From April 30th through mid June there are a number of exhibitions taking place. I am lucky to be able to participate in 7 shows either on my own, with my partner Nicolette Swift, or in a supporting role for Nicolette. The shows all include new work some which has never been seen and some that have had a few screenings already. Also, one show “The Ohio Peace Short Film Festival” will highlight the curation part of what Nicolette and I do for the Ohio and specifically Columbus community. Most of these events are either free or have a very low admission fee. I am so excited to have all these opportunities to exhibit new work. As a side note, the majority of these works and shows are in part due to fiscal support either through a grant or fellowship from the Greater Columbus Arts Council. #artmakescbus #cbusmakesfilm
