A Trip Back in Time and A One Man Art Show with Daniel Rosales

“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.

Screen Shot 2014-08-12 at 3.20.46 PM

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.

Sensorial Sensibilities at the Agora Gallery, NY

Screen Shot 2014-06-16 at 12.50.09 PM

Ohio- based artist Adam Kiger comes from a long line of painters and first picked up a paintbrush when he was six, though he says he spent most of his life running from his talent. Now that he’s embraced painting and is pursuing a career in art, he wants to give back by inspiring those who see his work to seek their own personal revelation, and hopes his paintings will be a mirror to the human soul. By contrasting the familiar with the incoherent and redefining ideas of beauty and aesthetics, Kiger references both hope and denial.

The Ohio Art League is proud to announce Kiger’s collaboration with Sensorial Sensibilities, a thought-provoking exhibit on display at Chelsea’s Agora Gallery from July 5 through July 25 of this summer.

Screen Shot 2014-06-16 at 12.51.53 PM

The works in Sensorial Sensibilities reflect a range of considerations, ideas and experiences, as each piece draws on the background, thoughts and memories of its creator. Thus, viewers are encouraged to engage with the deep concerns artists pour into the works in the exhibit, allowing for a dynamic dialogue between artist and gallery-goer.

The Opening Reception for Sensorial Sensibilities will take place on Thursday, the 10th of July from 6- 8 in the evening. The Agora Gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 am to 6 pm.

Support Ohio Art League member-artist Adam Kiger along with the nationally renowned all-star lineup at the acclaimed Agora Gallery in New York this summer!  For more information on this or upcoming exhibitions, visit the Agora website by clicking here!
