On Friday, September 7 from 5:00PM to 9:00PM (CDT) Lubeznik Center for the Arts (LCA) and ANKO Fashions invite guests to their First Friday Art Walk event: “Friday Night Fever”. From 5:00PM to 7:00PM guests will be treated to an ANKO fashion show followed by a Disco dance party from 7:00PM to 9:00PM. Light bites and a cash bar will be available. Admission is free. This event is generously sponsored by Dekker Vacuum Technologies. Guests will enjoy a retrospective collection of high-end ’80s fashions constructed of unique fabrics with signature accents by ANKO (Anneke Dekker-Olthof), owner and designer of ANKO Fashions. For years ANKO flourished in downtown Michigan City and at ANKO ALSO stores around the Midwest. Visitors will be able to view these high end fashions glamorously displayed on models strutting through the “Warhol: Icon & Influence” exhibition. All of the garments modeled will be for sale and 50% of the proceeds will benefit LCA. Any garments not sold will be found for sale at The Closet by Franklin Vintage at 717 Franklin St. Michigan City, IN the following week. At 7:00PM the lights will dim and a Disco dance party will commence in the Hyndman Gallery, allowing dancers to “get their groove on” in the midst of Andy Warhol’s prolific work. This event is also sponsored by 95.1 FM/AM 1420 WIMS & 102.5 FM/AM 1060 WHFB. In concurrence with the event, two artists showing in LCA’s NIPSCO Education Studios will hold their opening receptions. Discover Cathy Feeman’s “Shadow and Mooring”, rooted in the mid-western middle class landscape of South Chicago and its suburbs. These painted and photo-based works are autobiographical in nature, prompted by real and inferred memories embedded in the shadows of appropriated family photographs. Feeman often employs mapping or topographical themes as metaphors for the moorings that influence the ways in which we engage with our world. In the small NIPSCO Gallery, Sara Scherberg invites guests to view her interpretations of the Zodiac using Prismacolor and ink in her exhibit “Twelve Signs of the Zodiac”. From Aries to Pisces, Scherberg creates whimsical manifestations of these ancient astrological figures. Both exhibitions will on display through September 29.
