Domont Studio Gallery
Jennifer Complo McNutt, curator of contemporary art at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, moonlights as an artist and a dog trainer. Put all three talents together and you have Art's Gone to the Dogs, an exhibition Complo McNutt guest-curated at Domont Studio Gallery with the help of a Ford Foundation grant and the Eiteljorg. Complo McNutt corralled work from Native American and non-Native American artists who addressed the beloved human companion through various visual art media: from sculpture to weaving to painting. Complo McNutt's own large-scale charcoal drawings lovingly and fluidly render one of her own dogs, while Barbara Fields Timm offers a richly hued, dreamlike forest scene of many dogs, a sort of human-free utopia. Other artists, many known to fans of the Eiteljorg, particularly its biannuall Fellowship program and New Art of the West, include Rick Bartow (Wiyot of Northern California), Jose Delgado-Costa, Sally Delgado, Marty Gradolf, Jennifer Herrold, Mike Jester, Aidi Kansas, Lucinda Kirk, Truman Lowe (Ho Chunk), Phil O'Malley, and Margaret Warner. On the whole a delightful show, the work is as diverse as there are species of dogs. New works by John J Domont are also on display. Through Dec. 20; 317-685-9634.
