Northeast Ohio’s Own at Kent State University Abstract Painting ExhibitPosted Oct. 28, 2013
The Kent State University School of Art’s Downtown Gallery will present its new exhibit Abstract Painting in Northeast Ohio, curated by Martin Ball, now through Nov. 16. The gallery is located at 141 East Main St.
Ball, an associate professor at Kent State’s School of Art, says he hopes the show reflects “the diversity and strengths of abstract painting in Northeast Ohio.”
“I also wanted to show generational spread,” he says. “From established artists, such as John Pearson — who has been exhibiting nationally and internationally for more than 50 years — to younger, emerging painters, such as Dana Oldfather.”
The exhibit runs concurrently with American Abstract Artists: A Selection, which is on display at the School of Art Gallery through Nov. 22. That exhibit is curated by Scott Olson and Gianna Commito, two artists whose work is featured in the downtown exhibit. Additionally, Ball is a member of American Abstract Artists, the celebrated collective whose works are on display at the School of Art Gallery.
The artists featured in Abstract Painting in Northeast Ohio are Gianna Commito, Mark Keffer, Steve McCallum, Erik Neff, Dana Oldfather, Scott Olson, Lorri Ott and John Pearson.
The downtown gallery’s new extended hours are:
Monday – Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Thursday – 9:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Friday – 9:30 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Saturday – 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Sunday – noon – 5 p.m.
