Installation begins this week as we prepare the beautiful Ernsthausen gallery for the best work of 2017. Here are four more painting segments to kindle your curiosity for Visions Revealed on June 16th.
FRED WAGNER is a very creative guy! He has been making his unique artistic statements in both AOS Painting and Ceramic studios for 13 years. Fred prefers to use markers colored pencils and pens on paper for his colorful geometric designs. However, inspired by a visitor’s purse, he substitutedfabric markers to design cloth for his “Fashion Model Bag”. In Ceramic studio Fred is even more adventurous. He enriches his pottery and clever sculptural forms with incised lines, glazes with vivid colors and gives his art imaginative titles. (Tokyo is a favorite subject.) Fred may be a quiet worker, but he has a fantastic sense of humor.
TIM SMITH loves to draw – really loves to draw! He could spend hours at the drawing board making meticulous renderings of house floor plans, building exteriors with all the ornamentation and details. Then, suddenly, he has switched subjects and is drawing animals or his favorite celebrities. Tim has been making art at AOS since 2004. He works exclusively with ball point pen, markers colored pencils.
Tracey Lynch enjoys the creative social atmosphere of Artists’ Open Studio. She makes very delicate drawings with colored pencil and uses watercolor and watercolor pencils during painting studio. But Tracey seems to be even fonder of working with clay. In Ceramic studio last year, she created a lovely birdhouse and several whimsical figures. With her cheerful personality Tracey offer lots of fun for all of us at AOS.

ALBERT GREENLIEF may end his busy workday playing on a sports team with his friends, or creating art work in our AOS studios. Although his busy schedule has limited his drawing time, some of his botanical art is still available. Clay is his art medium of choice and he enjoys making sturdy vessels and imaginative sculptural pieces. Be sure to check his gallery page to see more of his work.
RICK FLETCHER always has a narrative to share about his work and often cites movies or videos which inspired it. He enjoys drawing caricatures of favorite celebrities or cartoon favorites. But, Rick is beginning to feel more adventurous and will have some very different work to show in the Visions Revealed 2015 Exhibit in June.
TRACEY BARTLETT has surprised herself this year with drawing skills that led to several great pieces. She and her twin sister Stacey have a successful micro-enterprise business making and selling hand-tied fleece blankets. Tracey’s pastel painting, “Sydney Skyline” was selected for the VSA Accessible Expressions Ohio 2014 touring exhibit. Some of her art is for sale.
