and Charlotte McGraw: Welcome to Charlottesville

at the Ohio Craft Museum

August 18–October 6, 2019


(Columbus, Ohio)—Eight Ohio studios serving artists with developmental differences will be showcased in the Ohio Craft Museum’s exhibition, “Shared Vision: Passions of the Human Spirit.” On view August 18–October 6, the show will feature work created by artists from Passion Works Studio, Athens; Goodwill Art Studio, Open Door Art Studio, Sunapple Studio, Columbus; Planet Joy Studio, Medina; Soaring Arts, Napoleon; Visionaries and Voices, and Thunder-Sky Inc., Cincinnati. 

“We are so happy to host these studios, and share the passion and enthusiasm that emanate from the artists’ creations,” said Betty Talbott, Ohio Craft Museum director. “Visitors will delight in the joy that these makers bring to their art.”

“Welcome to Charlottesville,” a focus exhibition of multimedia works by Columbus artist Charlotte McGraw, will be shown alongside “Shared Vision.” A Goodwill artist, McGraw is the creator and mayor of Charlottesville, an imaginary town illustrated by a series of collages and paintings of a variety of characters.
