Appearances @ 1305


Opening Final Friday, August 25th is "Appearances," watercolors by Carson Wassermann. The show will run through Sunday, September 24th, with a closing reception that evening from 7-9 pm.

Gallery hours beginning August 26th: Tues-Sat 11-3 & September 10th, 12-5 for SSOM

Carson's work is a perfect way to end the summer, while reminding us of why we look forward to this season every year. Her lush use of the watercolor medium brings to life fresh faces enrobed in color and bathed by light. Carson often paints from her travels in South America, Mexico, and elsewhere, allowing the viewer to come into contact with people and places obviously personal to her. Carson works as a bilingual social worker in Cincinnati, and her interest and devotion toward individuals is reflected in the way people are portrayed in her work. The appearances are personal and magnetic. Each piece is so delicately alive through the immediacy of the watercolor, and at the same time bright and refreshing. Come check out these pieces Final Friday, and talk to Carson about their creation! While you're here enjoy homemade snacks and refreshments.

Also, if you participated in or wanted to participate in "Pages: A Public Drawing Experiment" last month but have not returned your entries the deadline has been extended. Due to a lack of entries returned by Second Sunday, August 13th, the new deadline is Second Sunday, September 10th. You can still purchase pages for $1/page starting Final Friday, August 25th. Because the primary objective of this experiment was to print a book as a demographic drawing experiment, it is essential that enough data be collected before that is possible. I apologize to those, and there were a few (you know who you are, and thanks), who brought their finished entries back on time. Know that if we get enough entries copies of the book will be my thanks for your timely participation. There will be no closing or awards reception August 20th.

I hope I see you all Final Friday!
