Inaugural Exhibit

he Inaugural Ball Exhibit on Tuesday night drew hundreds of happy citizens to the Sandusky building to celebrate Barack Obama's inauguration. Festivities began early that evening and lasted into the night with happy revelers migrating between various parties around town. Many of the guests wore ball gowns, tuxedos, or other interesting party outfits assembled for this special occasion.

The upstairs of the Sandusky building was transformed into an exciting art venue, with rooms filled with Jimmy Descant's assemblages, Susan Mayfield's paintings, a video room put together by Matthew Clark who ran an endless loop of President Obama's Inauguration, and wonderful food artfully displayed and generously donated by Michelle Gapp. The positive energy flowed throughout the evening, and the combination of art, food, music, and the promise of a new era created an electric atmosphere of goodwill and fun for all..

Inauguration Exhibit with Rocketman

I am truly excited to be a part of Jimmy Descant's exhibit that will be held during President Obama's Inauguration. Jimmy is an artist nationally known for his sculptural "rockets", among other art objects he meticulously crafts. He has a passionate political voice that is powerfully expressed through his most recent work, sculptural installations that combine iconic, sometimes startling imagery with Jimmy's elegant craftmanship. I will have several paintings hanging alongside as counterpoints to these provocative pieces. Details below:
