Paintings by Ohio Wesleyan professor emeritus Marty Kalb, recipient of a newly announced 2023-2024 Individual Excellence Award from the Ohio Arts Council, will be on display from April 16 through May 12 at the Richard M. Ross Art Museum, 60 S. Sandusky St., Delaware.

The Ohio Arts Council award celebrates the creativity and imagination that exemplify the highest level of achievement in the Fine Arts. Kalb’s upcoming exhibit includes paintings that capture the ocean as it interacts with the tides, wind, and shore. Each image isolates a single moment in time, reminding viewers of the force of the ocean and the changeable nature of water.

A Delaware resident, Kalb taught painting, drawing, and modern art history in OWU’s Department of Fine Arts from 1967 to 2007. Learn more about him and his work at
