Regional Masters Exhibit

As you climb the grand staircase of Conrad Indianapolis you will see works by Mary Pat Wallen. Indiana native Mary Pat Wallen's sculptures are influenced by her "own reflections of human struggles and the need to achieve balance". These sculptures, predominantly crafted from bronze or resin, have the rare ability to be ambiguous regarding gender, race, and other characteristics that are often immediately identifiable in a piece of art.

Works by Amy Kirchner adorn the South Foyer. Amy Kirchner's background is in graphic design. With over 30 years of experience in the field, Kirchner has both freelanced and served as an art director for several important companies. As a result, she has worked with a host of important clients. Much as one did not know that Andy Warhol was the creator of art for corporate America in the 1950s, one might find Kirchner's creative designs in corporate America since the mid-1980s. As a graphic designer, Kirchner focused on form for three decades. That experience is evident in her abstract acrylic paintings. Using abstraction to explore forms, Kirchner's sense of balance and use of both contrasting and complimentary pallets results in compelling compositions that offer an almost Zen sense of peacefulness.

In the Elevator Lobby are works by Constance Edwards Scopelitis. Touted as one of the 'exceptional' artists of 2010 by Studio Visit Magazine, painter Constance Edwards Scopelitis began her career studying under American figurative painting legend Isabel Bishop, and continued her study alongside other notable figurative painters such as David Leffel and Peter Cox. Scopelitis' mediums of choice are oil on linen or charcoal on paper, and she specializes in contemporary figurative works. Her fine art education at Indiana University and the Art Students League in New York served as the foundation for these accolades along with museum exhibits and notable corporate collections.

Around the corner through the West Foyer hangs work by prolific multi-disciplinary American artist, Jason Myers. Myers has built upon his rich experience in different mediums, many of which he has taught at University level, and combined this experience with consistent evolution of both his style and technique. This resulted in a unique combination of traditional artistic and industrial raw materials in his current work - work in which technology is married to economics and the feeling of utter alienation haunts the figures populating the works.

Finally, in the West Foyer Alcove are works by David Michael Slonim. Born in Miami in the mid-1960s, David Michael Slonim received his bachelor's degree in illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1988. For ten years thereafter, he illustrated for clients including Wrigley's Gum, Reader's Digest, IBM and T.G.I.Fridays. Nineteen years ago, he turned to painting full time. Slonim's abstract works have been profiled by American Art Collector, Western Art & Architecture and Southwest Art. His works are shown by galleries in New York, Chicago, Boston, Scottsdale, Jackson Hole and, now, Indianapolis. Slonim's paintings hang in the permanent collections of several museums, and in important private and corporate collections. The artist and his wife Bonnie have four adult children, and live in Anderson, Indiana with a dog, according to Slonim "that matches the carpet".
