After a lifetime of sewing & counted cross-stitching, I began quilting in 2007 when I took a beginners class at The Stitching Nook in Richmond. After the first lesson I was hooked by the geometric patterns, colors, and wonderful fabrics. My work has won blue ribbons, Best of Show, Grand Champion, and Visitor’s Choice ribbons at the Mooreland Free Fair, Franklin County Quilt Show in Brookville, Metamora Quilt Show, Wayne County Extension Homemakers Quilt Show and the Hendricks County 4-H Fair. I have also exhibited at the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show in Bloomington and at Reflected Light 2019. In 2018 I began to expand into embellished, protest, and art quilts. I especially love doing rural scenes, trees, and old barns. Since I am a hand quilter, it was only a matter of time until I elevated my skills to include and incorporate needleworking thus elevating my artform.

In addition to her bed quilts and wall hangings, she makes other items including baby quilts, cloth baby books, baby toys, purses, aprons, and baby bibs. She also takes custom assignments.

As an artist and educator for many years, there is nothing more rewarding for me than to witness a student’s excitement when discovering the magic of the creative process whether that process involves writing, visual art or performing art. 

My passion for art has taken me on a fascinating journey from developing student displays for the Eiteljorg Museum and the Indianapolis Children’s Museum to sculpting public art pieces exhibited at the Indianapolis Zoo and Riley Hospital.  My work has been part of a variety of venues including Hoosier Salon, Arts Illiana Gallery, Conner Prairie, Broad Ripple Art Fair, Carmel Art Fair, Circle Center Mall (Indianapolis), the Bungalow (Broad Ripple) and others. 

As a ceramic artist my goal is to breathe life into the clay—to make it dance…to make it tell a story.  My clay pieces are a celebration of people and nature.  They are brightly colored and multi-textured.  If my work brings a smile to the viewer’s face, I am happy!

Jennifer Davies was born in Boston, MA, grew up in Connecticut and learned to knit from her mom.  In 2010 Jen, her Mom and Step-mom were talking about what to do with old aluminum needles and hooks because they all like wood and circular needles so much!  Using her self taught jewelry-making skills  Jennifer has created a line of colorful and creative uses of old knit & crochet tools including jewelry, wind-chimes, plants stakes and shawl pins that declare our love of all things fiber.   She began offering classes to make jewelry because crafting with your favorite people is good fun and you might even make new friends!

Growing up in Chicago my family always had a membership to the Art Institute. As early as age seven, I would take the bus downtown to attend art history lectures and special exhibits. This love of art appreciation and color has stayed with me throughout my life. I dragged my kids when they were young to art museums and exhibits, and when I traveled overseas for work; I made a point of going to the many galleries and museums.

Although my Mother was a watercolorist, I didn’t start exploring my own creative spirit until later in life mostly to balance out a stressful job. About 15 years ago, I began taking various art classes at the Indianapolis Art Center, but when I attended a weekend Silk Workshop, I was hooked. I loved the way the dye spreads and changes on the semi-transparent, shimmering silk. It warms my soul and quiets my spirit to paint with dye on silk. Since then, I have taken in-person and online classes from Master Silk Painters (MSP) to learn various techniques associated with silk, including using a variety of resists to control dye spread using gutta, water-based resist, or markers to create more than a free flowing design. I’ve done extensive research on the various shibori techniques. I also attended a week long workshop in Seattle to learn the silk sizing technique from Karen Sistek, MSP where no resist is used, and the silk work is mounted on canvas. Beginning last year, I have taken watercolor classes to improve my abilities.

ETSY shop, 'DyedSilksBySusan'.

My art primarily includes wearable silk: scarves, wraps, and ties, as well as, mounted silk of botanical designs. I donate scarves for cancer patients to the Little Red Door Cancer Agency in Indianapolis. In addition, I belong to the society of Silk Painters International (SPIN). I have sold my work through the Charlotte Art League, Social Media, and through my ETSY shop.

My paintings are from nature, photographs or just fun ideas I have with real scenes, with added whimsy. My favorites are my acrylic collages which have won many awards, including one from Robert Indiana. My jewelry is a potpourri of styles and materials. I have taken many jewelry classes including one on "found objects"

Bob McColgin

Bob McColgin, Occasional Cabs and Slabs

 

Since 2015 Bob McColgin has been creating unique pendants by cutting and polishing pieces of rough-cut rock into wearable art.

 

Bob cuts rock slabs and polishes pieces of the slabs into a wide variety of custom designed unfaceted pendants.

 

Looking for natural beauty inside a chunk of rock, he cuts slabs on a large oil-bath saw, then hand polishes then on a set of grinders and polishers. Bob strives to find and uncover their natural beauty. Many of the newer designs have sterling silver wire-wrapped bails.

