For this Columbus, Ohio-based artist, his solo exhibition, “Mac Worthington: Urban Sprawls” marks a primarily new medium and context of acrylic paintings and sculpture. His show opens with a reception at the Dublin Arts Council on Tuesday, February 24 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm and remains on view through March 27, 2015.

     A self-taught artist, his works are in collections in all 50 U.S. states, as well as in Canada, Spain, England, France, Germany and Italy. Worthington’s artwork includes his well-known stainless steel and aluminum abstract wall sculptures, monumental outdoor works, radical functional art and small tabletop pieces. His traditional artwork features high detail, with polished and brushed surfaces and dynamic finishes that take on the feel of substantially oversized jewelry.

     After his time as an Army special forces Green Beret in Vietnam, Worthington returned to Ohio and settled in Ostrander in 1975, where he lives in a log cabin on three wooded acres and works from a studio that looks much like a machine shop. Worthington has enhanced his property with his artwork, describing the woods as a sculpture park.
