The Ceramic II Class of USI Fall 2022 Presents

The Lamp Project

A Student-Driven Exhibition Exploring Light-Based Ceramic Objects

November 12 - December 17, 2022

BG Projects (at New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art) is proud to present The Lamp Project, a group show featuring ceramic installations by University of Southern Indiana's Ceramics II students. Artists include Ashley Banks, Lunar Bowen, Caro Burks, Elizabeth Garland, Zoe Lawrence, Mia Mitchell, Katherine (Kassi) Norton, Katelynn Roy, Jaeda Thompson, and Leanne Werkmeister. The exhibition opens with a reception on Saturday, November 12 from 4:00 - 6:00 PM Central. The Lamp Project will be on view from November 12 – December 17, 2022, with gallery hours from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM Central, Tuesday – Saturday.

The Lamp Project is an experimental student-driven exhibition that explores functional ceramics through the material of light-giving objects. The Lamp as a form provides a useful touchstone to explore the aesthetic values of the handmade and the more familiar aesthetics of consumerism and material culture. Ranging from the cute, the kitsch, the hungry, the romantic, and the occasionally austere, each individual contribution offers a thematically playful and unique approach to both form and content.

New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art is dedicated to enhancing the experiences of students through an artist-run exhibition space in the Back Gallery. BG Projects at NHGCA allows students to exhibit, experiment, and/or curate within a working contemporary art gallery setting. Through exhibition and curatorial strategies, students can envision new possibilities for collaborations and their art practice.

New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art promotes discourse about and access to contemporary art in the Southern Indiana region.
