We are pleased to introduce Melissa Parrott-Quimby, Joanna Manousis, Andrew Hayes and Cedric Cox to our clients and visitors in our new exhibition ‘This is Contemporary Art’ featuring over 20 artists working in a wide variety of media. The exhibition will be open until October 26 and all works by new and existing artists can be seen on the exhibits page of the gallery’s website.
The paintings of local artist Cedric Cox fall between surrealism and representational abstraction. Themes in his work range from mythical literature to the relationships between the physical body, musical allegories, and natural and man-made landscapes. Cox graduated from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture Art and Planning. Find our more information about Cox on his website.
In Hayes work, he counteracts the harshness of the metal with the delicacy of the book page. Growing up in Tuscan, Arizona and studying sculpture at Northern Arizona University exposed Hayes to the desert landscape inspiring much of his early sculptural work and style in fabricated steel. He worked in welding and continued to explore a variety of materials, which eventually led to steel and book pages. Visit Andrew’s squarespace to view more of his works.
British born artist and designer Joanna Manousis now lives and works in Columbus after receiving her Masters of Fine Arts in sculpture from Alfred University in New York. She re-appropriates objects that exist in the world as a device to lure and engage a universal audience. Glass is primarily her medium to induce reflection, both physically and metaphorically, in the viewer. Visit Joanna’s website to learn more about her works.
Ceramics shaped as linear vessels by Melissa Parrott-Quimby come in a multitude of colors and sizes. She received her Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Delaware before moving to Indianapolis as an Adjunct Faculty member at the Herron School of Art and Design, also serving as a member of National Council for Education in the Ceramic Arts.
