Fairly Inspired: Local-Global Connections Art Show

10354675_1393072377674991_1410175142065372959_n

“What aparks in your imagination and what moves you when you look at the handmade craft work of an artisan who lives in a different part of the world?”

This is the question Global Gifts, a Short North fair trade store, posed to Columbus-area artists.  Their visual responses are the focus of Fairly Inspired: Local-Global Connections Art Show on display at Global Gifts during the month of May.

In a spirit of reciprocity and in honor of World Fair Trade Day, Global Gifts invited local artists to choose from fair trade artisan handcrafts in the store and to let their inspiration lead them to create original works of art. Fair Trade promotes handmade, artisan products while respecting the cultural identity of artisans from developing countries.  The intention of this art show is to highlight the links between artisans and artists from both near and far away with a commitment to supporting and celebrating their talents and skills.

Participating local artists include OAL member, Donna Estep, as well as:

Melissa Ayotte, Tiffany Christopher, Ashley YaYa Daubenmire, Danielle Forbes, Judy Gerdeman, Alissa Head, Elissa Leach, Lisa McLymont, Danielle Poling, Marritt Vaessin, Wendy Yeager, and Lisa Metzker.

Artists’ Reception, which is open to the public, will be held Saturday, May 9th from 6:30-9:30pm Global Gifts located at 682 N. High St. in the Short North Arts District.  Maza Blazka will be performing live music from 6:30-8:30pm.

Pick Up for Spring Jury!!

Pick Up for Spring Juried will be at Mount Vernon Nazarene University, Schnormeier Gallery  on Saturday from 9-4pm, and on Sunday from 1-3pm. This is for all artists who have not made alternative plans with OAL to transport work back from Mount Vernon to Yarn It & Haberdashery.

Any artwork that is not picked up from Schnormeier Gallery by 3pm on Sunday can be picked up on Monday or Tuesday at Yarn It & Haberdashery from 12-5pm.  It is located at 1093 W 1st. Ave, Grandview Heights, OH 43212.

Visit the Georgia O’Keefe studio and home on a tour of the landscape where participants can see the magnificent scenery from where the artist painted.

“Year after year, people return to reconnect, reaffirm, grow and evolve. We absorb the lessons offered not only by the outstanding programs but by the soul enriching siren song of this place. Here we become a part of the place as the place becomes a part of us.”

Google Art Project digitally preserves street art!

In June 2014, Google Art Project began publishing street art images, archiving works by artists like INTI in France, El Seed in Tunisia, and Nerf in Argentina. This month, the number of street art pieces carefully cataloged on Google Art Project reached 10,000! The Google Street Art Project aims to immortalize and preserve an art form that has been anything but “forever.”

For example, your favorite mural may be painted over in real life, but in the digital realm, it lives on forever.

Find work by local street artist and Ohio Art League member Stephanie Rond by following this link and searching under “S.”

Artists receive full credit on the site, which doesn’t allow downloads and dates each piece according to when it actually appeared at its designated location. Navigating the site, one can experience audio tours, curated online exhibitions, and original artist stories.

If you catch your own or any other local artists – especially OAL members – be sure to shoot us an e-mail so we can credit the works and promote it!
