For a vessel moving through space, to yaw is to deviate temporarily from a straight course. For a vessel, to yaw is to shift along the vertical axis, to turn or be turned by oncoming forces. In human terms, to yaw is to turn on one’s heel to face a new direction. In human terms, this may mean a new course, or simply a new view for one maintaining their center.
SHIFT: yaw is an exhibition of artworks including new directions and new facets of work by graduate and undergraduate students at The Ohio State University. SHIFT: yaw seeks to call attention to the reaction of the student artist to the forces of academically structured influences.

On Saturday, November 7, beginning at 5 pm, Stone Village Art Gallery invites you to the opening reception of “Re-Imagined Wild” by local artist Patrick Wayner.
In Patrick’s own words:
In this series I explore the concept of reclaiming nature. I look at the idea that humans are an integral part of nature and that together we can coexist. Our affect on nature is based on positive and negative interactions. Applying this concept to my collection, I used recycled wood to show the marriage of weather, the wild, and the modern world, over time. Appreciation of the world around us is a constant thread in my work. With the help of our local art community, I was able to salvage old weathered wood and reclaim a piece of nature. I used these beautiful pieces to build animals from the elements that create the world they live in.
Technique: The pieces in “Re-imagined Wild” were created using mainly a scroll saw, in addition to a variety of wood working tools. All patterns were hand-cut and independently applied. Color and hand-brushed line work were applied using acrylic paint, Montana Gold aerosol and high flow acrylic pens.
Artist Statement/Inspiration: As an artist, I’m continually evaluating my life and art, keeping what serves me and discarding the rest. As human beings, our ever-changing personal experiences instigate the need for constant self-editing. I explore the concept of evolution through fragmented layers of pattern, shape, line and color. As each experience builds personal character, the physical experience builds each artistic character. My pieces illustrate the inherent struggle of coming into being. The animals represented demonstrate the minutia of decision-making and the resulting sense of achievement, maturity, balance and autonomy all beings obtain from living through the process.
The influence for James Morton’s paintings is the tradition of painting of the 16th and 17th centuries as seen especially in the works of Titian, Veronese, Caravaggio, Rubens, Rembrandt, and Velasquez. James Morton was born in Cleveland in 1947. He received his MFA from University of Wisconsin – Madison. Morton has resided at Milo Arts in Columbus, Ohio, for nearly 25 years.
American photographer Willis Shively is best known for his immense body of portraiture work, captured over a career of four decades. Shively was born in New York City in 1948. He received his BFA in painting from The Ohio State University. Shively currently lives and works at Milo Arts in Columbus, Ohio, with his two black poodles.
