Work of local artists brims with light and color arts center

Startling greens, warm golds, joyful pinks. Lively colors suffuse the welcoming and restful spaces of the Anderson Center for the Arts, as local artists bring their best to their annual exhibition. The Art Association of Madison County delivers an expressive show that roams from flowers to people and animals to landscapes interpreted through a variety of media.

The exhibit is a juried show, open to artists within a 50-mile radius of Madison County. This year’s exhibit was judged by Ohio wildlife illustrator, graphic designer, award-winning painter and teacher Jim Glover. He is currently artist-in-residence at the High Road Gallery in Worthington, Ohio.

“I found the art submitted to be of high quality and subject matter quite varied,” noted Glover.

Glover singled out awards in painting, drawing, photography, mixed media and watercolor. Glover called out Fran Auker’s “Lilly’s Pillows” as Best of Show. This was one of three pastel drawings by Auker in the current exhibit. Another of them, “Core Values,” also snagged a first place ribbon in the drawing category. Auker’s works employ vibrant color and energy with interesting textural suggestion.

Beverly Mills’s peaches and apples also placed among the drawings, tapping into appealing colors with attention to detail. “Late Afternoon Peaches” employed an especially pleasing perspective on a simple subject.

Among the delightful collection of watercolors, Sandy Day’s “Friends” claimed first. The work depicts two women seemingly dancing in the water at the beach.

“What an inviting painting! I wanted to don my trunks and dive in!” Glover commented on Day’s work, noting that her use of color makes “the water feel wet.”

Michael Daily’s black and white work, “Falls Near Ste. Anne Quebec,” took first place among the photography entries. Glover noted the work’s dynamic composition. From Daily’s precipitous landscape to the ultra-close look at a raindrop by Ron Hall to a study in a light and shadow by Jeanne Jones in “Grandma’s Kitchen,” the photographers display a breadth of vision and engaging composition.
