Cincinnati's visual arts community is rallying around the seriously ill artist Brian Joiner to raise money for his medical expenses. This Friday from 5-10 p.m., a retrospective of his work — everything from note cards to a 30-foot work, featuring subjects like running women, a school of fish and his portraits, florals and landscapes — will be on display at the studio of Mary Barr Rhodes, in the building at 424 Findlay St., Studio 2B, in the West End that also houses Carl Solway Gallery.

The event will accept all forms of payment and can provide a tax number for use in writing off major donations. The Duncanson Committee of the Taft Museum (Joiner was a Duncanson artist-in-residence last year) is arranging for food. Eugene Goss and Triage will provide music.

Although the reason for this event was less than happy, the event was truly representative of the best of Cincinnati creative and business community. Attended by the widest array of diversity, it was a celebration of the contribution in art that Brian gave thoughout his life. Mary Barr Rhodes hosted Doctors, Lawyers, Musicians, Visual Artists, Educators, Non-Profit Directors, Corporate Execs, Avid Collectors, Photographers, Docents, Dancers, Reporters, Yoga Instructors....etc. who were young, mature , black, white, aisian, hispanic from every class level, curious or sad. All coming together, hugging, talking and energized by one another. Truly what celebrating art is supposed to be about. A NY style art show, I loved it!!
