Craig Mullins is no stranger to Noblesville Creates - 2024 marks his eighth year participating in community and showcase level exhibits. For many years he has showcased his work in the Stephenson House and Meyer Najem galleries, and now he moves onto Four Day Ray’s unique gallery experience.
MY INDIANA will debut at Four Day Ray in January, featuring his latest piece, “Big Sky Indiana.” Landscapes are truly where Mullins’s architect background shines through – especially in farm and barn compositions. His landscape paintings have architectural elements as part of the subject matter, as well as images from travel and hiking experiences all over the world.
“Creating an atmosphere of time, space and color that cannot be captured in a photograph, or through personal observation, is an important characteristic of my work,” says Mullins.
Mullins is particularly drawn to French Impressionist artists such as Claude Monet and the Hoosier Artists who flourished in the early 1900’s, as well as contemporary landscape artists.
“Much of their work tends to be landscapes that explore light, color and the atmosphere of the moment in a way that compels your attention for long periods of time,” he says. “That is what I am trying to achieve in my own way as an ARCHITECT-ARTIST.”
The full exhibit, MY INDIANA, can be seen at Four Day Ray Brewing, located at 11671 Lantern Road in Fishers, Sunday and Monday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Friday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
