Sleeth Gallery Presents Ellen Mueller Recent Works

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Enid Series: Partners by Ellen Mueller

The Sleeth Gallery at West Virginia Wesleyan College  is proud to present an exhibition of recent and current works by Assistant Professor of Art Ellen Mueller, October 10 – November 1, 2012. An opening reception will be held on October 18 at 4:30 p.m. in the Sleeth Gallery with an artist talk to immediately follow at 6:00 p.m.

Mueller,  an intermedia artist,  focuses on humans’ resistance to change and a struggle for control. How these efforts display themselves is the subject of the works collected in this exhibition, which includes large-scale paintings and video works. Recurrent visual themes include corporate management structures, cult dynamics, and Sisyphean tasks. Although these works share many specific, personal associations and the dry sense of humor of the artist, the audience is invited to develop personal narratives and explanations for each piece.

The gallery is open Monday – Friday, 12:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. (or by appointment). The Sleeth Gallery is located on the first floor of McCuskey Hall at West Virginia Wesleyan, at the intersection of East Main Street and College Avenue in Buckhannon, WV. Admission is free.
