ARTWORK INSPIRED BY 9/11 To commemorate the tenth anniversary of 9/11 and to coincide with the exhibit New York, September 11th by Magnum Photos, South Shore Arts is inviting artists to submit work for a unique exhibition of art that was inspired or created in response to the events of September 11, 2001. The work is not to be new work, but, rather, work that was created at the time, in direct response to the events on and surrounding that day. The work will be on display in the Atrium gallery at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts from August 12 through October 9, 2011. Due to space limitations, 2-D work can be no larger than four feet in either direction and sculptural 3-D work can be no larger than two feet in either direction. Please submit a digital image (e-mail or on disk) no later than July 1, 2011, to be considered for this exhibition opportunity. The Exhibit Committee will convene in mid-July to review and jury all submissions. Artists will be notified by July 18, 2011, as to whether work has been accepted for the exhibit. Please feel free to contact Gallery Manager Mary McClelland via e-mail at or at 219/836.1839, ext. 108, if you have any questions.


South Shore Arts will commemorate the tenth anniversary of the events of September 11, 2001, with New York, September 11th by Magnum Photographers, an exhibition of 42 color and black-and-white photographs, photo tapestries, light boxes and a large-scale, freestanding photo triptych, which will be presented in the gallery at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts from August 7 through September 18, 2011. A special commemorative event, including music and spoken word, will be presented in the gallery on Sunday, September 11, from 1 to 3pm. By now, the story of September 11, 2001, has been burned into our collective memory, but few have seen New York from the perspective of Magnum photographers. On that tragic morning, eleven members of the legendary photo agency immediately dispersed from their monthly meeting in New York to document the events as they unfolded, risking their own lives to record the incomprehensible. Their photographs, by turns haunting, surreal, and

breathtaking, are collected together in New York, September 11th by Magnum Photographers. From the photographers’ various vantage points, viewers will be transported to Ground Zero to witness the destruction of the World Trade Center and the buildings’ implosion that sent thousands fleeing from debris through the streets and their exodus out of lower Manhattan. Documented also is the photographers’ return to the scene and their quiet observation and respect for the rescue workers, whose jobs had only just begun, and for the mourners who had been gathering, struck with grief. As a tribute to the World Trade Center’s noted place in history, New York, September 11th, also includes some of the most beloved photographs of the Twin Towers taken by Magnum over the last quarter century. Magnum Photos is a photographic co-operative of diversity and distinction owned by its photographermembers. With powerful individual vision, Magnum photographers chronicle the world and interpret its peoples, events, issues and personalities. Through its four editorial offices in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo, and a network of 15 sub-agents, Magnum Photos provides photographs to the press, publishers, advertising, television, galleries and museums around the world.

Summer Exhibit features Work by Michael Chelich and the Chicago Art Salon South Shore Arts will present Reassembled: Works by Michael Chelich and the Chicago Art Salon in the gallery at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts, June 12 through July 31, 2011. The exhibit will showcase the artwork of Munster-based artist Michael Chelich, Chicago figurative artist Bruno Surdo and artist members of the Chicago Art Salon. Michael Chelich will exhibit a wide variety of subject matter including still life, portraiture, landscapes, figurative art and wildlife. Included in the show will be his nightmarish and massive allegorical figurative painting Monolith. In contrast to Monolith is his more tender and familial painting Imaginary 17th Century Family Portrait, which features two courtly dogs and three girls dressed in the ornate aristocratic garb of a bygone era. Several dramatic landscapes of the Indiana Dunes and numerous classically inspired portraits of men, women and children will also be included. Michael is represented by the Steeple Gallery in St. John. For most of the artists in this exhibit, their shared educational background in art began at the School of Representational Art (SORA). SORA director Bruno Surdo founded the school in 1992 and brought Michael on board as an instructor that same year. Originally located on the north side of Chicago, SORA later moved to River North, where it has continued its mission of training artists in the traditional methods of drawing and painting for the last 22 years. SORA’s method of training painters stretches back to the atelier of the 18th century Neo-Classical painter Jacques-Louis David. This training has strengthened the drawing and painterly skills of these contemporary artists, in addition to enhancing their conceptual capacities in the creation of evocative and meaningful imagery.

In 2002, after the completion of their training at SORA, the Chicago-based artists Craig Blietz, Shar Coulson, Amy Lloyd, Gail Potocki, Brian Sindler and Meltem Aktas formed the Chicago Art Salon for the purpose of remaining connected, while simultaneously pursuing their individual artistic paths. The members take inspiration from symbolism, figurativism and contemporary realism to create compelling and powerfully expressive paintings. Artist members in the Chicago Art Salon are all former students of Michael Chelich at SORA. Their reunion reveals the common roots of the exhibiting artists and also demonstrates how they have uniquely reassembled the basic lessons they were taught in their shared traditional background to yield their own unique artistic style. An artist reception for this exhibit will be held on Sunday, June 12, from 1-3pm. The event is free and open to the public.

