Tiffin U introduces new art show

Tiffin University’s Diane Kidd Gallery of Art is to open a new exhibition, “Paintings, Drawings and Collages,” by artist Glen Cebulash Thursday. The public is invited to a free reception 5:30-7 p.m. that day.

The exhibition is to run through Nov. 21.

Cebulash, chairman of the art and art history department at Wright State University in Dayton, earned a master’s of fine arts degree from American University and has exhibited his work in galleries around the Midwest since 1991. He also has lectured in six states, taught at three other U.S. universities and conducted workshops in the U.S. and Italy.

“Although my training was academic and traditional, and my work for many years was concerned with issues of observation and perception,” Cebulash said, “I have gravitated over the last decade toward a more formal and abstract language of painting. I am interested in a painting that can be nothing but a painting – that cannot be imagined as anything other than a painting; that refers only to itself, or other painting, and whose space is consistent with these fundamental characteristics.”

Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday through Thursday and by appointment. Group tours also are available.
