One of the founding members of Glass Axis and 20-year-veteran of the Ohio Art League, Andy Hudson is a retired OSU Medical Educator, an artist, art collector and glassblower. As we’re sure you’ve seen his work around (and out of) town, now is your chance to own one of his one-of-a-kind fire drawings like Saroon featured below!

OAL member-artist and COSI‘s own Erica Gilbert paints mostly landscapes of places she has traveled and is inspired by light and color in nature. She has an M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education and a studio art minor. Let her soft, nature-inspired works breathe life into your home and bid on her works at One Night! Check out her oil painting Venice as seen below!
