A lot of Cincinnati's hopes and dreams, both past and present, are encapsulated by Northside's Knowlton Street between Hamilton and Crawford avenues — within a short space you can see factories, homes, a defunct funeral parlor, a bar, a bicycle co-op, organic gardens, an art studio, a storefront church. Some are more active today than others, but all reveal the sweeping yet intimate vision that constitutes the evolving history of a true urban neighborhood in America.
Julie Lonneman, a member of printmaking co-op Tiger Lilly Press, travels it daily on her way to her art studio. She has responded to her environs with a new series of two-color relief prints depicting the surroundings, An Artist's Eye on Knowlton Street, which says as much about the mysteries and allure of Northside as that recent New York Times article. It's on display at NVISION through Dec. 6 along with Saad Ghosn's woodcut prints.
