UC Blue Ash Art Gallery Presents Gaps and Overlaps: Collaborative Works by UC Blue Ash Faculty


March 10, 2015 – The UC Blue Ash College Art Gallery will feature a new exhibit that brings together the talents and creativity of faculty from across several different disciplines.

Gaps and Overlaps: Collaborative Works by UC Blue Ash Faculty is a collection of creative works produced by faculty from Art, English, Foreign Language, Mathematics, and Music.  The exhibit will run from March 27 – May 1, 2015 at the UC Blue Ash Art Gallery (located at Plainfield and Cooper roads in Blue Ash, OH 45236).

 The public is invited to the opening reception on April 3 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.  Regular Gallery hours during the exhibition are Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Working in small groups, faculty members brought to their project various gaps in knowledge about disciplines not their own, as well as the shared purpose of creating something new. The process of creation varied: some projects required careful planning while others emphasized spontaneous compositions; some generated new texts and images while others applied previously created ones; and some projects applied cutting-edge technology while others used scissors and glue. The result is an array of works using a broad range of forms or combinations of forms: sculpture, installation, written and musical compositions, audio, video, performance, photography, and other works on paper. These works invite the viewer, as their construction invited the artists, to experience the synergy of artistic collaboration across creative disciplines.

This exhibition is the product of the UC Blue Ash Creative Arts Faculty Learning Community (CAFLC), a group devoted to collaborative arts generation and its potential relationship to teaching. CAFLC members include Jamie Albert, Jody Ballah, Matt Bennett, Ted Ferdinand, David Freeman, David Hartz, Rita Kumar, Robert Murdock, Kevin Oberlin, Rhonda Pettit, Mike Roos, H. Michael Sanders, Claudia Skutar, and Sue Sipple. Each member has an established record of scholarly and/or creative publications, presentations, performances, productions, or exhibits in their respective areas.

A full-color catalogue of the exhibition is being published in conjunction with the exhibition and will be available through the UC Blue Ash Art Gallery and the department office of Electronic Media Communications (Muntz 217). The UC Office of the Provost and the UC Blue Ash Faculty Development Funds Committee provided support for this publication. Additional information about the exhibition and the published catalogue is available on the UC Blue Ash Art Gallery website at
