Fine Art Exhibitions by Ohio Artists
The Main Gallery is our space for group, individual and juried art exhibitions. The exhibitions, which usually last for about a month and a half, display an assortment of artistic themes and media, and feature impressive work by artists across the state of Ohio and beyond.
2020 Main Gallery Exhibit Schedule
January 10 – February 15
Originally inspired by the skeletal remains of animals, Connie Campbell has evolved an approach to sculpture in wood and metal that follows systematic mathematical ratios from the “Golden Section.” Complexity arises naturally from simple forms
Does this matɔh?
February 21 – July 4
How do the items we surround ourselves with reflect our personal aesthetic? In this series of space-specific work, Todd Camp transforms the Cultural Arts Center gallery into four intimate vignettes with painted chairs, couches, and lighting that melt into and become a continuation of the paintings on the walls behind it. Viewers get to ponder their own personal spaces and the importance placed on art and design in their lives.
Art at the Center 2020 - Faculty of the Cultural Arts Center
July 17 – August 29
The Cultural Arts Center’s faculty and staff are featured in this bi-annual exhibition scheduled to coincide with the Columbus Arts Festival. The Center’s Faculty are all professional artists, many of whom hold advanced degrees in art. Their work covers a wide range of media and styles.
September 4 – October 3
A self-described “outdoorist,” artist Sue King developed a deep passion for camping, hiking and canoeing in early childhood. Much of her textile artwork bears a message of conservation and preservation, inspired by her frequent service as Artist in Residence at numerous National Parks and other public lands.
Kristin Morris, David Leonard, and Steve Jebbett
October 9 – November 14
Three artists – Kristin Morris, David Leonard, Steve Jebbett – with three distinct yet, somehow complimentary, styles fill the Main Gallery with vibrantly colored, thought-provoking, humorous, and sometimes disturbing artworks in clay, watercolor, pen and pencil and mixed media.
Rick and Doug "The Collectors"
November 20 – January 2, 2021
Friends of the Cultural Arts Center and noted collectors, Ric Castorano and Doug Howard, share some their favorite pieces by local artists (including students and faculty of the CAC). This holiday treat is sure to inspire others to begin their collections as well.
