I think you push as hard as you can in this field to be an individual. If you’re a groupie, you don’t make it.
That’s artist and retired professor from Indiana University’s Hope School of Fine Arts Barry Gealt. Yael Ksander sits down with him to talk about a new retrospective of his works now on display at the IU Art Museum, Barry Gealt: Embracing Nature.
One of Barry’s collectors said that it’s like he takes a piece of the earth and sticks it on your wall.
And that’s Rachel Berenson Perry, the author of the essay in the catalog that accompanies the show. She and Linda Baden, the curator of the retrospective, join Gealt in the WFIU studios.
Before that, Artwork’s Adam Schwartz speaks to Dan Wakefield, the editor of a new collection of letters by his longtime friend and fellow Hoosier author, Kurt Vonnegut.
