Art openings held today
- Published: March 4, 2012
Art lovers about town will be happy to learn that they can treat themselves to two opening receptions in the village today. From 2 to 4 p.m., the Glen Helen Atrium Gallery will celebrate the opening of local artist Russ Shaw’s “Birdsong Hill: low-relief wood images.” The show features three-dimensional nature scenes depicted on a variety of native Ohio wood. According to Shaw, much of his inspiration comes from observing nature on his Yellow Springs farm; occasionally, says Shaw, the idea for a piece “picks me as I gaze across the fields and woods where I live.” Birdsong Hill will be on display through April 29; open gallery hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission to the opening reception, and to the exhibit’s regular gallery hours, is free.
Glen House Art, housed by local bed and breakfast Glen House Inn, will host an opening reception for “Connection: The African Sculpture Collection of Glenn Owen” today from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Photos from the collection and a full artist’s statement from Owen are available at http://www.glenhouseart.com. The exhibit will be on display through April 11, and gallery hours are held each Sunday, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
