“Perception is reality, and I am fascinated how people gather fragments of what they decide is true and important– memory, stories, cultural influences, experiences, ideas and beliefs– and shape them into personal world views. I take fragments of the external world and weave them with invention and paint to create new morphing realities,” states OAL member Christine Guillot Ryan of her upcoming exhibition.

‘Converging Boundaries’ will be exhibited in the Cultural Arts Center Main Hall Gallery from September 5 through October 4, 2014. 

Don’t miss the Opening Reception of ‘Converging Boundaries’ from 5:30- 8:30 pm on September 5th. 

Guillot Ryan’s latest mixed media works explore the nature of our boundaries, the relationship between the intangible and the material world. Weaving fragments of representational imagery with paint, Christine creates new worlds that are vivid and richly layered, inviting imagination and provoking conceptual discovery.

Christine exhibits locally and nationally, is a member of the Ohio Art League and CAW (Creative Arts of Women), Art and Artists of 614, mentors students at Fort Hayes, and teaches workshops at the Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center of Worthington and at the Cultural Arts Center.
