THE FUNDRAISER

Lauren Whearty proposed this group painting exhibition to The Ohio State's Urban Art Space, hoping to gather some great young painters who have some overlapping interests in materiality, imagery, and abstraction - while maintaining a personal language and perspective.

In order for this exhibition to happen, we need help.  By raising enough money to ship the paintings to and from the gallery for this exhibition, we can make it happen!  Many of the artists are in graduate school, and recently finished with school, while others are more established.  However, shipping artwork is expensive.

THE CATALOGUE

As a record of the exhibition (and a gift to our donors) there will be a DIY catalogue which includes images of the artists' work, as well as poems by Sasha Fletcher.  Since Sasha went to art school, he has a great understanding of visual art, and of visual language.  I also thought this would be far more interesting than a description of the show, or a longwinded explanation of it.  Since many won't be seeing the exhibition in person this will serve as a visual essay and an experience of its own.

This is Sasha's book:
