Limestone Carver William Galloway

(BLOOMINGTON) - A new special produced by WTIU Public Television introduces viewers to ten Indiana artists from across the state and celebrates the best in Indiana craftsmanship including Limestone Carver William Galloway.

Celebration in Art: Presented by The Weekly Special premieres November 27 at 6:30 p.m. Five of the artists on the show have been named Indiana Artisans (indicated with an asterisk below) - a select group of entrepreneurs who create high-quality, one-of- a-kind art and crafts.

The featured artists on the program work in a wide variety of mediums and include:

  • Limestone carver William Galloway of Bedford, whose work can be seen at the iconic Times Square Building and the National Cathedral.
  • Nashville fiber artist Daren Redman*, who designs, hand dyes, and paints her own fabric to create vivid outdoor installations.
  • Goshen's Viki Graber*, who learned willow basket weaving from her father as a child. Today, she carries on her family's tradition, but with an artistic twist.
  • First-generation woodworker and Seymour resident Pete Baxter*, who specializes in the artistic traditions of the Shaker community.
  • Chaz Kaiser* of Batesville, who after working for 20 years as a welder, became an artist and gained national recognition for his metal sculptures.
  • Christine Davis* of Fishers, who uses an unpredictable glazing process called Raku to create striking color combinations "at the whim of the Raku god" on her ceramic art.
  • Terre Haute's Bill Wolfe, whose stunning, life-size bronze sculptures can be seen throughout the country.
  • Bloomington's Jiangmei Wu, who after learning the delicate art of origami as a child, set upon a path of combining folded paper with extraordinary interior design.
  • Sayaka Ganz of Fort Wayne, who creates large-scale animalistic sculptures out of reclaimed plastic.
  • Michael Duff, owner of Berg Bows in Bloomington, who uses scientific research and state-of- the-art technology to develop the highest quality bows.

This one-hour show is an extension of "Expressions," a segment that profiles Hoosier artists on WTIU's long-running cultural affairs program The Weekly Special. The "Expressions" segment is an officially endorsed Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Project. To watch a preview from the show, visit

Viewers will also have the opportunity to join WTIU for a related art-themed day trip to the Haan Mansion Museum of Indiana Art in Lafayette. More details will be available during the premiere of Celebration in Art: Presented by The Weekly Special and online at