 

Initially given as gifts and sold at local craft fairs, pendants and necklaces he’s pleased to display and sale at the Gallery on the Square in Danville, IN

I’ve had a passion for art my whole life. I started working with ceramics 40 years ago. I started my business Barnyard Crafts over 20 years ago. Now I get to create items in my own studio and share them with you! I've studied ceramics in numerous studios in Indiana. I've attended workshops at Arrowmont School of Craft in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. I've attended pottery classes at The Indianapolis Art Center (IAC) in Broad Ripple for several years. I'm a volunteer assistant with kids classes and studio monitor at IAC and a volunteer at Arrowmont. I have also worked with wood crafts and painting on canvas. I've had the pleasure of taking classes and teaching classes in both tole painting on wood and painting on canvas. Over the years I have participated in a number of crafts fairs. Pieces of my pottery have been and still are on display at the IAC. I've had success selling a few pieces through IAC. I've also had success selling my artwork in a number of locations in the Gatlinburg, Tennessee area.  My merchandise is for sale in four retail locations across Indiana.

Sheran considers herself a world explorer, as she was raised in an Air Force family.  Much of her life was spent moving from place to place, often with little that wasn’t stored in boxes.  Crafting came easily as it was most easily portable and accessible.

She comes from a very talented family and continues to use the skill and love of creating instilled in her as a child.  While she has transitioned to jewelry – her early years of creativity included macramé, lapidary, cake decorating, crochet and cross stitch. 

After starting as a bead artist in 2007, her work continues to evolve, with the addition of wire wrap in 2008 and chainmaille in 2009.  She added metalsmithing after studying with Jewelry Artist Andréa Jackson in 2010 and incorporates the various techniques into pieces currently on sale at the Gallery on the Square.

Her work is known both nationally and internationally.  Her wire wrap took 1st Place in 3-D Design in the Central Indiana Artists Art Fair in the Spring of 2009.  In addition, she was accepted as a juried member of the International Guild of Wire Jewelry Artists and became a member of Indiana Artisans in 2009.  Her work can be found exclusively at Gallery on the Square in Danville, Indiana.

Pat's Woodturnings

Pat first started woodturning about 45 years ago, however, life got busy and she took a break from turning.  About 15 years ago, she took some refresher classes at the Indianapolis Art Center and she was hooked for good.  Since then she has taken instructions from local, national and internationally known woodturners.

Traditional woodturning starts with a single piece of wood.  The size, grain orientation and colors of the wood will frame how it can be turned into an object like a bowl, platter or vase.  She also enjoys segmenting woodturning.

She sells her pieces at several Galleries and shops in Central Indiana including Gallery on the Square in Danville.  She also does commissions.

Pat is a member of the Central Indiana Wood Workers, American Association of Woodturners, American Association of Segmented Woodturners and the Central Ohio Woodturners Guild.

Retiring Artists

Marti McCoy

Marti McCoy has been concentrating on watercolor for the last 20 years, since her retirement from teaching Art in the Danville Public Schools.  She is now teaching about three 8 week series, every year, at the Gallery, for adults, entitled Sharing the Secrets of Watercolor.

 

 Her own paintings are bright and often whimsical.  Subject matter is often children or animals, although she still loves painting still life or flowers occasionally, just for the satisfaction.  If you wonder what might have inspired any work of hers, just turn it over, as she usually writes a little about the evolution of the painting on the back.  This habit began during her post retirement job at Turtlecreek Pottery, a part of the Workshops of David T. Smith in Ohio, where she often wrote a comment or two on the back of her pottery.  These museum-quality redware reproductions of 18th century pottery still occasionally show up on E-Bay.

 

 Marti has degrees centered around art education from both DePauw and Indiana University, and more than 40 hours beyond her Masters in various fields of Art.  She is a retired Docent at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and has had professional work in Hoosier Salon, Indiana State Fair, Clayfest, and many Hendricks County Fairs.

Linda Gilbert

Linda retired from Crown Hill Cemetery and learning to paint with watercolors was at the top of her bucket list.  I began taking classes with Marti McCoy in the spring of 2015.  I hadn't painted any type of pictures for 50 years (high school).  I love learning and am blessed to be part of the Gallery on the Square.  My favorite subjects are the children in the family and animals.

In Loving ​Memory

Stay Tuned

Shirley Adams

Shirley was a founding member of the Gallery, which she dearly loved, and set the bar high for all of us.  When she stood in line to receive her talent, God blessed her with both cooking and sewing, and a lot of ambition.  She truly blessed us all with her talent and friendship, and her departure will leave a hole in our hearts, but we know we will fill it with wonderful memories of her.  Her talent will still be on display and her fiber art: purses, wall hangings, and some clothing from her TV shows will continue to be on sale, at least for a while.  In her memory, the Gallery’s Plein Air award for 2021 was designated as the Shirley Adams Award.
