By Columbus Alive
From the February 16, 2012 edition

The City Center Gallery at OSU Urban Arts Space ordinarily shows work by local artists. To celebrate Columbus’ bicentennial, the student-run gallery is hosting an exhibition of art by people from all over the state. By opening the show up to everyone, the gallery hoped to paint a broader picture of Ohio’s creative achievements.

“We thought it would be neat to see what Ohio has produced over the years,” explained Katie Poole, the gallery’s director.

“OHIOCENTRIC” will feature 62 paintings, photographs, installations and other works by 50 artists, all of whom currently or previously lived in Ohio. Don’t miss the chance to get to know artists from other parts of the state.
