Contemporary Ohio Landscapes will welcome students back to Owens Community College.
The 45 pieces in the Terhune Gallery, the first of seven shows during the 2004-2005 academic year, include realistic oil paintings, metal vessels, ceramics, and photographs of aspects that compose the landscapes we see most often - earth movers and telephone poles.
Landscapes, says gallery director Wynn Perry, are universal. Eight artists offer their vision: Brad Phalin, photographs; Mary Pencheff, photographs; Ann Tubbs, majolica ceramics; John Reddington, realistic paintings; Constandena Mandros, paintings; Danielle N. Crissman, hammered copper sculptures; Lanna Pendleton Hall, paintings that emphasize the sky, and Neil Frankenhauser, paintings.
A reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Aug. 20 in the gallery.
Contemporary Ohio Landscapes runs Monday through Sept. 17 in the Center for Fine and Performing Arts at Owens Community College. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday. Beginning Aug. 23, hours will extend to 8 p.m. on Thursdays and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. Information: 419-662-2721.
