Painter Jeremy Long, who lives and works in Dayton, will exhibit a collection of oil paintings in an exhibition entitled New Paintings. Long’s highly detailed environments, to which he refers as “spatial worlds,” he says, “can also be thought of as advocating thoughtfulness over excitement, or poetic meaning over novelty.” Of the objective of painting, Long states, “The goal as I see it is to, on one hand, create an ordered, harmonious vision and, on the other hand, to understand that everything seen is relative.”

Long earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from American University in Washington, D.C. He currently serves as Associate Professor of Art and Art History, also at Wright State University.

This year’s juror, Geoff Riggle, received a Bachelor of Science in Art Education from Ball State University and a Master of Fine Arts in metalsmithing and jewelry design from Miami University. With a firm foundation in traditional metalsmithing techniques and jewelry design practice, his current body of work spans the mediums of metals and jewelry, sculpture, and photography, and forges ground into digital design and practice. Riggle has exhibited nationally and internationally and has been featured in a number of publications, including Showcase 500 Rings: New Directions in Art Jewelry (2012) by Marthe Le Van. Currently, Riggle is Head of Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing in the Department of Art at Miami University.
