- John Lee

- Rachel McFarlane

PoP Goes the DaRkroom!
COLLABORATIVE ART by
W. E. Arnold & Joss Parker
January 4- February 1, 2013
Closing reception Friday January 26, 4-8 pm
From the darkroom to the spotlight, the improbable collaborative artwork of W.E. Arnold and Joss Parker is a paradoxical love affair between two entirely different worlds, and the viewer is privileged to balance on the thread between them.
Arnold aggressively hunts for the authentic reality of his environment...His commitment to the aesthetics of traditional film and darkroom purity gives us a rich tapestry of gritty back alleys, luminous skylines, and urban realism.
Joss explores some of the world's iconic images with a glibness only found in Pop...
This union of... seemingly contradictory worlds that inhabit the same space touches something uniquely contemporary, which is perhaps why it works so damn well.
Music by Greg Hale

Tony is an Oberlin, OH based painter. His work explores the relationship between inner and outer beauty, glamour and gore. His bold lines dominate the wood panels he works on. He balances solid black expressive lines with splashes of color that invite the viewer to explore the layers that
unfold before them. Tony has a unique style that is personal yet easy to identify with. This is a must see show!

FEATURING THE WORK OF
John Lee &
APRIL 27- MAY 4, 2012
April 28, Saturday
Follow the Brush features the work of Pittsburgh-based artist John Lee
and Columbus-based Rachel McFarlane. Both artists work in a similar manner, allowing the materials they use to influence the progress of each composition as it’s being made. Although each painting or assemblage may begin as a general idea, the final pieces are not predetermined. This process grants the artists the freedom to Follow the Brush, often to an unexpected destination.
They were older than me
a solo exhibit by
April 4-22, 2012
Friday, April 13, 6-9 pm
Sunday, April 22, 3 pm
The exhibition features an installation of over 100 hand formed bricks with images of the eyes of women who died on September 11, 2001 in the World Trade Center. Each brick represents a woman who, at the time of attacks, was older than the artist, but whom Polansky, a survivor of the attack, is now older than. In addition to the brick installation, the exhibition also contains nine 8ft columns of paper with text from the deceased women’s obituaries. The text, pulled from The New York Times, focuses on each woman’s unrealized potential while reflecting American values. “For me this work is a contemplation of the true loss that occurs when life is lost in a disaster. It is also a comment about the way idealization obscures individuality.”
