From one World to another



There is a new exhibit of art at the Barcelona Restaurant & Bar – Columbus in German Village. The imagery Larry Hamill is presenting comes from the world of abstract 3 Dimensional Space and is translated into the 2nd Dimension.



The artwork on the walls of Barcelona is a new series of 3 dimensional imagery. In a way it is similar to aerial photography. The various shapes are created and placed on a flat white plane. The “camera” position is moved over the geometric landscape until a pleasing vantage point is selected. Low res renderings are done until the composition and light sources have a interesting visual resonance. At that time a high resolution file is rendered. 15% of the sales of this artwork will be donated to the German village Society.Barcelona_Panorama2-LR Barcelona-2Barcelona-1A different World of images is currently on display at Giuseppe’s Ritrovo Restaurant is in the city of Bexley at the corner of Drexel & Main Streets. This artwork concerns the interaction of Symmetry  and Asymmetry in older communities.

A Walk Through German Village

What better place to see art work of German Village than at a German Village establishment.  Come view hi-dynamic range images of the village and indulge in wine, tapas and more.

Inspired by seaside sangria and a walk on the Ramblas, Barcelona is a culinary fusion of metropolitan chic & Old World European charm.

Chef Paul’s authentic Spanish cuisine reflects the changing of the season.

Mirror Images Reflect New Views

Looking Eastward on Reinhard

Symmetry implies a sense of balance.  The images in this post deal with symmetry found in spatial relationships and reflections or what Wikipedia calls patterned self-similarity.

Looking Eastward on Frankfort

These images present a unique view of German Village.  Reinhard Avenue forms the northern border of Schiller Park, while Deshler Avenue forms the southern border of the park.

Looking Southward on City Park

The repetition of a hat in many of the images harkens back to days when everyone, male or female, wouldn’t be fully dressed without a stylish hat to bring a sense of symmetry to their ensemble.

Other various anomalies are incorporated into some of the images to encourage the viewer to explore the work in depth and experience a new understanding of visual contrasts.

Our new graphic display is now in place at the newly renovated Grange Insurance headquarters on S. Front Street in the Brewery District. The installation, which consists of a total of seven pieces, is located in the recently relocated claims office.

The curved wall, pictured above, includes photos of the Franklin County
courthouse, the sculptural gavel next to the Ohio Supreme Court, the Union
Station Arch and three shots from the new Grange addition. The diagonal and vertical elements of each photograph make this group of images work as a synergetic whole.

The seventh image, pictured below, is a 130″x 38″mural of German Village images. This single image was output on canvas and stretched over a wooden
frame, creating a frameless stand alone presence within the office space.

Special thanks is owed Greg Moulin of idecora Wall Décor Identity for
his patented framing technology. Greg and his team offer unique display
options for corporate clients looking to establish an identity within their corporate settings.

German Village Family Portrait Marks Another Era

GV Family Portrait-2

Since 1986, residents and friends of the German Village Society have gathered in Schiller Park for a springtime family photo. The event is the brainchild of Fred Holdridge, a German Village Society trustee and German Village landmark in his own right.

“I’ve taken the family portrait since its inception,” said Larry Hamill, a village based photographer. “In a way, it’s a study in demographics – marking not only how people have changed over the years, but the park as well.”

Erin O’Donnell, executive director of the society, noted that these photos will become part of the German Village archives. Years from now, when new residents of the village look at these portraits, hopefully they will look past the clothing and hair styles and wonder how the stories of each individual added to the essence of life in the village.

Copies of the photograph can be obtain through the German Village Society.

German Village Photographer Receives Award

New F&H

The German Village Society’s annual membership meeting, held May 17, included the presentation of the Fred and Howard Ambassador Award. We’re happy to announce that Larry Hamill was recognized this year.

Over the years, Larry has captured the glow of Schiller Park on Village Lights Night, the Haus und Garten Tour and documented a dozen residences of German Village, in the buff, for the society’s promotional calendar, “The Naked Truth: The Men of German Village”.

The society’s president, Brigid Butler, said they were lucky to have a gifted artist in German Village who contributes his talents so generously.
