Liz Naumann at the Athenaeum Art Space

A wine and cheese reception marks the opening of the exhibition of the art of Liz Naumann.

The event takes place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. tomorrow (7 September) in the Athenaeum Art Space, 401 East Michigan Street, Indianapolis. It's open to the public at no charge.

A German artist from Gutach/Breisgau in the Black Forest, Naumann brings the art of Heimat to the Athenaeum. Her paintings of rural farmhouses, landscapes, Fastnacht (Fasching) masks and little chapels are full of vibrant color. Included are numerous images from Freiburg, the Black Forest and, in particular, Pfaffenweiler -- the ancestral village of many Hoosier Germans (especially in Jasper).

The exhibit will continue through September. For more information, contact the Max Kade Center, 317:274-2330.
