The Ohio Arts Council’s Riffe Gallery will present HERE and Beyond: Ohio Art League’s 100th Anniversary Exhibition from July 30 – October 25, 2009. Curated by Margo A. Crutchfield, senior curator, Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, this exhibition employs an array of media including painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing, fabric and quilt works, installation and photography.
The 16 artists in this exhibition deal with the concept of HERE, not only the notion of locale and origination, but that sense of immediacy of place and time fused with reaching for the beyond.
Featured artists include Sandra Aska (Columbus), Carol Boram-Hays (Columbus), Denise Buckley (Richmond Heights), Mary Fahy (Columbus), Sarah E. Fairchild (Columbus), Matthew Friday (Athens), Curtis W.M. Goldstein (Columbus), Nicholas Hill (Granville), Morris Jackson (Columbus), Ardine Nelson (Columbus), Brent Payne (Oxford), Stephanie Sypsa (Columbus), Alicia Jean Vanderelli (Columbus), Barbara Vogel (Columbus), Melissa Vogley-Woods (Columbus), and Tom Ward (Columbus).
