The Furthest Plane-Explorations in Abstraction, an exhibit four works of Joshua Welker, Assistant Professor of Art at Taylor University, is on display at Ball State University.

Welker describes the exhibit as the exploration of the distance between and relationships of domesticity (dirt, blood, stone, things that can fit through a single door) and the edge of our knowledge (trefoil knots, mobious strips, dark energy/matter, etc).

He will be giving a 15-20 minute talk along with one of the artists in the Ball State Atrium Gallery between 4:00-6:00 p.m., September 3.  

Later this month, Welker will join fellow Taylor art faculty member Suzie Dittenber to present Portmanteau at Taylor University’s Metcalf Gallery. Welker also has an exhibition (40@100 a Dada reunion) scheduled at Webster University in St. Louis. In November, he is included in the exhibit The Whiteness of the Whale at the Cultural Art Center in Columbus, Ohio.   

Welker is in his sixth year on the Taylor University art faculty. He graduated with his BFA in sculpture from Webster University in St. Louis. After completing his Masters of Arts in Theological studies at Covenant seminary, he went on to complete his MFA at the University of Texas, Austin.
