An artists’ reception for Carol Boram-Hays and Louise Captein will be held from 4-6 p.m. Jan. 19, at Ohio Wesleyan’s Richard M. Ross Art Museum, 60 S. Sandusky St., Delaware. Works by both artists will be on display at the museum from Jan. 17-April 2.
- Boram-Hays is exhibiting “Accumulated Errors,” a collection of sculpture. She teaches at Columbus College of Art & Design and uses metal remains reclaimed from industrial sites as well as steel ductwork, conduit, and electrical wiring to create art that explores “our conflicted relationship with industrialized culture.” She casts the metal within concrete poured into forms and then uses mason stains to color their surfaces.

- Captein is exhibiting “From One Thing to Another,” a collection of paintings and collage. Captein teaches at Otterbein University and is originally from the Netherlands. Her paintings are based on sketches of brightly colored paper collages. Each painting is an exact copy of the original collage and involves a careful mixing of colors and meticulous application of thin layers of paint to create a smooth surface.
