Making It In Crafts III | Through Aug. 27 | This exhibition features 140 works by 51 prominent professional craft artists (clay, glass, metal, wood-working and fiber), from 25 states plus Canada and Australia. These artists make their livings by creating and selling fine-art crafts. Many are juried participants in the most prestigious art shows in the U.S. Guest curator Jim Sondgeroth has selected and invited each artist. This unique exhibit expands on the first two Making It In Crafts exhibits shown at the Art Museum in 2011 and 2014. Don't miss this exhibit, which closes in late August.

Our Wonderful Women: Who Are They? | Through Nov. 5 | This exhibit features women artists whose work is in the Art Museum's permanent collection. Spanning more than 100 years, works by these women show their creative versatility from 1890s pottery by our founder, Laura Ann Fry, to contemporary work by many living artists in our community. The ArtSmart: Indiana team has researched each artist and many of them will have their stories published on a panel beside their piece.

Dennis Wischmeier: Changing Seasons | Through Sept. 24 | When Dennis Wischmeier sees something that touches him, he wants to capture that moment, relive it and share what he saw or felt with others. He is a registered architect by profession. For his final thesis at the Ball State College of Architecture and Planning in 1978, he designed a new facility on the Wabash River for the Lafayette Art Association (now the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette). His plans will be exhibited with his paintings.
