Louise Captein: As Per Usual, an exhibition of abstract collage, will be on view Nov. 14 through Dec. 15 at Dublin Arts Council, 7125 Riverside Dr., in Dublin. The exhibition opens with a reception for the artist Tuesday, Nov. 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition and the reception are free of charge.
Captein values the qualities of spontaneity and directness, which she embraces in her artwork. Throughout her career, she has been fascinated with abstract and semi-abstract forms and the effects of arbitrary color. She seeks depth, volume and richness in layers, much the way one layers clothing on the body.
Captein, an associate professor in the Department of Art and Art History at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio, studied painting and drawing at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and received her master’s degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Gallery hours are 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.
