Matthew Shelton Brings His Lightboxes and Music Home

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 5, 2012
I first met Matthew Shelton in the bottom of a swimming pool. It was a program in which musicians performed on the floor of the empty Ziegler Pool in Over-the-Rhine. Shelton, with his deep resonant voice and wry, smart songs, made an immediate impression playing guitar in the pool’s deep end. He towered above — or, rather, below — his surroundings.  

Two Good Shows At Brighton Galleries

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 17, 2010
The two Brighton co-op galleries that try to maintain ongoing, changing exhibition schedules — Semantics and U-turn Art Space — have a challenge in luring audiences to their shows. They only have regular hours of noon-4 p.m. Saturdays, along with opening-night receptions. Still, so-called “alternative art spaces” are a crucial component for any city that wants to have meaningful contemporary art.  

Artful Menagerie

Artist/taxidermist Jeremy Johnson meddles with nature at Prairie

1 Comment · Wednesday, November 3, 2010
Never before have I seen such a menagerie in an art gallery. An iridescent blue peacock, its feathers spreading at least 8 feet, stands in full glory near the entrance to Prairie gallery in Northside. Artists have long looked to nature for inspiration, but with his exhibition Meddling with Nature, Jeremy Johnson takes this tradition to another level. He observes, preserves and presents animals that once flew, ran and roamed about our natural environment.

Read on to learn about UC, Miami, Xavier and other schools in our area. You can even learn which local program, despite our economy, has had 100% job placement for the last 15 years.  

Campus Caring

This year's top trend: more personal attention to students

0 Comments · Wednesday, August 11, 2010
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.  

20 Years/20 Artists (Review)

The Art Academy shows works by recipients of recently cut artist grants

0 Comments · Tuesday, August 10, 2010
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

0 Comments · Tuesday, August 3, 2010
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.
