Solo Exhibitions

I Remember There Were Hills

Claire Hawkins Solo Exhibit

3 rd Floor Hallway

Oct 3-Dec 30

Claire Sweitzer Hawkins is a mixed media painter based in Indianapolis, Indiana. She graduated

from the Herron School of Art and Design in 2015. Nature has inspired Hawkins all of her life. She

spent her childhood swimming in lakes, digging in the earth and talking to the trees. Hawkins

creates her own worlds influenced by dreams, feelings, and memory on the canvas.

Color has also been a fascination of Hawkins’ for many years now, particularly the way memories

can feel both muted and vibrant at the same time. Mixing colors on palettes and even right on

the canvas allow her to explore and continue to learn and be surprised by color.

Hawkins’ most recent body of work has been influenced by recurring dreams. Layers of hills and

flashes of maroon on top of green are all that she remembers when waking up from one of the

repeated dreams. Water is nearby; sometimes in the form of a lake, sometimes a river. The

feeling of the dream is what starts each new painting. Once started, Hawkins paints intuitively to

finish the piece. Each brushstroke informs the next until a sense of balance is reached.

her personal work is mainly oil paintings, Kylin enjoys incorporating charcoal and graphite into

her work as creating window displays and public art. When she is not working in her studio,

sharing her love for art with kids of all ages, or creating public art, Kylin enjoys yoga and staying

active with her two children.

Thank you to all of our

volunteers and supporters!

On behalf of Garfield Park we would like to thank the Friends of Garfield

Park and Garfield Park Neighborhood Association for all that

they do to give back to our park and neighborhood. We would

also like to thank the all of our dedicated volunteers for their

efforts in helping make the Conservatory and Gardens what

they are today. Without these individuals giving their time and

talent we would not be able to offer all of the wonderful

programs that we do or maintain our historical facilities. It is

with great pride that we have such invested volunteers and

supporters!