A Cornucopia of Educational Arts Experiences for Teachers and Students! Educational opportunities abound for teachers and their students at South Shore Arts and the Northwest Indiana Symphony with everything from field trips to classroombased programs offered at every age level each school year. Toot ’n Doodle takes place in November at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster. The program introduces second and third grade students to the four instrument families and gives them a chance meet and work with musicians as they “play” the musical instruments. South Shore Arts instructors assist students in completing a musicinspired art project. The two-hour program meets Indiana State Standards in music and art. The annual Education Concert, Students display the “Doodle” side of held at the Star Plaza Toot ’n Doodle Theater in Merrillville every fall provides an opportunity for elementary and middle school students to attend a live orchestral music performance. Program guides contain information about the music and composers, as well as lesson plans related to the music that meet state standards for music, language arts, social studies, art, math and science. Rhythm ’n Hues uses the story of The Little Red Hen to demonstrate to first and second grader students rhythm patterns in language and music. Students try numerous percussion instruments and, in the visual art component, create their own. This program provides two hours of music, art and creativity at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in April. South Shore Arts has developed several arts-based literacy programs for the elementary classroom that meet Indiana State Standards. These one-hour programs are conducted in the classroom with all supplies provided. A copy of the book used in each program is included for each classroom to keep and use in the language arts curriculum. Polar Express workshops take place in first grade classrooms during November and December. Students are invited to wear pajamas to school on the day they create an art project based on Chris Van Allsburg’s beautifully illustrated children’s book The Polar Express. Using shapes to construct a polar landscape and train, students follow step-by-step instructions to complete an art project inspired by the book.

Students create a self-portrait based on “The Skin You Live In”

The Skin You Live In is a unique program for second graders that develops literacy skills through a message of friendship, social acceptance, and diversity. Using jaunty rhyme and colorful, quirky illustrations, the book celebrates the ways in which we are all different and yet the same. The book was written by Chicago-based author Michael Tyler, illustrated by Hammond native David Lee Csicsko, and published by Chicago Children’s Museum. Michael Recycle is a third-grade program that expands literacy proficiencies as it encourages children to care for the earth by recycling. Written by Ellie Bethel and illustrated by Alexandra Colombo, the book uses humor and verse to tell the adventures of a young superhero whose powers allow him to teach people about recycling and being “green.”

Puppeteers Jim West and Jeremy Wingle entertain with “Dinosaurs!”

Puppet shows, presented annually by South Shore Arts in the theatre at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts, feature acclaimed puppeteers Jim West and Jeremy Wingle. The pair uses a variety of puppetry styles to show children of all ages how to create their own puppets out of simple materials found around the house. Jim and Jeremy return to the Center every year in March in their hilariously educational one-hour shows, based on Aesop’s Fables, How the Elephant Got His Tail, the history of dinosaurs and other stories loaded with wit and charm. The show is an especially

good value to teachers who sign up early as they receive a free follow-up puppet workshop in their classrooms. South Shore Arts is home to four exhibit spaces in Munster, Hammond and Crown Point. Teachers can bring students to South Shore Arts galleries throughout the year at no charge. Visit the South Shore Arts Web site for a complete schedule or to book a tour. Our 2011-12 blockbuster exhibit will be American Pop, featuring artwork by Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist, Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Indiana, Red Grooms, Richard Lindner, Audrey Flack, Claes Oldenburg, Marisol, and Chryssa among others. The exhibit will be presented November 20, 2011, through January 29, 2012, in the main gallery at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster. Teachers may request a docentled tour of the exhibit, which features artists who looked at ordinary and mundane subject matter—shop signs, road signs, comics and cartoons, packaging, and mass media imagery—with a sense of irreverence and humor. This is a great opportunity for students of all ages! The annual Tri-County Junior/Senior High School Exhibition, held during April and May at the Center for Visual and Performing Arts, awards up to $7,500 in prizes and scholarships. Teachers who want to showcase their student’s art should call Gallery Manager Mary McClelland for complete details and learn how to enter. The Symphony offers students from Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Jasper, Newton and Starke counties or students taking instrumental or voice lessons from a private teacher

Available on the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War p 12,, 2011… April “Thomas Ray Crowel hits the mark with this one. Just as a sharpshooter zeroes in on his unlucky target, Crowel takes aim and leads his reader down a colorful path in the Civil War era. His skillful use of dialogue takes us to a painful, bygone time when the nation struggled with a devastating war that would decide if we would stand together or forever be divided. This is a page turner! Sit back and enjoy a great transformation to the days of Blue and Grey. It’s a journey worth taking.” — George Sheldon, author of When the Smoke Cleared at Gettysburg and Fire on The River

A soldier’s diary, as brought to life by storyteller Thomas Ray Crowel, serves as the setting for this unique and classic epic…
