JULY GALLERY: MORE THAN A BODY
The "More Than A Body" show invites survivors of sexual assault, rape and abuse and their allies to come together to heal and acknowledge our ever changing society through art, performances, and donations to causes who help fight for the care of survivors and their bodies.
Columbus-based artist Julia Barrett brings collections of paintings that have come alive in order to show that we are more than what we look, how we identify, who we sleep with/don't sleep with and goes to show that no one else is in control of our bodies because we are all more than our bodies.
Performances will be held throughout the night by local poets, comedians and a surprise performance at the end of the show. Food and drink will be provided. Merchandise will be sold, so bring a little extra cash to help support local artists!
A portion of the proceeds of any art sold will go to the Founder's Women's Health Center and the More Than A Body Movement.
If you, or somebody you know, have gone through sexual assault and would like someone to talk to please don't hesitate to call:
The National Sexual Assault Hotline at
The Domestic Violence Hotline at

WHITE BLOOM BLOOM
Flagging tape, chicken wire, light
The Wild Goose Creative Board of Directors purchased White Bloom Bloom in May of 2015 during the #wildartcolumbus Live Auction.
Designed and installed by Dana Lynn Harper.
Dana Lynn Harper is currently based in Columbus, OH. Her practice ranges from large installations to small paintings and sculptures. Harper is inspired by natural formations, from large landscapes to infinitesimal plankton and pollen. Using overpowering color, inviting textures and an overall multi-sensory experience, the works act as a portal to warm feelings and childhood fantasy, a social catalyst for interaction and connection. Playful patterns, dancing tinsel and unapologetic fluorescent colors are not only a testament to the beauty of life, but to the ever-encompassing joy of living. In 2014, Harper was the recipient of The ArtFile Emerging Artist Grant as well as an ArtPrize Artist Seed Grant. Last year at The Ohio State Fair’s Fine Art Exhibition, she received Best in Show as well as The People’s Choice Award. She has been an artist and residence at BUNKERprojects in Pittsburgh, PA as well as Second Sight Studio in Columbus, OH.
