Worthington Art Festival: Emerging Artists represented at the MAC

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 2.22.13 PM

The Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center is hosting an Emerging Artist section on the front lawn of the facility during the Worthington Art Festival from June 20- 21, 2015. This program is implemented to promote Ohio artists -either students or those within the first three years of their career- who have little or no selling or exhibiting experience in festivals.

All applicants must submit a complete application packet, which includes three (3) images of the artist’s work and one (1) image of his/ her exhibit, a brief biography of the artist and a description of his/her artwork. Artwork must be the original creation of the entering artist and exemplify characteristics of fine arts or fine crafts. While tents are encouraged, they are not required.

Applications are due by April 15, 2015. 

Download the application form

 Interested artists are asked to apply early, as booth fee checks are not cashed until accepted.

Acceptance notifications will be sent out on May 1, 2015.

Amy Hipple & AP Crone! Go girls!

OAL member artists Audrey Crone and Amy Hipple have exhibited at several of our events throughout the years, and now they’re doing us one more solid by donating some works to our One Night Live Auction! Both of which, among all the others, are available for purchase at the event on October 10 at Strongwater Spirits and Gallery Space in Franklinton.

If you haven’t yet, get your tickets today! For more information on the event or anything else the Ohio Art League has to offer– which is a lot, trust me– visit our home page and sign up for our newsletter!

For those of you members who want to get your artwork in front of some well-established art collectors, enthusiasts, and potential buyers, submit your work by tomorrow! Deadline for One Night artwork submission is Monday Oct. 6 BY 11:59 PM!!!

Ohio Art League member Amy Hipple is an art instructor with FCBDD and has been working in Stained Glass since 1978.  “I fell in love with the medium while on a field trip to Franklin Art Glass in 1970, and returned to work there before starting my career as an artist,” says Hipple. ” After working at Highlights for Children for 22 years, I received my teaching certificate and Masters of Education at Ohio Dominican University, and have been teaching students with disabilities ever since.” Check out Summer Glass Puddle below!

Aubrey Crone‘s Betty has made her niche in the artistic community, that’s for sure. You’ve probably seen her in some of our Member-Curated Exhibitions or, most definitely, our most recent Spring Juried Exhibition. Audrey P. Crone holds a Master’s Degree in Communication Designs from Pratt Institute in New York and is a Thai-Chinese New Yorker who currently resides in, that’s right, Columbus, Ohio.
