The James Sanders Gallery Fellowship is a one-year fellowship to support students interested in exhibition design, publicity, curation, and management at an art gallery through supervised applied training at the Kenneth P. McCutchan Art Center / Palmina F. and Stephen S. Pace Galleries on the USI campus and the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art, located in historic new Harmony, Indiana.
Theanoe Christos completed her fellowship at the gallery during the spring of 2017. During this time, she created the proposal for the exhibition, recruited artists, and established guidelines for the show.
Additionally, Christos created a comic strip called Utopia documenting her experiences in New Harmony which will also be on display as part the tell your own story aspect of the show. For this component, visitors to the gallery will have the opportunity to create their own illustrations to be displayed throughout the duration of the exhibition.
This exhibition reflects the curatorial strategies of the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art in that all shows are selected based on the three primary goals of providing opportunity, the creation of dialogue, and building connectivity within the region.
The exhibition is free and open to the public.
This activity made possible, in part, with support from the Indiana Arts Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and the Vanderburgh Community
