CBAS Members in Exhibition

Entry to Exhibition
This afternoon your blogger headed out to Studio San Giuseppe at the College of Mount St. Joseph to view the current exhibition CONFLUENCE: Partnership and Creativity that opened on February 24. What a treat! Pam Korte, guest curator and faculty member at the Mount, has brought together the work of nine creative couples (spouses, significant others and working partners). She encouraged the artists to think about how creativity has been affected over time by their close relationships. Consequently, the artists' statements make for very interesting reading.

David's Letterpress & Terri's Ceramics  

Two artists have strong CBAS ties. David Umbenhour, a graphic designer and print maker who also teaches letterpress at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, serves on the CBAS Board of Trustees. You can admire David's broadsides nearby his wife Terri Kern's sculptural ceramics. Be sure to look inside of one of Terri's nests that is full of her tiny ceramic books.

Peg's Miss Moosaic & Stuart's Enamels
All CBAS members know Margaret (Peg) Rhein because she is our email communicator, sending us links to wonderful sites of interest as well as notifying us of all important CBAS events and local happenings. Peg's large paper collages are complemented with two other mosaic pieces. Her work is shown with that of her husband, goldsmith Stuart Golder. Stuart is showing his new plique-à-jour work—jewelry and cups. This intricate and difficult enameling technique is yielding gorgeous results.

If you go to see the show (and I recommend you do), you will also find two other artists who have books for you to enjoy. Cynthia Gregory's Untitled (Book Stack) and Christian Schmit's miniature bookshelf, part of his Puzzle Suite, will attract your attention. The work of other couples includes ceramics, metal, photography, painting and mixed media pieces. The exhibition runs through March 26; gallery hours are 10-5, Monday-Friday and 1-5, Saturday and Sunday.
