Almond Zigmund: Opening Friday, Jan 21, 6-8

Almond Zigmund

On view in the Rebecca Ibel Gallery in the Short North

1055 North High Street, Columbus OH 43201

Exhibition open January 21 – March 5

Opening Reception: Friday, January 21, 6-8 pm

The Rebecca Ibel Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of recent sculpture and works on paper by Almond Zigmund. The exhibition will begin with an opening reception on January 21, 2011 and remains open through February 26, 2011.

Zigmund draws on conceptualist and minimalist masters (such as Sol LeWitt) while infusing her work with an unmistakably contemporary and unique aesthetic.

Her sculpture and works on paper are sharp and precisely constructed. Bold color schemes, geometric shapes, and complex but cleanly-delineated patterns predominate. Zigmund often plays on and revitalizes architectural themes and intricate commercial patterns. Through her work, she explores the way we experience the space of our everyday environment, while challenging us to question and recalibrate our perceptions of the physical world around us. Zigmund applies her clean technique, fresh aesthetic, and subversive perspective to multi-media site-specific installations, sculpture, and works on paper.

Based in New York, Zigmund continues to gain national attention with numerous exhibitions on both the East Coast and West Coast, in addition to exhibiting internationally. Recent shows include the Parrish Museum of Art, Southampton NY and the University of La Verne, La Verne CA. Zigmund earned a BFA from the Parsons School of Design, before attaining an MFA from The University of Las Vegas, where she studied with Dave Hickey. The Rebecca Ibel gallery has represented Zigmund since 2005.

For further information visit us at or call 614-291-2555. The Rebecca Ibel Gallery features fine contemporary art. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11 am – 5 pm and by appointment.

Artnet Design by Brook S. Mason

Rob Wynne's work with architect Peter Marino for Christian Dior is featured in a new Artnet magazine article.

"Marino turned to the New York artist Rob Wynne, fast becoming a design-world star for his fluid mirror-glass installations, who provided works such as the dripping pink "Radiant" glass letters affixed to a mirror. The store features a total of four Wynne installations."
