The Sandusky Cultural Center is hosting the Gold Exhibit from 1-4 p.m. from Sunday, October 21 to Sunday, November 25 at their gallery located at 2130 Hayes Avenue in Sandusky. 

“We asked artists to look at the color gold and tell us what it means to them,” said Charles Mayer, director of the Sandusky Cultural Center. “For some gold meant wealth and value and for others it was looked at as a color.”

With 23 artists’ works displayed at the exhibit, their work ranges from art on dollar bills to clothing made out of glittery gold fabric to leather that has stories about gold carved into it.

“We have all kinds of different mediums on display at this exhibit,” Mayer said. “We have sculptures, paintings, jewelry and variety of other mediums.”

All of the pieces at the exhibit are for sale and all the profits go to the artists.

Some of the work featured in the exhibit is from local artists, while other work is from artists from Cleveland, Chicago and Michigan.

“Prices for the work range from $40 to $3,000,” Mayer said. “There really is a variety of work offered for all budgets.”

So far the exhibit has been a huge success with buyers especially interested in taking some of the work home.

“We have had a wonderful response from the community so far and we hope that continues,” Hayes said. “Art is one of the most fascinating things there is and it expands the way you look at the world. I highly recommend everyone come and check out this exhibit and maybe find something that would look great in your home.”

The exhibit runs from Sunday, October 21 to Sunday, November 25. The gallery is open every day except for Saturdays and holidays.
