The unique "shared gallery" opens this week

The Franklinton neighborhood is celebrating the opening of a new kind of art gallery this week.

Wood.Metal.Art., the unique and minimalistic "shared gallery," will have its grand opening on Thursday, Oct. 3, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Furniture designer Patrick Roberts, painter Rick Borgia and Ohio State industrial design student Jordan Green are using the 2,400-square-foot-space to showcase their work and to create new art.

Wood.Metal.Art. will also serve as a location for regular events and a communal area for other local artists. Roberts, who renovated the space, works with wood, metal and concrete to craft his furniture.

View his work and Borgia's paintings at the grand opening.
