Work created by nine Ohio artists in residencies will be on display at the Ohio Arts Council's Riffe Gallery January 29 through April 1, 1998. A Change of Place: Ohio Arts Council Artist Residencies is the first exhibition of work by artists in residency programs sponsored by the Ohio Arts Council at Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, Califonia, and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Curated by Holly Blake, residency manager at the Headlands Center for the Arts, A Change of Place showcases work created by Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship recipients during or as a result of their residencies. Each artist in A Change of Place takes a different approach to visual art but all share an openness toward change and a willingness to allow their work to be influenced by their environments.
Featured artists include Gretchen Stevens Cochran (Columbus), Malcolm Cochran (Columbus), James Duesing (Cincinnati), Gilda Edwards (Columbus), Sean Foley (Columbus), Elise Mitchell Sanford (Athens), Karen Snouffer (Shaker Heights), Kay Willens (Columbus), and Walter Zurko (Wooster).
