DUBLIN, Ohio– (Sept. 12, 2018) The Iron Path is a 10-year retrospective of the wood, metal and stone artwork of object designer and maker Jonathan Quick. The exhibition will be on view at Dublin Arts Council, 7125 Riverside Dr., in Dublin, Ohio Sept. 25 through Nov. 2.
Quick’s interest in foundry began during his graduate years at State University of New York (SUNY) at New Paltz. He is a Professor of Sculpture at Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware, Ohio, where he has taught since 1988. His artwork has been exhibited regionally and nationally.
There are three distinct directions in Quick’s studio practice; iron foundry, in which art pieces are produced by the casting process; metal fabrication, in which cutting and welding are used to build sculpture; and woodworking.
The exhibition opens with a public reception for the artist, catered by Dublin Arts Council’s Dublin-based Visual Arts Series catering partner, The Food Smiths, on Tuesday, Sept. 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. The opening reception and the exhibition are free of charge.
