Limits & Boundaries (Review)

Jarrett Hawkins creates a vocabulary of shapes and forms at Weston Art Gallery

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Jarrett Hawkins' soaring sculptures almost stride through the street-level space at the Weston Art Gallery. His show includes works that exude strength and others that seem tethered rather than standing on their bases, as though they might rise on their own if not held back.

Cincinnati mourns the loss of a beloved artist

2 Comments · Monday, October 11, 2010
Brian Joiner, an esteemed local artist, passed away Oct. 8 after being diagnosed with liver cancer several months ago. He always tried something new in his work and as an African-American artist often addressed tough issues regarding race, politics and spirituality with irony and humor. For his ever-joyful presence, boundless energy and seemingly unlimited generosity, he will be missed by all whose lives he touched.

The House In My Head (Review)

Weston Gallery offers thought-provoking group show

1 Comment · Tuesday, June 29, 2010
The house in your head — the one nobody can foreclose on — is probably an element of the internal life of each of us. But what happens when six artists zero in on explicitly externalizing their visions of such a place? The results are 'The House in My Head,' which fills downtown's Weston Art Gallery through Aug. 29.  

Disturbing Reality (Review)

New group exhibit at the Weston shows art with a psychological bent

1 Comment · Wednesday, April 7, 2010
'Disturbing Reality' at the Weston Art Gallery is as much a group therapy session as a group exhibition. In addition to the expected scenes out of a child's anxiety closet, there are a surprising number of cathartic, even comforting, images. The nine artists in this circle seem to feed off one another.  

Sharks, Symbols and Simulacra

Three exhibitions rich in imagery and narrative open the Weston Art Gallery's new season

0 Comments · Wednesday, September 23, 2009
In the Weston's first exhibitions of the season, Ryan Mulligan, Casey Riordan Millard and Michael Sharber reinforce the overt qualities of fantasy and illustration in one another's work while also calling attention to more understated emo-aesthetics and pseudo-spirituality. Their strength is allowing and controlling the bleed of their personal lives into their richly ambiguous terrains.

Gnarled tree limbs arc above each entrance of downtown's Weston Art Gallery. Lashed together with twine, the limbs create a web-like mass that spreads throughout the Weston's lobby, soaring above in great domes, coiling around pillars, growing up and out of the stairwell.  

Large and Luminous

"It's like chess," Tom Bacher says of his self-invented process for painting. "I have to think 20 moves ahead." The results of this strategic approach to making art, 'Luminous Paintings by Tom Bacher,' opens Friday in the downtown Aronoff Center for the Arts' Weston Art Gallery.  

Paintings by Jimi Jones (Review)

Pixel-based paintings defy you to ignore them

1 Comment · Wednesday, December 17, 2008
"I had a Eureka moment," Jimi Jones told an audience at a lecture last week for his current exhibition at downtown's Weston Art Gallery. The longtime active member of the Cincinnati arts scene had discovered he could incorporate pixels (the building blocks of computer graphics) into his paintings. Results of that breakthrough can be seen in the show's vibrant works.  

Supplemental Ornament (Review)

Althea Murphy-Price makes sculpture from hairdos

0 Comments · Wednesday, December 3, 2008
Althea Murphy-Price is fascinated by the everyday fashion show of our lives, where we all walk around projecting and revealing information about ourselves through the hairstyles we sport, what we wear and all the superficial details that make up our self-images.
