I’m a visual teaching artist specializing in art retreats. My present series of paintings in process is about reconciliation. Eight large panels present a canopy in each color of the light spectrum with different groups of children underneath. The last one will culminate in white signifying the union of all into one- that union itself being a refuge for all peoples. I’m also developing and offering art retreats based on the Liturgy of the Hours – used a a conceptual template for expressive art, color theory and values. Contemplation of the seasons of life combined with times of the day from Vigils to vespers provide content for imaginative, guided projects. Other areas are portraits and commissions and fresh work for home staging.

Brian Krecik is a graduate of Indiana University with a degree in Anthropology and an MFA in Photography from The Academy of Art University. He has traveled and lived in both Korea and Japan where he taught about culture and language. For more than a decade he worked as a web application programmer, though he has never forgotten about his one greatest passion – people. It is what drove him to pursue a degree in Anthropology and what fueled his passion for capturing images that are both visually and emotionally moving.
Brian works in the field of lyrical documentary and fine art. When working with clients or working on his personal art he looks to capture moments that identify who we are and what connects us to the world around us. Simply put, He approaches this medium to record life, but to do so in a way that captures moments that express human emotion and the passions that drive us or provoke thought.
For those that he meets along the way and work with personally, he sincerely thanks each and every one of you. Having the chance to work with each of you either on creative portraits, documentary work, crafting creative art, or working on commercial or corporate photography has been a pleasurable experience. He looks forward to working on future projects and if you are new to his work, he hopes that you enjoy the imagery as much as he had creating it.

Visual Arts: Constructions/Collage, Photography, Visual Arts Instructor; term
Time is not depressing when you use it to create art and foster creative experiences for others. It does not shrink and swell like it does for everything else. Each new brush stroke on an oil painting, not a deck, feels like an organized gesture that breathes new life.
So, too for me in the creation of model-sets that I create then render into photographs. Or, places I surreptitiously enter to photograph. A photograph is timeless tangible evidence that an action existed. I try to stress acts that deal with a high level of impermanence at their core then record them beautifully. Always trying to perfect for audiences so that not only I will benefit from the experience of them. Then, I tear down the structures and start a new idea. The new idea has a lineage with its predecessor and so on. I try to capitalize on this so that the photographs are in essence a family.

I am an artist living and working in Indianapolis, IN. I grew up in a rural Indiana town of 300 and spent lots of my childhood creating art and inventing ways to keep myself entertained. I spent my free time playing sports, riding bikes, and building forts. I had a classic 80’s childhood…outside playing from sun up to sun down. The one constant in my childhood was my love for art. I knew from an early age that art was the only career path for me, and have been pursuing it ever since.
I live in South East Indianapolis with my husband and two beautiful sons. They constantly inspire me to push forward and create my best work. My six year old is my biggest fan and critic and often enjoys creating along side me. I hope to pass on a love for art on to the next generation…so far so good.

Performing Arts: Dance; Visual Arts: Graphic Arts, Illustration, Printmaking, Visual Arts Instructor; term
Dara G. Lewis has always bee a visual learner. Growing up it was quickly understood that she needed greater visual reference than most to excel. But as she grew up if there was no visual reference provided she made her own which also started to help those around her understand concepts given. Growing up she had multiple artistic interests including ballet, visual art and horseback riding. Ballet and horses too precedent since being homeschooled prevented finding any good art teacher. She excelled in both and moved onto becoming a horse trainer in Dressage and other training disciplines. Still dancing she remained a ballerina and choreographer into her early twenties. Listening to her parents’ desires for her to gain a non-artistic education in hopes for a more “lucrative” career at age 19 she attended nursing school at the local community college in Sanborn, NY. She excelled within this field as well, although still sketching the human body during A&P classes to satisfy her artistic itch. One year into the two year RN program there was a problem. The college had ignorantly left open the formaldehyde vat the dissected cats were being stored during A&P classes. Dara’s station was right next to the vat and caused severe brain damage. Needing to drop out of college and plagued by seizures she spent the next 8 months in and out of doctors offices and hospitals waiting for an answer. The only thing she had was her art so she started drawing….a lot. After finding a medicine that worked things returned to a relative normal; but left side brain damage remained. She found certain things like coordination, language, memory and math very difficult. Professional possibilities narrowed greatly for her. She decided to cut the nonsense and go for what she originally wanted to go for…Visual Art. Showing a few times before finally building the courage and ability to drive she signed up for classes at the University of Buffalo, NY at the age of 22. Attending art classes gave her hope back. She graduated Magna cum Laude within three years and was asked to return for the Noncommittal show at the beginning of 2013. She moved to Indianapolis that year after a year long of Skype dating her soon to be husband. They met at the yearly Messiah Conference for Messianic Jews and Believers and fell in love quickly. After a second terror bout of seizures she married Nick Lewis later that year. Even more damaged she spent the next year on sabbatical from everything trying to recover; in 2015 she started making art again. Now a year later she is working on a new body of work with a specific range of themes.

