Alice Pixley Young's "Inside Out" is currently on display at Semantics Gallery



If you haven't been to the CINCINNATI ART MUSEUM (CAM) lately, then you've missed Fountain Square's very own Genius of the Water (part of the Fountain Square fountain), which took up temporary residence at the museum once construction on Fountain Square began. She's already due back home, however, so Thursday will be your last chance to enjoy her up close and personal at the CAM. The last of a series of "Fountain Farewell" parties, visitors can enjoy light refreshments and the chance for a professional photo with the Lady before she returns to her permanent home. Stop by on your lunch hour: the event is free. Noon-2:30 p.m. Thursday.

It's the end of the month, which means it's Final Friday on Main Street, at the Pendleton and in the Brighton district. Be among the first to catch a look at artist ALICE PIXLEY YOUNG's newest exhibition at SEMANTICS GALLERY (1107 Harrison Ave. Brighton), where she opens Inside Out, an exhibition of large-scale paper constructions. Inspired by a variety of sources, including fairytales, language, women's experiences and her personal history, Young creates constructions of hand-dyed paper and vintage fabrics interwoven with rock salt and lit with LED lights. In particular, she creates her work from interesting words and phrases that stick with her, which she then interweaves repeatedly into her constructions for a striking final product.
