The Irish Arts Academy of Indianapolis
We are an organization dedicated to bringing the Irish culture and arts to the Greater Indianapolis region. We offer classes to all ages and levels of experience in traditional Irish instruments, song, dance and language.
Josh Haines, along with friends Sean Yager and Amy Applegate, founded the studio space shortly after their college careers. Originally, it was just a small section of the old warehouse that the three rented. After enough demand from other artists, they decided to rent out the rest, working on fixing it up along the way and establishing a gallery. At the end of 2017, The Oilwick officially became a nonprofit with a mission to serve the artists of Indianapolis and enhance the art scene as well.
Our primary objective is keeping a low cost studio space and maintaining regular exhibitions in our gallery. In 2018, we started a handful of programs like artist meetups, critiques, classes, and figure drawing as well.
Vicky Shaffer White Studio
I am an ‘abstract naturalist’ exploring the layers of life with acrylic washes and ink on canvas. My art is about color and shapes and a positive attitude toward of life “Art seems to me to be a state of soul more than anything else.” (Marc Chagall) I have always loved Georgia O’Keefe as an artist and her character as a woman in a man’s world of art. Much of her influence still appears in my own work. I simplify and layer images while finding joy in the mundane. I am concentrating on lines, layers, color and composition primarily. Lines represent my ‘self’ trying to order the events in my life and the layers represent the complexities and ‘color’ the experience.
I have been painting for over 25 years, in Indianapolis, IN. I received a BFA degree in Fine Arts in painting from Herron School of Art. In the past I served as Executive Director of the Art Association of Henry County (AAHC) in New Castle IN. My goal was to bring art accessibility to the community through our gallery, Arts Park, classes and events such as concerts and fund raisers. I held the office of President on the Herron Alumni Association from 2004 through 2006 and served on the board for 10 years. I am a past board member of the Stutz Artist Association, IDADA (Indianapolis Downtown Artist Association), member of the Indianapolis Art Museum and listed on IndyArts.Org. I have participated in many local and regional juried shows and encourage the growth of the local arts. I am fortunate to have placed several of my paintings in the previous Mayor of Indianapolis executive offices, Keep Indianapolis Beautiful Corporate offices, Circle Theater for the ISO, and the Indianapolis Zoo. My work can be seen across the country in California, Florida, Kansas, Wisconsin & Tennessee.
