ARTBOX - Friday September 5th Opening Reception of THRESHOLD: Paintings by Andrew Winship.

ARTBOX would like to invite you to join us for the opening reception of THRESHOLD: Paintings by Andrew Winship. Our reception begins at 5:00 and continues to midnight. Party Crashers from will be attending the event.

Local Herron School of Art and Design professor Andrew Winship’s large scale oil paintings, which incorporate digital projected media, will be featured in our September show. With imagery using a multitude of mark-making styles and derived from such diverse sources as art history and popular culture, the work of Andrew Winship is a balance between romanticism and skepticism; rich in metaphor reflecting on indecision and helplessness; full of faith in humanity with humor referring to the gravity of life's transitions and driving forces that remain out of reach but always present and affecting our everyday. Although his work has been exhibited nationally and in museums and collections around the country, this is Andrew’s first solo exhibition in the Indianapolis area.

Additionally, for the duration of the THRESHOLD exhibit, Artbox is sponsoring and accepting donations for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Guys and Dolls Auction Gala ( This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Guys and Dolls Auction Gala which showcases Indianapolis's most dynamic bachelors and bachelorettes featuring fun and exciting date packages to be auctioned to the highest bidder, as well as live and silent auctions that include exotic trips, wine selection and spa treatments and much more. All proceeds benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Carrie St. Thomas and Tiffane Pappillion are two of this year's bachelorettes dedicated to raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Artbox is generously supporting their efforts by accepting donations at the gallery from September 5- September 25, 2008.

The Harrison Gallery will feature sculpture by Lori Miles and Indianapolis urban themed photography by Craig McCormick.

Across from the gallery, Wednesday night Chatterboxers, the Jesse Whitman Trio, perform from 8 to 9pm.

Throughout the building we will showcase work that celebrates the impact of Urban Times, a downtown newsletter which has played a major role in strengthening connections between neighborhood and community life downtown. In the gym, neighborhoods, cultural districts, and friends of both will promote their residential and commercial opportunities. Join the fun of living and working downtown!

Openings this Friday!

HUB: A Collaboration of Art and Space

September 5-October 4, 2008

Opening Reception Phase I: Friday, September 5, 7-9pm @ SoFA Gallery

Opening Reception Phase II: Friday, October 3, 6-10pm @ McCalla School, 10th and Indiana

HUB: A Collaboration of Art and Space is a unique, two-part exhibition project that will feature sculptural installations by Derek Parker, Jonathan Dankenbring, LaRinda Meinburg, and Rob Off. HUB is an investigation into the metamorphosis of the gallery experience. The exhibition centers around a docking module, which serves as a physical hub, connecting mobile containers/moving trucks filled with art, thus transforming them into temporary gallery spaces. All act together as a temporary exhibition experience that can be erected anywhere, moving from site to site. HUB Phase I is held in the traditional gallery setting at the SoFA Gallery, allowing the visitor to view the artwork in a traditional context. HUB Phase II invites the visitor to the McCalla School, at 10th and Indiana, to experience the transformation of the artwork within the HUB truck containers. Once the exhibition concludes it will be mobile and travel to other site-specific venues.

Vacation '08

September 5-October 4, 2008

Opening Reception: Friday, September 5, 7-9pm @ SoFA Gallery

Vacation '08 features fresh and new works by faculty and some invited guests in the School of Fine Arts at Indiana University. This exhibition will include paintings by Bonnie Sklarski , prints by Paul Brown, time-based work by Mariana Tres, and photographs by Jeffrey Wolin, among many others. Many of the works included will be experimental, unfinished, and in transition, giving visitors a chance to see what these artists have been up to over the summer. Vacation '08 will be the first time that much of this work has been exhibited, and is a great time to see it before it goes out to galleries and museums around the country and abroad.
