The Southside Art League Inc. will display the works of the late Indianapolis print maker and art scene founder Ed Funk through the end of the month.
A retrospective sampling of more than 20 of Funk’s prints and paintings are hanging at the SALI Off Broadway Gallery, 299 E. Broadway, Greenwood.
Funk (1943-2013) was born and raised in Indianapolis. While serving in the Navy from 1975 to 1982, he traveled the Pacific Ocean, Japan, Thailand and the Middle East.
He graduated Herron School of Art in 1988. His time in Japan greatly influenced his approach to art, especially his calligraphic brush work.

In 1995 Ed Funk bought Dolphin Papers and moved it to the old Murphy storefront in the Fountain Square neighborhood, helping establish First Fridays in the Indy Arts Scene.
He was known for encouraging artists he met — both novices and accomplished professionals.
Funk is remembered most for his large, colorful abstract paintings in different media and for his exquisitely detailed prints.
Visit the gallery during regular hours 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays; call the studio to arrange viewing by appointment at any other time.
