This month Prairie in Northside hosts More is Always More
, an exhibition and collaborative installation by artists Lesley Ash and Kenton Brett. Ash is currently Brooklyn-based, but earned her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Cincinnati in 2011. Brett, formerly of the Arthole collaborative, earned a bachelor’s degree from UC in 2007 and currently plies his trade with the Playhouse in the Park as well as The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati
. This current show combines their shared strengths as draftsmen to present a mural-scale, 60-foot-long graphite and cut-paper drawing crammed with humor and intrigue. Brett’s paper puppets — frequently taking the form of human-animal hybrids — interact with Ash’s myriad landscapes, running the gamut from pastoral to post-apocalyptic. The rear gallery features a charming series of individual ink on paper works by both artists. Through Sept. 1. Prairie Gallery. 4035 Hamilton Ave., Northside. Tuesday-Saturday. firstname.lastname@example.org.
