    Presence: A Dialogue with the Human Form
    September 9 –October 17

    Since the dawn of creative activity, artists have been naturally inclined to adopt the human figure as subject matter. In our contemporary times it still remains a source of inspiration and a vital tool of symbolism. Presence brings together the work of practicing artists who demonstrate that the human form has a diverse dialogue all its own. The exhibition is curated by Casey Bradley, Studio Manager and Instructor of Dimensional Studies, Columbus College of Art and Design.

    Reception: Friday, September 20, 5:00 – 7:30 p.m.

    Memories of World War II: Photographs from the Archives of The Associated Press
    October 28 – December 7 

    As the main source of news for thousands of newspapers in the United States and overseas, The Associated Press was the backbone of information-gathering during World War II. From the bombed-out streets of London and the islands of the Pacific, to the Allied landings at Normandy and Japan’s surrender aboard the USS Missouri, the AP brought to those at home the immense scope of the war. These photos from AP’s collection include pictures from archives in London, Paris, Frankfurt and Tokyo. The exhibition was developed by Smith Kramer from the rich collections of The Associated Press.

    Reception: Friday, November 1, 5:00 – 7:30 p.m.

    (Please note: The gallery is closed November 27 – December 1 for Thanksgiving.)

    The Beatles! Backstage and Behind the Scenes
    January 20 – March 22

    Revisit the beginnings of the magical mystery tour. The early years of Beatlemania are captured in this fine art photography exhibition from the archives of CBS Television and LIFE photographer Bill Eppridge. By 1964, The Beatles were already a phenomenon as musicians and songwriters. Add the visual element, made possible by television, and their debut on the Ed Sullivan Show became a cultural event shared by millions. Eighty-four never-before-published images showcase the Fab Four as they revolutionized rock music. Copyright, Bill Eppridge.

    Reception: Friday, February 7, 5:00 – 7:30 p.m.
