This exhibit opens Nov. 30, 2018 at the Cincinnati Arts Association:
Artists are often at the leading edge of innovation and experimentation with new materials that spur creative development. Synthetica is a group exhibition of artists working with chemically engineered materials in unconventional ways.
Working on two-dimensional surfaces with materials as diverse as polyurethane rubber, Plexiglas, synthetic felt, acrylic resin, polystyrene, polypropylene, and cast concrete, the artists in Synthetica explore new applications for these commercial products in constructing their unique visual language. Participating artists include Tyler Bohm (Columbus, OH); Susan Byrnes, Matt Coors, Jeffrey Cortland Jones, Marc Leone, Tim McMichael, Paige Williams (all Cincinnati, OH); and Bruce Riley (Chicago, IL).
