This March, Brandt-Roberts Galleries will feature works from our urban landscape artists, including Christopher Burk, Cody Heichel, and Curt Butler.
Hammond Harkins Galleries
From March 3 through April 16, Hammond Harkins Galleries will feature Dream in Color: New Works by Alteronce Gumby and Stephanie Luening, with an opening reception on Friday, March 3 from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. This exhibition features two very different artists who share an interest in color. Yale University graduate Alteronce Gumby, currently a resident at the Fondation des États Unis à Paris, creates tonal paintings using color as a metaphor for identity politics, empathy and self-liberation. Dresden-based Stephanie Luening, a graduate of the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts in Germany, creates installations that involve the transformation of liquid color. The products of time, chance and atmospheric conditions, Luening’s paintings materialize slowly into colorful primordial swirls. Whether through paint or melting ice, both artists examine the most basic phenomenon of light and human perception: color. Please join us in this exciting exploration and celebration of rainbow effects. Both artists will be present at the opening.
David Skeens is back at Joseph Editions with eight new works all on the theme of love. They promise to be even more popular than his wildly successful first series. Also featured are two beautiful new screen prints by Ohio-born, Los Angeles-based painter, Dion Johnson. The vivid colors are the perfect antidote to winter blues.
Join Lindsay Gallery for their March group show featuring Amber Groome and Deborah Griffing, opening on Friday, March 3. Art-making at it’s best, whether it comes from so called “outsider” artists or academically trained artists, is often the product of obsessions and the need to control them.

The group’s an eclectic collaboration among members of Columbus’ music community. When Jon Elliott of The Floorwalkers and Nick D’Andrea of Nick D’ and The Believers sat down to write a song together, the pair recognized their compatibility and called upon creatives from fellow Columbus favorites Mojoflo and Forest and the Evergreens to flesh out the songs in the studio.
