A full list of additional April Gallery Hop exhibitions and events is below.

Gallery and business hours may vary.


Artist: Elsa Muñoz

Brandt-Roberts Galleries

Brandt-Roberts Galleries presents “Elsa Muñoz: Controlled Burns,” unveiling new oil paintings from the Chicago-based artist.

As a painter, she is primarily interested in making images that contribute to the effort of re-enchantment with nature as a first step towards a deeper relationship with the more-than-human world. At the heart of this series is the desire to use the metaphor of a controlled burn to help build hope and resilience in times of uncertainty. “Controlled Burns” runed April 2 through May 1.

Brandt-Roberts Galleries’ April Gallery Hop hours are 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Artist: Todd Jones

Emergent Art + Craft

During the month of April, Emergent Art & Craft in the Short North will feature Florida-born and Ohio-based painter Todd Jones. Todd explores the boundaries between contemporary painting and sculpture as an experimental artist.

Todd’s work is process-driven, creating layered blocks of salvaged mistint and discarded house paint that is molded and carved into newfound forms. A visual record of history is created by exposing the repetitive layers and the lost hopes and dreams each colored layer represents. This body of work is a reflection on consumerism, memory, and identity. 

Emergent Art + Craft’s April Gallery Hop hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. A reception will take place during Gallery Hop from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Artist: Aminah Robinson

Hammond Harkins Galleries

Join Hammond Harkins for this exhibition of works by Aminah Robinson organized by guest curator Deidre Hamlar from the Columbus Museum of Art.

This two-part exhibition includes Aminah’s monumental Presidential RagGonNon, dedicated to Barack Obama, re-envisioned with additional works from the Presidential series and previously unseen related works. Also included are pairings of works that explore the rich relationship between Aminah’s art and writings.

Stop into Hammond Harkins Galleries and rediscover this Columbus artist and American voice and shared narratives both familiar and new.

Artist: Daniel Ferlan

Sharon Weiss Gallery

Sharon Weiss Gallery presents “The Light through the Mourning,” new paintings by Daniel Ferlan, which will remain on view through April 28.

Cycles, new beginnings and endings all ring true in Daniel Ferlan’s spring display of oil paintings featured at the Sharon Weiss Gallery this April. Filtering memories of home through adaptations of familiarity, grows like wild-flowers in these sprawling narratives. The artist encompasses his grief through revisiting the past by painting a lively language of characters situated in theatrical landscapes
