GCAC 2016 Community Arts Partnership Awards + Exhibition

Excited to be included in the Greater Columbus Arts Council's CAP awards & exhibition. The exhibition will include twenty works from ten local artists and takes place September 2-15 at RAW Gallery in Columbus, Ohio. 

The two pieces I chose to submit are dealing with the weight felt in the world today, and the yearning for escape.

A little something GCAC wrote About the Community Arts Partnership awards:

The Art Council’s Community Arts Partnership Award program, now in its 33rd year, recognizes the community’s crucial contributions to the arts including financial support, non-cash contributions, volunteer involvement and board participation. Strong partnerships between businesses, community members and the arts stimulate economic growth, promote the city’s revitalization, encourage tourism and enhance Columbus’ cultural image and give life to the city.

The event will honor individual and business winners in six categories at a luncheon on Thursday, October 13 at COSI Columbus, 333 W. Broad St.

Each year, as part of the program, the Arts Council purchases the work of three local artists to present to the three business honorees. Ten local artists are selected to show two works each at the CAP Art Selection show in August. Three works are chosen through a jury process by the Arts Council’s former and current board of trustees to present at the awards program in October.
