ARTillery is seeking submissions for Iconic Columbus, an exhibition of artworks that capture the essensce of our city. For complete information and to submit an application please visit www.artilleryohio.com. Deadline to apply is March 10.
ARTillery's March featured artist is Bobby Rosenstock, whose exhibition in the Shoebox opens Thurs, March 4, 6-9 pm. The exhibition of Rosenstock's work continues until March 27.
Rosenstock runs a letterpress shop, Just A Jar , in Marietta, Ohio. His large-format woodcuts and artist books evoke a quality of modern mythology and storytelling. With an old-fashioned, raw style and a bit of quirky humor, his unique prints speak of his process while channeling philosophy, history and science.
On that same evening -- March 4, 6-9 pm -- in Arts in the Alley at South Campus Gateway, the Ohio Art League gallery opens a new exhibition of works by Larissa Mellor, curated by Nicole Langille. And Heroes and Legends, an exhibition of new works by Adam Brouilette, continues in the Arts Initiative space.
