Artists' Talk

Columbus - This Saturday, May 30th, ROY G BIV Gallery in the Short North will host an Artists' Talk for our six 2015 Award Finalist. The event will begin at 2:30 pm and you can RSVP here.

Our six finalists, from left to right, Audrey Nation, Catherine Stanley, Lauren Hector, Lauryn Olivia King, Sarah Rose Lejeune, and Justine Neuberger. 

Artists and recent graduates from various independent Ohio colleges and universities will talk about their pieces in a walkthrough of the exhibition. This will be the last chance their artwork will be available for viewing at the gallery.

It is encouraged to bring questions! This is a great way to engage with the artists directly about their work and learn more about their creative process.

Here are some sample questions to ask the emerging artists:
  1. Is there a piece here that you are particularly proud of? And why?
  2. What inspires you? What inspired this piece/idea?
  3. What is your most important artist tool? Is there something you can't live without in your space?
  4. How did you start making art?
  5. Why do you make art?
  6. Is there an element of art you enjoy working with most? And why?
  7. What message were you hoping for with this piece/idea?



  1. Superb article!! Hey, Can you please share all the information of event locations and process for participating? My daughter would like to take part in this Art Competition.

    1. Thanks! Our student's are nominated by deans and chairs of the art departments from the independent colleges and universities in Ohio. If your daughter attends one of the institutions (listed in the far right tab above) and she is going to be a senior this upcoming Fall she can talk to her advisor about being nominated!
