Has worked with PMHS; UIndy
A former 35-year art teacher and department head at Perry Meridian High School, Bredemus is an adjunct professor at the University of Indianapolis, where she teaches education classes to future art instructors. She has degrees from Northern Illinois University, Herron School of Art and Indiana University and is a member of the Hoosier Salon.
Bredemus said her work tends to focus on experiences that affect everyone: gorgeous colors, bits of humor and poignant and happy moments. Her current projects include commissioned oil paintings, acrylics, commercial art, book illustrations and acrylic resin pieces.
“I have always had a need to create, explore and invent the world through visual means,” she said. “This curiosity has led me in many directions, but painting in one medium or another is where I seem to find the most frequent expression.
“Recent pursuits have led me to explore new media through old stories and myths, as well as psychological traits such as loneliness, strength or joy through surface texture and color. I believe that the important things in life should be exploited, revealed and preserved by using talents that were given to us as a gift.”
An open house to view her work will be held from 5-9 p.m. Friday at the league, 299 E. Broadway St., Greenwood. The gallery is open from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
