Rose Klockner: Inclement Seasons, October 2019
Central Ohio fine art photographer Rose Klockner exhibits her “Inclement Seasons” series at Highline Coffee Art Space in Worthington in October 2019. An artist reception is scheduled for Saturday, October 12, 3-5pm.
Currently a software developer, Klockner became immersed in photography only a few years ago after enrolling in a workshop that “changed my direction and, quite frankly, my life,” she reveals. By 2016, photography became her main creative pursuit and a side career.
Funded in part by a grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council, Klockner’s “Inclement Seasons” exhibit expresses her success in “bringing out an emotional response that’s more appropriate to the conditions,” she says. “Storms light up the sky with both ominous and colorful clouds. Late spring snow scenes transmit the sense of despair that winter will never end. Fog and overcast skies often let in just a little light, shrouding everything in mystery, which hopefully keeps the viewers’ attention as they seek out those hidden details.”
“My passion for nature photography, both landscape and close-up, along with interests in urban exploration and rural living, often leads to long weekends on the gravel backroads of Ohio, and more recently, to destinations outside the state,” Klockner explains. “I want my images to connect to the viewer, reminding them of their childhood vacation at a lake, an unexpected view of a favorite park, or a road whose twists and turns beckons them into the far horizon as it did me. I hope viewers will find their own story in my images as well as sharing in mine. The exclamation of ‘That’s Ohio?’ never gets old and I love being able to share places of unexpected beauty that I’ve explored.”
“Rose’s beautiful photographs immediately draw you in,” says Christie Bruffy, owner and manager of Highline Coffee Co. “We’re thrilled to have her exquisite work on exhibit in the Art Space.”
Alexis Rampa-Henry: Illustrations, September 3-October 31, 2019
Central Ohio artist Alexis Rampa-Henry displays a collection of her illustrations in Highline Coffee Art Space’s Window Annex, September-October 2019.
Alexis is a central Ohio fashion-based illustrator and surface designer, having graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design in 2016 with a BFA in Illustration and a Minor in Creative Writing. Inspired by long forgotten fashion illustrations from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, her work is unexpectedly mixed with a softness and relatability often found in children’s illustration, incorporating little moments and objects from everyday life.
Alexis currently works at a local T-shirt design company, working with the kid’s team to create designs for large e-commerce companies. In her free time, she enjoys working on her own fashion illustrations and stories.
