Barbara Vogel to appear at Dublin Arts Center Gallery in April

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 3.33.02 PM
Ohio Art League member-artist extraordinaire Barbara Vogel, along with Marjorie Bender, will hostFamily and Friends, a moving and amusing look at the pivotal relationships of our lives and the people within them.
Family and Friends will be on display at the Dublin Arts Council from April 7 through May 16, 2015, with a public Opening Reception April 7 from 6- 8 PM.
Bender is best known for her clay sculptures, but also produces and exhibits drawings and paintings. Vogel’s background is in photography. Many of her works continue to connect to photographic images, often in unexpected ways. Vogel also was awarded for her accomplishments among the community at the Ohio Made festival the previous summer.
The artists excel in conveying the many dimensions of our closest relationships and in utilizing humor — sometimes whimsical, sometimes dark — to undercut sentimentality. Family and Friendsbrings together earlier and more recent works by both artists and will feature a new collaborative project that pays homage to a number of their mutual friends and mentors.
For more information on the Dublin Arts Council or to check out their line-up of exhibitions and events, head on over to the DAC homepage!
Gallery hours: Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Solarplate Etching Workshop at Phoenix Rising


Instructor: Anne Cushman, co-founder of our cooperative

Two Session Course: Thursday, February 5th and Saturday, February 7th 

Explore the versatile, contemporary printmaking process of solarplate printing.  This non-toxic method of plate-making uses solar energy (UV light) and water to develop an image for an etching or photo-etching.  No acid is used! Starting with a drawing or photograph, the results can be wonderful, varied and lead to creating a limited edition.

This 2-session workshop is fine for both beginners and experienced printmakers.  The first evening session is a demo and learning the process; the second day, creating the plate and printing your image multiple times.  You bring the creative spark and an apron or smock; and we provide the materials.

Session One: Thursday, February 5, 2015; 6:30-8:00pm

Session Two: Saturday, February 7, 2015; 10:00am-2:00pm
