"From A Different Perspective" - Hoosier Salon - Jan. 28, 2004 - 3 stars

This nonrepresentational art show is not the stuff you'd necessarily expect from the Hoosier Salon artists participating. Julie Muney Moore, Indianapolis Art Center director of exhibitions and artist services, and juror for this show, says in a statement, "I would urge those who work in this vein to look to the Hoosier Salon as a venue for promoting work of quality by all Indiana artists regardless of style or approach." I second that. This colorful exhibition is a surprise of a show and flips the bill for quality modern-minded works. Judith A. Leiviska's acyrlic abstractions of strictly color and form concoctions are executed in a painterly way. A rhythmic Synchronism-like piece - reds, fleshy pinks and orange yellows embody this exercise of artistic expression. Compared to similar works shown in the city recently, this show is above average. Well worth a visit. Through Feb. 14, 2004; 317-253-5340. -Mary Lee Pappas
