Join the Ohio Art League and Upper Arlington’s Concourse Gallery as we host OAL member Ashley Shellhause’s An Introduction to Appaloosa Genetics. Curated by Michael May, Appaloosa Genetics is inspired by Shellhause’s three main interests: science, art, and horses. Through this intriguing and illuminating exhibition, the viewer will be guided through the role research plays in the art of creation.
Join us for the Opening Reception at the Concourse Gallery Thursday, December 11 from 5- 7 in the evening.
According to the informative book, Horse Color Explained, appaloosa horse coloring is controlled by at least five different genes, four of which cause pattern variations. The exhibition is comprised of abstract images that are accompanied with the details of the research to be more accessible to a wider audience.
An Introduction to Appaloosa Genetics will be on display from December 5, 2014 through January 4, 2015.
