The Krempp Gallery is a part of the Jasper Arts Center, a multi-purpose community arts center which was established in 1975. The arts center hosts a number of performances in its 675 seat auditorium every year. It also has an active in-school educational outreach program and promotes the visual arts through twelve annual exhibits, workshops, and lectures. The Krempp Gallery doubles as a lobby for the Arts Center during major events. Jasper Community Arts (JCA) is a Department of the City of Jasper.
This competition is open to any artist who is a current or former resident of Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan or Ohio.
$2,000 in Merit Awards will be presented at the discretion of the Juror.
Andy Jendrzejewski, Co-Founder of Art Space Vincennes, LLC, is a sculptor living and working in Vincennes, IN. His work ranges over many media. Over the years he has welded and cast metals, created clay figurative sculptures, constructed found object assemblages, and created temporary monumental environmental pieces in public places. He has worked with figurative, abstract, and non-objective imagery. Unlike many sculptors, Andy is a generalist in that he not only works with many sculptural media types and styles, but also with photography, painting, drawing, and collage. The label of sculpture does not always fit. Poetry might be just as descriptive.
