We Are Us
A group of IWCA members traveled to the Lubeznik Center for the Arts in Michigan City, IN, for a curator led tour of the exhibit We Are Us: The Human Condition, led by Lora Fosberg. This was an engaging “inside look” at each piece in the exhibit and the choices involved in putting together a group of artworks to display together. This exhibit continues through February 24, 2023.
Member Art Works: Liz Roetzel
IWCA member Liz Roetzel is a multi-media artist presently living and working in South Bend. She has lived all over the country, doing many interesting jobs and making her art. Liz selected works from her Snake Bowl series to show here.
“I began painting them after I received a “visitation” from a snake in my apartment in Chicago. I’m convinced it was from my dear brother who had died a few weeks earlier, telling me to face my fears. Simultaneously it was about rebirth (his then, and mine in various subsequent life changes.) Over time I also came to recognize it as a symbol of healing, flexibility, and resisting temptation. “

IWCA at SBMA and more…
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.
