Even though so many things have gone virtual to accommodate for COVID-19, virtual experiences often do not compare to live ones when it comes to art. Some art just has to be seen. Yayoi Kusama’s Fireflies on the Water is one of those experiences best seen in person. Currently, you can view Fireflies on the […]

Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger Art Review: Ohio Diaspora – Art from the Collection of the National Afro-American Museum and Cultural Center and Ohio Artists

I suppose we take our art where we can get it now. Whether it’s the Short North hosting a virtual Gallery Hop, the Wexner Center ramping up their “Off Center” initiatives, or the Columbus Museum of Art introducing the hashtag #myCMAathome, institutions and arts advocates continue to adapt to the stay at home world by making art […]

Art Review: Ladies First: A Century of Women’s Innovations in Comics and Cartoon Art

Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger Art Review: Ladies First: A Century of Women’s Innovations in Comics and Cartoon Art

It’s no coincidence that Ladies First opens with a series of political cartoons promoting women’s suffrage. After all, this year marks the centennial of the ratification and adoption of the 19th Amendment. One can imagine no better way for the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum to celebrate that milestone than by highlighting the contributions […]

We’re at a point in our collective gallery calendars where the art of Central Ohio is front and center. In a New Light: Alice Schille and the American Watercolor Movement and Greater Columbus 2019 (both on view at the Columbus Museum of Art through September 29) have filled our summer with stunning, home-grown talent. Similarly, the […]

Art Review: Summer Exhibitions at the Wexner Center

Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger Art Review: Summer Exhibitions at the Wexner Center

At first blush, the three exhibitions currently on view at the Wexner Center can seem disparate and distinct. Jason Moran’s life-sized installations of legendary jazz venues operate on a scale far grander than Cecilia Vicuña’s modest and low tech precarios, while Barbara Hammer’s video installations and mixed-media works play on technological experimentation and exploration. These differences are […]

Art Review: Double Yellow Line, by Danielle Julian Norton at Angela Meleca Gallery

Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger Art Review: Double Yellow Line, by Danielle Julian Norton at Angela Meleca Gallery

“A place for everything, and everything in its place.” It’s a proverb we were familiar with long before Marie Kondo and her exhortations to tidy up burst into popular consciousness. It’s also an adage you might keep in mind as you view Double Yellow Line, the gallery specific exhibition of works by Danielle Julian Norton […]
