Pool-pah by Andy Hudson

The Ohio Art League’s annual Spring Juried Exhibition is a concise collection of three dozen works of art.

Selected by Denny Griffith, president of the Columbus College of Art & Design, and presented at the Main Library of the Columbus Metropolitan Library, the show celebrates the accomplishments of art-league members and takes the pulse of the art community in central Ohio and beyond.

Although traditional art-making approaches are in full view, the most striking works are unconventional and unexpected.

At first sight, Andy Hudson’s sepia-colored Pool- Pah looks like an abstract drawing of knotted rope, but closer inspection reveals that the piece is really about absence. The drawing was made by dripping molten glass on a white substrate. After removing the glass, the remaining burn marks become evidence of past action. The remnants are surprisingly elegant, spontaneous and fluid.

Adrian Blackstock’s embroideries Porch No. 2 and Porch No. 3 expand on the traditional line drawing. They consist of a single stitched line. Using dark-red thread on sheer, shimmering-white backgrounds, she creates an image that suggests that an ordinary residential porch can become a sacred space.

Tyler Bohm’s relief sculpture UR, which is made from layers of laser-cut plexiglass, has a dynamic physical presence. Resembling a growing organic structure or, perhaps, a microscopic virus, the piece is both beautiful and threatening.

Eddie Fulcher’s sculpture Conversations With Myself addresses issues of technology and learning. Made from encyclopedia pages, the piece consists of a massive stack of more than 2,800 origami boxes glued together to form a large rectangular cube. Placed on a child’s wooden chair, the cube is unwieldy — like an accumulation of knowledge that is hard to manage. Not unlike today’s media-saturated world, the piece speaks to the challenge of managing information.

In Nautilus Horn, Brian Riegel has re-purposed found objects to achieve a sculpture that resembles both a ship’s wheel and a musical instrument.

And Tom Baillieul raises questions about labor and industry in the painting Happy To Be Here. It depicts eight garment workers at their sewing machines. In a move that is both silly and surprisingly evocative, all have yellow smiley faces painted over their heads. No longer having personal identities, the workers are automatons.

Juried shows can vary widely in terms of medium and artistic intent. This installment of the annual art-league spring show offers a compelling view of work being done in our community — and one of the most cohesive groupings in the show’s history.
