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.

Stuart Fink’s Shape to Shape at Brazee Street Studios’ gallery One One bristles with energy, mostly dispenses with narrative (who needs it?) and includes paintings as well as sculpture. Best known as a sculptor, Fink studied to be a painter and never really gave it up.

Where The Vintage Things Are

Emily Buddendeck’s retail shop/exhibition space is itself a quirky work of art

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 18, 2012
NVISION, Emily Buddendeck's quirky venture at 4577 Hamilton Ave. in Northside, has grown steadily during its four-and-a-half years of existence. “I opened on Leap Day of Leap year, Feb. 29, 2008. The day seemed appropriate because the shop was even more of a leap during a recession, but it really merged the various things I had been doing, career-wise,” she says.   

Bringing The Outdoors In

In a space dedicated to interiors, the expansive second floor of Bromwell’s downtown, Celene Hawkins brings together several of the city’s most accomplished artists with works “in which nature is found, observed and re-made in elegant and subtle ways,” for Flora and Fauna. So, the outside comes into these high-ceilinged, fireplace-studded display rooms to mutual benefit.   

King Records Museum Would Draw Tourists

0 Comments · Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Cincinnati’s King Records has an important enough history to merit a museum, especially since the original building is still standing at 1540 Brewster Ave. in Evanston.

The most active supporters of a King Museum want a location in Evanston’s business district as an economic development tool.
