Greater Columbus features work by artists in central Ohio who have been recognized for their outstanding talent. The exhibition represents a continuing partnership between the Columbus Museum of Art (CMA) and the Greater Columbus Arts Council (GCAC). Featured artists include Hannah Parrett, Benedict Scheuer, Matelli Graves, Roger Beebe, George Rush, and Joshua Penrose.
Presented biennially, Greater Columbus features work by outstanding artists based in central Ohio. The exhibition represents a partnership between the Columbus Museum of Art and the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
On behalf of the Arts Council, a jury of distinguished arts professionals working outside the region awarded Individual Artist Fellowships to Roger Beebe, Matelli Graves, Hannah Parrett, and Benedict Scheuer. Greater Columbus features their work alongside two artists, George Rush and Joshua Penrose, who were selected for residencies in Dresden, Germany as part of the Arts Council’s Artist Exchange Program. Working in various media, these artists represent a diverse range of practices fostered within the region’s artistic community.
Jurors for the 2021 Individual Artist Fellowship Awards were Mitra Abbaspour, Haskell Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Princeton Art Museum; Claire Bergeal, Director, Bortolami Gallery; and Christiana Ine-Kimba Boyle, Online Sales Director, Pace Gallery.
Through this partnership, the Museum and the Arts Council support the arts and advance cultural development in the Columbus area. The Arts Council’s Individual Artist Fellowships program was established in 1986. Since the inception of the program, hundreds of artists have received awards in a variety of disciplines, including the visual arts, crafts, film and video, creative writing, music composition, and choreography/movement arts.
