The Pharmacy Presents its Seventh Group Art Exhibition November 9, 2013

Featuring Contemporary Project Artist Noelle Hoover

The Pharmacy presents a group exhibition to the community of Springfield that features diverse and new work, in a variety of media, from all artist members of the collective. In addition to the group exhibition, the Pharmacy has curated contemporary project artist from Indianapolis artist Noelle Hoover. Works will be presented to the public on Saturday, November 9, from 6:00-9:00 PM at the Pharmacy Warehouse, located at 1022 S. Pasfield in Springfield, Illinois.

The Pharmacy collective members have long been preparing for the exhibit, and continue to strategize ways to keep the recurring exhibits engaging, enjoyable, and even challenging. “It’s quite exhilarating to once again offer Springfield a glimpse of what we, the collective members of the Pharmacy, have been hard at work with, while we also invite and present a contemporary artist from outside of our community to exhibit alongside of us. We offer this to our community that essentially just can’t be experienced at this level anywhere else in the city.  The community is enthusiastic and celebrates our efforts with us. For that, we are, and will remain, grateful,” says Janet Sgro, a Pharmacy artist. Exhibiting Pharmacy artists include Phil Ackerman, Jess Black, Jim Edgecomb, J.T. Elliott, Ben S. Jacob, Rachel Jennings, Jason Matthews,  Keeley Mills, Felicia Olin, Danielle Paoni, Diane Schleyhahn, and Janet Sgro.

Noelle Hoover will present her sculpture installation, on freestanding pedestals in Pharmacy Warehouse. Noelle Hoover has a BFA in ceramic from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and earned her MFA in ceramics from Illinois State University in 2005. She currently lives, works and teaches in Indianapolis IN.  Noelle is thrilled to be exhibiting alongside the artists of The Pharmacy.  The sculpture installation is comprised of everyday objects treated in a most unusual way creating precious treasures that art breathtaking.  “I try to translate the gestures of animals and the swell and movement of cumulus clouds into functional shapes. A ceramic mold is then made from those models and cast in clay. Through adding elements together and multiple glaze firings the repetitious process is modified to make one of a kind pieces. It is from this investigation of everyday objects that I strive to create artworks that the owner will use, handle and enjoy. I would like there to be a tiny celebration everyday and I hope my objects can inspire that in their owners.” states guest project artist, Noelle Hoover.

 

Also on display will be furniture designed by Jim Standerfer of Lumbering Behemoth Construction and Design. “We conceive, design, and build one-of-a-kind pieces and spaces that provide the highest degrees of function and aesthetics using unique, unconventional, and repurposed materials.” say Standerfer.  This will be a preview of sorts for a show he will put on the following weekend in The Warehouse Gallery.
