The Art Academy of Cincinnati celebrates the first and hopefully not the last 20 years of a program that is one of a kind in the Tristate. '20 Years/20 Artists' showcases the work of artists who have received a city of Cincinnati Individual Artist Grant. With the city trimming its budget, the grant program met the axe. The program might be gone for now, but the work lives on in the AAC's Pearlman and Chidlaw Galleries.
Time has no shape, color or texture. It's non-spatial, constantly changing and invisible. How on earth could an artist hope to capture it? Manifest Gallery explores this elusive medium with the works of 19 artists in 'TEMPO,' curated by Jason Franz, and runs concurrently with 'Rites of Passage' featuring work by college students and recent graduates.
Windmills, wooden clogs and tulip mania — that which we consider quintessentially Dutch might have a little something to do with American nostalgia. The Taft Museum of Art explores America's fascination with the Netherlands in 'Dutch Utopia: American Artists in Holland, 1880-1914.'
It's taken a couple unwanted delays for Cincinnati Art Museum to get 'Imperishable Beauty: Art Nouveau Jewelry' open, but it's been worth the wait. The museum has done a wonderful job displaying it; Cynthia Amnéus, CAM's associate curator of costume and textiles, has really made it look sparkling.
Among the six new exhibits at Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center in Covington are outstanding solo ones by artists Keith Auerbach, Jessica Grace Bechtel, Ken Page and Eric Ruschman, collectively called 'Something for Everyone.' They’re exhibited along with the Clay Alliance group show 'Feast or Famine' and a group show featuring works by children. Through Nov. 25.

After a brief postponement, Imperishable Beauty — an exhibition of Art Nouveau jewelry that has been organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston — is at the Cincinnati Art Museum. This exhibition will look particularly at artisans who worked in precious metals and gemstones to craft a language in jewelry that dialogued with work in stained glass, painting and printmaking — even architectonic forms such as the famous Metro station entrances found throughout Paris. Through Jan. 17.
Looking for the right kind of art show to fill East Walnut Hills' Manifest Gallery during the hot days and nights of August, chief curator Jason Franz has decided to go NUDE. The show, an addition to the planned original season of eight exhibitions, opened Friday and continues through Sept. 11.
NUDE, at the Manifest Gallery, continues through Sept. 11. Out of 600 submissions for NUDE, the jury narrowed the selections, and chief curator Jason Franz ultimately selected 25 works to exhibit. It is interesting that of these 25 nudes, almost half are depictions of men.
SOS ART returns for its seventh year with more than 200 visual artists, literary artists, musicians, performers and school children participating in the six-day event. Creator Saad Ghosn has a track record for encouraging artists to be activists for change and for bringing the community together in sociopolitical dialogue. Through June 7 at the Art Academy.
