NOV/DEC: Color in Harmony: Mark Gingerich's current body of work continues his exploration of the effects of light and color on his natural surroundings. Continuing the practice of plein air painting at his home and studio in rural Ohio allows Gingerich to study how the changing light affects the chromatic tone of his subjects. His distinct palette knife paintings flourish with harmonious color in a way that melds inherent, time-honored painting principals with present day aesthetics. It is in this manner that Gingerich distinguishes himself as a contemporary painter whose works transcend traditional ideals and constructs.

She lives in rural Ohio where she captures much of farm and country life in her oil paintings. A Closer Look also captures what her eyes see in a closer inspection when she decides what to paint. In her words, “ there is so much stimuli in our world that the limitation of four sides of a canvas can create a space for meditation. Just as the act of seeing and painting shifts one’s perceptions, so too can a viewer’s mood and mind be subtlety or at times even radically changed. The opportunity to slow down and pause, look at paintings and reflect without all the frenetic back and forth, can be tremendously restorative.” Nora’s little scenes of life are vibrant with intense color and show an expressive palette in her unique brush strokes.

Emerging Columbus artists 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. 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? Sanchez is a native of Puerto Rico, received her BFA with a minor in Art Therapy from CCAD in 2015. She was recently chosen to participate in Franklinton's Annual Urban Scrawl Event/Competition. 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.

My attention to detail and love of the medium of watercolor has always fueled my desire to do something new and different each time I put something on paper. The themes are often inspired by myths and folklore, beliefs and misconceptions. I infuse these different ideas with archetypal images to create a deeper story within the world I create.
