Juliana Burrell Art Exhibit – Original Acrylic Paintings

This art show is dedicated to our journey through life as we experience and process love and loss.

OPENING NIGHT – On opening night we will begin a community painting of LOVE, LOSS, REMEMBERING & LETTING GO (depending on your Love and Loss journey). You will have the opportunity to honor a loved one, remember a lost one, or let go of someone or an experience in a simple, beautiful and meaningful way.

Opening night is February 7th, 5:00pm-8:00pm.

The show runs Jan 31st – Feb 20th.

BIO – I was born & raised in South America until I was 17 years old. After completing multiple degrees at Indiana University, I joined a professional circus troupe as an aerialist and toured nationally for many years. After touring, I returned to Indiana and began work as an Artist, Art Educator and opened Asabela Studio, a Circus Arts School and now an Adjunct Professor at Indiana University Department of Theatre Drama and Contemporary Dance, teaching Aerial Dance.

My artwork reflects passion and whimsy, love and relationships, fascination and emotion. I feel grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to experience a beautiful and colorful life in Brazil, the magic of circus life, the love of family and wonder of becoming a parent, and the pleasure of learning and teaching.

Doreen McCarthy Exhibition

06:00 pm to 08:00 pm
The Republic Building
https://events.iu.edu/soaadiub/view/event/event_id/104843

The Indiana University J. Irwin Miller Architecture Program presents Doreen McCarthy in the gallery at The Republic Building (333 2nd Street, Columbus, IN 47201).

An opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 9 from 6:00-8:00 pm. The exhibition will run from April 9 – May 5, 2020.

The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.

Doreen McCarthy’s Artist Statement:
“My work is a consequential step of giving form to space and imagination. The sculptures are about how to change something in a way that keeps the before, after and intervening transformation equally visible the transformative abilities of art-condensation of materials, context, community and intent-are the core of my art making practice. Perceptions of art can be considered and understood within the milieu of one’s environment and as a paradigm of culture. Specific site projects inform the development of my new sculptures as the history of each place provides context for the image, scale and material within the public or private domain.

My production often appears to present aesthetic oxymoron’s that occupy both sides of formal and conceptual oppositions such as material versus effect. I am currently developing sculptures that continue to circumvent barriers of spatial articulation.

I have worked with non-traditional materials employing corrugated cardboard, inflated plastic, nylon and Plexiglas both in the studio and with the aid of industrial fabricators. I explore scale, building and modeling of objects, translucency and the absence and presence of objecthood.

Physically shifting the scale, material and site alters the subjectivity of experience. My current work is intended to further incorporate this dialogue and apply it to a larger, public space designed to change the way we are informed by and see the world we live in, questioning the notions of perception and how the conversation between timelessness and static objecthood may be renegotiated.”
