Crystallized: Works by Amy Neiwirth

Help Support Ohio Art League member artist Amy Neiwirth!

Amy Neiwirth is a visual artist & art educator, holding a BFA in Painting & Drawing and an MA in Art Education, both from The Ohio State University. Amy is most well-known for her whimsical food-inspired jewelry she creates for her small business, Sweet Stella Designs, the 2012 winner of the “Best Brand Without A Storefront” award in the Columbus Alive’s “Best of Columbus” readers poll. Amy also creates paintings and mixed-media artwork and is a member of the Ohio Art League, CAW: Creative Arts of Women, and the Crafty Cotillion. She teaches visual art for grades K-12 at a private school.

Artist Amy Newirth will be exhibiting her fluorescent watercolor paintings and jewelry designs during the month of November at Image Optical in the Short North. The show, entitled “Crystallized,” is a visual departure from her other more obviously food-themed artworks. The Crystallized works explore abstractions of magnified sugar crystals and play with geometric forms and bold colors. These watercolor paintings are meticulously created from many layers of translucent paint, emphasizing color relationships and patterns. Neiwirth has created a line of jewelry to complement her Crystallized paintings. Using metal, paper, and epoxy resin, she has created wearable art at an affordable price point.

Event Information:

Opening Night- Saturday, November from 7-10pm

Location-  Image Optical is located at 607 North High Street in the Short North.

MCE: Tendrils, A Delicate Twist

ImageMember Curated Exhibition of October is ‘Tendrils, A Delicate Twist’ by member artists Nicki Strouss, Esther Hall, and Megan A, Coyan. Curated by Catherine Bell Smith this exhibition shows each woman, working in her own tradition of paper, embroidery or textile design, creates fiber art that stretches beyond the boundaries of surface design and utility. Material and technique, though not ignored, are eclipsed by message, story, and meaning. This common thread is the foundation for Tendrils, a Delicate Twist. Coyan’s appliqué and woven pieces, rich with life’s designs, and Halls storytelling embroidery work play an intricate counterpoint to Strouss’ evocative ceramic, felt, and paper vessels.

Show runs October 3- 31st

When: Thursday October 3, 2013 from 6:30 PM- 8:00 PM
