And all the land was swathed with color is a showcase of recent paintings by acclaimed Ohio artist Mark Gingerich. Known for his remarkable execution of contemporary impressionism, Gingerich continues to expand upon the long tradition of translating landscape into marks of light and color. It is these lyrical landscapes, ranging from snow covered small town streets to Midwestern pastoral scenes to alluring European locales, which provide the artist with an abundance of inspiration. And all the land was swathed with color will be on view through March 29.
Hammond Harkins Galleries
Hammond Harkins Galleries will exhibit a diverse collection of works by artists, including Laura Alexander, Elizabeth Gerdeman, Dennison Griffith, Paul Hamilton, Andrew Hendrixson, Janice Lessman-Moss, Stephanie Lüning, Andrea Myers, Aminah Robinson, Karen Snouffer, Carol Stewart, Melissa Vogley Woods, and Erin Wozniak. This show will be on display through March 13.
Only Bangers by Adam Hernandez features new work about the power of myth, speaking to the relationship with mythology and the importance of stories in the world today. The stories behind these paintings speak to the things we all have in common. They speak to the same fears and anxieties we all must face and overcome. The paintings are about empowerment, and the raw surfaces they are painted on are meant to act as mirrors, to reflect and radiate the boldness and fierceness that the characters captured on them exude. When we better ourselves, we better our world. When we become stronger, the world becomes stronger. Be encouraged. Be the best you. Only Bangers.
Marcia Evans Gallery
Marcia Evans Gallery will feature New Abstracts by Pittsburgh native Scott Hunter. Hunter studied painting and art history at Boston University, and his related experiences include theatrical set design, illustration, commissioned portraits and wall murals. His collection list includes the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, where he was commissioned to do a 96″x84″ painting titled “Bluffs,” and his awards include “The Associated Artists 102nd Annual Exhibition at the Carnegie Museum of Art”: AAP Purchase Award. New Abstracts will be on view through March 30.

Sean Christopher Gallery Ohio
Sean Christopher Gallery Ohio presents Concentration 12, its 18th Anniversary Celebration featuring an Annual Fort Hayes Arts and Academic High School Group AP Art Exhibition; curated by Teresa Weidenbusch. Select Advanced Placement sophomore, junior, and senior high school art students are engaged in creating individual series of works throughout the school year, each concentrating on one specific chosen focus. This structured exercise helps students to have a cohesive body of work and a portfolio for those going on to choose art as a major or minor at the college level. Many students who have created artworks exhibited in this annual show at Sean Christopher Gallery Ohio over the years have gone on to receive scholarships to attend schools such as the Columbus College of Art & Design, Maryland Institute College of Art, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. This show will be on display through March 28.
Sharon Weiss Gallery
Sharon Weiss Gallery will feature its March Salon Exhibition. The show will be on display through March 31.
Found by Sharon Weiss Gallery
Visit Found By Sharon Weiss Gallery during the March Gallery Hop to view a live portrait painting by award-winning Columbus artist Ron Mlicki from 5:00pm – 9:00pm.
Sherrie Gallerie will feature works by Israeli artist Zemer Peled, who creates forcible, nature-inspired sculptures and installations constructed using thousands of porcelain shards — a technique that yields a texture both delicate and severe. The act of making for Peled is a feat of endurance, improvisation, and adaptation with the aim to embody a fleeting but fundamental feeling of mystery. The construction of her sculpture parallels negotiations any outsider makes in encountering a new world as they delicately construct a self that is both adaptable and resilient. Her work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world. This exhibit will be on display through March 8.
Studios on High Gallery
A New Beginning watercolorist Antonio Gonzalez Garcia relocated to the U.S. from Spain in 2018. This exhibition honors that new start – that time when you’re at zero, where new creativity can birth to life feelings and where an artist’s novel explorations come forth from the unknown. This exhibition is an expression of the artist’s gratitude, for being welcomed into the gallery’s creative community and for the opportunity to explore his craft freely. A New Beginning will be on display through April 2.
