German Village Art League introduces The GVAL Brick!


As you may know, public funding is difficult to attain with cuts to the arts and art organizations. The German Village Art League, a mere two years old has created a new fundraising campaign, The GVAL Brick!

Donations from friends like you allow us to begin building a foundation towards a legacy of growth and stability. Your donation will support high quality exhibitions, fine programming, GVAL artists and arts advocacy in German Village and beyond.

The GVAL Brick

German Village, a historic and cherished neighborhood, with its brick streets, brick houses and sidewalks, lends itself perfectly to the art league’ s first fundraising effort – The GVAL Brick, a nostalgic reference of our neighborhood.

Are they real bricks? Commemorative faux bricks are handmade from foam and painted realistic to resemble an iconic historic brick. Weighing less than an ounce, each GVAL Brick is unique. Either the GVAL logo or German Village Art League’s name silkscreened on each in various colors and styles. The GVAL Brick can be displayed in almost any setting in your home, office, or business.

For a small donation, you will receive a GVAL Brick, one of the building blocks in GVAL’s strong foundation and future legacy.

Orewiler has his 1st solo exhibition of the year at the Columbus International Airport Portfolio

Orewiler is currently exhibiting his 1st solo exhibition of the year till the end of Feb.2011 at the Columbus International Airport, Columbus, Ohio.  (Above image: Runway #1 43″x31″ oil on canvas)

Paintings by Ryan Orewiler On Display at New Port Columbus Art Exhibit. Paintings by Columbus artist Ryan Orewiler are now on display in the Port Columbus Gateway to The Arts, an exhibit space located on the ticketing level in the hallway behind MoJoe Lounge.

Port Columbus Gateway to The Arts is a collaboration between the Columbus Regional Airport Authority and the Ohio Art League, which is a non-profit visual arts organization that coordinates the rotating exhibits on a quarterly basis.

Among the artwork on display are two painted aerials of Port Columbus International Airport.

“I’ve always enjoyed the non-traditional, aerial perspective of the runways and terminals from the airports I have visited throughout the world,” said Orewiler. “I also enjoy the feeling from the initial lift off of leaving a city and touching down to visit or revisit a destination. Two of my grandfathers were in the U.S. Air Force and inspired me to learn more about flight in general. I plan to one day get my pilot’s license.”

Orewiler selected to jury AICUO for the 2nd time

A Bit of Advice from Ryan Orewiler

I asked 2011 AICUO second round judge Ryan Orewiler to send me some information about him and his judging process, and here’s what he sent me. Whether you’re participating in the competition or just looking for some good art advice, you should read what this phenomenal Ohio artist has to say:

Greek Church by Ryan Orewiler

“It is my privilege to be a juror for the AICUO Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts and supporting the development of young emerging artists and the development of the arts in Ohio.

I mainly analyze entries and portfolios (specifically for the AICUO award) based on the use of medium and personal expression. Below are various other elements I look for when selecting artists for this award (in no particular order).

• Present innovative concepts and risk taking

• Show knowledge in using design elements and fundamentals

• The artist’s statement should introduce artist’s intentions with their work, medium, process and direction

• Name of work and or series (simple or unique titles can effect the image of the series or
submitted work)

• Overall presentation of work should be consistent

I look forward to viewing your work and encourage you as an emerging artist to pursue your vision.”

If you’re interested in seeing some of Ryan’s work, check out his official Web site at Thanks for the input, Ryan! I’m sure many nominees will benefit from this chunk of advice.
