Minerva: Harmony to Hollywood: Juried by Jenn Horn
The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art in partnership with Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites/ New Harmony State Historic Site are pleased to invite you to view Minerva: Harmony to Hollywood. This exhibition will be made available virtually on nhgallery.com July 4th and in person at the gallery July 14th. Inspired by New Harmony’s own Minerva Society, Minerva: Harmony to Hollywood focuses on strong female influences spanning from local New Harmony to the limelight of Hollywood. The works selected by our juror, Jenn Horn, portray the embodiment of the goddess Minerva through the modern lens.
Jenn Horn is an Instructor in the English Department at USI and teaches a wide variety of courses including Introduction to Folklore, World Mythology, Classical Mythology, and The Body in Art and Culture. Horn is also a skater and Board Member with Evansville’s own Demolition City Roller Derby – a physical-contact sport started and inspired by strong female influences. Although not a visual artist herself, Horn’s diverse background blends visual representations and academic context into a whole picture.
Submissions were sent to the juror with all the artists’ names replaced by numbers to prevent any name bias. Submissions were then scored on a scale of 1-10 for each of the following questions: Did the submission meet the prompt? Is the piece visually appealing? Is the submission technically done well with good craftsmanship? Submissions, regardless of their visual appeal and technicality, ultimately had to meet the prompt to be considered for the exhibit.
Over fifty pieces were submitted. Of these, the Juror was asked to select thirty to be included in this exhibition. The Selected works represent twenty artists: Kateryna Bortsova, Jeanne Ciravolo, Mairead Dambruch, Christopher Dance, Virginia Derryberry, Moises Hergueta, Cedric Hustace, Iris M. Kirkwood, Evan Kisner, George Manos, Beata Marczak, Rob Millard-Mendez, Jill Miller, Nancy Raen-Mendez, Carolyn Roth, Tory Schendel-Cox, Ed Smith, Carve Stone, Rhonda Urdang and Michelle Vezina-Peterlin.
This activity made possible, in part, with support from the Indiana Arts Commission, The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
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, call 812/682-3156 or go to www.usi.edu/nhgallery.
