New IU Northwest exhibits have Cuban flair

Gallery Northwest at Tamarack Hall is currently exhibiting the presentation “Cuba Va!” Assembled by Prof. Ruth Needleman of the IU Northwest labor studies department, this exhibit includes photographs Needleman took and artwork she acquired during a trip she took to Cuba, where she discussed the IU Northwest Swingshift College program.

The gallery will host a reception for Needleman’s collection on Sept. 13 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Gallery Northwest. Tamarack Hall is located at the west end of the north campus parking lot, adjacent to the campus police station.

In keeping with this month’s Cuban theme, the IU Northwest Savannah Center Gallery for Contemporary Art recently opened the show “Symbols and Myths,” featuring the oil paintings of Cuban artist Paul Sierra. Sierra’s work is comprised of large oil canvasses that colorfully depict automobile crashes. The show runs through Sept. 22.

Hours for both galleries are Monday and Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For evening or weekend appointments, or more information on IU Northwest gallery presentations, call Ann Fritz, gallery curator, at (219) 980-6891.
