Phyllis Weston Gallery is closing after the December death of the grande dame of Cincinnati’s visual art, Phyllis Weston. Pop-up shows will round out the last month of business. First is a group exhibit featuring digitally manipulated photos of long-ago street scenes from gallery director Courtney Huber, feminist Rococo-style drawings by Colleen Kelsey of Dayton and ethereal prints by Cincinnatian Emily Sites Karns. Former artist-in-residence Max Unterhaslberger, now living in Chicago, will return April 14 with a series exploring color. The final exhibit, a one-night event tentatively scheduled for April 28, will showcase world-renowned wildlife painter John Ruthven and bring Weston’s legacy full circle. In the 1960s, Weston gave Ruthven — who still works in his Georgetown, Ohio, studio at age 91 — his first major show.


On view through April 2. Free. Phyllis Weston Gallery, 2005 ½ Madison Road, O’Bryonville, 513-321-5200, phyllisweston.com
