Seventeen IWCA members have work represented in Around the Bend, at the South Bend Museum of Art. The exhibit will run through June 26, 2022. Pictured (clockwise from top) are works by Liz Roetzel, Susan Ward and Jessie Lentych Lloyd.
IWCA continues to offer opportunities to share work in progress at our monthly ART SHARES. This month we met at the South Bend Museum of Art, toured the Around the Bend Exhibit, then gathered to see five artists present their most recent work. This is a casual, relaxed setting for showing what you are doing, or just taking a look at what other members are up to. Keep your eyes open for the next ART SHARE on IG and Slack.
IWCA is initiating an Art Share opportunity for our members each month from 3-5 PM at Good Shepard Montessori in South Bend.

Here are a few photos from The March 13 Art Share:
CHICAGO — Woman Made Gallery (WMG) is pleased to present “Reciprocity” juried by Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman. This exhibition includes 21 woman-identified and non-binary artist pairs anchored in photography and image-based practices and considers the reciprocal relationship between each pair.
“From the Lake Shore toward the City”
Pastel by Cathy McCormick
This is a view of a beach at the southern tip of Lake Michigan with background showing an industrial complex that was built nearby. My idea was to show the natural beach where people go to swim and relax, while industries operate in the same area. Is industry a threat to the beach, or can they exit together in peace? How does the factory affect the beach-goer’s experience?
The scene might also call to mind the artist Frank Dudley who dedicated 40 years of his life toward fighting to preserve the Indiana dunes he painted. Those efforts led to the creation of a protected state park for the dunes in 1925.
Efforts to preserve the lake shore and dunes continue, and artists continue to play a role in calling attention to the natural landscape and its relationship to industry along the Great Lakes.
