Red Alert
18x14 Oil on Board

Publication:The Columbus Dispatch — Bill Mayr
Date:Mar 19, 2009;

Time to lighten up. Goaded by wintry weather and the frigid economy, the Worthington Area Art League puts a positive spin on life with “Sunny Side Up” at High Road Gallery. Justin Kronewetter, an Ohio Wesleyan University professor, judged the 160-plus pieces and awarded best of show to Dennis Zimmerman’s The Painter, a well-crafted watercolor. Other awards are listed at www.artinview.com. Some imaginary awards might reflect the upbeat theme of the exhibit: • “Less Is More”: Inner Glow, a single pink rose deftly illuminated and photographed by Joseph Wagenhals; and Summer No. 2, a watercolor of a quiet wooded scene painted in a seemingly effortless manner by John Behling. • “Wishful Thinking”: Red Alert, a portrait of half a bright-red watermelon by Susan Clem. • “It’ll Get Warmer”: Nest by Ana Marie Atwood and Reflective by Aida Garrity, a pair of nudes painted in differing but attractive styles. • “Love Those Landscapes”: Golden River by Gloria Woods and Evening Serenade by Richard Clem, two minimalist scenes that maximize the essences of light and color. • “Just for Fun”: Have Sight of Proteus Rising From the Sea, a richly textured painting of a turtle.
