Art 360°: Contemporary Art Hatching Across Ohio

January 29 through March 26

The egg symbolizes life and plays a part in both Jewish and Christian religious holidays in springtime, be it the roasted egg on a Passover Seder plate, or the Easter egg acting as a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave. The decorated ostrich eggs in the gallery are the vision of collector Charles Bluestone. Moved by the elegant beauty of the ostrich egg, he provided the eggs as a “canvas” to artists from across Ohio. Inspired by the ovoid, each artist, working in their own media, brought their own vision to the surface and form. As a collection we see the breadth and depth of the talent of Ohio artists and how individual these visions and voices are.

In addition, Clarence Carter: Unhatched will also be on display. While Clarence Carter thought his “egg” series to be his most important, it is probably the least understood of his body of work. First appearing in the late series, the concept of reducing the human form to the ovoid shape can be witnessed from as early as 1947.
