Dana Grubbe is the Bexley Public Library’s Guest Artist for November and December, 2020
Dana Grubbe, a Dublin Area Art League Member, is a Bexley artist known for her contemporary abstracts. She works in repurposed house paint, in oil and cold wax, and in encaustic. Much of the house paint used in Dana’s paintings was donated by Bexley residents responding to requests made on Bexley Facebook groups.
Dana’s work can vibrate with color, texture, and metal leaf. Driven by her love of process as much as by her love of color and texture, she is in her studio at 400 West Rich every day. Recent series include: “Memories of India,” “Travels in Ireland,” and “Social Distancing.”
Dana has a piece in the Bexley Art Library and in the permanent collection of the Encaustic Art Museum in Santa Fe, NM.
Education has always been part of Dana’s process. She studies with Pamela Caughey, Jerry McLaughlin, and Gwen Fox, and paints with friends at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center. Dana teaches art workshops at 400 West Rich.
Dana is represented by Hayley Gallery in New Albany.
