The Capital University hosts the exhibition Associated American Artists: Art by Subscription Sept. 11 through Dec. 2 at the Schumacher Gallery. In 1934, the morale of the American people was at an all-time low. During this difficult period, Reeves Lewenthal hatched a plan to form the Associated American Artists. The mission of the enterprise was to make art accessible, affordable, and attractive to Americans. During its more than four-decade span, Associated American Artists created an art series with hundreds of prints by dozens of its prominent artist members. These original impressions were available for sale for $5 each. Budding collectors sprung up across America and some of these collectors lived in and near Springfield, Ohio, resulting in this collection of limited series prints on loan from the Springfield Museum of Art. Reception: 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14. (Please note: The gallery is closed Oct. 13-15 and Nov. 22-26.)

Check out the 24th Street Wailers at 9 p.m. Sept. 20, at Natalie’s Coal-Fired Pizza and Live Music in Worthington. Reserved tickets are $15 and general admission tickets are $12. Get tickets here. Experienced, road-tested and tougher than a two by four, The 24th Street Wailers are five musicians whose sound comes from the freewheeling period in the ‘40s and ‘50s when the Blues gave birth to Rock and Roll in black communities in major American cities. Their first album Unshakeable reached Top 10 on the Roots Music Report, and Dan Aykroyd’s House of Blues radio show called it “raw and authentically funky.” The Wailers have put the icing on the cake with a 2nd studio album, Wicked, and the adjective perfectly describes the music. They’ve been the only non-Quebec band to win both the Reléve en Blues and the Air Transat/Blues sur Seine competitions at Festiblues International de Montreal, which sent them to France to perform at The Blues sur Seine Festival. The Wailers were nominated for major Maple Blues Awards two years in a row, and for Blues Group/Duo of the Year at the Sirius XM Indie Awards. Band Members are Michael Archer (Upright Bass), Lindsay Beaver (Vocals, […]

The Columbus Museum of Art presents Red Horizon: Contemporary Art and Photography in the USSR and Russia, 1960-2010. The exhibit remains open from June 15 through Sept. 24. This exhibition is drawn from two facets of Neil K. Rector’s collection: Soviet and Russian photography from the 1970s to the early 1990s, and the work of Moscow based unofficial artists who came to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s. Combining more than 300 works from the two aspects, Red Horizon offers fresh perspectives on the art and life of this period, and suggests how creativity and critical thinking manifest themselves under the most difficult social and ideological circumstances. For more information visit the Columbus Museum of Art website here. Exhibit entry does not cost extra, and is included in the price of museum admission. Admission is free on Sundays thanks to continued support from PNC Arts Alive.
