Celene Hawkins at the Taft

Holly Rouse
11 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday-Friday. 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday., Sunday August 25 | $4-$10. Free Sundays.

Inspired by the Taft’s European landscape paintings, Cincinnati-based artist Celene Hawkins's exhibition draws upon the botanical motifs found in gilded decorative frame, as well as the landscapes ensconced within. In her work, frames move beyond merely presenting a work of art to becoming art themselves. Within these structures, Hawkins incorporates her vision of the modern landscape, which echoes and challenges the ideal presented in nineteenth century painting. Hawkins is hosting an Artist's Talk on Sept. 15 sponsored by The Suzanne M. and Robert L. LaBoiteaux Family Foundation. The event is free, but reservations are required. For more information about the exhibition, visit www.taftmuseum.org or call 513-684-4515. Exhibit runs through Oct. 20.
