Covington is fast becoming another go-to destination for artist studios, gallery shows, and more importantly, an organization that provides support services to local artists. Jane Durrell welcomes Natalie Bowers and Cate Yellig from the Artisans Enterprise Center to talk about the center’s mission and upcoming activities.
The incredible Lloyd Library and Museum in downtown Cincinnati has a fascinating exhibit running until the end of February. Titled What Makes the Reindeer Fly, it is a book and art exhibit that explores the role of "magic," or hallucinogenic, mushrooms both scientifically and culturally from around the globe and how they have a greater presence culturally then you ever imagined possible. Curator Anna Heran talks about this fun and informative exhibit in an interview with Lee Hay.
The Cincinnati Art Museum is currently featuring the color lithographs and posters of Henri Toulouse-Latrec, a man destined to live in the aristocracy until an accident forced him to become part of the working class, so he used his artistic skills and lived a bohemian lifestyle, scandalous for a man with such heritage. Jane Durrell learns more about this man, his life, and this exhibition from the Art Museum’s Kristin Spangenberg.
