Join us for an opening reception of "Salon" featuring furniture by Columbus-native Loran Bohall and “Rural Weaving: Energy in the Landscape” by Laura Foster Nicholson, a New Harmony-based textile artist. This event coincides with the 6th Street Arts Alley Event, held just outside the front doors of the gallery!
A 4th generation furniture maker, Loran Bohall founded Bohall Design and Fabrication in 2016. As a small business, working with local sawyers and providers, collaborating with the community, and employing a small team of hard working craftspeople continues to be central to the mission. Bohall Design and Fabrication is committed to upholding and honoring true craftsmanship while designing and fabricating pieces that last generations.
Loran grew up outside of Columbus, IN and before pursuing woodwork full time, was the founder of Columbus Bike Co-op.
Laura Foster Nicholson
Since moving to Indiana from Chicago in 2006, my woven work has been an ongoing study of the landscape and rural structures between southern Indiana and Chicago. Subtle color and textural shifts in fields, light, and seasons are of real fascination. Ever simplifying process has been a goal of mine, reflecting an awareness of the strict limitations of woven structure. The aim is to push the color and simple forms to perform a large descriptive task.

About the Gallery
411 is a community arts gallery and cultural space for exhibitions, events, and collaborations. Managed by the Columbus Area Arts Council, 411 Gallery is located in downtown Columbus on the 6th Street Arts Alley, a creative hub at the heart of the city.
Managed by the Columbus Area Arts Council, 411 is made possible by grants from the Efroymson Family Fund, City of Columbus, Columbus Museum of Art & Design and by donations from the community.
The 411 Community Studio is a flexible space for youth arts and emerging creatives to work, meet and collaborate. Made of custom plywood panels and built-in furniture, the space is meant to evolve as artists work with the community to reimagine the exhibition wall into temporary installations. The Community Studio is part of the Columbus Area Arts Council's inaugural residency project and was made possible through generous support from Heritage Fund: The Community Foundation of Bartholomew County.
Learning Patterns Mural
Expanding on LAA Office's research into the design and construction of the Cleo Rogers Memorial Library, Learning Patterns reinterprets historic diagrams used for organizing the library's furniture layouts. A mural installed on the gallery's east facade creates a larger composition that celebrates an important part of Columbus' design heritage. Funding for the mural was generously provided by the Columbus Museum of Art & Design.
