GRANVILLE — During its colourful historical past, the Italianate-design and style, 1860s Bryn Du Mansion has served meal to presidents (Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover) and tea to celebrities (Lillian Gish, Katharine Cornell) hosted pianists (Ignacy Jan Paderewski, Sergei Rachmaninoff) and functioned as a breeding and teaching floor for clearly show horses, not to point out polo games on the great lawn.

Fittingly, one of the functions in this year’s Bryn Du Artwork Display is a graceful portray of polo horses and their riders, established by Columbus artist Michael Guinane. It hangs near a window that appears to be out on to the polo fields.

The sophisticated grounds and mansion absolutely enrich the attraction of the 17th annual version of the eclectic art demonstrate. All over the first flooring of the mansion — as very well as on the internet — more than 80 will work by 79 artists can be liked. Selected from more than 500 submissions by juror Lisa McLymont, a Columbus artist, the performs are by a assortment of national artists and mirror a wide range of variations and mediums, although most are paintings and the the vast majority of the artists are from Ohio.
