Artists Collages Local Landscapes

May 17, 2013

ST. MARY — Jane Dippold sees this part of Ohio as beautiful country, and tonight, when her art exhibition opens at Arts Center in St. Marys, she will invite others to see the familiar countryside through her eyes.

Roughly two years ago Dippold started capturing specific places in Auglaize and Mercer counties and collaging them.

“I’m not interested in creating imagined places. I want to represent a particular place,” she said.

Dippold had done some collaging before she started the landscapes.

“It’s not the most glamorous job but it’s, so far, been pretty interesting,” Tiffany Jones said.
