PatronArt, an online fine art community and marketplace specializing in custom commissions, is curating a student art show September, Friday 13 at 7 p.m.
PatronArt is glad to work with the Idea Foundry once again for Franklinton Friday, a monthly gallery night across the popular art district. For the show, PatronArt head curator Ralph Walters curated student artwork from Gladden House, Amanda Clearcreek, Hilliard Davidson, and Westerville Central High School.
“Part of curating gallery shows is offering encouragement to artists,” said Walters, who has curated dozens of shows in and around Ohio over the past 20 years. “For most artists, having their work publicly displayed is serious validation for doing what they love. Being able to encourage young artists in that way is really gratifying for everyone.”
PatronArt and the Idea Foundry look forward to another fun gallery night together. Both companies are excited use September’s Franklinton Friday to celebrate the new school year and support teaching art to kids. They will also be celebrating student musicians with performances from the Franklinton Prep Steel Drum band and Parker Louis.
“The September edition of the Franklinton Fridays Music Series is a one-of-a-kind event all about empowering young artists and musicians,” said Idea Foundry board member Callie King. “There will be kid comedy, games, crafts and interactive stations for families to explore, all for free. Everyone is welcome to help us celebrate these young artists and have a great time.”
The L-Gallery is located on the second floor of The Idea Foundry, a popular stop for gallery hoppers during monthly Franklinton Fridays. Those interested in visiting the L-Gallery can stop by during Idea Foundry business hours, 8 a.m – 7 p.m. Monday through Friday or from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the second Friday of every month during Franklinton Fridays.
