Blink is a unique combination of working studio and contemporary art gallery. One hour from Chicago and 30 minutes from South Bend, we are located in the historic district of Michigan City, Indiana.
Blink hosts two to four major shows a year, often inviting local and regional artists who work in a wide range of contemporary styles and media.
Richard's paintings, drawings and prints and the mixed media sculpture of Suzanne are often on display as well.
Richard is a formally trained painter, whose works are abstracted from objects in his memory. Fish hooks, puzzles, and decoy, dress or suit patterns are highly textured and become symbols to contemplate.
Suzanne’s sculptures are figurative and often informed by mythology and our uneasy relationship with nature. They are always a metaphor for the human condition.

“In the future all our data will be stored in the cloud”.
This quote filled us with wonder…
If the clouds are now filled with data, where do the dead people sit?
Have the angels and the cherubs been evicted?
How does the data get up there?
And who owns all that data?
Do we need very tall ladders to unlock the clouds and get our data? Is there a key?
Just what does the “ Information Cloud” look like?
Thus began a conversation with nine Midwestern artists and writers and the result is CLOUD9
Exhibiting artists are:
Poet & visual artist Sherry Antonini
Sculptor, Suzanne Cohan-Lange
Sculptor, Pate Conaway
Botanic illustrator, Diane Dorigan
Installation artist & performer, Julie Laffin
Painter, Richard Lange
Digital media artist, Niki Nolin
Poet, Maureen Seaton