Contemporary figurative painting has played a continuous important role in the modern art of Latin America. It is my intent to draw upon that tradition to inject new ideas and energy into both my current work and my teaching. I began my fellowship by attending an exhibition of the Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo, at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN in February, 2008. This large retrospective exhibit included many of her major paintings that had never been outside of Mexico before. Although I have read extensively about Kahlo’s work and have seen several of her paintings over the years, being able to examine important works in one location provided new insights and inspiration.

For centuries humans have created art purely to express what was inside them, begging to be let out. Feeling a strong connection to the primal markings our ancestors used in their caves, on the cliffs, with piles of stones and even in the wet earth, I manipulate layers of materials with my hands and other simple tools as a way to connect back to those primitive urges. By using artistic, industrial and natural resources such as paper, acrylic, ink and even concrete, gravel, sand, stones and wood I tell visual stories using organic and geometric shapes. The act of physically connecting the layers and materials in each piece is a very fulfilling, sensory experience.
Creating abstract art has come to be a passion in my life and sharing the artistic methods I explore with others is a natural part of my process. I am continually fascinated by the originality that dwells within each person! Given access to the same media and techniques no two individuals create the same thing. Watching their progress as I guide them through an artistic process helps me to grow as an artist as well.
Viewers are drawn to my work by the texture, color and details. By spending time with my art they will also find things hidden within the layers, waiting to be discovered. I delight in the moment when those details reveal themselves to others, sparking inspiration, stirring emotions or provoking thought.

Sarah Jayne Mercado began her craft of upcycling in her early teens after learning how to sew. For her, art is both about the processes and the experimentations. She practices collage, assemblage, abstraction, and all the things in between.
Sarah lives in Franklin, Indiana where she immerses into her studio life surrounded by the sounds of birds, dogs, and trains. The inspiration for her art comes from her encounters with unique people and their stories, the curiosities of various societies, and the despairing and wondrous moments experienced through the processes of living. Life is about the journey and Sarah plans to expand upon her life and the lives of others through our humanistic need to create.
Visual Arts: Murals, Painting, Visual Arts Instructor; term
I create many contrasts in my work, such as bright, abstract, organic shapes vs. thin, gesture lines, and glossy vs. matte finish. I do this by creating many layers and textures using much mixed media. I love to find the beauty in things that other people have discarded. I tend to take found objects, newspaper clippings, sand, twine, and glue to uniquely individualize my oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings. I also listen to my subconscious, striving to paint intuitively. Another process I use to give a distinct characteristic to my paintings is my application of thick layers to build up the canvas creating a somewhat sculptural feel. Some of my paintings are very conceptual, but I do not believe that it cannot evoke a personal feel for the viewer as well. Living in downtown Indianapolis has inspired much of my hectic city life and fast paced traffic series.

I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1991, where I majored in graphic design, photography and filmmaking. I have taken those artistic skills and turned them into my life’s work by continually advancing my knowledge of the technology required to produce digital media. I have always been an advocate for and a participant in the arts. The arts have provided me with personal motivation and have influenced how I make my living. For over 20 years I have produced all sorts of projects such as fund-raising music videos, industrial films, independent documentaries, commercials, educational websites, exhibits and interactive kiosks. I also have experience in event production, advertising and Internet marketing.

The unexpected oddness of our lives – twists, turns, stumbles and rebirths, all form our expression, stance, and style of interaction, always embellished with the subtle marks and scars of life’s experiences.
My figurative claywork is composed of hollow, handbuilt forms. I use various pinching, pulling, slab, and attaching techniques. Surfaces are often carved, textured, or roughened . After a bisque firing, pieces are rubbed and brushed with layers of underglazes, majolicas, and glazes. There are often multiple firings to achieve the surfaces and colors desired.
I also work with tiles, decorative, yet functional, pottery forms, and painted drawings on roofing felt. Come by my studio at the Harrison Center on first Fridays, or check my website to see examples of my work.

My current work consists of abstract paintings and drawings which are an intuitive response to my environment and experiences. I am motivated by the nature of the material and the activity of creating a mark to express my ideas. Through an instinctual impulse of combining line, color, pattern, shape and texture I create abstract images using acrylics, graphite, charcoal, pastel and ink.
