A Shout-Out from Billy Hedel’s Studio

(Left to right – A Man of the NWO, A Woman of the NWO, The ‘Other’ in the NWO)

Join Haynie’s Corner artist Billy Hedel at the Arts Council tomorrow, Friday, March 10 from 5:30 to 7 pm for the closing reception for Art Noir.  The black & white group show includes multiple artists working in all media and has attracted a lot of attention for its strict color palette.  Billy’s entry – A Man of the New World Order: 1-20-2017 – in particular has garnered great positive feedback, according to gallery director Andrea Adams.  This framed, mixed-media three-dimensional portrait (20×24” $ 395) is one of a trio of new works, all of which will be on display for the evening by special arrangement.  A Woman of the New World Order: 1-20-2017 (20×24 framed, $ 395) and The ‘Other’ in the New World Order (a Self-portrait) (20×24 framed, $ 395) are also mixed media 3-D wall sculptures created during Billy’s current art sabbatical.

To purchase, contact the Arts Council (318 Main Street, Evansville IN, 812/422-2111) or the studio (812/303-4722).

Shop on Saturday this week & next

A Shout Out! From Billy Hedel’s Studio – December 7, 2016

The Arts Council will be open for your shopping convenience from 12 to 4 pm this Saturday, December 10 and next weekend, Saturday, December 17.  These hours are in addition to regular hours, which are Tuesday through Friday, 10 am to 4 pm (Mondays by appointment) through December 23.  The gallery and gift shop are located at 318 Main Street (812/422-2111).

In this post are images of Billy’s oil paintings in the show.   This fall he has been exploring oil paint on different media – canvas (including Belgian linen), paper, and board.  This is a rare chance to snag one of Billy’s oil paintings (which are less common than his acrylics), and framed pictures were professionally done by Bippus framing, another downtown business.

Small Business Saturday is tomorrow, November 23, 2016.  Billy Hedel is spending the day at the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana (318 Main Street, 10 am – 2 pm, 812/422-2111).  Stop by and browse through his collection of more than three dozen works in oil and acrylic, on canvas and paper, framed and unframed, in 2-D and 3-D, at all price points.

Consider giving gifts this season that you know the recipient won’t have, that are a reflection of our unique community, and that support a hyper-local economy.  Avoid the crowds eastside, westside and northside; instead, head Downtown to Main Street and Haynie’s Corner and explore the new and established businesses that you can only find in EVV!

The Arts Council is open Tuesday – Thursday from 10 am to 2 pm through December 23 and on Mondays by appointment.  Visit throughout the holiday season.
