Studios on High Gallery

Starting on Gallery Hop Saturday through April 16, experience the Wexner Center for the Arts in entirely new ways with S-337473, a newly commissioned work conceived specifically for the center’s unconventional architecture by category-defying artist Sarah Oppenheimer. Comprised of two large-scale, glass-and-metal structures anchored by a unique pivot mechanism—what the artist refers to as “switches”—S-337473 rotates at a 45-degree angle when activated by visitors. In response to your touch, thresholds turn into beams and columns become screens as they are reflected by the work’s surfaces. The exhibition space is reoriented around new axes, altering the flow of bodies and ricochet of sightlines through the built environment.

Please stop by from 6-9pm to enjoy her unique artwork. Light refreshments will be served.
Pies & Pints
Pies & Pints will be featuring local artist Stephanee Lee from Pickerington, Ohio. After dabbling in painted murals and charcoal portraits, she eventually moved on to scissors and scrapbook paper, and Shadowbox Boutique was born. A unique addition to the art world, Stephanee’s shadowboxes exemplify a strong command of stylization and engineering, while maintaining a playful creativity. Her works are deceptively simple at first glance, until the viewer takes a closer look to grasp the careful attention detail and intricate creation process.
