City Center Gallery Summer 2017 Exhibitions

Founded to serve as a facilitator for independent local art, City Center Gallery in Urban Arts Space recognizes and assists emerging Ohio artists who are forging innovative careers and expanding conceptual practices. Through the leadership of  student assistants and the guidance of staff advisers, City Center Gallery commits itself to the current cultural revitalization of downtown Columbus by: providing professional experience, amplifying curricula vitae, and assisting artists in all exhibiting processes.

The 2017 summer line-up is below.

May 15–June 10
Reception and artist’s talk: Thursday, June 8, 5–7 pm

With Ingrained, Cleveland-based artist Paula Izydorek creates a series of abstract paintings with interwoven linear planes to express her interest in environmental effects on one’s biochemistry. The June 8 reception is free and open to the public.

The Waiting Room: Reenactments from a Life
June 29–July 25

In 2013, in search of a new direction, Jim Rubino began mechanizing ordinary objects laying around his studio and home. The result, four years later, is the over 150 mechanical pieces in his installation The Waiting Room: Reenactments from a Life. Each object moves — mimicking how it typically moved — once per hour in a repeating one-hour performance that reflects the cyclical nature and transience of life.
