Wow. there are a lot of opportunities to get involved in community arts this month. Get these on your calendar before it gets too full.
A Muse Gallery Argentinian Show
Muse Gallery is thrilled to represent many international artists, including Argentinian artists Sol Halabi, Tania Abrile, as well as the work of Jorje Chai, Tolosa and Susarte. As with all countries, turmoil, political upheaval, changes in environment, all work to influence the artists’ work. Sol Halabi and Tania Abrile, both young and in the world of academia, explore both the technical aspects of a painting, as well as the story making behind the scenes. Jorje Chai, Tolosa and Molina all explore the texture and natural elements abundant in their society, translated into visual form. Whether it’s the ancient hieroglyphics morphed into modern shapes, or leather used to recreate a body, or paper visualized as rock, all are taking the elements around them and telling a story of their lives. We hope you will take some time to enjoy our Argentinian View! Feel free to share your thoughts and images of the show on social media using #UArthere. Call 614-565-0314 for information and hours, or to be added to their mail list visit www.amusegallery.com
