On March 13, 2016, we attended the first in a series of receptions for the traveling show, Art 360°: Contemporary Art Hatching Across Ohio at the Southern Ohio Museum (SOM). Curated by Charles L. Bluestone, this exhibition features the work of 48 Ohio artists, including myself, with the goal to raise funds to support The Ohio Art League. Both the exhibition and this adorable museum are worth the journey to Portsmouth, and while you are there you must check out the levy murals! In addition to their main exhibition, the SOM has an impressive permanent collection which includes the Art of the Ancients and The Clarence Carter Collection. We were also treated to a performance by the students of the Cirque D'Art circus school! As if the day were not amazing enough, SOM Executive Director, Mark Chepp and SOM Artistic Director, Charlotte Gordon, opened their home for a post reception party. Their home, a renovated store near the museum, contains their living quarter, studios and an impressive collection of art!
The next location for the eggs will be the Columbus Museum of Art with a reception on April 21st!
