Event Details

Water-colored block prints and pen and ink drawings set the scene. The ArtsaRound Gallery on the Original Circle welcomes Circleville local and Pumpkin Show-winning artist Steve Spicer for a one-man gallery show and event. The show, titled “Prints and Drawings by Steve Spicer,” will start April 1st and run Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through April 24th, 2022.
The gallery is located at 135 W. Main Street in the heart of Historic Downtown Circleville. An artist Meet and Greet Gala will be held Sunday, April 3rd, from 1 to 4 pm.
Works of art have inspired the artist from the Colonial Williamsburg craft program and Kentucky Appalachian handcraft traditions. Mr. Spicer’s artwork has been admired and sold everywhere.
“I turned to printmaking as a major means of artistic expression,” says Spicer. “It is my creative intent to share with you the beauty I see all around me, Expressed through the framework of traditional art and craft.” The multiple edition prints are printed from hand-carved linoleum blocks, many of which are hand watercolored—also displayed in pen and ink drawings.
Steve Spicer graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in art education and began his teaching career. He was fortunate in those early days to get a volunteer position in the craft program at what was then The Ohio Village of the Ohio Historical Society. There, among other trades, he spent some time in the print shop where he learned to set type and make wood engravings in the 19th-century tradition.
“We always enjoy hosting Mr. Spicer in our Gallery.” JP Pennell, ArtsaRound Vice President, states, “He is an accomplished artist and a local favorite. Most people from Pickaway County recognize his work!”
This show would not be possible without the support of the gallery’s Corporate Sponsors: Rosena’s Treasures, Richie’s New York Corner Deli, and JB Productions.
ArtsaRound is a non-profit organization formed in 2001, dedicated to supporting art and artists in Pickaway County and the regional area.
Local volunteers operate the gallery, and hours may vary based on volunteer availability, special classes, gallery events, and other advertised downtown events.
