Deirdre Pifer: Chasing Trail, November 3 – December 3, 2020

Columbus artist Deirdre Pifer returns to Highline Coffee Art Space for her second solo show as she exhibits her mixed media work, November 3-December 3, 2020.

Moving to central Ohio more than 20 years ago, Pifer has been an artist for as long as she can remember, beginning as a poet and musician as a young girl, then later painting and drawing with her husband while living aboard their sailboat in Florida.

“I am fascinated and inspired by the colors of nature: turquoise waters, hot pink roses, the orange and blue of a brilliant sunrise,” Pifer reveals. “Each time I create, I’m paying tribute to the beauty in our world. My medium is whatever I may be drawn to, whether it’s watercolor, acrylic, marker, pastel, or maybe a combination of them all.”

Pifer’s varied work emerged from her participation in The Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee, a run or walk of 1,000 kilometers between May 1 and August 31, that had registrants from every state and nearly 80 countries around the world in 22 time zones.

“Accomplishing this goal has been amazing, difficult, and life-altering,” Pifer explains. “I wasn’t sure if I could do it, but my training partner and I persevered! All of the work for Chasing Trail has been inspired by the splendor I’ve seen on this journey of miles. We ran in beautiful parks, our neighborhoods, empty parking lots, and familiar trails that feel like home.”

“We’re thrilled to have Deirdre’s distinctive work on exhibit again in the Art Space,” says Christie Bruffy, owner and manager of Highline Coffee Co. “Her show is a wonderful expression of our continued commitment to feature the variety of work that our local artists continue to create.”
