The CICA Museum Publishes “Artist Statement” Art-Book, My Work Included
by Daric Gill
After finishing out the year on display at the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art Museum in South Korea, my painting Absolute: Earnest has come home. The exhibition called Artist Statement has been published in an art-book that showcases a side-by-side documentation of the artwork and the artist’s statement. The concept behind the exhibit and the art-book is to show the connections between an artist’s work and their written philosophies. Read more below.
It is my extreme pleasure to announce that Absolute: Earnest has been accepted for exhibition at the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art Museum in South Korea. During the months of October & November, my work will be included among other international artists in Artist Statement, an exhibition that triumphs the connections between an artist’s work and their written philosophies. In addition to the exhibition, an art-book will be published that will showcase a side-by-side documentation of the artwork and the artist’s statement. Read more about the exhibition below.
The Schumacher Gallery is one of Columbus’ most hidden gems. Their massive donor-based collection is tucked comfortably away on the 4th floor of Capital University’s Blackmore Library. Among contemporary names like Warhol, Chagall, Nevelson, Picasso, and Calder, the public can also see a wide array of African, Inuit, Asian, and European greats. I’m proud to be part of “Elements”, a grouping of Ohio-based artists whom (as the show title points out) thematically spark from natural elements in some fashion.

by Daric Gill We’ve all broken something valuable. Maybe it was accidentally denting your parents brand new car. Maybe it was hitting a pop fly right through a neighbor’s window. Accidents happen — but some accidents are a little more valuable than others. Here are a few times where precious items of human civilization have been accidentally destroyed. Forever.
Remember, some pieces of art are actually meant to be played with or engaged. In that case have the best time ever! However, if you’re not supposed to touch it, don’t! This isn’t just a suggestion made by the crusty people at the mean ol’ galleries & museums. Priceless works of art are often damaged as a result of carelessness, greasy hands, and the all-too-common, “I just wanted to touch it” action. Don’t believe me?…. Read on for some stomach churning examples.
