Teachers’ photos to be displayed


We’re suckers for original art of all mediums, and so we’re pleased to tell you that two Noblesville Schools educators have had their works selected for exhibit at Nickel Plate Arts, 107 S. Eighth St., Noblesville. Darlene Patterson, a photographer and an art teacher at Promise Road Elementary School, and Carol Land, a photographer and calligrapher and speech pathologist at Noblesville East Middle School, will display what their lenses captured in diverse reaches of the globe.  The exhibits run Jan. 3 through Feb. 8. Lilly Endowment Teacher Creativity Grants funded the travels of the two artists. Patterson, a two-time recipient of the grant, traveled to Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic to participate in the Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association Festival. While there, she engaged children of Iqaluit in a photography project and she kayaked in Sirmilik National Park. She will display her own photographs and also share work from Promise Road’s spring photo club and the children of Baffin Island. Land, who long has had a passion for calligraphy, traveled to England and Paris, where she visited abbeys and museums and studied calligraphy in order to refine her lettering, master new artistic techniques, and personalize her writing. Her display will feature photographs from her trip and also samples of her calligraphy. For more information about the center, please visit www.nickelplatearts.org.
