DUBLIN, Ohio (Dec. 14, 2012) Char Norman: Forest Remnants is a body of sculptures stemming from artist Char Norman’s deep-seated admiration and connection to natural settings and objects. The sculptures were created as homage to the destruction of once-familiar trees and will be on view at Dublin Arts Council, 7125 Riverside Dr., in Dublin, from Jan. 8 through Feb. 22, 2013. The exhibition opens with a reception with the artist on Tuesday, Jan. 8 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Norman hopes to engage the viewer and foster respect and appreciation for the environment as she uses natural relics as icons, votives or objects of reverence. Her sculptures are often returned to the location from which the natural object was taken. In this way, the artist feels a sense of giving back and letting the elements take their natural course in the cycle of life.

Norman is an accomplished local fiber artist specializing in papermaking and fiber sculpture. She received a Master of Fine Art from Claremont Graduate University and a Bachelor of Art from Scripps College, both in Claremont, Calif. She has lectured and exhibited extensively, both nationally and internationally, and holds the position of Dean of Faculty at Columbus College of Art & Design.

The exhibition and opening reception are free of charge. Exhibition hours: 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Friday; and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday.

Robert Mullins: Kinetic Sculpture is an exhibition of aluminum and stainless steel kinetic sculptures, featuring some of the actual maquettes used in realizing several large-scale artworks that have been commissioned and installed in the Greater Columbus area since 1992.

Mullins’ intent is to create graceful form upon an elegant mechanical design. The studies of form and design combine to produce the interesting dynamics of kinetic art.

Robert Mullins, a Columbus area resident, business owner and artist, received a Bachelor of Fine Art from Kent State University in 1977. He started a metal fabricating shop in 1988, specializing in custom metal sign products. As more divergent types of work evolved, the business became known as "The Wind Kinetics Institute, Inc." and continues today in an exploration of kinetic outdoor sculpture that combines aesthetic design with mechanical fundamentals.

Robert Mullins: Kinetic Sculpture will be on view in the Dublin Arts Council gallery, 7125 Riverside Dr., in Dublin from March 5 through April 19, 2013. The exhibition opens with a reception with the artist at Dublin Arts Council on March 5 from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition and opening reception are free of charge. Exhibition hours: Tuesday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
