CMAD (Columbus Museum of Art & Design) is happy to present “Upon My Recent Validation…” an exhibition of collages by Chad Serhal. Serhal provokes thought using nostalgia; a mother’s kitchen wallpaper design, a father’s favorite actor, or a line from a grandparent’s favorite book. He makes statements using play on words, juxtaposition, and defining titles to force a mundane scene into your consciousness. His work is all within a few inches big because the materials he uses are small.
Closing Reception: May 18th, 5 pm to 7 pm, Gallery Talk by Artist 6 pm
Seasons, featuring the hand-dyed textiles of Daren Pitts Redman, will be shown at Gallery 506 through the months of May and June.
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 4th, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm – Artist Talk at approximately 5:45 pm – Celebrate art and Cuatro de Mayo with Mexican-themed appetizers by Jeffrey Karr, Mexican beers, wine, and water.
Redman’s medium is quilts made from hand-dyed fabrics and representing abstract landscapes in textiles. The endless colors in the leaves, grasses, tree trunks, and moss in the Indiana landscape is a constant inspiration for every season of the year, as are memories of her grandmother’s embroidery work. Nature and travel are reoccurring themes, with only her own hand-dyed silks and cottons intuitively cut to represent her surroundings from her back yard or on travels through Europe and the United States.
Beginning their 9th year, the Columbus (Indiana) Farmer’s Market has grown to become a vital event for Columbus and neighboring communities with over 80 vendors featuring plants, produce, flowers, juried arts and crafts, artwork, concessions, and entertainment. SNAP/EBT cards accepted, with some vendors accepting credit cards.
May 6 (Saturday) 9:00 am - September 16 (Saturday) 12:30 pm est
