Collectors’ Night is an unhurried alternative to the energetic, fast-paced First Friday experience. It is your opportunity to take your time and explore the artwork as it was meant to be experienced.
Meet the artists, ask questions, achieve a deeper understanding about them, their process, and their artwork. If you are a seasoned collector, you will enjoy the opportunity to connect with like-minded arts patrons and if you are just dipping your toes into the visual arts world, Collectors’ Night is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about some of our most talented Indianapolis-based artists. All are welcome.
About Andrew Perry Davis: Time of the Mouse:
Clay sculptor Andrew Perry Davis looks for the absurd in the everyday. Inspired by his first job working in a flea market, his favorite flea market finds were ones that defied quick or easy interpretation. Artifacts and antique toys inspire many of the forms he sculpts in his art practice. Alongside ceramic vessels that reference an unusual mix of time periods and cultures, you will find more intimate sculptures that reference a more recent past in the form of well-worn plush dolls. Traveling through this alternate history you will find statues of animal gods, commemorative vessels, and petrified carnival prizes blending the familiar with the historical. Elements that at first seem to be contradictory are a prompt for the viewer to play with their own references and interpretations.
Exhibition runs through April 28.
Collectors' Night in Indianapolis includes 10th West Gallery and Kime Contemporary.
