Joan Kisner

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"

Flory Phillips

Flory Phillips grew up in Hendricks County.  She studied art with a private studio and attended Indiana University.

 

Flory enjoys people, art and entertaining.   Put those three together and you have Paint and Sip.  What is Paint and Sip?

It's a fun social event at the Gallery on the Square.  Painters enjoy sipping their favorite beverage as they create their own work of art.

 

Flory guides the group with step-by-step instructions to re-create the featured painting of the day.

A little nervous.  Don't be.  Flory makes painting easy and exciting as you connect with your inner artsy side.  No Experience.  No problem.  At the end of the event, you take home a beautiful piece of art that was you created!.  

 

You can check out upcoming events and sign up for classes at www.paintandsip.net

"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced." -Vincent van Gogh

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.

Susan Reece

I’ve had a passion for art my whole life. I started working with ceramics 37 years ago. I started my business Barnyard Crafts over 17 years ago. Now I get to create items in my own studio and share them with you!vI'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. My merchandise is for sale in six retail locations across Indiana and two in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

Becky Crosbie 

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!
