Arts and Entrepreneurship

Guest Speaker
Eric Rausch is a 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 currently resides in Westerville with his wife Jen, who is also an artist and educator, and daughter Ruby.
