Step inside Bexley's Art Access Gallery, and you'll be greeted by the giant, weary face of a man sporting a four-pointed gold crown. That face stares out at you from the bright azure canvas of painter Ron Arps, who has several other crown-wearing subjects in this month's exhibition at Art Access Gallery.

Step inside Bexley's Art Access Gallery, and you'll be greeted by the giant, weary face of a man sporting a four-pointed gold crown. That face stares out at you from the bright azure canvas of painter Ron Arps, who has several other crown-wearing subjects in this month's exhibition at Art Access Gallery.

Arps' paintings are only one-fifth of "Shifting Perspective," a bold collection of works by artists who are fairly new to the gallery. Near Arps' royalty hang vibrant, rainbow-colored abstract paintings by Megan Burkholder, serene, sunny landscapes by Frank Hobbs, more muted, smoky landscapes by Megan Lightell, and Jackson Pollock-inspired abstracts by Sharon Dougherty. Don't miss Dougherty's "Homage to Cy Twombly" - a timely tribute to the artist who died last month.
