Mindheaven, 2021, by Julie Wills
"Split Void" is organized around a question: can longing be divided in half and shared between two entities, or is it merely doubled? Can half the weight of desire be borne by another, thus lightening its load, or by sharing do we only magnify its effects? The context of Gettysburg College, in a place so significant to the U.S. Civil War, shaped Wills' thinking for this exhibit.

The title of the exhibition is borrowed from a print by Carrie Mae Weems, Tell Me, I Beseech You, When I Casted My Vote to You, Did I Cast It to the Wind? (1996). This work and others featured in the exhibition, including those by Judy Chicago, Kara Walker, Donna Ferrato, Käthe Kollwitz, Ana Mendieta, Kay Walkingstick, Faith Ringgold, Alison Saar, Jessica Houston, Zoë Charlton, and the Guerrilla Girls, among others prominent women artists, examine complicated issues related to identity, environmental activism, politics, and power in art. Gettysburg College students enrolled in the art history courses “Art and Public Policy” and “Art After 1945” introduce viewers to the political significance of the works and make new connections among the artists and their impulses for activism in the accompanying exhibition catalogue. Virtual Gallery Talk with Artist Jessica Houston September 16, 4 pm: Artist Jessica Houston has traveled from pole to pole—using photography, painting, oral histories and objects—to evoke entanglements of nature and culture. Her multimedia projects often include site-specific oral histories that amplify the memory of a place and evoke land as a living process. She has worked on projects involving communities and their relationship to their environments in the Canadian Arctic, Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland, and Italy.

Sandy Winters combines the mediums of printmaking, drawing, and painting to realize her mural-like constructions of an imagined future of biological plant-animal-machine hybrids. Winters earned a BS from the University of New Hampshire and a MFA from Cornell University. Her work tends to depict environments of largely abstracted forms that are forbidding yet playful and birarre yet familiar. For the last 40 years, her art has been exhibited widely in both group and solo exhibitions held throughout the United States. Some of her more recent solo exhibitions include "Sandy Winters: Creation and Destruction" at the Deland Museum; "Williamson Memorial Award: 10-Year Survey" at the Indiana State University Art Gallery; "Metamorphosis" at the Flaten Art Museum in Forthfield, Minnesota; and "In My Back Yard" at George Adams Gallery in New York City.
