Columbus, Ohio-based artist Christopher Burk creates meticulously painted landscapes of oft-overlooked urban environments. His works impart an engaging atmospheric quality, and encourage the viewer to look at the geography around them in a new way. This exhibition features his newest series, Stillness: Nocturnes, as well as selected paintings and drawings from past bodies of works.
Art 360°: Contemporary Art Hatching Across OhioNov 2017–Mar 2018
Art 360° showcases the incredible artistic creations of 48 contemporary artists from across Ohio. Each artist started with the same unique canvas: an Ostrich egg. Working in all artistic media from oil, acrylic and watercolor paints to encaustic, fiber, and ceramics, from printmaking, photography, and pen & ink, to light works and sculpture, the Art 360° artists transformed the Ostrich eggs into works of great beauty that refer to traditions in high art — the Imperial Easter eggs crafted by Peter Carl Fabergé — and to folk traditions as well — beeswax-decorated Ukrainian pysanaky eggs.

SMoA plans to host a number of events featuring talks by some of the Art 360° artists as well as special programming for children based upon this wonderful exhibition.
