Recent Local Art Events

Me with "Pansies" a fabric mosaic that I dontated to the auction.

Last Friday night, Apr. 29, was the Dayton Visual Art Center's Annual Art Auction, held at Sinclair Community College. There was food, wine and lots of art.  I really enjoyed seeing the outfits and jewelry that people wore, very artistic.


Me with "Fireflies" and some other wonderful art at the ODC Best of 2011 reception.


Two days later on Sun., May 1 we went to the Ohio Designer Craftsmen's Best of 2011 artist reception at the Ohio Craft Museum in Columbus.

My piece, Fireflies, is the large black and gray piece in the photo.  It was hung inside a glass display case from fishing line so it looked like it was floating.  There were some black and white and gray pieces in the display case and they all worked together very well.  By being in the case, my piece had a lot of light on it, which really made it stand out and sparkle like, well, Fireflies.

There is a lot of really great work in the show including several other wonderful fiber pieces.  The show will be at the Ohio Craft Museum, 1665 W Fifth Ave. in Columbus, until June 19.  Hours are Mon.-Fri. from 10 am-5 pm and Sat.-Sun. from 1-4 pm.

The show then travels to the Southern Ohio Museum, 825 Gallia Street in Portsmouth, Ohio from July 8 to Aug. 27.  Hours are Tues.-Fri. from 10 am-5 pm and Sat. from 1-5 pm.

Then the show travels to the School of Art Gallery at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio from Oct. 11 to Nov. 11.  Hours are Tues.-Fri. from 11 am-5 pm.

If you can't make it to any of the shows, or if you want to see a preview, the Ohio Craft Museum has all the Best of artwork on their website.
