The Harrison Center presents Privileged Moments...(with everything in a row) by Casey Roberts in the Harrison Gallery. Roberts uses cyanotype chemicals, traditionally a photo process, to create "large idiosyncratic landscape paintings, man and nature trying to work it out, little magic moments."

In City Gallery: Painter Jed Dorsey’s latest show, The Sun Also Rises is inspired by Dorsey’s love of urban Indianapolis. This work focuses on the effect of light and how it transforms his view of places in the city he calls home.

In Gallery No. 2: Stitched: new fiber work by Tasha Lewis. Of this work Lewis explains, "In the past four years I explored how a collection of cyanotype photographs on cotton can be transformed into a skin for my mixed-media paper sculptures. These pieces remained the cool natural blue of the cyanotype process. Recently, I began integrating found textiles and embroidery into and around these photographic prints. This show is a survey of my discoveries. While the themes of the pieces vary, the stitch remains central. Thread is both a record of my action of making and a new avenue for added color and texture in my work. Inspired by traditional embroidery techniques, myth, art history and the power of magnets, this collection of sculptures and sewn paintings ties my love of nature with my love of making."

In the Gallery Annex: Recollection, Kristy Childress. Childress works in with a wide variety of materials, combining images of her childhood home with memories of the environments where she has resided, “resulting in landscapes that merge personal observations of surroundings, experiences of relocation, and displacement into a new territory."

In Hank & Dolly's Gallery: Dominic Senibaldi

The work hangs through September 25.
