OWU Fine Arts Faculty, Alumni to Participate in Jewelry, Metals Show

November 11, 2004

DELAWARE, OHIO -- Three current or former Ohio Wesleyan University fines arts professors and two OWU alumni have been invited to exhibit their work in a very special visual celebration of nationally recognized metalsmiths and jewelers.

Supported by the Ohio Arts Council, this traveling exhibition, on display at the Riffe Gallery in Columbus from Nov. 18 - Jan. 23, is entitled "Educators/Educated: Jewelry and Metals in Ohio." The exhibition will focus on the rich legacy of Ohio's major metals programs.

The five OWU-related artists who will be part of this show are: Fine Arts professors Cindy Cetlin and Jonathan Quick, former professor, Betty Heald, and alumni Julie Flanigan Hill and Vicki Daiello. Several other artists involved with the exhibition have shown their work at OWU in recent years.

"I was asked by the exhibition's curator, Gail Brown, to provide a list of faculty, former faculty and alumni who could be potential participants in this juried show," said Cetlin. "Of all the institutions associated with this exhibition, we represent the only small liberal arts college," she said. Other schools participating in the show are the University of Akron, Bowling Green University, Cleveland Institute of Art, Kent State University, and Miami University of Ohio.

Following the Riffe Gallery exhibition, "Educators/Educated" travels to Butler Institute of American Art-Salem Campus and then to the Cleveland Institute of Art.
