Majestic Galleries will celebrate the opening of Spatial Topologies, a collaborative exhibition bringing together four multi-disciplinary artists, with a free, public exhibition on Friday, Feb. 28 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The exhibition features Brian Harnetty, a sound artist from Ohio; Astrid Kaemmerling, a painter and installation artist from North Rhine Westfalia, Germany; Josh Ottum, a musician from California; and Jena Seiler, a video artist from New Mexico.

What binds these artists together is a particular interest in collaborative interdisciplinary activity. With emphases on process and site-specific renderings, the artists aim to explore (de)generative characteristics of spatial experience.

Viewers are invited to immerse themselves in the artists’ production and exploration of place. These experiments manifest themselves in visual depictions of urban intersections, aural documentation of the Little Cities of Black Diamonds, and physical transformations of the gallery space itself.

An additional exhibition running concurrently in the Majestic Galleries Front Gallery will feature the work of Ohio University Honors Tutorial College student Babz Jewell and Ohio University School of Art + Design student Todd Kunkler.

Entitled CODEC, the exhibition will feature paintings and other works by Jewell and Kunkler.

Majestic Galleries is located at 20 Public Square in Nelsonville, Ohio. Gallery hours are 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. every  Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Visit for more information.
