  • Overview

    Chromatic shapes, colors, and texture will add wonder to Four Day Ray Brewing in Fishers this Spring. Liz Hamstra’s showcase exhibit, Into the Kaleidoscope, will be a one of a kind viewing experience from April through June. 

    Liz graduated from Heron School of Art with a major in ceramics and minors in photography and art history. She began teaching ceramics in Kentucky before moving back to Indianapolis. There she taught at the Indianapolis Arts Center for about a decade. She has always loved teaching, reflecting that it became a “catalyst for my own creative process and inspiration”. 

    Starting in 2020, she has both expanded and refined her intuitive process. She notes that she’s “alway been drawn to the entire spectrum of colors,” evident by the bright geometric mandalas from recent years. Liz has no idea how a painting will look when she starts. In her current process, she starts by figuring a general shape. Then she measures small tick marks to map out the larger angles, swirls, and symmetry. Music plays a large role as well. “All of my paintings have their own soundtrack,” she says, explaining that she’ll often listen to the same few songs to really capture the emotions and atmosphere she wishes to convey.

    Into the Kaleidoscope explores dimension and refined color palettes. Liz’s recent pieces shows a more pastel range that emphasizes shapes. Gold thread sewn into the canvas also accentuates strong angles and lines. All of her pieces have no frame, allowing for the geometric designs to extend beyond borders and into imaginary space. 

    The full exhibit, Into the Kaleidoscope, 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. You can meet Liz at her free public reception on Tuesday, June 4th, from 4:30-7:30 p.m.
