Columbus Art News

Downtown Galleries Form Art Alliance

Downtown art galleries including Angela Meleca Gallery, CCAD's Canzani Center Gallery, the Cultural Arts Center, Riffe Gallery and OSU Urban Arts Space have banded together as The Downtown Galleries. Their plan is to promote walkability with postcard-sized maps at each gallery. Angela Meleca hopes that the collaboration will eventually lead to coordinating exhibition openings on the same night.

Wild Goose Creative hosts #wildartcolumbus

A month-long initiative presented by Wild Goose Creative, #wildartcolumbus draws together the best of social media and the gathering energy of community-driven arts. Rather than seeing the ever-presence of the internet in our everyday lives as a setback to the potential for live encounter, the philosophy behind #wildartcolumbus is that they can be symbiotic.

Each day during September, viewers of Wild Goose Creative's social media accounts will be invited to linger on and converse about art from a range of mediums, and connect with the artist as well.

The month of September, full with conversation about the work of 29 artists, will culminate in a gallery reception on September 30th in the Wild Goose Creative community art space. With #wildartcolumbus, art goes beyond the gallery but still draws people together around an arts experience. 

GCAC Presents: The Pizzuti Collection - An Insider's View of Contemporary Art

On September 6th, the Pizzuti Collection launched their new season with NOW-ISM: Abstraction Today – an unapologetically beautiful exhibition of twenty-first century painting, sculpture, video and furnishings representing the newest abstract work from today’s best artists.

September 6th was also a launch date for the collection's first film series Ori Gersht: Portraits. Three forceful video portraits connects us with stunning individuals as they pass through moments of quiet contemplation within meditatively beautiful surroundings. The Columbus Museum of Art will host Ori Gersht: Still Life, a simultaneous show of Gersht’s photography and other works on loan from Pizzuti Collection. Community collaborations continue with the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio in Lancaster, which will open an exhibition of the Pizzuti Collection’s work by the Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana this October. The exhibition celebrates the Campana Brothers’ innovative and outlandish furnishings and will open at Pizzuti Collection in February.
