Sleeth Gallery
The Sleeth Gallery is located on the first floor of McCuskey Hall at West Virginia Wesleyan College, at the intersection of East Main Street and College Avenue in Buckhannon, WV.
Admission is free.

Mueller — an intermedia artist — focuses on humans’ resistance to change and a struggle for control. How these efforts display themselves is the subject of the works collected in this exhibition, which includes large-scale paintings and video works. Recurrent visual themes include corporate management structures, cult dynamics, and Sisyphean tasks. Although these works share many specific, personal associations and a dry sense of humor, the audience is invited to develop personal narratives and explanations for each piece.
