The AMAZING Cat Show

I attended the opening reception of this event and it WAS truly amazing!!!!  Tona Pearson and Angela Jann did a bang up job getting this show put together and up and it was evident in the masses of people that were there!  People didn’t just come, they bought!!!!  The show has sold over half of the art that was originally exhibited, raising thousands for Colony Cats…WOOT!  So much art was sold already that Tona and Angela have asked for more pieces...so if you are an artist, please consider adding to the walls…the ladies are accepting more art as the show goes on for the rest of the month!!!!If you love cats and art, get down there and purchase some fantastic pieces …I scored 3 great photos of cats!

Columbus Cultural Arts Center

Opening Reception: Fragmented Histories


6-8 p.m.


Mona Gazala’s multi-media works make lyrical connections between ancient ruins and the derelict or abandoned industrial and domestic structures within our own modern post-industrial cities. The work, which ostensibly deals with objects as artifacts, also seeks to explore some of the social issues and conflicts at play in urban settings: gender and racial bias, poverty, vacancy, displacement, marginalized peoples and gentrification.

3-4 p.m


Join the Pizzuti Collection for an hour-long discussion held in  third floor gallery space. Suzanne Roberts and Jim A. White Sr. have been working together to open up frank dialog about what we talk about when we talk about race with goals of unifying our communities and making social change.“Social Commentary Through Art and Media” is free with admission.
Please RSVP to Mark Zuzik at mzuzik@pizzuticollection.org or call 614-300-3542.
