Marc Ross: Paintings for Plum Ridge

Marc Ross: Paintings for Plum Ridge

Exhibition: September 3 – November 12, 2017

Meet-the-Artist Reception: September 10, 2017

In Paintings for Plum Ridge, the art of Marc Ross pays tribute to the aesthetics of Minimalism, a movement which celebrated simplicity and the power of color.  However, the minimalist paintings of Ross are not just about saluting past philosophies. They instead reveal a technical facility in surface and color rarely seen today.

Marc Ross was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. After having lived in Chicago and Baltimore, Maryland, he returned to Ohio eighteen years ago with his wife and son. He received his BFA from Ohio University, attended graduate school at the University of Chicago, completed his MFA at Kent State University and received a degree in education from Ashland University.

Ross has exhibited in numerous venues, including the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Butler Institute of American Art, the Klutznick National Jewish Museum, the Southern Ohio Museum, and various galleries in Cleveland, Chicago, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Baltimore, New York City and Washington, D.C.
