About the Artist

Virginia Birchfield is a graduate of the Columbus College of Art & Design where she studied Interior Design. Virginia combines her knowledge of wood, with the metalworking and painting skills that she accrued while working for her fathers auto restoration business and applies them to her work today. She incorporates contrasting materials with live-edge wood, such as metal, glass and concrete which are integrated into sculptural pieces that can be functional or simply aesthetic. Her workshop is located in rural Knox County, Ohio where her wood is salvaged from locally sourced trimmings that are cut from decomposed or naturally fallen trees.

My work is about the harmony that happens when you juxtapose raw organic shapes with sleek geometric forms. It’s about balancing the materials and the beauty in the simplicity.

First Commonwealth Bank

First Commonwealth Bank is one of OAL's new exhibition partners.  The space is located in the Short North Arts District on the same corner as Hammond Harkins Gallery, Brandt Roberts Gallery, and (Not) Sheep Gallery. The address is 647 N High St., Columbus, OH 43215.


Currently on display at the venue are paintings by OAL member Lynda McClanahan. Lynda's work shares qualities with movie still, Byrzantin icons and Persian miniatures. She avoids textured brushwork and perspective, preferring visual stillness instead. The medium is sign painters enamel, a paint once used to produce hand lettered signs and now mostly used in car detailing. She has recently begun moving away from a single-image iconographic style toward multi-paneled layouts inspired by the narrative frescoes in Ethiopian churches and Hindu temples. The image below is her painting Lindsay with Dogs.
