You’ll find Mac Worthington’s sculptures and paintings all across Ohio, the United States and abroad. Lucky for us, you need go no further than Long and High now to take in the vibrant artwork of this local artist. You’ll see everything from downtown skylines to metal sculptures to functional art (think really cool desks and chairs).
Mac lives in rural Delaware County where he has a studio for metal work and another for painting; and for nearly 30 years, he owned a gallery in the Short North, but he was quickly running out of room and needed a larger space. “I am looking at the downtown area as a new chapter,” said Mac. “I love all the great growth going on everywhere you look. The Atlas building is a beautiful, completely renovated historic building.”
From abstract expressionist cityscapes to heavy metal outdoor sculptures to insanely cool functional art, Mac, who comes from a long line of artists, creates space where he’s always learning and improving. He works in many different disciplines and media, which is apparent when you walk into his Downtown gallery.
As soon as you open up the door and step inside, color greets you in a variety of media. Don’t worry if you see something different than your friend as you peruse the pieces. It inspires him to create sculptures in which everyone sees a little something different.
Mack curates a world class, upscale, dramatic, elegant and bold gallery. His work of course takes center stage, but other artist’s find room in the gallery – even jewelry and glass. In addition to what you see in the gallery, Mac creates site-specific commissions. So, if you see something that inspires you in the gallery, but it won’t quite fit in your home, talk to him. Mac will create something just for you.
Come on by for the gallery's grand opening this Friday, November 20 from 6-9 p.m. The gallery, located at 138 North High Street, is regularly open Monday through Saturday, noon to 6 p.m.
