Johnny Burgin and Quiqué Gomez

It was wonderful to host two Blues Masters in Satch Art Space for an exceptional performance that will always be remembered and was enjoyed by all.  One special guest, documentary film maker Robert Mugge summed up the evening with this Facebook post.

Thanks to Johnny and Quiqué for sharing their art with everyone that gathered at Satch Art Space.

The exhibition that accompanied the performance was new work that was inspired by music.  This included a large painting made with acrylic and oils using text from the Johnny Burgin song, Love Me Like I Want It, from his Greetings from Greaseland album.

Satch Art Space Grand Opening! April 7, 2017

Satch Art SpaceFor two years, I have maintained a gallery of 120 square feet on the second floor of the Circle City Industrial Complex.  I’ve hosted and produced over one dozen exhibitions in my Satch Lost and Found Art Gallery and in other galleries within the Circle City Industrial Complex.

In April, I will be opening my new art space of 740 square feet on the main floor of the Circle City Industrial Complex.  To celebrate, I am hosting a reception and open house on April 7 (IDADA First Friday) from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.  I will be showing new work and Ron Kern will be showing a selection of photographs from the series, Singular Studies from Satch’s Studio.  Music will be a curated selection of jazz performed by legendary Indianapolis musicians, including Wes Montgomery, from vinyl LPs.  Also, I will be presenting the new work of abstract landscape painter, Dave Voelpel in the adjacent Stokol Gallery.

Satch Art Space will be hosting many exhibitions and music events in the new art space. For June’s First Friday, Satch will be hosting Chicago blues great Johnny Burgin for a rare solo performance.

The Facebook event page can be found by clicking here.

I’ve been working very hard on the space and I am excited about this venture.  I hope that you can attend the reception and open house celebrating the grand opening!

Big News!

paintingsatchartspaceThe big new is… I am opening an expanded gallery at the Circle City Industrial Complex.  The new gallery is named, Satch Art Space.  I am planning a series of exhibitions and music events for 2017.  The first big event is March First Friday which will present the exhibition, The History of Indianapolis Punk Rock!  The exhibition presents photographs, flyers and historical information from the Indianapolis punk rock scene in the late 1970s through the 1980s in Satch Art Space and the adjacent Stokol Gallery.  The exhibition’s opening night is First Friday, March 3.  Indianapolis band, Cheetah Priest, will perform a special show.  And, a display of historic punk records and ephemera will be shown by Indiana Music and Entertainment Museum.

Making a handmade flyer to promote a punk rock band and its show was an art unto itself.  Typically, the flyers were confined to an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper to accommodate a xerox machine, which was the printer used to make copies that were pasted and stapled up all over the city.  The flyers not only included the information for the show, but also put forward the image and branding of the bands and the vibe of the punk rock movement itself.  This exhibition sets forth the unique art of the punk rock flyer and the corresponding history of Indianapolis punk rock.

The exhibition in the Stokol Gallery will be open weekdays, 9 am to 5 pm, from March 3 through March 31, 2017.  The exhibition is sponsored by Satch Art Space and Irvington Vinyl.

NUVO Profile and Preview Article

Recently, visual arts writer, Dan Grossman, visited my studio to preview the work for Body Parts and to talk about my path to being an artist, as well as art in general.  We had a nice long talk and his visit resulted in an excellent piece in NUVO‘s June 1, 2016 issue.


Dan Grossman in my studio

I appreciated the opportunity to tell my story and share my art in depth with someone as perceptive and appreciative as Dan.  Indianapolis is fortunate to have a writer that is as dedicated and works as hard as Dan does covering our local scene.  It is easy to see that he truly cares about Indianapolis’ artists and their work by not only reading his features and reviews, but by regularly talking with him to find out what shows are happening, as well as gaining Dan’s insight into the art that is exhibited.  And, his enthusiasm always shows through when discussing art, music and life in general.  Big and huge thanks to Dan for the wonderful article. I truly appreciate it!

Here is a digital clipping of Dan’s article that is linked to above as well as here.
