The opening reception for Two Roads: Works by Bernard Hagedorn and Deborah Hutchinson-Hagedorn will be March 17, 5:30 -7:30 p.m. at Harrison County Arts, 113 E. Beaver Street Corydon, Indiana. The show continues through May 13, 2023.
Bernard is most well-known for his monumental sculptures: “The Bill Schroeder Memorial”, located in Jasper, Indiana, dedicated to the longest living artificial heart recipient, “The Living Well”, located at the Ferdinand Community Center, dedicated to the people and history of Ferdinand, Indiana, and “Dusk and Dawn of the Twenty-First Century”, located at the Red Skelton Performing Arts Center at Vincennes University, dedicated to the victims and events surrounding the 9/11 terrorist attack.
Bernard’s sculpture involves imagery from the landscape, as well as man-made forms such as tools and architecture. He is interested in the interrelationship of nature, culture, and symbolism.
Deborah Hutchinson-Hagedorn is a printmaker who also uses watercolors with the application of collage and mixed media to create layers of color and overlapping images. Her fascination with Japanese papers – rich in color, texture, and pattern – also shape the resulting playful images. The tree is often a symbol in her work, acting as a metaphor for life and rebirth through seasonal dying and renewal. The scenes in her work invite the viewer to consider how everyday objects, like a tree, may be energized by imagination and myth.
