Eric Rausch is a young professional ceramic artist and art administrator in Columbus, Ohio. After graduating from The Ohio State University with a BFA in Ceramics, Eric set up a studio and began his career as an artist. This led to organizing art events including gallery exhibitions, pop-up shows, street festivals and craft fairs—all of which finally led him to the Cultural Arts Center where he works as the Ceramic Studio Manager, Instructor, Exhibition and Workshop Coordinator. Eric sits on the Board of Trustees for Glass Axis, a non-profit glass art center; Green Columbus, a local sustainability non-profit; and is on the Steering Committee for the Central Ohio Visual Arts Consortium. Rausch’s work is a mix of functional and fine art works ranging from pottery to sculpture and mixed media with a smattering of painting and other 2D work.

Eric will share his insights on what it takes to be an artist in the Midwest today, delving into topics relating to artists, business owners and community leaders. Rausch will discuss how all of these groups can come together to make a thriving community.
