Smile in the face of adversity

“The geologist must be able to re-create a bygone world from the evidence of a few samples of rock. The artist creates previously un-dreamt worlds from bits and pieces of his own reality.”

Ohio Art League artist Tom Baillieul‘s extensive training and experience in the Earth Sciences have shaped the way he perceives the physical world – giving him the ability to think in four dimensions, the three spatial dimensions and “deep time.”

CS Gallery of Cobenick Studios will host Baillieul’s latest exhibition, Put on a Happy Face, from August 29 through September 29, 2014. Don’t miss the Opening Reception Friday Sept. 12 from 6- 9 in the evening.

Put on a Happy Face places the ubiquitous yellow “smiley” face in a variety of ambiguous or contradictory situations, from garment workers in an Asian sweatshop, to dementia patients in a nursing home, to a woman learning to walk with an artificial leg.

I want viewers to stop and consider that their own values, their own perspectives may only be one of several possibilities. I hope to inspire questions. What does it mean? Why is it there? How should I react?”

The smiley face has been used as a symbol of joy, friendship and good times since the 1960s; although there are indications that it may have appeared well before then. More recently, it’s been used to promote low-priced consumer goods imported from overseas. In this exhibition, Tom Baillieul imposes new meanings onto the friendly symbol.

CS Gallery is traveling down a new direction and hosting their first three-dimensional artwork exhibition titled Off the Wall. The gallery is in the process of obtaining pedestals suitable for all types of work, but artists should be prepared to bring their own should CS Gallery be unable to provide one. In such case, the 3-D works may be mounted to the wall or ceiling!

Please be sure to include your name and number in the submission form, along with the payment of $15 via cash or check, and the Artwork Details Form to the artwork drop-off.

Submission deadline is Wednesday, May 21 with Drop-Off the following day. 

CS Gallery is a non jury gallery for most shows. This means your submission is your commitment to participate, you just have to be present on the designated day with your 5 pieces. If you bring it there is a good chance we will hang it. However, you are only guaranteed one accepted piece. All curation and selection is at the discretion of CS, and is based on size of work and the number of participants in the show.

It is highly recommended that artists attend the Opening Reception on May 31st from 7- 10 pm at the gallery. Off the Wall is scheduled from May 24- June 4.
