The Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Ohio (AICUO) will be hosting a Walking Exhibition throughout the Short North during the May Gallery Hop. In addition to their May exhibits, nine Short North businesses will display works from the grand award winner and other finalists of the AICUO Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts. Locations include:
Brandt-Roberts Galleries will feature "Artistic Verve" during the month of May. The exhibit will include the two dynamic artistic visions of Maria Alejandra Zanetta and Janet Grisssom. Zanettta creates bold, colorful interpretations of urban spaces and abstract forms in the linocut and collage medium. Working in oils, Grissom produces vibrant, heavily textured landscapes and seascapes that are memorably tactile.
The show will run May 3 - 26, with an opening reception Friday, May 3, 5:30-8:00PM.
Sherrie Gallerie will feature the ceramic work of artist Julie Woodrow during the month of May. Julie is an artist as well as an art teacher at Worthington Kilbourne High School.
Woodrow throws her form on the potters wheel, then spends hours carving the surface. The work is then either Raku-fired or glazed with sumptuous color and then fired. Join us at Sherrie Gallerie for an artist reception during the May Gallery Hop 5-7PM.
Roy G Biv gallery exhibits works from Nicole Crock and David King for the month of May. Join us at the opening reception during Gallery Hop May 4th and again for the artists' talk Saturday May 25th 2:30PM.
Artist Annette Poitau exhibits "A Study in Color" at Marcia Evans Gallery through May 25, 2013.
A French-born American painter, Annette received her MFA with honors from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Arts Decoratifs in Paris and also studied in New York.
This solo show represents bold new abstracts, rich in color and texture, and grounded in dynamic natural forms representative of the earth and elements of the human body. Annette explores a technique that is analogous to the geological processes of sedimentation and erosion that help to shape the earth.
Studios on High Gallery presents "The Potential of Pastel," an art exhibit by pastel artist Sandy Reddig and polymer clay jeweler Jeanette Kandray.
Pastel works by Sandy Reddig include portraits that celebrate the beauty, character and personality of our family generations and community along with pastel landscapes and still life.
