The Works Main Gallery exhibit–“Piercing the Veil,” features the work of two nationally known artists: Renate Burgyan Fackler and Stacy Leeman. Fackler’s work in cast bronze is both figurative and abstract. Her work appears extensively throughout the country, including: The Herb Society of America, Wendy’s International, The Museum of American Women, and The White House private collection. Her life-size Brutus is a favorite photo spot at The Ohio State University Student Union. She also created statues of Jerrie Mock, Newark native and the first woman to fly solo around the world, displayed at The Works and at John Glenn International Airport.
Stacy Leeman’s abstract oil paintings explore stories and ideas through color, line, and texture. She has participated in more than 100 exhibitions throughout the United States. Her work has received numerous awards, including grants from the Greater Columbus Arts Council and Vermont Studio Center. Leeman earned her MFA from Rutgers University, holds a BA from Oberlin College, and studied at Parsons School of Design in Paris. The Sharon Weiss Gallery and Charlotte Fine Art Gallery represent her work.
