“The Soul of Objects: Ohio Wesleyan metalsmiths” will be on exhibit at the gallery, 7125 Riverside Drive, Dublin, from Nov. 13 through Dec. 21. The event will open with a free reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Nov. 13. Exhibition hours will be 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays; and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.

The show already is generating some buzz, and Cetlin told ThisWeek Community News that she is excited about the exhibit.

“I’ve had, over the last two or three years, some wonderful metal students and some wonderful pieces have come out of my metal classes,” Cetlin says in the article. “I chose what pieces I felt were most successful in terms of design and in terms of craftsmanship, originality, and creativity.”

Students and alumni participating in the exhibit are Hazel Barrera ’14, Marta del Cid ’15, Michael Gatz ’12, Emma Kropp ’12, Ha Le ’14, Katasha Ross ’13, Zachary Ross ’13, Phyllis Walla-Catania ’12, Andrew Wilson ’13, and Caitlin Zeller ’12.

In describing the show, the Dublin Arts Council calls it a “fascinating group exhibition” with “student-created objects [that] are stunning and unique to each artist in style and subject matter.”

Cetlin said the exhibit will include both metal and non-metal pieces. Her own work, for example, will include “Collar,” made of wool and silk.
