Visual Arts: Painting, Sculpture
I am a painter. I do not reject the term artist, but I believe in it’s present context the title spans much that is of little interest to me. I do not aspire to the idea of artist as arbiter of culture. I do embrace the idea that art can heal, that it can console , that it can show the commonality between us all. My goals are simple: to illuminate aspects of reality via the medium of pigment on canvas. In this regard, the greatest illumination is personal and in my case, arrives at the point where the process of painting begins. My goal is nothing less than liberation. Painting is the process, my transformation is it’s goal. I hope in the journey there are others who may also see, through my work, where I am pointing, but what I seek is not essentially social. In an age of cynicism I remain a romantic. john charles brooks 2007

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.

I like to tackle political and cultural themes in my work. I seek to create art that involves diverse views and serves as a vehical for contemplation of life’s complexities.
Visual Arts: Photography
“I have always viewed my work as a kind of personal photojournalism, and it is through the medium of photography that I feel a greater connection to the world around me. I especially like irony in pictures and am always open to the incidental and unanticipated, often a peripheral element that introduces a new dimension into the pictures. – Robert Brown

Through capturing photographic imagery from personal sacred space, dreams and the natural world, I create my own language of metaphors and special symbolism. This is visual journaling of what’s important to me and my inner thoughts and ideas are made visible through my technique and my choice of subject matter. I believe we are formed by images and we need to develop a critical intake and understanding of what we are seeing.
There are reoccurring images throughout my work from spiritual pilgrimages, family, the natural
world and dreams that are important to me. I return often to placing a special black stone in my
work that represents me. This is an important touchstone of meditation and memory which
allows me to be placed in the spiritual spaces that I capture and compose. Light and shadow are
also a reoccurring symbolism representing spiritual and self-awareness. By encountering the
push and pull of both my light and my shadow, I expose myself to a source of life otherwise not
seen. For me, this is where divinity is found.

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.

With a background in bronze casting and paleontology, I am inspired by the application of a process and the passage of time as a means to transform. In my practice I examine the human experience within the realm of deep time, exploring the grander temporal potential of daily rituals through fossilization. I create fictional artifacts that exist at the intersections of craft, ecology, science fiction, queerness, time scale and human sustainability when facing imminent change.

What is Quixotic Artistry? It is first and foremost, my brand. It’s whimsy, it’s being able to look failure directly in the eye, and say “f*&# off”, and turn it into success. It’s my past heartbreak, and my feelings of insecurity. Ironically, it is my suit of armour, and my confidence. It is Assemblage, fashion design, makeup artistry, and graphics. It is choreography, it is design. It’s perfect balance. It is the rebirth of my failed attempts at becoming a fashion designer, yet is the new life of a new approach. It is the phoenix, that is rising from the ashes of what I thought to be the end of a journey. Alas, my journey is not over. What is Quixotic | Artistry ? It is whatever that I want it to be, and will be everything that I quixotically dream it to be.

I studied art in high school (thank you Mrs. McQuitty), and at John Herron, then Indiana University, and then Purdue University.
I do paintings and sculpture and mobiles, specializing in compositions that are one work by day and another by night, because I incorporate naturally glowing minerals that absorb light by day and then shed it when the lights go out.
My husband (Kurt Kriese- a gifted painter and stained glass artist) and I have had a studio in the CCIC since 2016- “Daily Epiphany Studio” (South Studio B17) and we open for First Fridays or by appointment.

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.

I create all of my work from an overwhelming desire to communicate that which transcends explanation. I wish to bring the raw forces of creation & beauty to the surface as a means to translate experiences & visions into sharable mediums. It is my belief that art has the ability to transform by resonating the fundamental energies deep within our beings. I believe art has the ability to unlock the potentials of our highest selves.

Hailing from Indianapolis, Indiana, I moved to France in 2016 and started taking classes at Parsons The New School in Paris. While studying there, I had the opportunity to perform in my professor’s performance art piece at the Nuit Blanche art festival. I returned to Indiana in December of 2017 and focussed on gaining experience and participating in exhibitions. From July-August, 2018, I had a five week long Artist Residency in New Orleans, Louisiana. It resulted in a solo show, for which I examined the prostitutes of the red light district during the birth of Jazz.

“The goal of art is to enlighten the soul. These paintings are the result of many years of learning and searching. From landscape paintings, ice and snow, to birds and flowers, these paintings can offer you a clear, beyond-the-world feeling, and comfort your soul. ” – Zuimeng Cao

I have been an artist all of my life. As an active painter, since 2007, in the Indianapolis area, I love pulling inspiration from landscapes and cityscapes. Texture is my passion. I work primarily with a pallet knife using acrylic or oil paints on canvas. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ball State University, which is where I fell in love with painting all over again. Studying other artists and growing in my profession, are important to me.
The landscapes around me, near and far inspire me. My love for color trends and texture really show through in my work. My style is called Impasto, meaning “thick paint”. I view myself as an Impressionist artist. I first began painting in a “swatch-like” pattern from studying the works of Paul Cezanne during my years in college. And when I paint, everything is quiet and I escape to a place I love. It truly is my calling.

I believe I am inspired to be creative in mixed media artwork as well as dance in an ‘outsider-style’ format. The creative impulse I receive and the images of what to draw/perform as well as how to do the art come to me organically but most often when I am listening to music and around safe and artistically like-minded people. The majority of what I am influenced to draw is manga-based but I am also activated by the environment around me and the images I see in it. What I do can be considered a sort of performance art because it is most often located randomly and the artistic flow I receive is spontaneous.

Bernie Carreño's work is primarily accomplished through fabricated or cast metals. He uses industrial materials to ensure reduction of the subject to pure form is fundamental to the work. Complex details are stripped away, reducing the subject to clean lines. He believes form is an effective tool to communicate complex ideas clearly and with strength.Bernie Carreño received his B.F.A. and M.F.A. in Sculpture from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. His pieces can be found in collections and galleries throughout the United States and Canada.

The secrets to success are understood by the way we interact with our dreams and imagination. Dreams are visions of our thoughts and idea on how we believe we can make a difference. Creative thoughts, expressions, and emotions are combined with different styles and elements to create a better sense of understanding on art in the world.
I was born and raised in Indianapolis, IN. I believed that through my art I could change the way people understand the perception of art. My art speaks conversation through emotions and feelings which givers my viewers a better sense of understanding based on how the art relates to them. I have displayed work throughout the country and around my community in various places such as local Starbucks, bars, the arts garden, IUPUI Cultured Art Gallery and different Libraries around Indianapolis. With the ambitions on the understanding how photography and graphic design relates to fine art, I attended the Art Institute of Indianapolis.
Outside of art I contributes and gives back to his community by participating in cancer walls, coaching kid on the art of bowling and painting and teached leadership skills to teenagers at local YMCA.

Brandt Carter is coming back to her street-art roots. Beginning in the late 70’s thru the 90’s, art fairs and galleries were the outlets for her animal and farm works from silverpoints to inks and acrylics. Now years later, she is coming back to paint her animals featuring dog and cat portraits to raise money for the new regional facility for Canine Companions for Independence, a national service dog program where they breed, train, and place dogs for free for people with disabilities other than blindness.

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.
