Stars and Stripes or Whatever

Friday, July 3 at 6:00pm - 9:00pm

The Harrison Center is excited to announce a last-minute First Friday orchestrated by its summer interns and celebrating its own strange brand of Americana!
The centerpiece of this First Friday opening is a group show in Hank & Dolly's Gallery (in the lower level of the Harrison Center). "Stars and Stripes or Whatever" will feature new work by four emerging local artists working across several mediums: Jeff Geesa, Audra McClelland, Jenny Ollikainen and Diego Yanto. The artists will offer unconventional takes on familiar motifs, documentation of alternative moments in our national history and visual observations from young explorers of Planet America.
A decidedly hard-assed craft show by the Indianapolis Craft Mafia will continue in the main gallery. Artwork by Jill Marie Mason, Herron Printmaking MFA is featured in the annex alongside pieces by local talents Scott Grow and NERS.

Visitors should expect a laid-back summer barbeque party with sparklers, sprinklers, fractured acoustic music by The No-Ops and grilling under the stars.



Please join us from 6 - 9 p.m., July 3,

To say that Cagney King is a mixed media artist would be understating it. Her
artwork combines elements of Fibonacci mathematics, astronomy, technology, poetry, journalism, paint, clothing, graphite, cement, marble powder, crumpled newspaper
and more, creating imagery ranging from still lifes to social commentary.
“Part of being an artist, in my mind, is experimenting. I am always curious about how different materials will interact with each other, and how can I push the limits of interactions on one canvas. Pushing and pulling, sweating and thinking, rushing and pausing can all lead to a favourable end.” -Cagney King

“Life Has Moments”
work by John Crowe & Joslyn Virgin Crowe
Celebrating the opening of Crowe's Eye Photography's new studio

Artist Reception in the Gallery on Friday July 3, 2009, 5-9pm.

AV Framing Gallery welcomes our new neighbor…a really close neighbor. Crowe’s Eye Photography has moved in! We are sharing our lovely space together. As a celebration, the gallery walls will display the photography of John Crowe and Joslyn Virgin Crowe!

This exhibition will feature a mix of intimate and client based work, and all within the vein of capturing that just-right, fleeting moment in life, when the photo was taken. It’s a 2-month open house, showcasing their artistry, both as individuals and as a business (photographing for others). The Crowes share their unique vision with each of their clients. You will see the overwhelming constant between the work, personal and public. Their favorites convey something special about life, about living, the moments within it… the sun, the spontaneous shots.

Please go to for more information.

BIG CAR and ARTBOX will both apparently by closed this First Friday. Of note though, ARTBOX willcontinue to keep last months exhibition, "Deliberation", up for an encore showing through the month of July. BIG CAR will reopen in August with an exhibition of work by Cindy Hinant.
