Do you like this story?
Many of you may have wondered what has been keeping me so busy these past days or even weeks. Well, after a year and half in the planning, I am proud to present Material Presence, an exhibition of abstract art by emerging artists from as far away as Dusseldorf. I have been following these artists works for a while now and find them to be some of the most interesting artists working with abstraction today. The process of curating this exhibition has kept me busy and I do hope that the audience here in Indianapolis will come out, see the work and enjoy the work by these artists as much as I do.
Material Presence, features recent work by seven emerging artists each exploring issues concerning abstraction today. Through an emphasis on materials and process these artists explore the boundaries and possibilities of abstract art and the expanded definition of painting. The artists in this exhibition blur the perceived barriers between painting, sculpture, and installation through the potential of their materials. The artists in the exhibition include: Scott Grow (Indianapolis, IN), Michael Just (Dusseldorf, DEU), Joseph McSpadden (Lawrenceville, GA), Danielle Riede (Richmond, VA), Eric Sall (Brooklyn, NY), Christian Tedeschi, (Santa Monica, CA), Wendy White (Brooklyn, NY).OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7th, 5pm-8pm
Marsh Project Gallery,
Herron School of Art and Design

Indianapolis, IN 46202
The gallery is open daily from 10:00am to 6:00pm. Thursdays till 8pm or by appointment. Admission is free and public parking is available in the IUPUI garage west of Herron. The exhibition will be on view through September 29th.
I would like to thank each of the artists, Leo Koenig Inc., ATM Gallery, Irvine Contemporay, Big Car Gallery, and especially the Efroymson Fund, a CICF Fund. With out the help of these individuals and organizations, this show could not have happened. Thank You.
