Art Access Gallery exhibition Nicholas Hall and Jean Kirsten. Candy Bennett's INFORM for July 23, 2010.

On a special episode of INFORM we meet the curators of Art Access Gallery, Gail and Barb. Their current exhibition is titled International Impressions featuring American artist, Nicholas Hall and German artist, Jean Kirsten.

Nicholas Hall is a Professor of Art at Otterbein College where he teaches printmaking. The pieces that are prominently displayed in the gallery represent his work in the medium of printmaking featuring the architectural elements of Dresden, Germany.

Jean Kirsten was born in Dresden, Germany; he met Nicholas in 2009 where they participated in an exhibit, Visual Dialogues, at the Vern Riffe Gallery, where Nicholas Hall was curator.

Mr. Hall’s pieces showcase the industrial austerity of Dresden, with added textural elements of wax. He employed a process known as encaustic. Encaustic painting involved the application of hot wax and prepared hot wood which was developed by the Greeks.

In the work of each artist, you can see and feel the emotions of energy flowing from the canvases.

Art Access Gallery is located at 540 South Drexel Avenue.
