Come to the Alley Thursday


Arts in the Alley Activities! No fooling — Thursday, April 1, is the next triple-gallery-opening-night with live jazz in Arts in the Alley at South Campus Gateway, High Street at 10th. The Arts Initiative space presents Mathematic Abstraction, new works by Carly Witmer (above), curated by Kate Dowell; the Shoebox gallery hosts a show of Columbus images called Iconic Columbus; and the Ohio Art League presents Open House, works by Allison Buenger and Colin McDonald, curated by Amy Koenig. Opening receptions are 6-9 pm. Live music from jazz quintet The Truth will add to the festive atmosphere. Drawing inspiration from Miles Davis to Pablo Picasso, The Truth is a band fueled by the works of masters of all modern art. Led by composer/saxophonist Joe Graziosi (left), it features some of the brightest, upcoming musicians in Columbus. For information, call 247-7050.

The Big Ten Network's latest O-H-I-O program features our OSU / Royal Shakespeare Company partnership and the central Ohio teachers involved in the program. Other spots on the current BTN program explore the real-life possibility of a global flu pandemic with OSU researchers and uncover the little-known habits of Cameroon land herders. Check out the TV program here.

The Lantern just posted an article about the Royal Shakespeare Company and its growing relationship with Ohio State. Read it here.

Save the Date for an ARTillery Art Talk at 7 pm on April 15. Stop by the Shoebox at South Campus Gateway and listen to local artists discuss their artwork currently on exhibit in the Alley galleries. Enjoy some pie, too, says organizer Kate Dowell.
