“A one-man show of an artist’s work is a severe test and often a very revealing one.”
This is the opening statement to a “Palette & Brush” column in the Columbus Art League’s newsletter circa 1930s regarding solo artist Guy Brown Wiser. Wiser’s appreciation for craftsmanship and attention to detail earned him a solo exhibition in an era not accustomed to one-man shows.
As many of you know, the Ohio Art League strives to represent and encourage our members, be it in a one-artist exhibition or that in a group. Thus, in the days of the Columbus Art League, single-artist exhibitions were not as prominent as they are now in our Member Curated Exhibitions that are hosted monthly.
OAL member artist and photographer Daniel Rosales is an example of the progression our Ohio-based organization has seen over the years. Join him in his first ever solo show, “Play With Your Food,” at MadLab Theatre downtown at the end of this month.
The Opening Reception for “Play With Your Food” takes place from 5- 7 pm at MadLab.
This show is the idea of showing food in a manner that’s reserved to people. It gives a unique take on human personality. It is for anyone who has ever enjoyed playing with their food and now they don’t have to imagine what it would look like. To see how the inanimate would live if they could. -Rosales
His spectrum of genre ranges from that of the lively inanimate food stuffs, to that of professional event and interior photography. Have a look at his Facebook page to find out more about the event or get an inside look at some of his work.
