We will paint a small winter watercolor scene that will hopefully provide some peacefulness during this busy time of year! Paper, brushes, and paint are supplied, but feel free to bring your own if you prefer. For beginners, I like Prang watercolors (the 8 or 16 color set, NOT labeled “washable”–http://www.prang.com/art/paints/watercolors/oval-sets).

Alicia is a geologist who minored in art and enjoys the opportunity for creative time. She has two dachshunds and enjoys trying new food (especially desserts). Stationary and pens have been a lifelong weakness.

Barter items: nut butter, nuts for snacking, yarn, dachshund-themed items, baby food jars (minimum 5)

Tue, Dec 10, 2019 6:30 PM - Tue, Dec 10, 2019 8:30 PM @ Englewood Christian Church - Indianapolis

Author and speaker Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove will share from his latest book, “Revolution of Values, Reclaiming Faith for the Common Good,” followed by a discussion with Rev. Alicia Wilson Baker, whose story is featured in the book. Join us at Englewood Christian Church on December 10th to rediscover hope for faithful public witness that serves the common good. #RevolutionOfValues

About Revolution Of Values:
The religious Right taught America to misread the Bible. Christians have misused Scripture to consolidate power, stoke fears, and defend against enemies. But people who have been hurt by the attacks of Christian nationalism can help us rediscover God’s vision for faith in public life.

Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove explores how religious culture wars have misrepresented Christianity at the expense of the poor, and how listening to marginalized communities can help us hear God’s call to love and justice in the world. He highlights people on the frontlines of issues ranging from immigration policy and voting rights to women’s rights and environmental stewardship. Through these narratives, we encounter a recovery of values that upholds the dignity of all people. Join the revolution!

Are you an artist who wants to engage and help shape a community? Located on a block in both the Garfield Park and Bean Creek neighborhoods on the near southside of Indianapolis, the Artist and Public Life Residency (APLR) program is an innovative and experimental approach to supporting artists who use their talents and skills to help drive positive change in the community. Come today and learn more.

Click here to apply or go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PHZ6YFV

For this program, we view the label of artists to include creatives, makers, and designers. Fields include — and are not limited to — architecture, culinary art, curation, visual art, public art, furniture, fashion, craft, design, film and video, creative writing and journalism, performing arts, music, theater, placemaking, socially engaged art, etc.

The APLR — taking applications for resident artists now through December 23, 2019 — is a long-term, affordable and community-invested artist home ownership program as part of a community land trust approach.

Applicants will be notified if they moved on as semi-finalists by January 6. Finalists will be selected by mid January. Public information sessions will be at Tube Factory art space December 5th, 6 pm and December 7th, 11 am.

In partnership with Riley Area Development and supported by Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership (INHP), the APLR’s goal is to provide artists enjoyable and equitable home ownership while they work — in part — to collaborate with other neighbors and boost the culture, creativity, diversity, livability, safety, health, and economy of the local and greater community. This is a reboot of the program launched two years ago before pausing to work out various aspects of the program and partnership. So far three families have been placed into the homes.

Fri
Fri, Dec 06, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Dec 06, 2019 10:00 PM @ Harrison Center

It’s been several years since the phrase “Millennial Pink” first appeared and on Friday, December 6, from 6 to 10pm the Harrison Center asks the question, Do Millennials Still Like Pink? This year’s color-themed holiday group show features blushing work from dozens of local (Millennials and nonmillennial) artists in the Harrison Gallery and Gallery Annex.

Speck Gallery features Life in the Pond, work by Karen Holtzclaw. “I paint for the joy of self-expression and love of life by telling stories between creatures that emerge from my imagination to contract a story or stories within a seemingly serene pond environment. Although there may be several stories within a piece, the theme I want to convey and for the viewers to feel is the beauty and power of love and devotion.”

Context, work by Katie Pourcho will be featured in Hank & Dolly’s Gallery. Pourcho, an artist and art educator, explains that when viewing art in galleries and museums, there can be an indifference because of a disconnection from the context in which the work was created. Both the art she views and the art she creates have been enriched recently through travel and experiencing different cultures on a deeper level.

The INDIEana Handicraft Exchange Winter Show fills the gymnasium and Underground with their juried show of modern craft vendors just in time for holiday shopping.

Also in the Underground Gallery, Herron School of Art + Design students Laura Pendleton, Gem Williams and Nichole May will exhibit senior thesis work.

This season for the second year, the City Gallery is transformed into a holiday pop up shop filled with work from our own Harrison Center studio artists. The shop opens on First Friday, but is also open Monday through Friday from 9 to 5 throughout the month for holiday shoppers’ convenience.

In the sanctuary, the women of the Choral Artisans perform Benjamin Britten’s Ceremony of Carols, and Redeemer Presbyterian ensemble performs holiday music.

First Friday attendees can grab a complimentary coffee in the courtyard, then head around the building for the 5th Annual Holiday Window Tour. Artists have transformed the 22 ground level windows with winter-themed vignettes. The holiday windows can be viewed through January 6.

The Harrison Center is home to 30+ artists whose studios are open in December. This month is the final open studio night of 2019 and guests can wander the building and meet the makers who call the Harrison Center home.

December exhibits hang through December 27.

With support from: Huntington National Bank, the Arts Council of Indianapolis, the Indiana Arts Commission, Christel DeHaan Family Foundation, Allen Whitehill Clowes Foundation, the Indianapolis Foundation, Sun King Brewery, and Matinee Creative.

Fri, Dec 06, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Dec 06, 2019 10:00 PM @ Listen Hear

Navigate through Listen Hear from December 6th – January 17th as we welcome designer and artist Chad Eby.

Amidst an array of light and sound, Skärgården re-imagines cold war paranoia in the Stockholm archipelago in light and sound. The heart of this art installation is a self-organizing wireless mesh network that mirrors aspects of both the isolation and cooperation of an interconnected system of separate parts.

Chad Eby is a multidisciplinary artist, designer, teacher and researcher with particular interests in lighting, digital art, digital fabrication, people-center design and design history.
