E. Adele Schluge Art
For the past couple of years I’ve been painting small pieces on cereal box cardboard; subjects include people and scenes on my East Side of Indianapolis; biblical narratives; religious images; woods and water, Indiana farms and small towns, urban sites; old buildings wherever I go. I consider my style naive (not “native”!) and not at all academic. Each painting expresses something I’ve seen, hope for, imagine, appreciate, and every single day brings new inspiration.
I grew up in Vincennes, Indiana, on the Wabash River, and cherish my childhood there and its roots in my German Irish forebears. Our pre-Civil War red brick house stood on the corner of 8th and Harrison, part of the original property of William Henry Harrison. My degree from Indiana University is in art education, and I loved teaching my own and other Irvington children art around my kitchen table for years as our four were growing up.
Eight years ago my husband and I purchased an abandoned house in the old Holy Cross neighborhood; now our little 1880’s cottage is the only original home on the block, as an explosion of new construction changes the profile of these Irish immigrant houses. I hope Holy Cross can maintain a balance between old and new, and that the diversity of our neighborhood won’t be lost.
I recently concluded a project, “Urban Icons”, benefiting Young Men, Inc., a mentoring outreach of the Great Commission Church of God at 33rd and Arsenal. The work done at YMI itself, for over a quarter of a century, benefits our city by helping to shape responsible, peace-loving, respectful, educated and contributing youth. A portion of every sale of my artwork goes to YMI, so thank you for your support of this wonderful ministry to under-served young men on Indianapolis’ East Side.
Please feel free to contact me via facebook, my website, or through the Antique Mall of Irvington, where you can find my art notes, cards and prints.

Wyeth, Andy Warhol, Georgia O’Keeffe, Allan Houser, Frederic Remington, Charles Russell and Kay WalkingStick. The institution’s contemporary Native art collection has been ranked among the world’s best.
The Eiteljorg also prides itself on offering engaging exhibitions. Special exhibitions at the Eiteljorg have covered diverse subjects, including the artistry and histories of pistols and motorcycles; the intersecting experiences of African- and Native Americans; Jewish life in the West; and the work of iconic artists Ansel Adams and Georgia O’Keeffe. The museum allows guests to further immerse themselves in Western and Native cultures through dynamic programs, cultural exchanges and events. The Eiteljorg has explored GLBT representation in Western film; celebrated women in the West and hosts a variety of Western and Native artists in residence each year.
The Eiteljorg Museum is the only museum of its kind in the Midwest, and one of only two museums east of the Mississippi that explore both Native America and the American West.

For the past 75 years, Columbus’ remarkable collection of modern architecture, art, and design has been a defining characteristic of the city’s cultural identity, and a key economic driver. With a population of approximately 46,000 people, Columbus remains a shining example in America’s Heartland of what a community can do when it works together with shared values and philosophy. Now is a critical time to care for Columbus’ design heritage and leverage it as a source of inspiration for the next generation.
Landmark Columbus was founded in 2015 and has started a movement to continue the tradition of using design incentives not design control, what we call “progressive preservation.” We have made significant advances in caring for Columbus’ heritage and through Exhibit Columbus we have sparked a design renaissance that connects our future to new audiences and partners. We have shown how Columbus’ heritage can be a beacon to the next generation and a national example of innovation and excellence that is inspiring to people in communities of all sizes.
We believe our mission allows for people in Columbus and far beyond to find meaning and purpose in our work. We are actively looking for new supporters and partners to validate our mission and help us achieve our goal to become financially and culturally sustainable. Together we can leverage a unique part of our identity into a larger platform that reasserts the value that architecture, art, and design have in making people and cities stronger. We can educate this and future generations about the importance of shaping cities to reflect our shared responsibilities and most noble aspirations.

HISTORY AND MISSION
In the years leading up to the Arts Council’s move from Monument Circle to North Pennsylvania Street in 2010, a large number of small, independently owned galleries and alternative exhibition spaces began closing their doors due to the vicious economic downturn. The devastating impact on the local visual arts scene cannot be overstated. The six established galleries and some smaller spaces that shut down in this two to three year period all but paralyzed the visual arts community.
In direct response to these circumstances, the Arts Council committed to create a professional level gallery suitable for high level solo shows, curated group shows and exhibitions created and presented by partner organizations. The first task was communicating with current and past gallery owners as well as non-profit exhibition space providers and artists. After conversations, meetings, and discussions with leaders in the visual arts community, the Arts Council staff and board felt confident the goal of creating a professional gallery space to supplement the current offerings was solid and supported by that community.
Today, on a budget of less than $2,000 annually, Gallery 924 hosts ten exhibitions per year highlighting central Indiana contemporary artists in solo and curated group shows and is a member and participant in the Indianapolis Downtown Artists and Dealer’s Association First Friday Art Tour. In addition, ACI staff work to support the work and the careers of the artists exhibited in Gallery 924 long after the work comes down and the lights go off. Gallery 924 is an initiative to enhance the Indianapolis art scene and support the work and the careers of central Indiana professional artists.
Gallery 924 provides a professional exhibition space worthy of high-level curated solo and group shows. The end goal of the space is to push forward the careers of central Indiana mid-career and established artists, enabling them to build their professional resume and seek opportunities regionally and nationally. The space also seeks to give emerging and newly successful artists an opportunity to be a part of a professional group exhibition that will enable them to grow towards their first solo show.
A thriving gallery scene where all talented artists at every stage in their careers have the opportunity to be represented and show their work in a professional setting.
