The Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science will soon welcome a collaborative exhibition featuring the artwork of two internationally-recognized Indianapolis artists.

Peg Fierke and Robert Eagerton: Artist in Residence will be showcased in the Museum's Old Gallery July 21 through September 15.

In addition, Peg Fierke is offering a three-day workshop that will focus on discussing and investigating many of the strategies and devices that can be used to control and manipulate space in a painting.

The workshop will take place July 29 through July 31 with morning sessions lasting from 9 to noon and evening sessions from 5:30 to 8:30.

The cost is $125 for Museum members and $150 for non-members.

Those planning to attend must register by Wednesday, July 24.

The Museum asks that you bring your own supplies.

Fierke and Eagerton have extensive national and international exhibition records and their work is included in museum collections around the country.

Both of these experienced artists began their careers using traditional printmaking methods, but have started using technology as a tool in their creations.

Each of them taught at Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI for roughly 40 years and they share a common approach to making art: a lifelong process of exploration that lets the process, rather than a preconceived end product, shape their imagery.

Eagerton co-founded Transfiguration Press in Sarasota, Florida, one of the first printmaking workshops specializing in hand-drawn lithographs, etchings and fine art photography.

Fierke has also worked outside the confines of academia, having developed interdisciplinary classes in philosophy and physiology and teaching in New York City, Europe, British Columbia, and Ireland.
