I’m excited to announce that the Massillon Museum will be hosting a solo show of my artwork in 2022! Currently slated for the summer months, the exhibition will present works from “The Absolute” series of oil paintings. Located in northeast Ohio, MassMu belongs to the national museum advocacy conglomerate  American Alliance of Museums and has had backing from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the Ohio Arts Council (OAC), and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

Naturally, there’s still a lot of planning and time between now and the summer of 2022, but I’m enthusiastic about the opportunity and wanted to share this exciting news as it came in. More info and posts will come as things get buttoned down, but I’d like to be the first to thank the museum and all of their supporters for the excellent groundwork that they have laid for artists. I look forward to it!

New “Columbus In Cuba” Documentary To Debut In Ohio Before Traveling To Film Festivals

New “Columbus In Cuba” Documentary To Debut In Ohio Before Traveling To Film Festivals

by Daric Gill

CubaIt’s been my extreme privilege to have been included among a group of artists who traveled to Cuba on an artist exchange and again for an international exhibition. Last spring, we were invited to exhibit in the 13th Havana Biennial and ConnectArt in Havana and Matanzas. Among the group of artists were two Ohio filmmakers, Nikki and Matt Swift. Together they created a documentary film that will soon debut in Columbus before traveling to other film festivals.

Columbus in Cuba will make its debut with a free screening at Gateway Film Center on Sunday, Jan. 12, at 2 p.m., followed by a free screening at the Columbus Museum of Art, in conjunction with (my undergrad alma mater) Columbus College of Art & Design, on Thursday, Jan. 16. with a reception at 5:30 p.m., a showing at 6 p.m., and a Q&A to follow. You can book tickets online for film at the CMA (click on their name above to go to their website).
