We are pleased to announce a 2-man exhibition featuring artworks by John Mellencamp and Robert Rauschenberg. The exhibition, Binding Wires will open at ACA Galleries on Thursday, October 24, 2019 in New York. This exhibition investigates the dynamic juxtapositions of two bodies of work: Mellencamp’s sculptural assemblages and portraits alongside Rauschenbergs’s mixed media artworks.
As Mary Lynn Kotz writes in her essay, born in the 20th century, a generation apart, Robert Rauschenberg and John Mellencamp are driven by the art imperative.
Southern Indiana Center for the Arts (SICA) is pleased to announce its October exhibit, Mellencamp: Three Generations of Art, which will feature works from John, Marilyn and Speck Mellencamp.
Opening October 2, the paintings will be on display through November 2.
This exhibit is sponsored by JCB and will feature many newer works from John including his striking mixed media mirrors from the Millican and Vickery collections. Also, featured will be more paintings from Marilyn, John's mother who painted at SICA as a part of the Wednesday group which still meets at the center to this date. Rounding out this great family show will be the work of Speck Mellencamp, who graduated from Rhode Island School of Design earlier this year.
