Andrew Reach & 14 other Ohio Artists at the Riffe Gallery in Art Exhibition “Let’s Get Digital”: Curated by Alexandra Nicholis Coon, Massillon Museum

 

I’m proud to share pictures from the opening of the exhibition “Let’s Get Digital” at the Ohio Arts Council Riffe Gallery in Columbus Ohio. My lifetime partner Andrew Reach was included with this wonderful group of artists in the show. Andrew has been dealing with many setbacks dealing with his health. I am particularly proud of his accomplishments. This is the first exhibition of his art printed on Canvas at a very large format. Each piece is taking longer to accomplished due to the pain he lives with and the inability for him to be up for extended periods of time. I would like to thank Alex Nicholis Coon, Director of the Massillon Museum for her advocacy of Andrew’ work and including him in this exhibition. Even though we haven’t met her for Andrew’s health precluded us from traveling to the exhibition, I’d also like to thank the Riffe Gallery director Mary Gray.
Below are pictures of the show and also the press that has so far covered the exhibition. What I posted are the pictures Alexandra sent us that were taken by her friend and only some of the artists represented were in them. When I get more pictures of the other artists, I will update the post.
