Three well-respected local artists — Devon Palmer, Eric Rausch and Rex Brown — put their talents together to create a juried art exhibition featuring 82 pieces (from 50 artists) showcasing the hollow vessel.
The works are built in wood, glass, or ceramic mediums, which complements the three jurors’ backgrounds. Palmer is a wood-turner and instructor working at the Columbus Idea Foundry. Brown is the executive director of the Franklinton glass-blowing studio Glass Axis. And Rausch is a ceramics artist who manages the ceramics studio at the Cultural Arts Center — where “Hallowform” opens this weekend.
This trio has chosen pieces that best encompass the exhibit’s mission statement, “To further understanding of the ‘format’ across mediums — shape, texture, primary mass, usability, ceremony, rhythm, shoulder, mouth and lid — the common language of the hollow vessel.”
An opening reception is 6-8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21 where a Best in Show winner will be announced, along with individual champs for each category in wood, glass and ceramic. — Jesse Tigges
