It’s almost that time of year to go to the Ohio State Fair to see the Fine Arts Exhibition. Amidst the livestock, dairy and butter sculpture displays found on the fairgrounds in July is an amazing display of visual art as well as contemporary video and short films. I make it a point to enter work in the juried exhibition each year.
In the 2012 edition of 2D and 3D work was juried by Jon Cook, Executive Director Peggy R. McConnell Arts Center of Worthington and Ardine Nelson of Columbus.
I will be exhibiting “Pluot”, “Honey Crisp” and “Japanese Pear”. Bridgette has two paintings in the professional division. Other 2-D artists showing work in the professional division this year are:
