Columbus, Ohio (June 2015) — The Pizzuti Collection is pleased to announce our summer show THIS JUST IN: NEW ACQUISITIONS (July 1 – August 29, 2015), a dynamic exhibition of twelve newly acquired works from the collection of Ron and Ann Pizzuti. These stunning paintings, sculptures, videos, and photographs reflect the Pizzuti’s most recent interests as collectors and puts on view their passionate eye for new work by a fascinating mix of emerging and established artists from across the United States, Japan, Israel, and Sweden.

 

The works run the gamut from large-scale abstract painting to dramatic furniture design to dreamlike figurative paintings of landscapes. We are especially excited to show Ori Gersht’s latest video work from his January 2015 show at CRG Gallery in New York as well as one of Alec Soth’s brilliant photographs from the profoundly beautiful Songbook series. THIS JUST IN: NEW ACQUISITIONS brings some of the most lauded contemporary art to Columbus, giving our community an inside view into the global art scene’s present moment.

The opening of THIS JUST IN: NEW ACQUISITIONS coincides with new hours for the Pizzuti Collection. Starting in July, the Pizzuti Collection will be open Tuesday – Saturday 11:00AM – 5:00PM. The extended hours offer visitors additional opportunities to view the exhibitions and experience all that the Pizzuti Collection has to offer.

 

ABOUT THE PIZZUTI COLLECTION:

The Pizzuti Collection is a nonprofit organization presenting temporary exhibitions of contemporary art from the collection of Ron and Ann Pizzuti. Housed in an historic building located in the Short North Arts District of Columbus, Ohio, the Pizzutis restored and transformed the 18,000 square foot space into several beautiful light-filled galleries, a sculpture garden, and public resource library. Upon completion, the Pizzutis gifted the building to the Pizzuti Collection. Each season we present an exciting range of exhibitions drawn from a collection of paintings, sculpture, film, photography, drawings, and prints that has been ranked as one of the top in the world. We also offer educational programs, lectures, artist talks, and special events throughout the year. Coming from the point of few of a passionate collector, the Pizzuti Collection seeks to present art by underrepresented voices from around the globe with work that transcends, elevates the mind, and expresses freedoms. While the art comes from the family collection, as a nonprofit organization the Pizzuti Collection belongs to the community.
