Burning Ice

The Sleeth Gallery will be kicking off its 2014 season with Burning Ice, an exhibition of photographs, drawings and performance by Assistant Professor Ellen Mueller.

Melting glaciers, mountaintop removal, and corporate politics have inspired Mueller’s most recent body of work. The creation of these works was funded in part by a Puffin Foundation grant, and completed at Nes Artist Residency in Skagaströnd, Iceland, summer 2013.

Ellen Mueller has exhibited nationally and internationally as an interdisciplinary artist working in image, performance, and installation.

Mueller was raised in Fargo, ND and currently lives and works in Buckhannon WV as an Assistant Professor of Art at West Virginia Wesleyan College. She received her MFA in Studio Art from University of South Florida, as well as a BA in Theatre and Art, and a BS in Design Technology from Bemidji State University. Additionally, she has obtained training at Dell’Arte International and the Brave New Institute. More information can be found at http://ellenmueller.com.
