Davin Ebanks to Exhibit Sculpture at Kent State's Downtown Gallery

The work of Davin Ebanks, assistant lecturer in glass at the Kent State University School of Art, will be featured in a solo exhibition at the School of Art's Downtown Gallery, March 16 - April 16, with a reception on March 17 from 5 to 7 p.m.

The exhibit, titled "Luminous Forms," will feature several of Ebanks's most current works, dating from the past academic year at Kent State University. 

Born on Grand Cayman in 1975, the artist spent many of his formative years on the water, learning the lore of seafaring heritage from his grandfather. Many of the sculptures that will be on display are informed by his personal and cultural history. Ebanks's glass sculptures display his love of nature at its macro- and microscopic levels.

Ebanks was recently named a recipient of the 2016 Silver Heritage Cross by the Cayman National Cultural Foundation for contributions to creativity in the arts and "consistent and active, quality engagement in the preservation and/or celebration of Caymanian cultural heritage" over ten years.

The Downtown Gallery is located at 141 E. Main St. in Kent, Ohio, directly adjacent to McKay Bricker Gallery and Framing. Downtown Gallery hours are Monday - Wednesday, 9:30 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Thursday 9:30 a.m. - 8 p.m.; Friday 9:30 a.m. - 7 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.; and Sunday noon - 5 p.m.
