Opening Reception: Friday, March 17th, 5:30-7:30pm
Please join us at Harrison County Arts for the opening of “Two Roads”, an exhibit featuring works by sculptor, Bernard Hagedorn, and printmaker, Deborah Hutchinson-Hagedorn.
Bernard is most well-known for his monumental sculptures: The Bill Schroeder Memorial, located in Jasper, dedicated to the longest living artificial heart recipient, The Living Well, located at the Ferdinand Community Center, dedicated to the people and history of Ferdinand, Indiana, and Dusk and Dawn of the Twenty-First Century, located at the Red Skelton Performing Arts Center at Vincennes University, dedicated to the victims and events surrounding the 9/11 terrorist attack.
Bernard’s sculpture involves imagery from the landscape, as well as man-made forms such as tools and architecture. He is interested in the interrelationship of nature, culture, and symbolism.
Deborah Hutchinson-Hagedorn is a printmaker who also uses watercolors with the application of collage and mixed media to create layers of color and overlapping images. Her fascination with Japanese papers – rich in color, texture, and pattern – also shape the resulting playful images. The tree is often a symbol in her work, acting as a metaphor for life and rebirth through seasonal dying and renewal. The scenes in her work invite the viewer to consider how everyday objects, like a tree, may be energized by imagination and myth.
