Some UIndy folks are marking the advent of spring with a multimedia art exhibit opening Friday at Wheeler Arts Community in Fountain Square.

A Breath of Fresh Art features paintings by Tim Maher, professor of Sociology; ceramics by Sandra Maher, adjunct faculty member in Nursing; and photography by former student Marikay Kapke as well as Greta Pennell, associate professor of Teacher Education. As the title hints, the show has been assembled around a nature theme to celebrate the change of seasons.

An opening reception is scheduled 6 to 9 p.m. Friday as part of the Indianapolis Artists and Dealers Association’s monthly First Friday citywide arts tour. Singer-songwriter Jim Pennell, associate professor of Sociology, will provide music.

The work will hang through April 30 in the Wheeler classroom/gallery, which is open noon to 4 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at 1035 Sanders St.
