Month Wine Tasting at Global with Barrulocco Food Truck

  • Global Gallery

What a great way to end your week!  $10 gets you 5 glasses

Barruloco Food Truck will also be there - The name is synonymous with a sandwich created in Chile and adopted by Argentines. As every region does, the Argentines took and made the sandwich their own, layering it with flavors that spoke to their own local culture and traditions. Now, the D’Angelo family and friends, bring the tradition, experience, and flavors of the BARROLUCO to us, here in Columbus, Ohio.

THE STORY

Multinational coffee companies now rule our shopping malls and supermarkets and dominate the industry worth over $80 billion, making coffee the most valuable trading commodity in the world after oil.

But while we continue to pay for our lattes and cappuccinos, the price paid to coffee farmers remains so low that many have been forced to abandon their coffee fields.

Nowhere is this paradox more evident than in Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee. Tadesse Meskela is one man on a mission to save his 74,000 struggling coffee farmers from bankruptcy. As his farmers strive to harvest some of the highest quality coffee beans on the international market, Tadesse travels the world in an attempt to find buyers willing to pay a fair price.

Against the backdrop of Tadesse's journey to London and Seattle, the enormous power of the multinational players that dominate the world's coffee trade becomes apparent. New York commodity traders, the international coffee exchanges, and the double dealings of trade ministers at the World Trade Organisation reveal the many challenges Tadesse faces in his quest for a long term solution for his farmers.

Art Opening: Second Sight ProjectArtist Rebecca Kemper's Dis)placed Children Gallery Exhibit

  • Global Gallery


This original showing will display paintings that explore the complicated emotional toll of lack of opportunities, resources and stability caused by economic segregation in our communities. One of the most violent displacements that can occur is the inability to stay in one’s home. The emotionality around displacement will be presented through a series of square acrylic paintings, all prepped in the same way however each being affected by their position differently. Each color field composition will represent the emotional effect of such injustices upon the development of the painting, representing the development of an individual. 

Dis)placed Children hopes to humanize such social justice issues that are at the heart of the nonprofit artist residency, Second Sight Project in Franklinton, responsible for youth outreach events such as “Faces of Franklinton” and supported by the Greater Columbus Arts Council. A portion of the art sales from the showing will go to Second Sight. 

Artist Biography: 

Rebecca Kemper received her formal artistic training at the Knowlton School of Architecture, is the founder of Equitable Urban Futures and is an artist affiliated with Second Sight Project, an artist residency in the Franklinton neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio. Her work often mirrors her research interests concerning social justice and the city. 

She is the grandniece of American painter, L.B. Porter, known for pioneering the female form into pastoral Southwestern landscape compositions.

Art Opening - Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

From the Artist:

When I began my work with the Dowd Center's young artists, I was amused and enlightened by the "happenstances" and experiences that they were genuinely grateful for in their daily lives. The Dowd Center is a drop-in center for children and young teens experiencii homelessness or transitional living circumstances. Like the sparkle and effervescence we enji in the release of a child's bubbles, I witnessed their optimism and grace as they shared their stories in the art assemblages we created with bright, layered colors.

Each young artist enthusiastically made more confident brushstrokes as the process grew from week to week. Small house shapes became landscapes of their neighborhoods ...or cityscapes reflecting bright lights in the night skies. A place where they could grow up anc feel safe -- a place called Home. These young artists have experienced many examples of home life, often anxious and uncertain about their families‘ ability to stay united and living unde one roof, if possible.

The young artists exuberantly collaged canvases, which took on their own stories through metaphors of brushstrokes and bright colors...flowing upwards into a new day. I asked each artist to share what he or she was thankful for in his or her life. Several of them began a conversation to help the quieter students verbalize what they all might have in common. I supplied words from magazines, so that they could choose freely to add context and include details from their life stories.

As they recounted their life experiences to me and one another, I treasured the brief hours we could work together to cultivate their “Gratitude Awareness.” In the final phase of this project and creative journey, the young artists floated bubble-shaped tissue paper upward in their pieces, conveying Optimism and Hope for a better future. Due to illness and low attendance, some young artists struggled to complete this last step. Their determination to be included in this unique exhibition fueled the final work on their sacred pieces.

Working at the Dowd Center has provided me with insight into the daily lives of these middle school students who are from diverse cultures. For a moment in time, once a week, we gathered in the art room after the community dinner. There we discussed the meaning of Gratitude and made visual decisions to share and to teach one another about Love. Children at this age are often easily excited, so holding their focus can be challenging. I am personally honored to have glimpsed inside their visions, even if only to witness their creative journeys for but a brief moment.

Art Opening - Angie Rucker

From the Artist:

In this work, I visit themes of femininity, tragedy, and coping. I am completely mystified by human endurance, by the capacity to endure unimaginable hardship, and emerge, whole, void, or not at all.  Moments when people are hanging from a cliff and make a decision to either let go or climb up.  I am interested in that isolated chapter in a life when something happens to change it forever and nothing from that moment on will ever be the same.
   
I am curious about how the people that experience these hardships survive, or why they don’t.  Why people either give up, emerge to be able to enjoy life again, or merely continue to exist, unable to step to either side.   I am interested in the journey of the soul under unbearable weight, and why it ends where it does. 
   
By using self-portraiture as a mode of transportation, I have employed various objects - organic, found, or created, as metaphors to tell a visual narrative in hopes the viewer questions the meaning of the elements and why they are placed in the manner they appear.  By merging the reality of despair with the surreal realm of fantasy, these photographs are depictions of the longing to awake and find it all a dream.  Intended to grip and overwhelm the viewer, I have immersed the work in anguish, and in so doing, somehow hope for my own escape, with the realization that some of us never will.
