Checking In At The OAL Spring Exhibit, Urban Arts Space
By Daric Gill
Exhibition duration: May 24 – July 9, 2016
After absorbing some sunshine for a bit at the Scioto Mile Riverside Park, I decided to take some time to absorb some culture at the OAL’s Spring Exhibition held at the OSU Urban Arts Space. Walking into the massive air-conditioned transformative space, I saw that my selected painting, “Absolute: Ignition” happens to greet patrons on their way in. It’s a relatively small painting, but prominently displayed and I was happy to see that it’s among the first pieces one sees upon entering.
The show is one of the best OAL exhibitions I’ve seen in years. Viewers can gaze upon sculptures, paintings, photos, ceramics, video & electronics work, among others. Below are a few handfuls of images that represents what the show has to offer. There are a few gallery shots that didn’t make this article, for that I apologize. If you have the chance, I strongly urge you to visit the show by July, 9 ’16. Greatness can be seen!
