An opening reception for the exhibit will take place from 3:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10, with an artist’s talk scheduled at 5:30 p.m. Regular gallery hours for the show are Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday, 2 to 8 p.m.; and Wednesday and Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. All exhibits are free and open to the public.

Originally from California, Harper maintains a studio practice in Millville that includes drawing, sculpture, installation and public art projects. Her upcoming exhibit features large-scale drawings on paper that reinvent the traditional landscape.

“Since my move to Pennsylvania, I have been interested in the lay of the land and have explored this idea in a series of drawings informed by topography,” Harper said of the exhibit.

Harper has earned many awards, grants and fellowships, including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2005. She has completed residencies in California, Nebraska and Belgium, and she frequently offers lectures. Her work is found in collections across the United States.

Harper earned a master of fine arts degree from California College of Arts and Crafts and a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design in Los Angeles.
