Columbus, OHThe OAC Riffe Gallery presents Come Along With Me, January 26 – April 15, 2017. Curated by Richard Fletcher, associate professor in the Department of Classics at The Ohio State University, this is the fourth curated collaboration between the Riffe Gallery and Ohio Art League (OAL). The selected artworks represent a range of media from painting, sculpture, photography, video, and site-specific assemblages.

Fletcher has dedicated his recent research and teaching practices to how ancient literature, philosophy, and mythology can be reactivated through contemporary artistic practices. Fletcher asked artists how their experiences shape their artwork, and like the handbooks by ancient philosophers, how their artwork communicates life lessons. Come Along With Me brings together a selection of OAL artists at different phases of their careers and lives.
