934 Gallery is pleased to present Rick Borg - Collected Works. With more than one-hundred pieces of art on display, this exhibition represents 30 years of the artist’s prolific output. Though Borg has formal art training, his work is widely viewed as folk or outsider art and is deeply steeped in those traditions. Some of the works represented here have been in process for decades yet just recently finished, while others Borg finished long ago but kept hidden away, buried in the stacks of paintings that fill every square inch of his live-in studio. Most of the work is on view here for the first time, offering visitors a unique and in-depth look at the life and career of a visionary artist.
Rick Borg (b. 1958 in Columbus, Ohio) received his MFA from The Ohio State University. His works have been collected and exhibited extensively nationally and internationally, in venues both radical and traditional, from bar rooms and barber shops to mansions and museums, including The Columbus Museum of Art and The Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center. Borg currently lives and works in Columbus, Ohio, at Milo Arts, a thriving artist community housed within an historic elementary school building.
