Growing up in a family of artists, I began painting at an early age. I am passionate about children’s literature and believe illustrations are a wonderful way to expose a child to fine art. In addition to maintaining an independent art studio in Butler Tarkington, I work as a commercial interior designer and have extensive experience with public space design.

Visual Arts: Graphic Arts, Painting
My name is Katherine Musser Berry, but my friends and family mostly all call me Kally. I have been sketching and messing with paints for as long as I can remember, but have been selling paintings and working with The Art Bank Gallery since the summer of 2009. I love to create. My paintings are almost always acrylic or oil on canvas, but occassionally I mess around with watercolors and mixed media.
I grew up in Fishers, started school at St. Mary of the Woods College, then moved downtown Indianapolis to attend school at IUPUI. I ended up graduating with a B.A. in Communication Studies, and a Minor in Psychology. My husband and I have renovated two houses on the Near-West side, and I really have a heart for the change and growth the Near-West side of Indianapolis is experiencing. Painting is a hobby for me, however, since I gave birth to my son, William, I have been able to devote a lot more time to painting.

In mid-life she returned to art school, obtaining a Diploma in Fine Arts from the Indianapolis Art Center, and began a second career as a fine artist. Her interest in life science and human physiology blends with life art; her lifelong interest in biology blends with natural subjects and a process orientation. For the past

My work is an exploration of the visual texts that exist in the conscious and unconscious mind-texts that speak to the personal experience of this artist, but connect too with the larger social, political, cultural milieu in which the personal is lived. I paint primarily figurative work with a strong conceptual sensibility in the traditional medium of oil on canvas, but my work is informed by the way current technologies like the Internet combine the audio/visual, written expression, commercial graphics, and even film to explore human experience.

Artists seem to be endowed with perceptual understandings that go beyond merely seeingthings. As an artist I want to offer the viewer more than a recording or a photographic likeness of a visual scene. I wish to expose the mysterious depths that lie beneath.
If I am successful, then my viewer can look into as well as look at my painting. Rather than just seeing an old man walking the hilly roads of Ireland, I want to present his story to the viewer. My use of colors, values, temperatures and edges allow my viewer a glimpse of what is beyond the obvious.
By looking into my painting, the viewer can vicariously experience the dedication and drudgery of the Irish peasant as he totes a bundle of hay up and down the cold damp hills, and possibly imagine what it feels like to be in this old man’s muddy Wellington boots as he takes his daily trod. The viewer not only sees the visual scene but also may smell the moist hay, feel the cold wind, and perhaps hear the soulful tune that resonates within.

My work deals with loss and memory. The work relates to the passing of my parents and how I cope with memories that I can not trust, but I simultaneously cherish.

Brown’s work focuses on the kinetics of the figure as slow motion events captured in time with blurs of the micro-second. His work explores the lines within the movement of multiple light defining “gray areas” that are, in fact, full of color.

Broyer’s art career began in a formalized elementary education art program in Evansville, IN. In addition, throughout her early learning and primary education, Marie was offered participation in specialty art programs within the public-school systems and the local community. Nearing the end of high school, she chose to finish her curriculum at the inaugural charter “Signature School.”
Furthermore, with the availability of this new artistic program, she focused her studies on contemporary art and editorial content. Most of all, Broyer won numerous awards for editorial illustration and content. In addition, was granted the opportunity as a high school student to participate in the juried Oakland City College (now Oakland City University) Art Exhibit. Thus, she participated in her first exhibit and at the age of seventeen and awarded a college level honorable mention.
During this time, The University of Southern Indiana (USI) School of Liberal Arts Board of Directors selected (Stonestreet) Broyer as a recipient for a full liberal arts scholarship. While at USI, she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Liberal Arts majoring in Advertising and Public Relations and focused on fine arts and marketing. Then, she studied under the artist in residence, Ms. Judy Chicago, in New Harmony, IN and traveled the country. Primarily, she studied the artists of the modern and impressionistic movement.
Most of all, Broyer found herself inspired by the Impressionist and Fauvist movements. “In essence the movement is a realist perspective through the eyes of the artist, not a photograph.” Furthermore, she seized those concepts and built her own style through creating layers of texture, line and color.
Now, she applies her formal training through working in commercial art, digital marketing communications and as an educator teaching adult and youth art classes in her country-side studio. In addition, she continues to learn and expand her knowledge base to further enhance the artist community.
In conclusion, Marie currently resides in Central Indiana working in the fine art and the marketing communications industry. For over two decades, she continues to grow as a professional fine artist and individual. Broyer’s representation spans regional museums, private shows, public exhibitions and juried fairs. Contributing the donation of time and art to public service initiatives, she adds her flair of unique business initiatives and an artistic perspective to the local community.

