Stories to Tell
Doug Gantt tells stories of the Old West, often inspired by paintings or illustrations. Gantt reworks these images onto a flat plane, often turning backgrounds into abstractions. They are, in his words: “stories of events chapter to chapter when law and order became laws of the town.”
Doug paints at the Open Door Art Studio, a local community of artists with disabilities.
Steve Moseley began his artmaking with ships in bottles, but soon switched to storytelling. Moseley gravitates toward subjects that people think about but may be reluctant to discuss. By the way, the scenes are all constructed through the mouths of the bottles! After he was diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses, he realized that he really didn’t care if viewers were offended by his themes of religion, sex and politics.
Steve is a Kentuckian who now resides in St. Louis.
And if you feel like going even farther north than Delaware…

Angela Meleca Gallery: “Exposure”, Robert Buck
Angela Meleca Gallery is pleased to present “Exposure”, Robert Buck’s first solo exhibition in the gallery. The new works presented in this exhibition are a continuation of a series first created by Buck for an exhibition in October 2009, which were inspired in part by the introduction of the iPhone and its rear-facing camera. Those paintings, perhaps too prescient, a year ahead of the launch of the iPhone 4 and its LED flash, were placed in storage, save for a 2013 group show, and remained there until early 2016 when Angela Meleca asked to see them. As a consequence of that studio visit, Buck returned to the series, and the result is “Exposure”, a show of new “iPaintings”.

Hold Me to the Light: Sonya Lucas
In Sonya’s own words, “Hold Me to the Light” explores Appalachian imagery, feminism, dreams and nostalgia.
Nostalgia as content, has often been denied a voice in terms of higher “art” and I feel that is a mistake. Divorcing nostalgia from image making is a form of intellectual sexism. As most of my imagery derives from concepts of “home” and identity through place – nostalgia is a driver for much of what I create. An author can never be separated from the narrative that makes them – reflected time can and does create something new. By using coal dust to create the dark tones in each painting I add the very West Virginia ground of my home to each expression.
Sean Christopher Gallery
“Ebb and Flow” – Duo Exhibition Opening
Natalia Sanchez and Kyle Bowersock
Opening Reception, Nov 5, 6-10pm
Exhibition Continues thru Nov 22
The phrase ‘ebb and flow’ which informs Sean Christopher Gallery’s November 2016 exhibition is steeped in multiple meanings. Emerging Columbus artists Natalia Sanchez and Kyle Bowersock come together to explore realms of emotional and spacial intelligence, disease/dis-ease and healing, vibration/sound and color, the seen and unseen, cause and effect, and much more.
Two very observant painters from differing backgrounds have chosen to delve into the poetic through their own individualized painterly expressions. Sanchez creates and records musical sounds first, then listens to the recordings (with her mind, body and spirit) while painting. This informs the work, it’s color, emotion and form. These sound recordings will play alongside her paintings during the exhibit. Bowersock grapples through a mark-making painting process often hampered by a progressive visual impairment (related to his diabetes) and sometimes other sensory disturbances from outside sources like the loudness and brightness of neon signage. The artist discerns as each mark informs the next whether to include or exclude such unwanted or undesired input … when and how to go with the flow or when to be more cerebral?
Natalia Sanchez is a native of Puerto Rico and received her BFA in Fine Arts and her minor in Art Therapy from Columbus College of Art & Design (CCAD) in 2015. She continues to be a bright spot in Columbus’ growing arts community. Natalia was recently chosen to participate in Franklinton’s Annual Urban Scrawl Event/Competition and is a member of Creative Arts of Women (CAW). Kyle Bowersock is a native of Ashland, Ohio and is receiving his BFA in Fine Arts and his minor in Art History from CCAD in December 2016. Kyle received the Best of Show Award at Sean Christopher Gallery‘s annual “Young Hearts 5 Exhibition”, February 2016. He is in process of applying for graduate studies in art at various institutions (nationally) for the 2017-2018 Academic Year.
ROY G BIV Gallery
Opening Reception: Laura Makar and Virginia Kistler
ROY G BIV Gallery presents work by Laura Makar and Virginia Kistler. The work of both artists is on display November 5–26 at 997 N High St. Admission is free.
Laura Makar’s elaborate cut paper compositions are the result of her fascination with drawing. They rely on intricate line work that materializes into detailed abstract forms. The complex shadows cast by her delicate hand cut paper emphasize the intangible spaces between, engaging the viewer micro and macroscopic levels. Memory plays a significant role in her process. Her meticulous pieces are a way of documenting the repetition she observes on a day-to-day basis.
Virginia Kistler records fleeting impressions created by urban spaces, flora and fauna. In doing so she calls attention to the ubiquity of urban landscapes and the absence of biodiversity within them. Her subject matter is broad, ranging from fungi, to audio recordings of birds, to green-space maps from her own neighborhood. She uses her findings to create sculptural forms and photographic images that, while static themselves, are suggestive of the constantly changing world they come from.
