Awarded 2022 GCAC Support for Professional Artists Grant

Awarded 2022 GCAC Support for Professional Individual Artists Grant

by Daric Gill

It is my pleasure to announce that I’ve been awarded a 2022 Greater Columbus Arts Council Support for Professional Artists: Individuals Grant. This year I have a few exhibitions that overlap in the fall. The need for lighter, hyper-accurate, & more professionally self-reliant tools is paramount. This funding will help provide materials & equipment that will be adding to or replacing tools that are much-used/lower-end. In addition, a portion of this funding will be used to create a piece that will be on display at the Center For Science and Industry (COSI) museum later this year. I’m super grateful to The Greater Columbus Arts Council! Thank you so much!

Special Thanks to the City of Columbus & Its Councilmembers.

I am grateful for your support. Thank you!

“Absolute: Allegory”, A Modern Fairy Tale

“Absolute: Allegory”, A Modern Fairy Tale

fine artwork by Daric Gill
“Absolute: Allegory”, Oil paint on reclaimed wood panel. 21 1/2” x 16 1/4”. 1.9.22.

“Absolute: Allegory” is a visual poem; a softly lit bedtime story of the sun and moon, a meandering journey, an example of the importance of life beyond the current moment. A sprig of crimson winter berries hovers to the right of a 2-pronged branch. The left side of the stick weaves through the circular voids in the pastel background. Subdued yellow and blue geometry hint at the celestial themes of this piece. They are purposeful nods to the interplay between crescent and full moons, an eclipse and the full sun, and daylight and nighttime views through an arched window. Like most of the work in this series, this painting is a story within a story. Read on for more.

2021 Looks Good! Awarded Grant To Help Streamline Precision In Workshop & Studio

Awarded Grant To Help Streamline Precision & Cleanliness In Workshop & Studio, 2021

by Daric Gill

It is my pleasure to announce that I’ve been awarded a Greater Columbus Arts Council Support for Professional Artists: 2021 Individuals grant in the amount of $1,000. An increased need to work from home or a localized studio space has naturally led to an immediate need for new tools that can adapt to both workshop & home studio work life. This funding will help provide a safer, cleaner, and more precise studio + work environment. The Greater Columbus Arts Council has continued their support for the arts in many ways during this unprecedented time & I’m personally very moved by their efforts!

Special Thanks to the City of Columbus & Its Councilmembers.
