Tom KellyNine Muses, Barberton’s new community art gallery, will host a Columbus artist Tom Kelly. His show opens Friday August 29 at 5pm.

About the Artist: Tom Kelly is a self-taught mixed-media visual artist.  Kelly cites the lyric writing of Sappho, Waits/Brennan, Leonard Cohen, the re-use of everyday objects, ancient history, and the poetry of Thomas Gray, William Butler Yeats, and Theodore Roethke as inspirations for his work. His paintings appear in private collections across North America. In the Autumn of 2008 he made his museum debut at the Southern Ohio Museum for his “if not, winter” series of works on paper. In 2011 he was named a finalist for a Greater Columbus Arts Council Visual Arts Fellowship.
