Director of New Harmony Gallery of Comtemporary Art
The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art celebrates the career of Lenny Dowhie, USI professor emeritus of art, in the exhibition "All in the Family." The exhibition includes works by the beloved professor and 21 of his former students from the University of Southern Indiana and Indiana State University, where he completed his Master of Fine Arts degree. A reception will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, November 19, during the New Harmony Art Stroll.

The exhibition will mainly feature sculptural ceramic works such as "Tie a Knot and Hang On," a three-and-a-half foot ceramic figure which hangs precariously from the ceiling, by Deborah Ball '05 of Evansville, and "Black on Black" by Mark Shoenbaum '88 of Evansville. Curtis Uebelhor '81 '94 of Ferdinand will pay tribute to Dowhie in his mixed media sculpture aptly titled "Cult of Personality." Though most of the work is sculptural in nature, the exhibition includes oil paintings by Matthew Gehring '98, now teaching and working as an artist in Brooklyn, New York.

Also included in the exhibition are works by Stephen Herron '81 of Rockport, Michael Torre of Traverse City, Michigan, Nathan Etchison and Adam Egenolf '02 of Bloomington, Greg Byard '04 of Ukiah, California, Katherine Chandler '07, John Cummings '08, Harold Roberts '98, and Randy Skaggs '99 of Evansville, Carol Schnieder Fennell '90 of Evergreen, Colorado, Nick Mason '08 of Mt. Vernon, Nelia Kimbrough of Atlanta, Georgia, Georgia Startange of Watkinsville, Georgia, Joe Hicks '98 of Sebastopol, California, Nancy McCroskey of Fort Wayne, Mark Richardson of Indianapolis, James Watkins, of Lubbock, Texas, and Beth Overfield of Anderson.

The New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art is located at 506 Main Street in New Harmony, Indiana and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and Sunday noon until 4 p.m. For more information, call 812/682-3156 or visit

This activity is made possible, in part, with support from the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
