Fendig at the Fendig
The current exhibit at the Fendig Gallery in the Carnegie Center is from their permanent collection and consists mostly of works by Lillian Fendig (1912-1985). She was born and educated in England, where she met Ralph Fendig of Rensselaer during WWII. She moved to Rensselaer in 1948 and was active in the Indiana art scene. Among the works on display is are eight from an 11 picture series that she did in 1970 for the fiftieth anniversary of Rensselaer's Kappa Kappa Kappa sorority. They were displayed in Grants Fashion after the anniversary. Given by Orpha Grant to Tri-Kappa, Tri-Kappa in turn donated them to the Prairie Arts Council.
