Harter deals with gender, sex, myth, and allegory, depicting worlds populated by hedonistic lesbian witches and ruled by cartoon logic. Taking form in painting, print, fabric, and ceramic, her work centers the queer body as it engages in intimacy, ritual, and gathering.

Equally influenced by convergent backgrounds in printmaking and art history, Harter is interested in: process, repetition, and community; the spiritual potential of craft; allegory as a tool of direct and indirect communication; timelessness and permanence, as imparted by myth; utopia (or world without men).

Harter has shown nationally while completing her bachelor’s degree in Studio Art and Art History at Oberlin College.
