"To Drink the Sky, To Breathe the Sea: Selected Works on Paper by Walter King"
2002-04-19 until 2002-05-18
Columbus College of Art and Design
Columbus, OH, USA United States of America

Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD) is proud to present To Drink the Sky, To Breathe the Sea: Selected Works on Paper, selections from Walter King's solo exhibition at the Centro Cutural Recoleta in Buenos Aires, Argentina last fall. Presented in the Canzani Center Acock Gallery, the exhibition runs from April 19 to July 14.

King describes his work as an expression of his internal dialogues. The selections in this show represent three years of studies and preliminary works on paper. Combining traditional oil paint with stencils and other graphic means, King creates images of stenciled sky and sea with sparse iconography, which is often repeated throughout the works. King's scenarios get at his sense of the larger physical and spiritual melee at work in the world.

The exhibit is a selection of works that were originally part of a solo exhibition that traveled to Buenos Aires in a cultural exchange between that country and CCAD. In September famed Argentine illustrator Hermenegildo Sabat sent more than 80 works for exhibit at CCAD. In November CCAD returned the favor by sending King with an exhibition of his artwork, and a group exhibition of works by nine Ohio illustrators. The exchange was organized with help from the Ohio Arts Council.

To Drink the Sky, To Breathe the Sea: Selected Works on Paper will be on exhibit in the Canzani Center Acock Gallery from April 19 to July 14. The Canzani Center is located on the corner of Cleveland Avenue and East Gay Street (just south of the 100-foot-tall ART sculpture). Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.; Thursdays until 7 p.m.; and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Admission is free.
