January 2015: Vanishing Points



The Harrison Center for the Arts presents Vanishing Points, new work by Justin Vining. In creating this body of work, Vining has explored and embraced both the old and the new. The show incorporates paintings in his signature style - instantly recognizable whimsical cityscapes, farm houses and landscapes in oils, acrylics and watercolors employing bright, bold colors. But along side this work will be new, experimental work that assumes a wide range of aesthetics. Vining became a Harrison Center studio artist last year. An enthusiastic participant in the center’s artist community, he has sought constructive feedback in his pursuit to become a better and more well rounded creator. Much of the new work in this show is directly inspired and influenced by other Harrison Center artists.

The City Gallery presents Ephemeral Nature, encaustic prints of Indiana Wildflowers by Carolyn Springer. The work created for this show explores encaustic printmaking and the imagery of Indiana native plants.

Gallery No. 2 features 2001-2014 paintings by Ben Pines. Pines explores an inner life of thought and feeling in his meditative paintings and drawings. His work includes portrait, landscape, and figure paintings in oil and acrylic, and drawings in charcoal, pastel and pencil.

Hank & Dolly’s Gallery features Affected Color, by Herron School of Art + Design painting and photography student, Sarah Bumbalough.

Ball State Associate Professor of Painting Hannah Barnes’ work will be on display in the Gallery Annex. Barnes creates work that explores the tensions between structure, fragmentation, pattern and aberration, through the lens of abstraction.

The work hangs through January 30.
