Shift @ Wild Goose Creative

  • Wild Goose Creative 2491 Summit Street Columbus, OH, 43202 United States (map)

ROY G BIV Gallery presents Shift, a pop-up group show about changes and transitions, juried by local artist and educator Laurie VanBalen. 

Exhibiting Artists: William Cares, Katy Dai, Lou Eberhard, Emily Greenberg, Sasinun Kladpetch, Haley Manchon, Christina Polosky, Whitney Sage and Dan Jian. 


Juror Statement:

When there are 60 entries to a juried show that speak to you in compelling and thoughtful ways, being the juror does not come easy.  As these works were generally strong in design and skill, I found myself needing to rely on two vital questions to guide me through the selection process:  "How does the artist address the theme of this show and how affective is that communication?"   

There is a candor about these works, with a mix of integrity and intimacy, that gives great power to the art.  Ultimately, as I was choosing the final pieces for this exhibit, I had to allow my selection process to be as intuitive as the creation of art itself. 

I thank Roy G Biv for inviting me to be a part of this show whose "Shift" theme seems exceptionally poignant -- and synchronistic --  at this moment.   For, not only is Roy G Biv preparing their  'shift' to a new location, but on deeper levels, these works reflect profound personal transitions that are currently taking place in a country caught up in its own major shift, as if trying to find its way back to itself.
