Muncie artist Debra Gindhart Dragoo, and her show, “Acute Sense of Assemblage” will be featured for the July IDADA First Friday Art Tour, July 1st, 6-9pm. Admission is free. Indianapolis native and chef Matthew J. Gindhart will provide food.

Gindhart Dragoo makes her return to Indianapolis, presenting her outspoken commentary and through her visual art.  “I am a spoken word artist as well, so it has been my voice and poetry flowing through the paint—be it aerosol, acrylics, or otherwise—it’s tactile and telling,” says Gindhart Dragoo. Her work will tell the story of a young girl-artist-woman, giving voice to such issues as childhood sexual abuse/the degradation of women and girls, divorce, cancer—it’s funding, research and cure, chemical effects on the planet, hunger and stardom, all told through vibrant colors sprinkled with spray art.

Debra Gindhart Dragoo worked around the Indianapolis area before relocating to Muncie, Indiana. Always outspoken and creative, she’s poured her energy, over the years, into various projects, both personal and community-wide. She’s practiced her love of spoken-word poetry at various First Thursday (Muncie’s art night) events, and has showcased her Green Glam line of environmentally friendly jewelry, which is also available at the Art Bank.

“I believe that life passes from our art. We evolved with age and, hence, our style and media evolve. My art is storytelling using strokes and spray,” says Debra Gindhart Dragoo. “My art has been fiber and paint and public. Through years of community outreach arts programming, I hold multi-generational projects close to my artist heart. This show reflects the information gathered in my different age progressions. Art is in my spirit, resounding from my soul.”