Artist StatementMy aim as an artist is to explore.At times, I allow chance (automatism) to play a major roll in my creation.I am inspired by dreams and fleeting ideas,strange characters and ambiguous emotions.Transformation and the idea of transience are common themes in my work.I grasp onto those things which have no concrete title,and images that fall through the cracks of direct understanding.At times there will be beauty and abstraction, humor, and darkness.Faces accompany emotions, figures follow shapes,and organic forms inspire metaphor.I often give life to shapes or organic formsby inserting a human element.When I am in the studio, I seek new ideas.I work in mixed media. I search for and collect objectsand materials to use in my work.I play with textures and colors.I also use digital tools to create remixes of the art I create physically.I always carry a sketchbook that I work in daily.My driving force is to carve my own winding path.I can only hope that others may follow along and discover with wonderment,the unexpected things I uncover.

My name is Deidre Bush. I am a Visual Artist based out of Indianapolis, IN.
Before moving to Indianapolis, I studied Studio Art atthe University of Saint Francis in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
My work is inspired by nature, mythology, and the human condition.
Drawing comparisons between the delicate balance of nature versus nurture and human versus creature is a common theme in much of her work. She explores how past experiences impact future outcomes by creating an alternate universe where she manifests human emotion into different characters.
“Creating art has always been my way of externalizing all of the inner workings of my brain and psyche. I can’t always explain what it means, but I love what I do and that, to me, is success.”

My art tends to manifest themes of memory, sexuality, aggression, and youth. Artists like Marcel Duchamp, Egon Schiele, Marquis de Sade, and Robert Crumb have influenced me greatly and encouraged me to indulge in intimate concepts, but Peter Sotos has particularly intrigued me through his controversial writing and documentation of sexuality. I believe he perfectly interpreted art with these words, “The real worth of art comes from hitting upon a language that is provoked from a lack in what you’ve become obsessed”. Through this wisdom, I utilise my own personal experiences and imagery to exploit my obsessions. By this philosophy, I can at least have peace of mind in knowing that my art is an authentic representation of myself.

Through traditional hand building and slip casting techniques, I strive to capture the inner emotional spectrum through adornments and processes. My work uses the idea of internalization to create work based off of the impulses of my mental state. To externalize my inner mental mechanisms, I create art through the exploration of material and craft.
Ceramics is unlike any other medium, I can push, tear, and bend it into the imagery I see in my head. Clay can be manipulated in its raw form. However, once you commit it to stone it remains forever unchangeable, like every passing moment of time. Occasionally, I leave clay raw to be weathered by its own devices to emphasis the delicacy of our reality. Each work of art relies on experiences from my childhood, a desire to control raw materials, and my mental impulses at the time. These three things allow me to push clay to its boundaries while expanding on traditional techniques.
I look for the line between my desires to return to a time of innocence and confronting my identity as an adult. I want to expose my intimate insecurities, while simultaneously withholding information from the audience. Through my experiences with death, anxiety, and depression, I desire to examine the depths of my inner demons and see where they take me when unveiled. I want to bring dignity to my inner dialog and allow ceramics to stand as a stoic reminder that all moments become permanent.

After being told for years that pursuing art wasn’t a viable source of income or success, I was finally able to abandon the discouraging notion that what I truly loved doing was insignificant. Perhaps I’m a bit late to the game of exhibiting my work…or maybe I needed to wait until now. Either way, it’s my time to take a risk and really start focusing on that which fills me with joy.
