George and Ilana Debikey: A Retrospective

"George and Ilana Debikey: A Retrospective" is the title of a contemporary art exhibition at the University of Indianapolis. Over the years, the Debikeys have been creating in a variety of mediums and techniques. Working currently with raku, George has developed a style with which he is well identified. The lustrous effects on his pieces, in combination with intricate, yet free design work, make the works come alive (pictured). As a multi-media artist, Ilana maintains a very free approach to what she is doing. Her work is decorated with a large palette of vibrant colors that exhibit a high sense of beauty and design that makes every piece a one of a kind. The exhibition in the Art Gallery in the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center (adjacent to the Ruth Lilly Performance Hall on the campus of the University of Indianapolis, 1400 Hanna Avenue, Indianapolis) is open every day of the week until 8 February between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. For information, call 317:788-3253.
