IMA Indiana artist show.

 These are a few of the paintings from the Indiana artist
displayed at the IMA.
 I just took photos of the ones I liked.
It is a great show and worth the trip to see.
 This is the only fiber piece in the show.
The photograph does not do it justice.
The colors glowed.
 Here are two close ups.
The fabrics were more like upholstery and velvets.
Thick heavy fabrics.

 The still life was really nice.

 I am always drawn to trees and landscapes.
This old mill is by Dan Woodsen.
Than the winter scene.
Makes me want to take my brush out
and start painting again.

IMA Cutting-edge fashion

 We visited the fiber exhibit at the museum
after our luncheon meeting of the Indiana
SAQA group. I said I would show you some
of the fashions. I remember making a black silk
outfit in 1960 like the orange silk outfit
on the right. I always liked black and silk. 
 I thought the coat of cutouts was interesting.
 Some elegant fashions with bustiers.
 This vest caught my eye and made me think
of Jamie Fingel with the zippers.
 This  japaneese outfit got a chuckle out 
of all of us.
 Then there is the dinner jacket in black.
Tounge in cheek not the silver ware.

 This little floral dress was my favorite.
I remember lots of those floral prints in the 70's
This show featured works by Rudi Grenreich,
Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen,
Issey Miyake and Franco Moschino.
 This show curated by Niloo Paydar was
very interesting. She gave us a tour.
