The Best December Art Shows

0 Comments · Wednesday, December 1, 2010
Let's hope you won’t be too busy during December preparing for and celebrating the various holidays to get to area museums and galleries for their art exhibits. There are quite a few good ones. Here are my recommendations, based either on seeing them or being familiar with the artists/subject matter.

Area museums and galleries offer cornucopia of exhibitions this fall

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 1, 2010
Over the next few months area museums and galleries are presenting a variety of outside-the-box fare, including quilts, wedding dresses, motorcycles and even an installation made of trees. The Taft Museum, Cincinnati Art Museum, Contemporary Art Museum, Country Club, Manifest Gallery, Carnegie Center, Weston Art Gallery, Carl Solway Gallery and Thunder-Sky Inc. are pulling out all the stops for patrons.  

Walls, Floors and Ceilings (Review)

Experiments in how art occupies space at Solway Gallery

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 14, 2009
The ubiquity of Installation Art in museums and galleries for decades now suggests, perhaps incorrectly, that it's a widely understood concept. But Carl Solway Gallery's latest exhibition seems to act as an introduction to Installation Art practices, with 15 artists creating piles, puddles and wall treatments that in many cases boast attractive color schemes and intricate handwork.

Constructed Paper (Review)

Judy Pfaff's collages portray an untamed natural world full of surprise

Judy Pfaff's current exhibition of large-scale collaged works and small prints seems to continue an abiding interest that Carl Solway Gallery has in highly accomplished, mid-career artists who favor abstract interpretations of nature through a variety of approaches.   

Modern Love

Carl Solway Gallery displays a likable tribute to Merce Cunningham's modern artistic vision

There's much to say about legendary modern dancer/choreographer Merce Cunningham, but above all he's a well-rounded, thoroughly modern guy. Carl Solway Gallery is hosting 'A Tribute to Merce Cunningham in His 90th Year,' a smallish but worthy assembly of Cunningham's drawings, photos of the artist and in-depth documentaries shown on flat screens.   

Four Exhibits (Review)

Commonalities among exhibiting artists at Carl Solway Gallery

0 Comments · Wednesday, February 4, 2009
It seems possible that the four concurrent exhibitions now presented at Carl Solway Gallery are meant to link abstract artists from the past to two contemporary artists who grapple with abstraction, color, humanity and nature. I wish there were more show-stoppers to see, but the four artists provide ample visuals for consideration.
