The show runs through Thursday, August 28 at 6pm.
The Contemporary Landscape Show - June 2014
Given the indisputably strong history of landscape painting in Indiana, Gallery 924 seeks to explore the evolution of this admirable history by exploring and exposing the world of the contemporary Indiana landscape painter. How far have Hoosier artists pushed the idea of a landscape? What we found is that the resilient tradition continues, but the variety of materials, techniques, and styles seem to have no bounds. In our summer group show you will see contemporary artists paying homage to the pioneers of the traditional Indiana landscape, but you will also see new and unexpected artwork including audio and sculptural landscapes, poetry, and more. The show includes 37 central Indiana contemporary artists exploring the theme of the contemporary landscape.

Agha's work includes collaged drawings and installations that explore how social and gender-based issues result from the concepts constructed by history, traditions, and contemporary society. The complicated social issues inherent in the history and production of fiber inspire her textile processes, in particular, embroidery. The addition of traditional drawing materials with dyes, wax, coffee or tea stains invoke the history and residual memory of the feminine and domestic, and add to the depth of meaning conveyed by the drawings. The use of embroidery as a drawing medium both interacts and bridges the gap between modern materials and the historical and traditional patterns of oppression and domestic servitude. This process results in artwork that is conceptually ambiguous, producing more complicated weaves of thought, artistic action, and social experience.
Agha is a 2013 Arts Council of Indianapolis Creative Renewal Arts Fellow.
