Sam Blanchard: Salutation of Courtesy
Allen W. Clowes Gallery, Indianapolis Art Center

The title, Salutation of Courtesy, refers to the fourth chapter in the seminal book on manners and personal relations, Emily Post’s Etiquette, published in 1922. In this exhibition, Blanchard examines rituals of proper manner and how these traditions are rendered in the life of the modern everyman.
