Reid Middle Schoolers used the Smithsonian-Harvard Astrophysical Observatory’s robotic telescopes to take images of the cosmos. Students in Matt Warrington's 6th grade STEM class and 7th and 8th graders in art teacher Jessica Karr's digital art class compared how the human eye and the telescopes capture images. The students used robotic telescopes to explore the universe and requested images of those areas they "captured." They colorized their own images of stars and galaxies in the same way professional astronomers do, and wrote poetry inspired by images captured by the Hubble Telescope. As a capstone project, the students created watercolor and acrylic paintings for this on-line exhibit that were inspired by the images they captured through the robotic telescopes.
Michelle Stitzlein creates large scale sculpture from recycled materials. She works in a large studio converted from a former grange hall in Baltimore, Ohio. See video of the work for this exhibition in progress at Michelle’s studio.
Her work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions in galleries and museums nationwide, including the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center, Auburn, NY; Appleton Museum of Art, Ocala, FL; Cedarhurst Center for the Arts, Mt. Vernon, IL; Mulvane Art Museum, Topeka, KS; Warm Springs Gallery, Charlottesville, VA; Carnegie Mellon University / Miller Gallery, Pittsburgh, PA; COSI, Columbus, OH; and the Franklin Park Conservatory, Columbus, OH.
Support for this exhibition comes, in part, from Clark County Solid Waste District, Meadow View Growers, Far North Computers and Courtyard by Marriott.
Story Retold: Prints by Annie Lee-Zimerle (Chakeres Interactive Art Lab)Nov 11, 2016-May 21, 2017
Through printmaking and painting, Annie Lee-Zimerle retells popular narratives via personal experiences. While watching her children play dress-up she wonders what compels children to act as others and explores this play by positioning herself as popular characters.
Lee-Zimerle is an assistant professor and currently teaches drawing and printmaking at Cedarville University.
The Dayton/Kyoto Invitational is an international print exchange between the Dayton Printmakers’ Cooperative and Gen Studio Group in Kyoto, Japan. The groups have been exchanging prints for simultaneous portfolio exhibitions in the Dayton, Ohio and Kyoto, Japan areas since 2003.
Each year a theme is determined by one of the two groups. The theme chosen for this portfolio is “STORM.” Participating artists interpret the theme and create an image using a printmaking process or a combination of processes. Included in this exhibition are works by 21 artists from Japan and 18 from Dayton.
