Hamilton, Ohio – In an exhibition of abstract art titled slide, four Ohio artists offer both playful and dangerous associations with movement. With an emphasis on process, each artist allows physical materials and action to lead to the revelation of the artwork. The slide exhibition at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts opens on Saturday, December 8, 2012 and is on view through February 8, 2013.
Using multiple layers, Oxford artist Pamela DeCoker turns paint into a cascade of colorful repeated forms.
Oxford sculptor Alysia Fischer uses cutting, draping and sewing to make discarded and reclaimed innertube rubber seem to come alive in creature-like shapes and lacy suspended forms.
Vibrant energetic paintings by Kim Krause of Cincinnati attempt to make visual the imagined emotional impacts of the revelation of a great and formidable secret.
CK Nichelson of Cincinnati suspends color and shape in layers of painted medium, like bubbles sliding under a surface of ice.
The opening reception for slide is Saturday, December 8 from 6-8 p.m. before the EntertainmentPlus! performance Jazz! Byron Stripling at 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. This exhibition is sponsored by City of Sculpture. The reception is sponsored by MillerCoors and Butler Tech sponsors this reception's Gallery Gig, featuring musicians from Butler Tech School of the Arts led by music teacher Joe Jahnigan.
