Zhenya: The Exhibition ... with refreshments.

The refreshments of which we speak will be NABC's Community Dark, Gold and Hoosier Daddy. The downtown New Albany building (234 E. Pearl) is somewhat affectionately known to locals as Jim's Gun Room, an ill-fated business occupying it until a point in the early 1990's (there's a nafarious story to be told, but not today). When built, it was a bank, and renovation currently underway should strip subsequent layers of tackiness, revealing at least some of the previous appearance.

Zhenya: The Exhibition

This year’s IU Southeast Senior BFA Fall exhibition is an exciting compilation of media and styles. Eight artists from five disciplines will display their work, ranging from illusionistic to purely abstract forms. Work includes traditional media such as oils, graphite, monotype, ceramics, and also branches into installation, shadow boxes and vegetable papyrus. The collection will be housed in one of New Albany’s oldest structures, recently purchased for restoration. This diverse repertoire of work promises a night of wonder and excitement that guarantees to fill the hole in Zhenya’s heart.

Exhibiting Artists: Philip Carlton, Wende Cudmore, Jeremy Dattilo, Miri Fetko, Dani Maudlin, Rebeka Trapp, Kayla Troutman, Amie Villiger

The ZHENYA exhibition will be held on December 8, 2012 at 234 Pearl Street, New Albany, Indiana (on the corner of Pearl and Market Street). This show is a ONE NIGHT EVENT open from 5:00pm-8:00pm. Refreshments will be available.

NABC at the CLEAN FOSSILS collaborative exhibition on Saturday, December 3.

Last Saturday (December 3), Josh and Megan served NABC beers and Turtle Run wines at CLEAN FOSSILS, a collaborative exhibition featuring the artwork of the 2011-2012 senior IU Southeast BFA artists. The exhibit was held at 501 Pearl Street, an historic building in the midst of refurbishment located just around the corner from Bank Street Brewhouse. This is precisely the sort of event we enjoy doing downtown because of the good vibe it brings to a revitalizing neighborhood. For views of the art, follow these links:

This Saturday: The Undertow Art Show "Against the Current," in support of Planned Parenthood.

It's coming this Saturday (July 30), it's on Facebook, and it's a LEO staff pick:

Saturday, July 30

The Undertow Art Show

The Art Store

205 E. Market St., New Albany, IN

Free; 2-11 p.m.

The intent of this, the latest in a thankfully never-ending stream of art/bands/beer events, is to support Planned Parenthood of Indiana. If this doesn’t speak to your interests, move on, it’s a free country. The organizers state, “The goal of this group exhibit is to showcase artists with a message.” Such artists have been invited to participate by expressing their take on pressing issues of the day (just like the hippies did!), such as the economy, the wars and other “natural” disasters. “From the creation of art, we can open conversation and reach new depths of communication,” they pledge. And did I mention the beer? New Albanian Brewing Company will be selling their drinkable art, and bands like Shawn Sleeps Naked and Bunny Day and the Mercy Buckets will provide the aural art. — Peter Berkowitz

Special pin of cask-conditioned Community Dark to accompany night two of the Purple People Party.

Tonight for the Purple People Party art show, Jared will be tapping a pin (five gallons) of cask-conditioned Community Dark, and with a delightful difference: It's a wooden pin that formerly housed Calvados-aged JW Lees Vintage Harvest Ale. The ale should be flowing by late afternoon.

Whe emptied, the pin will be refilled with bouncing baby Solidarity and hidden away to alchemize. You'll forget all about it, and then, when you least expect it ... Jared will break the seal and you'll read another e-mail.

The Worst Art Show EVER!!

Art of all kinds to enjoy and criticize!

The idea behind this show is giving a chance for people to show off their work yet again at the NABC. However, the artists are also encouraged to show their least favorite piece of art. Who knows? They might hate their work and you might actually love it. Weirder things have happened.

So come on out and enjoy the art, music, and beer!

It may be the worst art show that you have ever been to ... and there is only one way to find out!

Music- as of right now:

Stephen Powell
Jared Williamson
Daniel Brown
Tara Kimes

There may be a few other performance artists at this show but it's a bit to early to tell. I will keep you posted as things change.

New Albanian Art Show: "The Coolest Event in all of Louisville is in New Albany."

I hope that Kat doesn't mind my borrowing her words as an enticement for readers to come out and experience the New Albanian Art Show currently under way in Prost. Tonight's the final night, people.

The Coolest Event in all of Louisville is in New Albany

I am IMPRESSED. Opening night of the art show, being a Thursday, was not something I expected much of. Honestly, I enjoy the Thursdays a lot, though, because it seems to be mostly the artists there. The viewers/buyers will likely turn out more on Friday and Saturday

As for the art... so eclectic. So many styles, so much variety... so much talent. Joshua Gilley always does stuff that makes me want to be a buyer, not a seller (but I'm too broke for all that). Tony just f'n ROCKS (and I LOVE the beer labels he does for the NABC). Misty only put two pieces in, and you have to look for them because they are small and in black and white, but if you find them and absorb the energy of the strokes and the purity of what she does, you'll love her instantly. Then talk to her, and you'll see why everything she does just naturally comes out art, because she is a true work of art herself.

What really astounded me, this time around, however was the live shows. I expect some talented local songwriters and stuff, singing and strumming in the background. But I was blown away by the two who did yoga to music... right there amongst the art, these two people making a dozen works of art per minute with their bodies... it was beautiful.

And, the NABC being the accidental melting pot of talent and creativity, I come to find out one of those two performers had been a diswasher there. No surprise. That place just attracts, exhales, and breeds mental magic. From the professors that chat there, to the musicians and artists... the kitchen of that place holds more talent that all of my favorite Louisville art galleries put together.

Then Peter performed.... I will lay awake stumped over that for days. The intensity of his performance, the power, genius, and abrupt elloquence of his words, and the fun of the music just came together into something so enjoyable I had to walk away every now and then to let my brain settle down because I was too overjoyed with the experience of it to process it all. And, of course, Stephen Powell played. (see I would be a HUGE fan of his remarkable talent even if I didn't adore him as a friend. His music is unforgettable

If you want some free wine and some ok art just to say you buy local art, go on a gallery hop. If you want an unparalleled experience in the real thing, you should have been at NABC tonight. I mean no disrespect towards the local Louisville artists. I love the galleries downtown and revel in every opportunity to experience the work down there. I've seen some WONDERFUL work down there. But to see what talent was hidden in New Albany really moved me, tonight. I was proud to be a part of it

Kudos to Kevin for the organizing. I hope he didn't use up all the best performances tonight, because I don't see how the next two nights could follow it, but I have faith in New Albanian Art. It will be great, I'm sure.

NABC's Hoosier Daddy Art Show this weekend (May 10th,11th & 12th).

NABC's Hoosier Daddy Art Show is scheduled for Mother's Day Weekend (May 10th,11th & 12th). This third edition in the Prost wing of the building gets under way on Thursday.

I can’t tell you how proud I am of our employees, who’ve done every bit of the heavy lifting necessary to mount these productions. Just this past Sunday I found myself in conversation with a person who was lamenting the state of the nation’s youth in the current day and age. I've generally never agreed with such pronouncements, and judging from the way our twenty-somethings have handled responsibility when it comes to these art shows, I’m here to tell you that the criticism is misdirected.

Of course there’ll be beer, too.

Here's the preview from guiding light Kevin Dennis.
