Curtis Benzle – Best exhibition

Curtis writes: My May, 2009, exhibition at the Sherrie Gallerie in Columbus, Ohio has been selected as one of the Best Exhibitions of 2009 by the Columbus Dispatch.  Other honorees included “Egyptian Treasures from the Brooklyn Museum” at the Columbus Museum of Art,” “Alice Schille” at the Capital University Schumacher Gallery, and “Luc Tuymans” at Ohio State’s Wexner Center for the Arts.  With Columbus, Ohio recently being ranked the #10 best arts destination among U.S. large cities (500,000+) this recognition is all the sweeter.

In an excerpt from his review of the exhibition, Dispatch arts critic, Kaizaad Kotwa, writes; “The porcelain works exude a fragile refinement laced with a modernist exploration of line, form and texture. . . . When light interacts with them, the varying degrees of opacity within the surfaces makes these ceramic marvels seem to glow from within.”
