OPENING SOON!

 

The Ohio Arts Council’s Riffe Gallery Presents:

 

 

Quilt National '21:

The Best of Contemporary Quilts

Produced and circulated by The Dairy Barn Arts Center

Jan. 29 - April 8, 2022

 

The works in a Quilt National exhibit display a reverence for the lessons taught by the makers of the heritage quilts. Many of the works hold fast to the traditional methods of piecing and patching. At the same time, however, the Quilt National artist is intrigued by the challenge of expanding the boundaries of traditional quiltmaking by utilizing the newest materials and technologies. These innovative works generate strong emotional responses in the viewer while at the same time fulfilling the creative need of the artist to make a totally individual statement.

 

Media support is provided by CD92.9CitySceneOhio Channel, Ohio Magazine, and WCBE 90.5 FM.

The 2020-22 Ohio House of Representatives High School Student Art Virtual Exhibition 

The Ohio House of Representatives High School Student Art Exhibit, also known as “The 99 Show” is a collaboration with the Ohio House of Representatives, the Ohio Arts Council and the Ohio Art Education Association to mount a student exhibition representing all 99 House Districts in the State of Ohio. The exhibition recognizes the talents, creativity and innovation of students who receive high quality arts education instruction as part of their academic experience in school. It represents art by some of Ohio’s finest high school artists.

The biennial show is displayed in the Statehouse walkway that connects the Riffe Center to the Statehouse in Columbus. This is the same passage legislators take to and from their offices every day. It is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the great work of our art students to their representatives in state government.
