OGRE
Hareuhticks


As a long-established venue for free speech and freedom of expression, Hallwalls is pleased to present a new series of dynamic paintings by Cincinnati artist OGRE, each depicting historical figures from diverse eras who have all been—for whatever reason—deemed as "heretics."
 

John Peña
New Works


Peña's work operates across various media (including the ongoing "one cartoon each day" autobiography called Daily Geology) and across various emotional strata. In certain works, Peña illustrates a desire to engage and sometimes emulate the natural world, while in other works, he teases out the awkward reality and unavoidable pathos of the human condition.
