Reception: Thursday, April 21, 6 – 8pm

Bridgette Bogle, Ruffians, 2014, oil and mixed media on canvas, 10 x 46 in.

Painter Bridgette Bogle, who lives and works in Dayton, is exhibiting a series of mixed media paintings entitled Piecemeal. “This body of work was born out of my need to gather my failed pieces, examine them closely and find a way to reuse and remix them into new arrangements,” Bogle said of her collection. “Soon it felt necessary to intervene further, tearing, cutting, and exposing the guts of the work or veiling it under a blank mask of canvas. What started as an act of camouflage grew into a game of revelation.”

Bogle holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. She currently serves as Assistant Professor of Art at Sinclair Community College.

 

Jason Tanner Young, make/shift

April 18 – May 20, 2016

Reception: Thursday, April 21, 6 – 8pm

Jason Tanner Young, night time bristles and low beams (detail), 2015, mixed media, 43 x 9.5 x 6 in.

Sculptor Jason Tanner Young of Athens, Ohio will exhibit mixed media sculptures in make/shift. Young’s loosely narrative works, he says, “[ … ] Operate as markers. They tell a loose story, but function more as a description of an environment, an attitude or perception. [ … ] The work presented is composed of raw beliefs and curious fixations.  These truths open memories and start a stumbling internal dialogue.  Stories and lived events surface in the form of objects and installations.”

Young earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The University of Texas at Tyler. He currently serves as an instructor at Ohio University in Athens, teaching various courses both in sculpture and foundations in art.

May 31 – July 8, 2016

Reception: Thursday, June 2, 6 – 8pm

The View is a juried exhibition for artists living in Ohio and working in all media.

O’Connor wrote, “We strive for elegance, a way to seduce the viewer to stay just a moment longer, a moment we hope will take the viewer’s breath away, even for just one fraction of a nanosecond. Such is the life of an artist.”
