Amy Hipple & AP Crone! Go girls!

OAL member artists Audrey Crone and Amy Hipple have exhibited at several of our events throughout the years, and now they’re doing us one more solid by donating some works to our One Night Live Auction! Both of which, among all the others, are available for purchase at the event on October 10 at Strongwater Spirits and Gallery Space in Franklinton.

If you haven’t yet, get your tickets today! For more information on the event or anything else the Ohio Art League has to offer– which is a lot, trust me– visit our home page and sign up for our newsletter!

For those of you members who want to get your artwork in front of some well-established art collectors, enthusiasts, and potential buyers, submit your work by tomorrow! Deadline for One Night artwork submission is Monday Oct. 6 BY 11:59 PM!!!

Ohio Art League member Amy Hipple is an art instructor with FCBDD and has been working in Stained Glass since 1978.  “I fell in love with the medium while on a field trip to Franklin Art Glass in 1970, and returned to work there before starting my career as an artist,” says Hipple. ” After working at Highlights for Children for 22 years, I received my teaching certificate and Masters of Education at Ohio Dominican University, and have been teaching students with disabilities ever since.” Check out Summer Glass Puddle below!

Aubrey Crone‘s Betty has made her niche in the artistic community, that’s for sure. You’ve probably seen her in some of our Member-Curated Exhibitions or, most definitely, our most recent Spring Juried Exhibition. Audrey P. Crone holds a Master’s Degree in Communication Designs from Pratt Institute in New York and is a Thai-Chinese New Yorker who currently resides in, that’s right, Columbus, Ohio.

If you have yet to get your tickets for Ohio Art League’s One Night fundraising event of the year, now is the time! We are receiving all kinds of one-of-a-kind works created by local Ohio artists that you know and love, not to mention some of the greatest deals in our Silent Auction from businesses around town.

Get your tickets here!

Keep reading to hear about Brian Riegel and Barbara Vogel, two of our esteemed artists who have submitted works for our One Night Live Auction!

Recently, Brian Riegel had 18 works on display at Port Columbus Airport, won “best in show” at OAL’s Ohio Made (piece on display at Ohio History Center until Oct. 20th), and was featured in Sept. 2014 issue Stock and Barrel magazine. This winter, Riegel’s body of work will be on display at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. The artist states that his work often “evokes nostalgia as one recognizes familiar items from the past, and the composition forces viewers to see the familiar pieces as something mysterious, new and unfamiliar.” Riegel’s “favorite challenge is to take peoples’ once beloved, … outmoded objects and create something valuable that requires them to see the objects with a new perspective.” His evaluation of his work is evident in the piece Celtic Chain Drive displayed above.

Vogel received a B.F.A. And M.F.A. from the Ohio State University and was part of OAL’s 100th anniversary exhibit at the Riffe Galleryandthe recipient of an Ohio Arts Council individual Excellence Award! She is represented by Sherrie Gallery, is a member of CAW, and a trustee at the Ohio Designer Craftsman Museum. You may remember her impression and honorary award at our Ohio Made festival on Sept. 27. One of her One Night works,Flattop, is featured above.

Do good and get fancy for Art For Life 2014!

Screen Shot 2014-08-05 at 2.05.15 PM

The first Art for Life was held August 5, 1989 at the Battleship Building in Short North with 58 artists participating and 115 pieces that were auctioned off, including famous memorabilia. Over the past 25 years, Art for Life has raised nearly 2 million dollars to help support AIDS Resource Center Ohio and the much needed programs and services provided for our community; in 2012, Art For Life raised $440,000 with 1200 attendees from throughout Columbus!

The event, which is the largest charity art auction in central Ohio, is comprised of two parts—a live auction and a silent auction.  Art for Life was started in 1989 by local artists and donors who believed there was a need for an event of this caliber to raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS services in our community.

Art for Life 2014 will be held September 13, 2014 atthe Ohio History Center.

The 2014 Event Chairman is Tom Katzenmeyer, President and CEO of the Greater Columbus Arts Council. Purchase tickets here or find out more about sponsorship opportunities!

The Ohio Art League would like to extend exponential gratitude towards those of our current members that donated works into the silent and live auction for this year’s Art for Life event. Click the links below for direct access to the homepage of each designated auction to see works from these and all other artists that donated.
