Wild Goose Creative presents HomeMade
Curated by Nicole Crock

HomeMade is an exhibition that explores artists’ definitions of home, how they examine their relationship to a home space through their artwork, and how the concept of home affects their process and product. Whether those explorations are related to home as a physical place, a psychological search, or a documentation of domestic or familial life, all artwork involving the home is welcome.
HomeMade is curated by Nicole Crock. Nicole is a Columbus-based artist who has shown her artwork throughout the Midwest and East Coast. She works in mixed media sculpture and installation art. As an artist, Nicole is influenced by her own nomadic history and with the curation of this show will investigate how other artists explore their connections to home. To learn more about Nicole, visit her website http://nicolecrock.com.

Open Call to Artists: You Call That Art? at the Cultural Arts Center
In October, the Columbus Cultural Arts Center (our own armory building) will host a large exhibition of contemporary works by 
Ohio artists.  “YOU CALL THAT ART?” will pay homage to the seminal 1913 show but, more significantly, provide an in-depth look 
at the state of in 21st Century Ohio.  The call for art for this exhibition is in two parts: 1) a number of nationally-renowned Ohio
artists have been asked to present works reflecting the significance of the 1913 show.  These works will be the anchor(s) for the 
larger number of works anticipated from this open-call to central Ohio artists.  2) Artists submitting works for consideration by the
jurors are asked to consider the importance of the 1913 Armory Show as they create works of contemporary significance,
meaning, and materials.  A brief (<100 words) statement about how a piece might have been inspired by some aspect of the 
1913 show can be included as part of an artist's submittal.  A detailed web-based history of the 1913 Armory Show is maintained
by the University of Virginia at:http://xroads.virginia.edu/~museum/armory/entrance.html
