New Robotics Art & International Paintings To Show at Columbus Museum of Art
by Daric Gill
It is my great pleasure to announce the long-awaited opening of Greater Columbus, an exhibition featuring works by myself and a small group of outstanding artists based in central Ohio. The exhibition represents a wonderful partnership between the Columbus Museum of Art and the Greater Columbus Arts Council. This is my second exhibition at the museum representing this generous award by the Arts Council. To say that I’m grateful is an understatement. Last year’s museum exhibition in conjunction with a 3-month artist residency in Dresden, Germany are among my most pleasurable achievements as an artist.
A jury of distinguished arts professionals working outside the region awarded Individual Artist Fellowships to Molly Jo Burke & Nathan Gorgen, Nick Larsen, Laura Larson, and Christopher Burk. Greater Columbus features their work alongside myself and Chaz O’Neil, who were selected for additional residencies in Dresden, Germany as part of the Arts Council’s Artist Exchange Program.
I have selected 5 pieces for the exhibit including the special debut of an interactive light and sound sculpture. Additionally, there are 3 paintings made during my residency in Germany and another larger painting with international ties to Cuba.
A reception has not been planned for the foreseeable future. However, the exhibition is open for in-person experience and we are actively adding new virtual programs for the public. The museum, art council, and I welcome each one of you to visit and support artwork that is culturally viable and globally relevant. Please enjoy the image gallery below and the in-person exhibition if you can.
