I just want to say thank you all so incredibly much to everyone who contributed art, helped out, and attended the 83 Gallery South grand opening show this past Friday - it was more successful than I could have hoped for. Seeing everyone having a great time with artwork hanging on the walls AND being sold makes all the time and effort more than worth it. I can’t thank you all enough, and I can’t wait to see you at our future shows.
It’s official! Open for business this Friday, April 5th, starting at 7 PM. If you can’t make it out this week, the show will be on display through Sunday, April 28th.

83 Gallery South Grand Opening
Located in the heart of the Brewery District of downtown Columbus, the premiere satellite location of 83 Gallery will feature the selected work of local students, post-graduates, and emerging artists. Patrons of 83 Gallery South will be welcomed by the familiar red brick walls of our old space displaying artwork with the same salon-style grandeur, adapted to a more cozy and intimate setting. This smaller venue lends itself to specially curated conceptual shows that still maintain the diverse range of artistic styles found in the growing Columbus art scene. The new location aims to carry on 83’s handcrafted DIY spirit with an inviting, inclusive atmosphere that welcomes young up-and-coming artists to share their work with the community, and allows patrons to intimately observe this burgeoning talent rise.
83 Gallery South’s first show, aptly titled Origins, celebrates the opening of our new space and the beginning of a new venture. In keeping with 83′s tradition of exhibiting the best varied work of underground local artists, the selected work displays a fresh, diverse array of styles, mediums, and content. We’ve partnered with Columbus College of Art & Design’s academic student community to present the public with the most current, unique, and contemporary styles emerging in the city. The latest works of 83 Gallery resident artists will also be displayed to create a union of the new with the familiar in one cohesive show that praises the work of our local artistic community.

Historiae Animalium by Conrad Gesner (1551-1587)
"Conrad Gesner’s Historiae Animalium (Studies on Animals) is considered to be the first modern zoological work. Building a bridge between ancient, medieval, and modern science, he chronicles data from old sources, such as The Old Testament, Aristotle and medieval bestiaries, and adds his own observations, creating a new, comprehensive description of the Animal Kingdom. In what is the first attempt by anyone to describe many of the animals accurately, the book is illustrated with hand-colored woodcuts drawn from personal observations by Gesner and his colleagues.”
