Mid-October Art Happenings

Unfortunately, I did not get some events posted that are happening tonight because I’ve been sick…didn’t post about last week’s events either because of that so apologies to those of you who sent me invites/info on events that didn’t get promoted!

Hopefully, I am on the mend now so will be able to get out the info about the rest of the month’s happenings starting with so much going on in Central Ohio including Franklinton!

Artist Reception

Thursday October 13th

6-9 p.m.



The exhibition runs October 8th through October 24th
Artists’ Reception October 13th 6-9pm
From gallery owner, A.J. Vanderelli:

I am proud to present the new works of Kristin Morris, Kate Morgan and Debbie Loffing. I feel the three women share a common vein. Their work is robust, figurative and tends to teeter on the edge of the playfully macabre. The women work in layers, using discarded materials as either the foundation for the work, or added as a final touch bringing the piece to life. To borrow a line from Kate Morgan, they convey “the limitless individuality the human form embodies”. And if you look closely, you can see subtle hints of each woman reflected in their work!

EASE Gallery

Opening Reception: Ultra Softer

Friday October 14th

6-9 p.m.


Ultra Softer attempts to articulate the ways in which the material properties of fabric can contain the extreme, the excessive, and the radical demonstrated in works by Max Adrian, Jake Mason-Macklin, and Henry Ross. Ultra Softer argues for the urgency of softness as a material and a metaphor, weaving together the notions of blanketing and containing with social self-care in the contemporary condition mediated by and through webs and nets.

The exhibition in on view October 14 through November 19 with an opening reception on Friday, October 14 beginning at 6 PM.

Ultra Softer is guest curated by Marisa Espe, cofounder of MINT Collective and art contributor for Refigural Magazine. Past exhibitions include NSATSAT&A at MINT Collective (2015) and demaster at Satellite Contemporary (2016).

Second Sight Project

To Be Placed… 

Works by Kayla Suzanne Holdgreve and W.E. Arnold

Saturday 7-10 p.m.

To Be Placed explores the personal narrative behind the landscape image. W.E. Arnold approaches his subject in a street documentary style, capturing the environment he is continuously surrounded by, along with those who share in this space. With his style of documentation along with incorporating portraiture, he is capturing and preserving cultural significance within his community. Kayla Suzanne Holdgreve captures her surrounding landscapes as a means of self-portraiture, creating images that reinterpret various memories. When creating these landscape portraits, the changes of self are reflected on to the changes of the environment. While Arnold and Holdgreve have different approaches to capturing their imagery, their use of photographic techniques are similar, using various films such as medium format and instant films, along with found imagery.
