WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?

Be it the inevitable awareness that students, in particular, are struggling with the startling fallout of this challenging economy or simply an acknowledgment that higher education is being forced to evolve away from the cold bureaucratic model in order to better compete, change is certainly afoot on area campuses this fall.

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.  

Life As Art: Thom Shaw

Remembering the maker of provocative, beautiful art with the power to shift perspectives

News that a great artist has died always raises the stakes for me; the responsibility of creating moving art and important discussions surrounding it is more immense, because there is one less innovator sharing the weight. Thom Shaw — one of Cincinnati's best known and most admired contemporary artists — passed away on July 6, 2010, due to complications from diabetes.  

The Evolution of War Memorial Design

A couple Saturdays ago, I went on an Architectural Foundation of Cincinnati-sponsored excursion to Columbus, Ind., a city just 90 minutes away that has developed an international reputation for its Modernist architecture. Besides the buildings, I was particularly moved by the Bartholomew County Memorial for Veterans in the city's downtown.

The Art Academy of Cincinnati last week announced the departures of two top leaders, President Gregory Allgire Smith and Academic Dean Keith Kutch. While Kutch left on his own accord to accept a position at Stevenson University outside of Baltimore, the circumstances surrounding Smith's departure are still unclear.  

Stewart Goldman: Presence Through Absence (Review)

0 Comments · Wednesday, March 4, 2009
Solid curating and progressive notions have gone into the Cincinnati Art Museum's new solo exhibition in the Vance-Waddell Gallery. The exhibition traces former Art Academy professor Stewart Goldman's evolution from representational painting, of recognizable rooms, into the increasingly less certain terrain of abstract painting.  

Making the Old New Again

Commitment to classical methods pays off for young painter

Jahaziel Minor's senior exhibition at the Art Academy of Cincinnati last April presented something remarkably different from other recent undergraduate shows. It focused on one large painting and the nearly 20 preparatory drawings and oil paintings he made to develop the final canvas.  

Art: Art Academy of Cincinnati

0 Comments · Tuesday, October 28, 2008
However those involved happened to arrive at titling Art Academy's current exhibition "Generosity," truly all meanings apply to what's been presented. A bounty of sculptural works by Nopchai "Toi" Ungkavantanapong create what is without a doubt the most striking use of the Pearlman Gallery space. The predominately plaster and wood objects are elegant and poised like Giacometti's early plaster works, but more readily call to mind various flirtations between aesthetics and functionality in master sculptors like Robert Gober, Robert Morris and Franz West. Smooth, distressed white forms (simple cylinders, "logs," or bowls for example) have been added to wooden hardware that seems worn with use. The exhibition runs daily through Nov. 14.
