Write Here: Graffiti Takes Center Stage

Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger Write Here: Graffiti Takes Center Stage

Compared to gallery and museum shows, writing about graffiti presents some pretty unique challenges. For starters, no one has ever provided me with a press release about new graffiti in our area.

Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger Review: Fiber: Sculpture 1960-Present

I was wrong. Or maybe I was just taught wrong. Is there a difference? I’m not sure. See, I learned most of  what I know about modern fiber art in the decidedly unheady ’80s. I was enrolled in classes at OSU. At the time there were a handful of art history classes that covered modern […]

I cleared out some space on my calendar on Friday so I could enjoy a mini art field trip. My intention was to catch up on some area artists and venues, both old and new. The fact is there are a lot of great places to see art in Columbus, certainly more than I typically […]
