Around the Bend

April 9 – June 26, 2022
Warner Gallery

Reception: May 6 | 5:00–8:00 p.m. EST
This free, public reception will be a chance to celebrate with all of the exhibiting artists. Local artist and musician, Eli Kahn will present a short live performance beginning at 6:30 p.m. EST in conjunction with his exhibition, How Are You? No, Really…How Are You?, in the adjoining Art League Gallery. The reception will also celebrate the 2021 College Residency Exhibition.


To mark the South Bend Museum of Art’s 75th anniversary, we invited South Bend area artists of all experience levels to participate in Around the Bend. Over 220 artists are included in this exhibition that reflects our diverse and vibrant visual arts community.

The artists for Around the Bend were selected from a free, open call for submissions. Any artist 18 years of age or older, living and working in St. Joseph County and and its surrounding counties (Berrien, Cass, Elkhart, LaPorte, Marshall, Starke and St. Joseph), was welcome to apply with work created since 2020. Nearly every artist who submitted work was selected for the exhibition. Many artists are already well known within our community while others will be new to visitors, including many artists who said this is the first time they have ever shared their work publicly. The artworks exhibited are varied and span painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, jewelry, installation, digital art, mixed media, 3D animation, and more. Taken as a whole, the exhibition represents a family portrait of our community and the variety of ways we view ourselves and the world around us.
