The Simulacra Fayum Chronicles by Stephanie E. Steele - NOW SHOWING!

April 2014

Stephanie Steele's first solo exhibition in three years features a series of portraits and body figures that capture the human image in a moment of transition or transformation. The images capture the possibility of sudden loss - how quickly can our identities be wiped or washed away?

In addition to the artwork, Stephanie Steele is preparing some of the artifacts of her creative process to showcase as well.

Please join us for a gallery reception on Sunday April 6, or see the artwork throughout the month of April.

SEARCH: A Generative Exploration of Risk and Comfort 

September 2014

An examination of the play between intimate familiarity and constant curiosity over the process of an artist's life.

This exhibit is a collaboration between Molly Ryan, a young photographer exploring her roots, and her grandmother Ardyse Mund a printmaker who is using this show to take risks in order to branch out. The artists' work reflects on the process of aging, the questions we ask, and the risks we take because of the passage of time.

 

Artifacts of Creative Action, a collaboratively created map 

October 2014

Centered on 2491 Summit Street and radiating outwards, a giant map on the WGC gallery wall will attempt to chronicle all the remnants of artistic, creative, or community action in our pocket of Columbus. It will be crafted over the course of a summer of walks, conversations, photographs, and stories. Leading this playful cartography project is Jessie Glover Boettcher, WGC's artistic director. During the month of October the map will be interactive - guests at Wild Goose Creative will be invited to add a pin to the map marking a story or experience of their own, or an idea about the possiblities they see for a particular spot on the map.

Interested in talking a walk to contribute to the map? Contact Jessie to schedule a walk.

Paper sculpture by Sarah Fulmer

At Wild Goose Creative we love to feature artwork that tells a story. Our gallery wall features work by emerging and established local artists working in all kinds of visual art mediums. More often than not the artwork involves a collaboration, a surprising project, or the personal story of the artist.

Gallery Night: an opportunity to meet the artist and celebrate his or her work. Sometimes we include a Q&A session with the artist. It's always a good time with food to enjoy. Days of the month vary - check the links below for the upcoming dates. The artwork is displayed at Wild Goose Creative throughout the month. Contact us for more information on Gallery Night.

#instacalendar by Carl McKinney - March 2014 

Columbus photographer Carl McKinney spent 2013 documenting his life with an Instagram photo each day, and he crafted a calendar project complete with hashtag. During the project, he pushed himself to funnel his life experiences through a filter, hone the aesthetic of the project, and connect with his community through the calendar. You can see a full year of the project - 365 images - and snap your own #instacalendar image on March 1 during Gallery Night. More details can be found here. Or - you can come see the work during the whole month of March.

 If you would like more information or would like to be involved, contact us. Plans are now underway for the 2015 gallery season!

 

Our 2012-13 gallery season was made possible in part by a generous grant from The Greater Columbus Arts Council.
