About the artist:

Mitchell Lippencott is a central Ohio-based artist and landscape designer.

Although best know for his nostalgic advertising-themed sign work, the majority of Mitchell’s recent commissions have been custom furniture pieces. He co-developed the Columbus Before I Die Wall, performed metal work for the ‘Daily Chores’ public sculpture in Dublin, Ohio, and is currently constructing a large-scale public installation of his animated short film, Freddy the Fish Freaks Out. In the recent past, Mitchell worked as a Metal Sculpture and Welding Instructor, and apprenticed under tattoo master Horikei in Northern Japan.

Mitchell is a member of Cap City Creatives and the Ohio Art League.

A statement from the Artist:

“I travel. I garden. I paint. I build furniture. I’m on an endless hunt for the next big adventure, and I photograph the beauty I find along the way.

This collection represents my voyages, my vision of the world around me, and my passion for all things exciting and new. These photos are not memories – they are motivation to journey on.

I have no end in sight. Nothing I hope to find. I’m simply searching. I sincerely hope this collection allows viewers to embark on a journey of their own – to escape the debts and deadlines of everyday life. To find a holiday in the hallway.”

– Mitchell Lippencott

His exhibition will last through August 10th, and anyone interested in buying one of his pieces from this show should contact OAL at 614-299-8225 or oal@oal.org

Marjorie Bender and Barbara Vogel: Family and Friends

Marjorie Bender and Barbara Vogel: Family and Friends

April 7 – May 16, 2015

Opening Reception April 7, 6-8pm 

Location: Dublin Arts Council 

Address: 7125 Riverside Drive, Dublin, OH 43016

Marjorie Bender and Barbara Vogel: Family and Friends offers a moving and amusing look at the pivotal relationships of our lives: those with our families and friends. Bender and Vogel have both exhibited extensively in the Columbus area. Bender is best known for her clay sculptures, but also produces and exhibits drawings and paintings. Vogel’s background is in photography. Many of her works continue to connect to photographic images, often in unexpected ways. The artists excel in conveying the many dimensions of our closest relationships and in utilizing humor — sometimes whimsical, sometimes dark — to undercut sentimentality. Family and Friends brings together earlier and more recent works by both artists and will feature a new collaborative project that pays homage to a number of their mutual friends and mentors.

A free public reception will be held Tuesday, April 7 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Gallery hours: Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Exhibition and public reception are free of charge.

Collusion Exhibition at the Cultural Arts Center

Collusion: Works of Voice

Cultural Arts Center

Exhibition Dates: March 13-April 10 

Artists’ Reception: March 13, 6-8pm 

Conversations & Coffee Art Talk: March 19, 12-1pm 

OAL member, Chad Cochran, and Brian Reaume have collaborated on the show along with Eric Rausch–the curator.

Statement from Chad:

I first saw Brian’s work at the CAC, during his solo exhibition, Shelter Series: Coastal Refugees. I was immediately drawn to his vision and concepts tied to providing voices to shelters because my thoughts align. As I capture the decaying and vanishing structures throughout Ohio, I hope to not only provide documentation but also to initiate conversations about the homes and those who inhabited them. There are stories that were told within the walls and they remain captured there. With my photos and assemblage pieces, I hope to provide the viewer a way to connect to those stories which gives them a chance to find a new home.

In my photographs, Brian has found characters. Ones he will converse with, study, understand and express. We work to provide new meaning, hope and voices to these “vaporizing” structures.

Statement from Brian:

Through the use of mixed media we give voices to forgotten, lost Ohio shelters of past. Each work will begin from a current photograph, from this image the works are reinterpreted through painting, sculpture or assemblage.

The purpose of having a two person show as opposed to a solo exhibit is to express the idea of our multi-layered vision. The challenge is to create from another’s work and tell a story from a different perspective, using my intention and delving into Chad’s vision of history in Ohio. By changing the everyday reality of passing these relics without notice; instead putting purpose to stopping, looking and listening to these forgotten shelters, we can map rural and urban decay for future generations. The personal challenge for me is spending time with each photo and listen to them intently to retrieve their story as opposed to painting/sculpting from the feel of actually being at the location. I have found this to bring an intimacy with each work that is not forced, instead being a seamless transition from print to painting or 2d to 3d once I learn to listen to the subject.

Statement from Eric:

I have come to know Brian and Chad as artists; these two are overcome with a need to document their world. Through their experimentation and documentation they create beautiful works of art that are engaging to a viewer and professionally finished. When I heard that they were working together to collaborate on a show, I was instantly interested to hear more. Through our ensuing conversations we formed a partnership that included me as their curator.

There is a link between their artwork in visual appeal, and together they have created an exhibition experience for the viewer. The show includes 2d and 3d works in various sizes and price points. Each piece is finished to a high standard of professionalism, from framed photographs, wall hanging and pedestal sculptures to a large installation piece in the gallery.

The installation will include large “vapor shelters” which will have the look of porcelain with minimal color and texture. Varying in size, these shelters will be installed in the center of the main gallery so the viewer can walk around each one and may be able to see inside but will not be able to enter. The area around the grouping of shelters will have elements of scattered debris including chairs for the viewer to sit and contemplate. The structures will have the feeling that they are visions of what once stood in what is now debris. Elements of light and sound will be used to illustrate the life that these shelters housed and the stories that are contained within.
