It would be easy to survey contemporary art and assume it stole all its best moves from consumer product design and marketing. Whether it is the epic gloss and shine of Jeff Koons, the flawless finishes of Anish Kapoor, the pop-infused stylings of Takashi Murakami, or the cool, oversized appropriations of Richard Prince, art today […]

Review: Utopia Banished at The Angela Meleca Gallery

Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger Review: Utopia Banished at The Angela Meleca Gallery

Angela Meleca Gallery kicked off it’s fourth season of exhibitions with a bang. Utopia Banished, curated by George Rush and Ryland Wharton, presents a compelling visual exploration of our unflagging (and as yet unfulfilled) desire to create a perfect society. Using Kim Stanley Robinson’s award-winging Mars Trilogy as their inspiration, Rush and Wyland have assembled […]

On June 1 it was announced that Michael Goodson would resign his position as Director of Exhibitions at the Beeler Gallery at Columbus College of Art and Design and assume the role of Senior Curator of Exhibitions at the Wexner Center for the Arts.

The idea of the artist holding a mirror up to society has become such a common critical trope that I’m wary of even invoking it. To the degree that all art has some form of cultural context, it’s nearly impossible for it not to reflect culture back in some way or another. The mirror then […]

You’ll recall this past August Wild Goose Creative hosted The Art of the Leviathan, an exhibition of artwork based on the novel Moby Dick. Now, as the year draws to a close Moby Dick surfaces again, this time at the Cultural Arts Center in an exhibition titled The Whiteness of the Whale. Given this confluence of like-minded […]

Review: US IS THEM at the Pizzuti Collection

Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger Review: US IS THEM at the Pizzuti Collection

I liked US IS THEM when it opened in September. I like it even more now. They say context is everything. Given the recent national conversations on race, ethnicity, religion, culture, and security it strikes me as unlikely that the folks at the Pizzuti Collection could have timed this exhibition any better if they’d tried.
