June 17 – Aug. 2, 2014
Dublin Arts Council gallery
7125 Riverside Dr., Dublin, Ohio
opening reception Tuesday, June 17, 6 to 8 p.m.
Uncommon Objects is a three-person exhibition that examines the lines that divide object, representation and perception. Columbus-based artists Andrew Ina, Luke Ahern and Michael Ambron provide us with a series of paintings that expose the common threads connecting their practices while also revealing the unique manner in which each addresses the exhibition’s concept. The distinctive material language that each has developed to define boundaries of perceptual experience infuse the exhibition with uncommon vitality.
Ina uses his entire body to deliver an impact onto the surface of his paintings. Each artwork is choreographed spontaneously, combining the delicate act of illusion against impulsive layers of marks. Ina has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus and a Master of Arts in 3D Animation from Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow, Scotland.
Ahern maintains a rigorous studio practice and is also an active musician. His artwork explores “the inherent tension between surface, image and object.” Ahern received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio and a Master of Fine Arts from University of Wisconsin Madison.
Ambron studies the balance between tangible space and abstraction, exploring the various layers of vision framed within both theoretical and observable space. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia, and is a lecturer in painting and drawing at The Ohio State University.
Uncommon Objects opens with an artists’ reception Tuesday, June 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Dublin Arts Council, 7125 Riverside Dr., in Dublin. The exhibition will remain on view through Aug. 2. The reception and the exhibition are free of charge. Reception hors d’oeuvres are provided by Bleu & Fig, Dublin Arts Council’s Visual Art Series catering sponsor Gallery hours are Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Details: www.dublinarts.org or 614.889.7444.
