INDIANAPOLIS, IN – February is, of course, the month of love, so the extraordinary artist of the Southport Artistry Committee, SoArts, are doing it up right in the form of an exhibition created with the subject in mind. The theme they are embracing is “The Art of Love”, and they will be decorating the Garfield Park Art Center in style. The artists describe their venture as follows, “Whether it be August Rodin’s “The Kiss” or Robert Indiana’s “Love” sculpture, artists have always had something to say about love. Love is a strong emotion, and is as difficult to define as art itself. Explore the concept of love, the heart, and Valentine’s Day for the month of February. Each artist interprets the concept in their own medium based on their own life experiences and feelings.”

The show will display work from SoArts members Claire Dillehay, Duane King, Katherine Han, and many more talented artists. The HEART Exhibition Opening Reception will be Saturday, February 4 from 5-7 pm, and the experts themselves will be on hand to discuss their creations. The show will run until February 25, and is free and open to the public.
