Weston Art Gallery, in the heart of downtown, a block away from the Contemporary Arts Center, has for 20 years provided the most prominent consistent venue for the work of area artists, if not the most welcoming space. 20 x 20 x 20, now on display at the gallery, celebrates the milestone by presenting 20 works by 20 individual artists or artistic collaborators whose work appeared there in solo exhibitions over the years.
Director Dennis Harrington, who has been with the Weston from the beginning, says the attention-attracting street-level gallery space always presents a challenge.
“It’s both a blessing and a curse, but for artists willing to take on the unusual space, it provides maximum exposure,” he says. Windowed walls on the Walnut Street and Seventh Street sides of the ground floor allow easy visual access for passersby.Read a review of the exhibit here .
20 X 20 X 20 continues at Weston Art Gallery through March 27. More info: cincinnatiarts.org/weston-art-gallery.
