After a successful run up in Vincennes, The New World Order: 1-20-2017 has come home to roost in The Window on the Walkway at the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana (318 Main Street, Evansville, IN 47713 812/422-2111). This special exhibit of engineered 3-dimensional art can be viewed 24/7 and will be up until mid-November. TNWO collection is an intense departure from Billy’s customary public work, but in keeping with a long tradition of making art as social commentary (see the Commentary page on this site or at the exhibit). It is the culmination of his art sabbatical taken this past year.
For fans of Billy’s more traditional work, there are three galleries carrying his art this holiday season. The Arts Council’s annual holiday sale begins on November 18 and will have Billy’s most recent work – new urbanscapes, some soothing landscapes, and magical art. Shoppers in Vincennes can head to The Open Gallery (329 Main Street, 812/881-6475) for three-dimensional work or to The Northwest Territory Art Guild (316 Main Street, 812/881-8344) for a selection of paintings of trees and flowers.
So, just head to Main Street this season, and support the truly local economy and feed some hungry artists! Bon appetit!
