     (AAPNW-OH) –   On view at the Dublin Arts Council through April 22, “All about Evenatom” are works by Professor Emeritus Eugene Friley, who taught for more than four decades at Ohio State University in the ceramics program. The show features thematic reliefs and ceramic sculptures with explorations of diverse and compelling subjects, such as black holes and Einstein’s formula.

     With a strong affinity for public art and garden sculptures, Friley’s innovative use of ceramic materials, figurative forms, playful organic designs and nature’s presence are highly prevalent in his art, Also in the show are drawings and paintings from his studio work.

     During his youth years, he entered OSU in 1939 and became a ceramic engineering major, but placed his studies on hold to serve in the Air Force as a B-29 bombardier in World War II–Pacific Theatre. After the war, he returned to OSU as a ceramic art major, earning a BFA in 1947 and MFA in 1949.
