Featured Artist - Doc Galahan
July 15 - September 15, 2021
"Creativity is that marvelous capacity to grasp mutually distinct realities and draw a spark from their juxtaposition" - Max Ernst
Doc Galahan is a Cincinnati-based pseudonymous artist, printmaker and writer who reimagines 19th century engravings into a menagerie of steampunk creatures, autonomous beings and experimental curiosities. This exhibition is a first act, an introduction of the characters and the setting of an alternate Victorian-era Cincinnati re-envisioned as Queensgate, a metropolis at the center of British America. It is a first step in a larger tale, which Doc explains is about a world similar to our own: "A world split down the middle, plagued by civil war and fractured between those who are human and those who are supernatural. It is a warning from a world too afraid and too proud to overcome and ultimately embrace their differences".
With this first exhibition, Doc Galahan has taken 25 prints and has re-imagined them by presenting them in various visual formats: Anaglyph 3D prints, Lenticular prints and Holographic installations. This exhibition is the first step in a journey in which Doc Galahan will be revealing his story through art and literary releases over the course of 2021 and 2022. Proceeds of the art will be used to fund the production of an illustrative literary work: Doc Galahan's Arcanarium: Book I: The Queensgate Plague.

Submit Your Artist work for Gallery Consideration
Artists submissions will be reviewed on a regular basis. A panel will determine which artwork is featured and when it may appear in the ArtsConnect gallery. Galleries are changed every 2 to 3 months in order to feature several professional artists in a year. All artwork must be able to be hung. (We are unable to exhibit sculpture at this time.)
