The coming weekend is calmer and a little more laid back than last weekend’s frenzy of activity with so much going on with the Arts’ Fest and Franklinton but there are some fun things to get into. I’m happy to say that I will be exhibiting as part of the Snack Time show to open this Friday at Tacocat so please come out and see me! More to do than that, too, so check out your options!

Arts Initiative OSU

Hilary Nicole Reed presents an interactive public activity utilizing photographic printing and a lunchtime picnic. Participants are invited to have a picnic on a piece of sensitized fabric, leaving imprints as they sit, stand, and lay on the piece. After developing the print, participants are invited back to the space for an artist talk, group discussion, and reflection.
Duration of Exhibition:
Tuesday, June 16, 2015 to Friday, June 19, 2015
Tacocat Collective Gallery
Friday June 19th
Join us for Snack Time, a celebration of food and art. The reception will be a large potluck presented by the exhibiting artists. Over thirty artists (including ME!) will be displaying their version of snacks/food with food that ‘matches’ their pieces! Should be lots of fun so come out and support all of us!
Amber Groome/ Morri Jackson
Friday June 19th
Two of Lindsay Gallery‘s longtime gallery artists are coming together for this show of new work.
Morris Jackson‘s detailed drawings with microscopic patterns share obsessive yet humanistic qualities with Amber Groome‘s lovingly constructed doll and skull sculptures. This year Jackson was honored with the Ohio Arts Council’s Individual Excellence Award, and Groome’s work was featured at the 2015 New York Outsider Art Fair.
Shirts, totes, pillows, hats — you name it, you can print on it. And people LOVE that stuff! In this class you will learn the screen printing process; from image selection to burning the image on the screen.
We’ll supply everything you need including pre-made screens to use, ink, and two (2) t-shirts for you to print on. If you would like to try your hand at transferring design on additional items — Ts, totes, pillow-cases, etc. — you may bring additional items. Make sure they’re at least 10″ x 10″ and are light in color. Also feel free to bring drinks or snacks if you want ’em. Be sure to wear clothes you can get messy as well!
Taught by local fashion designer, owner of Anti.Label, and former Project Runway contestant and fan favorite, Kelli Martin.
Class are all approximately 2-2.5 hours long and cost $40.

On the Worthington Village Green at the intersection of Routes 23 & 161
Celebrate the 23rd annual Worthington Art Festival sponsored by the Olde Worthington Business Association. The festival will take place on all four quadrants of the Village Green on Saturday, June 20 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and continue on Sunday, June 21 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This juried show features more than 150 select artists and fine craftsmen from across the country exhibiting sculptures, ceramics, oils, watercolors, furniture, jewelry, fiber, glass, photography and mixed media in applied and fine arts. In addition to art, the festival includes food concessions, quaint downtown shops, local eateries, and the regular Saturday Worthington Farmers Market. This outdoor festival is set up on the historic Worthington Village Green at the intersection of routes 23 & 161.
The festival’s reputation and the quality of the artwork have steadily risen during the years as artists recommend it to their colleagues across the nation. In fact, the festival has been selected as one of the top 100 best shows in the US by Sunshine Artist magazine and the artists themselves many times in the last 10 years.
Fine paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolor cover a wide range of subjects that include landscapes, wildlife, portraits, and still life. Fashionable clothing, accessories and jewelry will be available for children and adults. While functional and decorative pots, dinnerware, fountains, furniture, and sculpture can be acquired to enhance homes and gardens. The peaceful atmosphere is enhanced by musicians who make and demonstrate their instruments entertaining those in attendance. Enjoy our food vendors throughout the festival: Cinnamon Toasted Almonds, Lemon Shake ups, breakfast sandwiches, Kettle Korn, and various sandwiches and snacks. Also, visit our local restaurants and bars.
