True to Form Gallery Show

True To Form Art Exhibit

A nice crowd minutes after the doors opened!

Just a few of the beautiful forms to tempt you!

On Saturday Oct 3, Mike and I spent a very pleasant evening at a wonderful gallery opening. The show "True to Form" is currently on display until Jan 23 at the Columbus Center for the Paper & Book Arts Gallery. It is a fantastic collection of local mixed media artists who used 3D paper mache' torsos as their canvas- each with a very different feel. With 25 artists participating, there is something for everyone's taste. (There is even an electric blinking piece!) The very best part of this show is that it is dual purposed. Besides showcasing the mixed media genre to the community, it also is a silent auction (bidding open till Dec 5) which supports Breast Cancer Research. Proceeds will go to The Columbus Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

I invite you to go visit this wonderful show, and spread the word. I think it would be a fabulous place to buy a piece of art in honor of a Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Daughter, Aunt, Cousin, see where I'm going with this... (October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.)

The Gallery is housed in the Carriage House (rear) of 539 East Town Street, Columbus Ohio. An Added bonus is that the fabulous artist's studio shop European Papers is on the second floor of this gallery. It may be small in size, but it's mighty in all the beautiful and interesting things to look at and buy. Bring your art thirsty soul, and be prepared to find more than your vehicle can hold! Open Wed-Sat from 11-4. Call 614-316-3948 for questions, or visit
