Columbus, will be the featured artist for the Eye On Art Gallery October Gallery Walk. Laurie's unique color silk screen prints are in many corporate collections around the state. Her works are experiments in shape and color and never predictable. Colors complement each other as she works in bright and saturated primary colors .

I wanted to display a combination of art pieces that work well with classic design. Here I am showing the sculpture (Mic Mead) and painting (Jerry Points) with the classic Red Eames Lounge Chair.

Ryan Lane is a graduate of Wabash College and a very accomplished furniture maker. However, his paintings have always been a driving passion and a constant part of his creative pursuits. His three works will be introduced at the September Gallery Walk.
The works of Ryan Lane are a mystery of the mixed media process. Ryan, paints, sprays, scratches, glazes and a few guarded techniques to create a rich surface loaded with visual interest. His use of color contrasts are vibrant as the textures dance along the horizon.

Eye On Art Gallery will now be caring the exciting clay forms from potter, Steven Skinner. His studio in New Carlisle, Indiana is Black Tree Studio Pottery.
I love making pottery. Working with colored stoneware and inlays of porcelain, I create one-of-a-kind, sculpted pottery by combining wheel-throwing techniques, hand-building, and spontaneous mark-making.

This is the latest painting from UK painter Sam Dolman. His work continues to get better and his paintings have incredible attention to detail. He has truly captured the personality of the animals he paints.

Steve will be the featured artist for the September Gallery Walk.
When I discovered that my true passion was sculpture, I decided to relearn the medium using fractal form as a basis for the work. For me, sculpture provides two elements which I find to be very fulfilling in the creative process. I really enjoy what I term "blue collar" art; having to get down and dirty in the making of a piece of art. I also believe that additive sculpture is one of the truest forms of Gestalt, (the whole is greater than the sum of the parts).

Tania brings a fresh look to still life objects and her realistic approach. It is a painterly twist on photo realism, very fresh and alive. Her three works will be on display at Eye On Art during the September Gallery Walk.
Statement by the Artist
My influences were Jan Vermeer and Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin as I admired their attention to simple and modest subjects. My style is realistic, but with a contemporary touch. Light and shadows, the brightness if the floral and the softness of the texture are important elements in my paintings.
Roasting in the Sun
I am excited to add Tania Darashkevich to the gallery of artists here at Eye On Art Gallery. Tania was born in Ukraine and immigrated to Canada in 1998 and recently moved to Florida. She obtained a degree in psychology from State University in Leningrad Russia, and was a psychologist for 10 years. Tania is strongly influenced by the old Masters and the works of French master Watteau. Tania's style remains classic and realistic, a reflection of her illustrative training.

This is another beautiful painting by Vic Vicini, Michigan painter. Interesting response in the gallery with several men that identified the year and make of the car. Now, all I need is their credit card.

Jeanne Troxel is a Chicago artist that took up mosaic as a way to allow an abstract element into her imagery. Many of her stained glass mosaics images are born of a need to see beauty in every type of environment.

Jeanne Troxel is an artist with a great sense of design and color. She uses the medium of glass to provide an added dimension of light to her works.

Paper Play 12-107.2
Jeong Han Yun combines the combination of Abstract Expressionism with the gestural quality of Korean Literati painting. Yun states, "The papers I make are an intimate feel I have for the natural, non-toxic materials. The handmade papers provide endless inspirations. All of my feelings, thoughts, and movements are stored int the cellulose of the barks, as if the fibers were my genes and DNA, stored in the paper and cloned to my artworks."
Paper Play 12-107
One of two new works arriving at the gallery this week. Jeong Han Yun and his wife Choon Hyang Yun are South Korean artists now living in the US. They are instrumental in the development of the new techniques of traditional paper-making. Their fusion of Asian and Western paper making techniques result in rich, textural works of vibrant color. The material of Jeong and Choon's work is most often extracted from the bark and flowers of the ancient Southeast Asian Dak tree.
Acrylic on Canvas
This is the newest work from Greg Huebner. It is a dynamic image and has that wow factor. It would look great on a big blank wall in a home or business.
Friday, July 6, 2012
I wanted to show the tremendous scale Jeong Han Yun and Choon Hang Yun are achieving in their paper works. They are working on some smaller scale works for the gallery that I will be reviewing hopefully at the end of the month.

Signed 2 fantastic artists with the gallery. I saw their works last week in a Portland gallery and contacted them about showing in Eye On Art. Jeong took the Google 3D tour of the gallery and really liked the space. They have signed to exhibit here and I am looking forward to showing their magnificent paper works here.

I have 3 works in plexiglass by Steve Osborne. Fune to look at in the gallery, but even more enjoyable to have it in your environment.
An excellent work of art for your business. I can see it in your lobby now.

Eye On Art Gallery is delighted to exhibit a series of works by Indiana Artist, Arne Kvaalen. Arne is a retired Professor of Art at Purdue University and continues to explore the landscape
Landscape painting has always been his concern, recording the Western landscape prior to his move to Indiana. In recent years, he has turned to the land along the Wabash River, lush and verdant in contrast to his earlier Westorn works.

Eye On Art Gallery is delighted to show a series of works by April Willy, an Indiana artist. She has titled this series her "circular" style and describes the works as representative of modern impressionism.
These works are oil paintings in which she maintains the smoothness of the painting surface to feature subtle gradations and fluidity of line in the layers of circular ringlets.

Eye On Art is always adding new works to the creative collection of artists. For the April 14 Gallery Walk, 3 new pastel paintings on wood will be on display. These unique works are by Southern Illinois art faculty artist, Haley Farthing.

2 panels, 24"x16"
It is always interesting to meet artists that have researched the Eye On Art Gallery and see their works as a good match. This happened with Bob Cross as he visited the gallery a few months ago. We actually had a lot in common with his work as a printer at Tyler Press in NY and my background in printmaking and teaching. His works are quite different and very textural. It is like discovering a fantastic wall section from old ruins...and give meaning to his titles.

I just received two new paintings from painter, Rick Bennett. Rick's works have been very popular in the gallery with two earlier sales. His works are a pleasant reminder of vacation(s) with white sands, clear water, and colors that are never seen in the Midwest.
