SPOTLIGHT Artists Gallery Exhibit 

3 stars

Clowes Hall

One thing that occurred to me as I walked through the Clowes Lobby, looking at the art in this exhibit, is that there are a bewildering number of choices that confront an artist in terms of choosing the appropriate media. This can be a good thing if the media the artist chooses helps her achieve her vision. Vandra Pentecost's "Autumn's Remembrance of Spring" shows a young woman in profile, in a contemplative pose and in a natural setting. She is drawn in red ink—using computer technology—in a style that evokes the tradition of Japanese printmaking. With this and her other work on display here, Pentecost is largely successful in translating her vision into compelling prints. The work of Larry Ladig is not quite so successful. His perfectly fine photograph "Tea House," printed on acetate adhered to canvas, has bubbles and cracks that result from this process. The fact that these effects are intentional doesn't make them any less distracting. Through May 24; 317- 940-9697,
