Captein values the qualities of spontaneity and directness, which she embraces in her artwork. Through her career, she has been fascinated with the content of abstract and semi-abstract forms and by the effects of arbitrary color. She seeks depth, volume and richness in layers, much the way one layers clothing on the body. Captein, an associate professor in the Department of Art at Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio, studied painting and drawing/printmaking over a 10-year period in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She is currently a Master of Fine Arts student at School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Gallery hours are Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, visit www.dublinarts.org or call 614.889.7444.
