Inspiring Art from Columbus Kids

The Homeport Gallery was privileged to host COTA's Rosa Parks Children’s Art Exhibit on it's tour of the capital city! The tour started at the Ohio Historical Society, then came to our gallery in the King Lincoln District before heading to the Statehouse. The exhibit featured art from students in Columbus who gave tribute to the courageous act of Mrs. Rosa Parks. They were asked to create an artistic response to the question, "What would you do if you had a chance to do a brave/kind/courageous thing?" Their responses were inspirational and their passion to make a difference in the world warmed our hearts. 

When we saw the impact Rosa Parks' courage made on the students, we wanted to invite everyone to consider their own response to the same question. We asked students involved in Homeport programming in our communities to create responses as well as set up art stations in the gallery for anyone who came by. The art then hung alongside the Children's Art Exhibit.

This exhibit grew into not only a celebration of children's art but a community response to courageous acts and a passion to see the world become a better place.

A very special thanks to the Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) and Lincoln Theater for bringing this special show to the Homeport Gallery!

Come see Lisa Cliff's colorful show at the Gallery!

About the artist
Suzanne Accetta has been drawing and painting for over thirty-five years. Accetta’s paintings are exhibited regionally, nationally and internationally in public, private and corporate collections as well as juried exhibitions. In May 2011, her series African Rhythms in Paint was the inaugural exhibition for the new Homeport Gallery at the Lincoln Theatre. Accetta was featured in Columbus Monthly, American Artist Magazine, Watercolorpainting.com and in the book The Complete Colored Pencil Book. Her biography is included in Who’s Who In American Art. Recently, Accetta was selected to appear in two publications; The Best Of Worldwide Watermedia and The Best Of America Portraits And Figures. Presently she works primarily in watercolor and in all her art, she tries to emphasize character, expression and feeling. Calvin J. Goodman wrote in the July, 1989 issue of American Artist Magazine, “Accetta tries to employ some narrative elements in every painting. She is a keen student of faces and human anatomy. As a result, her work shows great empathy for her subjects.” Accetta is a much sought after lecturer, demonstrator, juror, and teacher. She has illustrated children’s books for Continental Press and teaches drawing and painting at Otterbein University in the Department of Theatre and Dance.

Pop-up art takes NoBo by storm

Longtime home to the Lincoln Theatre, and most recently Homeport Gallery, the King-Lincoln District is no stranger to the Columbus arts scene. But the neighborhood has never experienced anything like what is to come this summer.

Rooms to Let Temporary Art Space has announced its summer series of pop-up projects and exhibitions, which culminate in a neighborhood crawl on May 18. The event will present over ten exhibitions and projects from local and regional artists; creations span a multitude of mediums including sound, interactive performance, a massive camera obscura, invasive sculpture, text, and art “in the dark”.

28 artists will be represented in the crawl, which will lead visitors from house to house along N 20th and 21st streets in Homeport’s North of Broad neighborhood in the King-Lincoln District. Food carts will also be present, celebrating both the artists and the neighborhood in which these pieces live.

Rooms to Let supports projects that are social, individual, site-specific, collaborative, and multi-disciplinary. Artists are asked to acknowledge both the status of the house and the property's role within its neighborhood; the primary goal is in bringing a neighborly familiarity to contemporary art practice. Through incredibly diverse and experimental projects, Rooms to Let supports a rare mix of artists and visitors who leave considering the function of art and place, and, of course, the opportunities of unoccupied homes.

Welcoming spring at Homeport Gallery

Due to the popularity of Emergence, Homeport Gallery's latest exhibit, the show is being extended to run through March 17! Not only will visitors have more time to experience Laura Alexander's art, but she will also be bringing new pieces to replace ones that have sold. If you haven't heard, Laura has been voted Best Local Artist by ColumbusUnderground.com readers for two years running. Homeport Gallery is fortunate to have such an ambassador for the arts sharing her work with the community.

In other news, our North of Broad neighborhood will soon be "home" to another up-and-coming local artist. Under the guidance of Founder Melissa Vogley Woods, Rooms to Let Temporary Art Space will soon be taking over vacant homes along 20th and 21st Streets. Plans are still in the works, but stay tuned for updates, and find out more information at Rooms to Let's website.

Finally, Homeport Gallery is proud to announce that the next exhibition will feature the work of multi-disciplinary artist Lisa McLymont. Her work will go on display March 21st, and you can find out more about her at lisamclymont.com.
