Artist: Stacy Leeman

Brandt-Roberts Galleries

Brandt-Roberts Galleries is pleased to announce the representation of Stacy Leeman, with a feature of the artist’s abstract oil paintings.

Artist: Janine Crum

Emergent Art + Craft

Artist: Paul Hamilton

Hammond Harkins Galleries

Please join Hammond Harkins Galleries for a landmark exhibition from a master painter of landscapes. “States of Wonder: New Works by Paul Hamilton” is the artist’s thirtieth solo exhibition of his career. In addition to his much sought-after landscapes, this new body of work includes another favorite genre of his: still lifes. While the landscapes capture moments at once dramatic and intimate, the still lifes express a minimalism both serene and contemplative. In each instance, Hamilton puts a contemporary spin on a classic genre and leaves room for wonder. Also on display will be a new landscape installation consisting of 54 panels. Painterly and abstract up close, the panels merge into a single, coherent image from a distance. It is a monumental work to be seen in person.

Hammond Harkins Galleries’ June Gallery Hop hours are from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Artist: Meghan Willis

Lindsay Gallery

During the June Gallery Hop, Lindsay Gallery will feature Amber Groome’s exhibition of iconic doll boxes while exploring concepts in watercolor and collage. Amber views this show as an evolution… bringing together all facets of her work.

This exhibit is Willis’s homage to Gilbert Baker’s original pride flag. When Meghan {she/they} came out as non-binary, they created these portraits as a love letter to the LGBTQ+ community that embraced them. The work is arranged in eight color groupings showcasing the original flag’s colors.

Artist: Mikelle Hickman-Romine

Studios on High Gallery

Studios on High Gallery’s June exhibition features a collection of beaded brooches; hand-sewn butterflies and giant silk moths that are native to Ohio and displayed in their natural habitats. Every piece represents a being with its own heroism, poetry, and a desperate desire for life. Imago Dei is Latin for Image of God. The artist’s works are an exploration of theology, ecology, and the interaction of humanity with wildlife. Are these created images all that will be left before it is too late? Can humans share in the experience of transformation?

Inspired by the connection between the maker and the wearer, Mikelle Hickman-Romine is a Columbus, Ohio-based jewelry designer. Her “fine beadwork” is an innovative blend of peyote stitched components, gems, pearl beads, and wire work that merges to create lightweight, wearable, fashion-forward, one-of-a-kind stunners.

Studios on High Gallery’s June Gallery Hop hours are from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
