Alexa Carson in another Emerging Artist you will be able to find at this year’s arts festival. She likes opossums, and frogs and birds. Wildlife is definitely her inspiration and she brings to the canvas amazing details of animals and birds that live right here in Columbus.
Fiber artist Karen Mulier was recently named a 2014 Greater Columbus Arts Council Emerging Artist. She weaves scarves and shawls out of the fiber shorn from the alpacas on her family-run farm in London, Ohio. You can meet her at her very first Columbus Arts Festival this June.
Jimmy Orrante, known for playing the lead in BalletMet’s Dracula, retired from the stage this spring. Carrie West, who played the original Lucy opposite Orrante’s Dracula, also retired this season. We recently sat down with both of them to reflect on their careers and find out what comes next for these two stars of the stage.
Jimmy Orrante and Carrie West discuss their retirement from BalletMet, we take a tour of the Ohio History Center’s collection of hair art, and Fresh A.I.R. (Artists in Recovery) celebrates ten years by featuring new work from old contributors.
