    Are you a fiber artist? Do you crochet or cross-stitch? Here is a TEDtalk that will be sure to light your fire for fiber! 

    For anyone who's been on the fence about the value of cross-stitchery in the modern world, then take a look at this amusingly insightful talk that the infamous Jamie 'Mr X Stitch' Chalmers recently gave at a TEDxBedford event back in November 2014 called "Why X Stitch is important".

    Congratulations to OAL member Christine Guillot Ryan on her work featured in ‘Collage 2015′ at the Concourse Gallery in Upper Arlington.

    Collage 2015 features the artwork of six contemporary artists, Louise Captein, N. Penney Denning, Egle’ Gatins, Martin Hugo, Margee Bright-Ragland, and OAL member artist Christine Guillot Ryan, who explore a wide range of approaches to the media of collage and mixed media collage.

    Collage came out of the studio and into the exhibition halls early in the 20th century when Cubism fractured the traditional images of painting and sculpture. Often called the poor artist’s medium, it enabled the artist to be spontaneous and flexible, to move elements around quickly before committing to a final composition.

    About the Concourse Gallery: The Concourse Gallery is a public reception area of the Municipal Services Center and home to our Visual Arts Series. The City of Upper Arlington has dedicated this space to the arts for over 30 years. Their mission is to provide challenging, thought provoking, and dynamic exhibitions that foster discussion and education to all viewers. To learn more, please visit

    Public Art Chattanooga

    January 30  

    Public Art Chattanooga is seeking qualifications from artists or artist teams for the commission and installation of a mural at 2001 Chestnut Street at West 20th Street in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  Up to three finalists will be selected to develop concept proposals for this project.  Each finalist will be paid a $500 stipend.  The project budget for the selected commission is $25,000.  The Chestnut Street Gateway Mural will provide a transformative and dynamic visual anchor to this important gateway.

    The site is located on the southwest perimeter of Chattanooga's revitalized Southside neighborhood, and is adjacent to Finley Stadium and First Tennessee Pavilion, home to a variety of heavily attended public events including sports, a major fine art festival, and the Chattanooga Market, a weekly community farmer's and craft market.  Once a blighted and severely neglected industrial district, the Southside has experienced a rebirth through reinvestment and is being transformed into a thriving and urban neighborhood.  Only blocks away, a 3.5-mile extension of the award-winning Tennessee Riverpark is under construction that will connect Chattanooga;s downtown to South Chattanooga and significantly increase pedestrian and bike traffic.  Here, old and new neighbors embrace diversity, urban living, and the return of locally-owned businesses.

    VSA Ohio 

    January 27 

    On January 27 from 3-4pm VSA Ohio will offer a webinar titled "Tools and Techniques for Artists with and without Disabilities: How to Handle the Resistance in the Creative Process".  Many creatives experience creative blocks due to the resistance that is part of the creative process.  Too often, resistance stops the artist from making movement in their art work or out in their careers.  This includes artists with disabilities and without disabilities--no artist is immune to this challenge.  However, resistance can be a conduit for change when the artist uses techniques and strategies alongside their art making process.  When someone attains a disability or goes through some changes in their lives or artisitically this resistance can be stonger than normal.  This where developing a tookbox to handle the many changes that effects one's creativity becomes highly valuable to the artist.  This presentation addresses the many ways in which to redirect one's creativity.

    Hearts United for One Billion Rising, the 2nd annual "Hearts United" Public Art Project.  Second Sight Studio will once again be facilitating a public art display that is open to anyone who would like to participate. Hearts United for One Billion Rising is a project in which individuals and collaborative groups create heart-shaped or heart-themed art to be displayed at the Bellows End schoolyard, just across the street from the studio.  Everyone is invited to convene at the schoolyard from 11am to 2pm on Saturday, February 14 to hang their artwork on the fences, enjoy the work of others, and then warm up at the studio with coffee and donuts. 

    This project is part of the global observance of One Billion Rising's "V-Day", a movement to draw attention to the need to end violence against women.  Last year, there were over 100 Columbus artist participants from elementary-school age all the way through adults.  This year, "Hearts United" is two cities strong, with a concurrent happening at House Tremont, an alternative art space in Cleveland.
