Holding Space by Amy Greely

This body of work explores the concept of holding space both literally and metaphorically. The symbolism of a container – a space in which to bear witness, to listen deeply, to validate the experience of another – is expressed with a macro view of relationships and community found in nature. Lichens thrive among fungi in a mutualistic relationship and trees communicate with each other through fungal networks.

We share our planet with a multitude of living organisms in radical interdependence. Yet, who speaks for those who dwell just beyond our perception and those whose voices we cannot hear?

Living in Color by Daren Redman

Daren’s use of vibrant color is influenced by her home’s surroundings in Brown County, Nashville, Indiana. American Abstract Impressionists inspire the bold shapes in her quilts. 

Daren’s designs begin as small-scale sketches on paper. Next, the drawing is photographed and enlarged into a paper “cartoon" in her studio. She then chooses a color palette from her hand-dyed fabrics and cuts them into shapes. Finally, she meticulously sews the forms together and quilts each piece by machine. Each new work takes over three months to create. 

 

Sewing and quilt-making are prevalent in Daren's family history. She owns quilts made by her ancestors, deepening her connection between art and self.

Community Studio

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.
