Presents "Efflorescent"

Continuing its exciting season of Member Curated Exhibitions, the Ohio Art League (OAL) is pleased to present Efflorescent, a multi-media exhibition by Britny Wainwright.  The exhibition runs from June 3 through July 29.  An opening reception is planned in conjunction with “Franklinton Friday” on June 9, from 6 to 8 PM in the OAL X Space, 400 W. Rich Street, Columbus.  The X Space gallery is open Saturdays, Noon – 4 PM.

Efflorescent combines ceramics, fabric, and paper, among other materials, to create an arranged space recalling both garden and home. Raised floral patterns cover the surface of the ceramic pieces. Vegetal ornaments interact with painterly gesture and mark, the patterns serving to create a sense of belonging, and to advocate for decoration’s place in the gallery. The exhibition offers viewers a feeling of carefree summertime joy.

Ms. Wainwright is a 2017 MFA recipient in ceramics from the Ohio State University. She works in ceramic and mixed materials to create sculpture that blends traditions of painting and decoration. Deeply interested in histories of floral patterning, she acknowledges issues around gender in art and advocates for a revision of such hierarchy. Prior to coming to Columbus, Britny received a BFA from Alfred University in 2012. She was born and raised in upstate New York.
