Jeff Regensburger Jeff Regensburger A Dangerous Woman: Subversion and Surrealism in the Art of Honoré Sharrer

In the last gallery of the Columbus Museum of Art’s stellar exhibition A Dangerous Woman, visitors are prompted to answer the question, “Why do you think Honoré Sharrer was a dangerous woman?” It’s a fantastic question, and one that made me consider not just the singularly dangerous woman whose work is on view, but also […]

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.
