FEBRUARY GALLERY EXHIBITIONS
Brandt-Roberts Galleries | 642 N High St.
For the February Gallery Hop, Brandt-Roberts Galleries is proud to feature the work of Caitlin Cartwright. Her new exhibition, “Shadows,” will be on view through Thursday, Feb. 29, 2024.
Brandt-Roberts Galleries’ February Gallery Hop hours are 1-7 p.m.
Columbus Museum of Art at the Pizzuti | 632 Park St.
Start your Gallery Hop early with The Pizzuti for a last chance to visit the exhibition “In All Directions,” from Sarah Rosalena, closing Feb. 4, 2024.
Rosalena’s artworks fuse the materiality of traditional and indigenous craft techniques with emerging technologies to produce objects that break boundaries and borders imposed by colonization. Her hybrid forms of ceramic, textile, and beadwork examine the geo-political effects of climate change, dispossession, and extractive economies through anti-colonial and feminist perspectives. Through her art, Indigenous and craft technologies open new knowledge between the ancient and the futuristic, the human and nonhuman, and handmade and autonomous. The title of the exhibition, “In All Directions,” at once signals the irrelevance of the compass points in the expansiveness of the universe and the potential held in multi-cosmologies, temporalities and the infinite that could help us rewrite the narratives of the past and imagine different futures that break the binary structures rooted in “discovery.”
Columbus Museum of Art at The Pizzuti’s February Gallery Hop hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
