Barbara Vogel to appear at Dublin Arts Center Gallery in April

Screen Shot 2015-01-29 at 3.33.02 PM
Ohio Art League member-artist extraordinaire Barbara Vogel, along with Marjorie Bender, will hostFamily and Friends, a moving and amusing look at the pivotal relationships of our lives and the people within them.
Family and Friends will be on display at the Dublin Arts Council from April 7 through May 16, 2015, with a public Opening Reception April 7 from 6- 8 PM.
Bender is best known for her clay sculptures, but also produces and exhibits drawings and paintings. Vogel’s background is in photography. Many of her works continue to connect to photographic images, often in unexpected ways. Vogel also was awarded for her accomplishments among the community at the Ohio Made festival the previous summer.
The artists excel in conveying the many dimensions of our closest relationships and in utilizing humor — sometimes whimsical, sometimes dark — to undercut sentimentality. Family and Friendsbrings together earlier and more recent works by both artists and will feature a new collaborative project that pays homage to a number of their mutual friends and mentors.
