Reflected Light: A Midsummer Art Exhibition is a one-night juried visual art show that is a must-
attend event for all art lovers. It showcases traditional and innovative visual works created by
some of the most talented artists in Indiana.
Attendees can browse the gallery while live music plays in the background, volunteers proffer
elegant appetizers on serving platters and enjoy delectable self-serve charcuterie tables.
Artists from across Indiana are featured in a wide variety of mediums. The artists’ experience
levels range from art students to accomplished professionals.
The eighth Reflected Light: A Midsummer Art Exhibition is a unique one-night art show, said
Brian Russelburg, vice president of the Hendricks County Arts Council and curator of the show
“It promotes professional and unknown visual artists in upbeat, cutting edge paintings,
photos, ceramics and sculptures,” he said. “The art viewing will be accompanied with foods as
tasty as they are beautiful.
“I have exhibited in Reflected Light the past seven years and it is one of the most professionally run and classiest one-night art shows I have ever been involved with,” Pittsboro resident and retired art teacher Brenda Foreman said. “Brian Russelburg is hard working and dedicated to getting artists of all levels of experience exposure to the community. He does it all with heart and enthusiasm, and that results in an amazing art show.”
Foreman’s abstract painting, “A World Within,” is the artwork used in this year’s Reflected Light
“This piece took first place abstract in 2010 in the Central Indiana Artists Incorporated juried show,” Foreman said. “The name reflects that within the bud of flower is every part of its life cycle. I was thrilled when Brian asked if he could use it in promotional materials for Reflected Light.”
Reflected Light features 60 and 70 artists and about 120 pieces of art.
John Perez, assistant professor and program chair of the visual communications department at
Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis, has previously been a Reflected Light featured
artist and juror.
“Reflected light is not only a varied collection of art and artists, it is a good
time,” he said.
Last year Perez submitted a piece of video art titled, “Reciprocal Distraction 1.0.” This art form
began in the late 1960s and utilizes video and audio technology to create moving pictures of a
piece of art. “Reciprocal Distraction 1.0” demonstrates how the modern world is a
concentration of distraction. Exhibition goers can experience viewing the still piece and then
watch its video format.
