The Concourse Gallery in Upper Arlington, a public reception area of the Municipal Services Center is home to the Visual Arts Series. The City of Upper Arlington has dedicated the space to the arts for over 30 years. Each exhibit features interactive pieces such as gallery guides and discussion prompts located throughout the gallery.

Interact as a community and fellow gallery-goers in the Concourse Gallery summer exhibition, Remnants of Casualties with works by Ohio Art League member-artists Char Norman and Julie Abijanac. Remnants of Casualties will be on display from July 1 through August 15, 2014. Be sure to attend the Reception on July 11 from 5 to 7 in the evening.

“As the natural environment is slowly deteriorating, and as a society we have lost a sense of interconnectedness, we are forced to deal with the casualties of our actions. Our work is based on found remnants of the natural world presented here as icons or reliquaries.”

Artists Julie Abijanac and Char Norman explore the themes of loss and displacement through mixed media work including paper, fiber, textiles and other natural materials. In the seasons of regrowth and abundance, Remnants of Casualties allows us take a moment to reflect on the slower, more naturalistic approaches to life.

Stay posted on upcoming exhibitions by viewing the Concourse Gallery Exhibit Schedule.

In the fall, don’t miss Celebrating UA, a community-based exhibition that will showcase two- and three-dimensional works by artists in the Upper Arlington Community. Celebrating UA will exhibit from August 20 through October 28 with a Reception on Thursday, September 18 from 5- 7 pm.
