Gallery Mission:
Our mission is to build bridges between different arts and backgrounds and to create an opportunity to expose local communities to impactful art. Additionally, the gallery provides a vibrant venue in the heart of downtown Bloomington for local and regional artists from all stages of their careers to exhibit.

From community, for the community. 
We seek art to elevate the public’s visual and intellectual experience in all mediums and styles. We facilitate opportunities to bring artists closer to audiences by providing art shows, talks, films, and other programming. Our venue is open to everyone through the galleries and studio programs, emphasizing art made in the community for the community. We are here to become a house for all artists, encouraging them to advance their practices and develop a stronger connection with society. We work with artists, photographers, indie filmmakers, poets, musicians, and writers to facilitate a welcoming space to exchange art and creative ideas.

The Deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest and the Resilience of the Indigenous People of Brazil by Alexandra McNichols-Torroledo

Friday, November 3 – Sunday, December 17, 2023

The Deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest and the Resilience of the Indigenous People of Brazil presented by Terre Haute based artist, Alexandra McNichols-Torroledo, consists of a series of silver gelatin photos printed from large- scale, 4×5 inch negatives. The photos detail the experiences of the Mura people of Itaparana as they live to resist deforestation and to protect their home in the Brazilian Amazon. McNichols-Torroledo traveled to Brazil from 2019 to 2021 to work with this community, engaging the Mura people with her artistic practice. The photos are accompanied by a video installation and a series of photographs made by members of the Mura community using drones to capture the destruction enacted as part of the mega-projects currently underway in the Amazon.

Away From Here curated by Zachary Kaufman

Friday, November 3 – Sunday, December 17, 2023

Indiana University Prison Arts Initiative presents its  exhibit, Away From Here. The IUPAI is the first Indiana University-sponsored prison education program. The group consists of current and former IU graduate students, and aims to administer 16 week, college-level classes in correctional facilities. Away From Here is the culmination of a visual-arts focused class, consisting of 15-20 students at Putnamville Correctional Facility in Putnam, Indiana. The exhibit displays 23 images, taken by participating IU graduate, Zachary Kaufman, showing inmates’ sketchbook pages and writings about their work. Though this work is inherently personal, IUPAI must hold to regulations that require no faces or full names of inmates are displayed. What results are images that encourage the viewer to recognize each artists’ individuality while retaining relative anonymity.

Suspended Animation: Narratives on Pulse by Jennifer Herrold

Friday, December 1 – Friday, January 19, 2023

Jennifer Herrold’s work emphasizes the contrast of idea and technique, especially evident in her portrayal of 3D forms.  Her work is heavily influenced by her family of artists, with glimpses into their work visible in her paintings.  The newest paintings on display in the Spotlight Gallery also have references to classical still lifes, allowing viewers space to pause and reflect on the subjects.
