  • (1888PressRelease) April 23, 2013 - (Columbus, OH) - The controversial art series "Dreams, Nightmares, Fears and Fantasy" series by Jason Dowd of Dowd Studios is coming to Columbus, OH. His work was picked up by the Mac Worthington Gallery which will display this haunting art series.

    Dowd's work will hang in the gallery from June or July 2013 for a period of 60 days in his "Experience My Inner Weird Exhibition". In addition Dowd will be a featured artist in their online gallery for the month of May; a rare invitation by the gallery for brand new displaying artists. To see the feature visit

    The collection will contain pieces from all volumes of the "Dreams, Nightmares, Fears and Fantasy" collection and since it's a family friendly gallery his more conservative pieces will hang on the walls.
    Since the collection was first shot in 2010, his work has hung in San Diego, Atlanta, Macon, Tarpon Springs, Tampa, Arcadia and Hong Kong, China. Now the series comes to the Midwest for the first time since the series debut.

    The collection's success comes from a few key factors. Each series tells a story, many of the stories are written on Dowd's blog on his website. Each photo is carefully casted and researched from the costumes down to the techniques to make it look real. Finally the third factor in the success is that it portrays things most artists won't dare to tackle; this causes the viewers to think and react.

    "Dreams, Nightmares, Fears and Fantasy" pretty much sums up the series. It covers things that makes your stomach turn or makes the hair on your neck stand up with its horror and nightmare ambiance to magical and fun loving characters.

    "This is such an honor to be included in such a great gallery and to have my work hang with dozens of other phenomenally talented artists is something I take great pride in. I've always wanted to get into Ohio and now my dream is a reality. I have family and friends here so that makes it even more special" says Dowd.

    Dowd's goal with his work is to tell a story and portray the need for balance in life between the good and bad. Dowd is not afraid to walk the line to get a point across or invoke some kind of emotion or thought.
    "I want people to look beyond the outer appearance and look at what the piece is saying; just because it looks like some kind of horror shot it may have a beautiful underlying meaning. Don't judge a book by its cover" says Dowd about his series.
