The Art Museum of Greater Lafayette opens a new exhibit, Status: Fluid/Dynamic this month. WBAA's John Clare spoke with artist Jason Myers, a native of Logansport, about his work, showing in Indiana, and describing his style.

Learn more about the exhibit opening May 10th here. Jason will speak at the museum in August.

Jason Myers is a prolific multi-disciplinary American artist with studios in Indiana and the Netherlands. Myers received his bachelor’s degree from the Kansas City Art Institute and his MFA from American University.

Myers has built upon his rich experience in different media, many of which he has taught at University level, and combined this experience with consistent evolution of both his style and technique. This resulted in a unique combination of traditional artistic and industrial raw materials in his current work – work in which technology is married to economics and the feeling of utter alienation haunts the figures populating the works. His artwork invites the use of such materials as steel, resin and computer generated prints. Complex, layered and exquisitely executed, Myers’ work often questions our current political and socioeconomic environment.

John Nasukaluk Clare is comfortable behind a microphone, streaming video or playing violin. A former broadcaster for NPR, John has previously worked with Voice of America, the Canadian Broadcast Corporation and stations in Texas, Kansas, Nevada, California, and Pennsylvania. In 2005, Clare earned the Deems Taylor Award from ASCAP for radio broadcasting, citing his work on 20/20 Hearing. Having performed with famed tenors Luciano Pavarotti and Andrea Bocelli, John has worked with the Mozart Festival Texas, Mid Texas Symphony, Nevada Chamber Symphony, Shreveport Symphony, Abilene Philharmonic and Wichita Symphony Orchestra.
