If you missed my exhibition at Roy G Biv Gallery in November, you can check out a review here.
If you have an interest in patterns and textile design, check out this book by Kristi O’Meara and Audrey Victoria Keiffer: The Pattern Base. It was published last year and I was priveleged enough to be included.
Finally, this Saturday March 12th from 7-10pm is the opening for How Do We Get Home, an exhibit of work at Wild Goose Creative curated by the Illume Collective. I’ve been assisting Tim Lai and Eliza Ho on a speculative live-work space architectural model.

Just had my mind blown at the Wexner Center
for the Jordan Belson retrospective shown in 16 mm. This clip on the internet doesn’t do it justice. For more information about Jordan Belson, Oskar Fischinger, and other artists who worked in abstract animation, visit the Center for Visual Music
Aaron is one of my favorite Columbus-based artists. His imaginary landscapes deserve a close look, so please stop by on July 21st.
Some words from the artist:
I am currently promoting my first large-scale solo exhibition of drawings, which will be held at It Looks Like It’s Open Gallery on July 21, 2012. The gallery space acts as a studio, performance space, and workshop with somewhat irregular hours. The show will only be up for the weekend and I am solely responsible for curating, hanging, and promoting it. I have been active in the Columbus art scene for the past five years and am very excited about my current body of work. I hope to have 40-50 original pieces on display, as well as various digital and screen prints for sale. The DIY nature of this show has proven to be quite rewarding, as I have total control over content, presentation and pricing of my art, which I plan to keep reasonable. My goal is to provide art to people that may not always be able to afford “fine art” because of financial restrictions. As an artist/educator, I am familiar with with these financial struggles and hope that people in similar situations will be able to leave the gallery with a new work of art for their home. I have attached two Hi-Res Scans of work to be included in the show.

1) November 18th is our annual fundraiser, One Night. It’s at the Ohioana Library in a room as big as an airplane hangar. Art for sale (including altered books), cocktails, good music, a live auction…and only $25.
2) We are in the middle of our membership drive. New members (and members lapsed 1 yr +) will receive a free badass t-shirt. Reasons to join: 1) You are an artist or student looking for access to exhibition opportunities, workshops, networking. 2) You are an art enthusiast building your collection and looking for ways to connect with local artists. 3) Because it’s fun.
3) Artist members have the opportunity to exhibit in our gallery in the South Campus Gateway. This month we are featuring artists Jeremy Stone and Scott Neal. It’s difficult to describe their work. Jeremy creates prints; Scott has made sculptures that are carved out of the wall. Both deal with the brain’s ability to process the visual by ‘filling in the blanks’ with information from the past. Go see for yourself.
