Harrison Center’s First Friday to illustrate ideas in dream-like settings

New oil-on-linen works by Alicia Zanoni will headline the online-only First Friday, March 5, event at the Harrison Center. Zanoni’s exhibit, A Will and Away, will display a sense of moving forward, each painting being in a place traveled to in a dream. Bursts of color come through each scene bringing a sense of a hopeful journey forward. Other Harrison Center openings that day include:

– Amy Applegate debuting odds and ends in the Gallery Annex, an array of small paintings and works on paper of various mediums.The paintings predominantly depict still lives and close cropped landscapes done from looking out the windows of her home.

Renew by Jessica Green in the City Gallery. These new oil paintings of iconic downtown Indianapolis locations merge her signature modern-impressionistic painting style with abstract patterns and expressions. The paint drips and smears symbolize a washing away. While the geometric patterns of shapes and gridded dots represent the structure and support system, the ligaments of strength and hope.

– Kaila Austin presenting Saints & Icons in Hank and Dolly Gallery, a series of new mixed media portrait paintings.

– H Ward Miles with Microparticles, a new collection of abstract paintings using acrylic and gold on canvas.

Our Shot, a group show in the Underground Gallery featuring local artists celebrating the shared love of basketball during March Madness. The title also gives artists a platform to encourage Hoosiers to take vaccinations as seriously as they do basketball. 

All shows will open virtually at HarrisonCenter.org/buy-art

After the virtual First Friday, all shows are open for in-person, socially distanced visitors Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., beginning March 8. Make an appointment online at harrisoncenter.org/buy-art
