Lois Main Templeton: Coming Full Circle 

Jewish Community Center

Twenty-eight years ago, Lois Main Templeton had her inaugural exhibit at the JCC. She returns, in this show, with a variety of text-laden paintings. The oil/mixed media on canvas "Voices of the Violin" has, as a background, the name "Joshua Bell" written out hundreds of times in cursive script. But the much larger painted letters in the foreground, which appear to spell out Templeton's emotional response to Bell's playing, do not spell out anything comprehensible in the English language. If Templeton at all fails to capture Bell's music in words, she nevertheless captures this music's ineffable nature in her art. Another painting "Idaho Poet" (oil/mixed media on canvas) also incorporates text but you may be struck more by its hypnotic aqua-blues and its suggested representations. The Idaho of this painting is a territory located somewhere between representation and abstraction, the creative territory occupied by this Indy-based artist for the past 28 years. Through Dec. 15; 317-251-9467, www.JCCindy.com
