IUPUI's Cultural Arts Gallery is excited to announce a juried community art exhibit that will take place in May 2014. The theme of the exhibit is “Continuing the Party”.
This exhibit honors the women in our lives by carrying forth the theme of Judy Chicago’s 1979 work, “The Dinner Party”. The 1979 “Dinner Party” is a collaborative piece that focuses on 39 women/feminine presences who have impacted world events and belief systems throughout the ages. For this year’s “Continuing the Party” exhibit, they are seeking artwork that celebrates the women in our lives - whether those women are spiritual presences, historical figures, cultural icons, or loved ones.
Ann's painting, Marie's Secret Dream will be included in this exhibit.

Japanese documentary features Ann's art
Ann collaborated on a week long documentary filming, in January 2012, with Nippon-Japan TV. They are producing a medical series based on famous people who have experienced various unusual physical conditions. Using Ann as a contemporary artist with migraines & aura, and the related Alice in Wonderland Syndrome, they connected her art with the work of Lewis Carroll, author of Alice in Wonderland, who also suffered from the condition. The program premiered in Japan in February 2012.
Ann contributed an Italian landscape oil painting to the annual fundraiser held at the Irsay home in January of 2012. All proceeds go to supporting the Exotic Feline Rescue Center.
"With over 230 exotic felines calling the EFRC home, we are one of the largest rescue centers in the United States for abused, unwanted and neglected exotic felines. Our mission is simple:
We provide permanent homes for exotic felines that have been abused, abandoned or for some reason have nowhere to live out their lives, while educating the public about these beautiful cats."
