Columbus: Crowdsourced

October 10, 2017
12:00 pm
Studios on High Gallery

686 N High St
Columbus, OH United States

Jessica Wojtasek is an urban landscape painter. Her fall show is the result of an interactive jurying process that encourages the community and fellow art lovers to vote on select works to curate the artist’s solo show. To create her show, the artist chose iconic locations from Columbus and painted the same imagery in different lighting and mood as small painting "studies." Hundreds of people voted at ColumbusCrowdsourced.com, a web app that Jessica designed, to choose their favorite study. “As a painter whose subject matter is Columbus, I thought it would be fun to involve the Columbus community in the curation of my show, since we all experience our city differently," explained Jessica. The artist painted the community's top choices as large scale final paintings. As a thank you, Jessica is giving an original piece of art to three randomly-selected voters who helped curate the show. Both studies and final paintings will be on display. Jessica is a member artist with Studios on High Gallery, and this will be her first solo show. She will be in attendance from 5-10pm on November 4 to greet visitors and jurors. Voting on ColumbusCrowdsourced.com will be open through September 1.
