Exhibit preview: "Persistence of Nature"

Elizabeth Weinstein, Columbus Alive contributor

On display now at the Decorative Arts Center of Ohio are sculptures and paintings by James Mason, and encaustics and oils by Karen Rumora. Mason, a postmodern sculptor, is known for his topiaries (he's the mastermind behind Columbus' Topiary Park), as well as his bronze sculptures and wooden figures. Painter Rumora is known for colorful landscapes that blur contemporary and traditional boundaries.
