The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art is hosting a new exhibition, Middle Ground, April 14 through May 25. An opening reception will be held at the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, April 14 during the first art and antique stroll of the year. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
The exhibition features the work of Kate Burnet, Amelia Volwiler-Stanley and Dan Woerner from Bloomington, Indiana. Dan Woerner and Kate Burnet construct narratives through their animated videos, drawings and installations by weaving together memories of the past with our prospects for the future from fragments of pop culture and other detritus. Through their work, viewers are invited to contemplate the darker corners of the everyday experience.
Burnet and Woerner met in a theory and practice art seminar class at Pacific Northwest College of Art. They were randomly assigned to collaborate on a project. The couple traveled to India, Thailand, Vietnam and finally set up shop in New York City until 2015. They then moved to Bloomington, Indiana, where they currently reside.
Amelia Volwiler-Stanley is a Grand Rapids, Michigan-based artist, currently teaching and pursuing a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture at Indiana University Bloomington. Primarily, Volwiler-Stanley works in printmaking and installation, quite often combining the two, with her keen interests in women's justice and liberation. She completed her undergraduate studies in sculpture and installation at Hope College in Holland, Michigan.
This exhibition is possible through the generous support of the Efroymson Family Fund, the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art is an outreach partner of the University of Southern Indiana. The gallery is located at 506 Main Street in New Harmony, Indiana. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, contact Garry Holstein, director, at 812-682-3156 or go to USI.edu/nhgallery.
