The 9th Annual Ohio Online Visual Artist Registry Juried Show is up and running
The exhibit is being held at the Columbus Metropolitan Library in downtown Columbus.
This library is one of many lovely edifaces built by the Carnegies. Stone steps, fancy ironwork and beautiful floor tiles grace the structure throughout.
The second floor is flooded with light from stained glass skylights framed by roman arches…..
…and large, elegantly shaped windows.
It is a perfect place for resting awhile and contemplating art.
My three-part piece “Battledore and Shuttlecock, the Game of Love” was accepted.
Photographer and friend Bob Studzinsky contributed this moving Mayan-themed piece entitled “To Honor the Fallen.”
My work looks a bit lost but James Mellick’s foreground piece, “Ghost Dog 2012” is a standout.
Another interesting Mellick effort is “Black Figure With White Leeches.”
Other appealing works are Kent Krugh’s photographs of trees….
Nancy Weymouth Halbrooks’ “Polar Vortex Crows”…..
V Pic Michel’s “Actions Speak Louder Than Words”…..
….and Curtis Goldstein’s “Standing in Water.”
This last follows a trend I’ve been noticing a lot lately: works which work better in prints and photographs than in real life. Up close, the piece is a bit rough, but processed via technology it’s as polished as can be. The bright screen doesn’t so much document reality as make it.
