This exhibition features the work of three artists from Ohio: Eliana Saari, Tessa Windt and Ellen Grevey.
The artists explore fabrics, fibers and fashion in distinct and nontraditional ways.
Saari uses a complex process of layering images in the computer which are printed through the press or woodblock on paper or fabric, with which she constructs clothing, tapestries or wallpaper. Windt researches historic costume and drapery for her work in fiber and ceramic, and Grevey works in a variety of materials in her unusual studies of the historic homemaking roles.
The exhibition will open with an artist reception at the Ohio Art League Gallery, 954 North High Street, during the Short North gallery Hop, Saturday, November 3 from 6-9 pm.
About the MCE’s: The Ohio Art League invites it’s 500+ artists to submit a short written proposal to the Exhibition Committee. Exhibitions can be thematic, retrospective or otherwise. A proposal includes and outline for an exhibition describing the idea, well thought out and presented with visuals. The proposals are reviewed by a committee of League members, and are selected based on the exhibition idea. Once a proposal is approved and scheduled the committee does not interfere with the integrity of the exhibition.
The Ohio Art League is a nonprofit member organization dedicated to the presentation and support of Ohio based artists. The gallery is located at 954 N. High Street in Columbus’ Short North. The gallery is open to the public every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 12 -5 pm. For more information please contact Linda Gall at 614-299-8225.
The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.
