The Workshop includes digital photography, watercolors/acrylics, pencil, text incorporation, mixed media work with an opportunity for plain air painting and a floor-to-ceiling vista view activity room. Lodging and meals are included in the 7 day/6 night fee of $495/ participant.

Visit the Georgia O’Keefe studio and home on a tour of the landscape where participants can see the magnificent scenery from where the artist painted.

“Year after year, people return to reconnect, reaffirm, grow and evolve. We absorb the lessons offered not only by the outstanding programs but by the soul enriching siren song of this place. Here we become a part of the place as the place becomes a part of us.”

Central Park Apartments: Mitchell Lippencott

IMG_0950

The Central Park Apartments have beautiful, luxury apartments located at 105 Radio City Blvd., Columbus, OH 43235.

Now through August 10th, they will be showing works by OAL member, Mitchell Lippencott.

Lobby Hours:

Monday-Friday 10am-6pm

Saturday 10am-5pm

Sunday 12:15pm-5pm.

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
