Selections from artist Constance McClure’s long-term project The Verona Reconstruction Team, a record of people living and working in her Walnut Hills neighborhood, will be on view briefly in a special showing from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday at the Verona Historic Residences. McClure, who lives in the Verona, a historic apartment building undergoing extensive renovation as part of condo conversion, has used a variety of media to record the workers in brick and stone, electricians, plumbers, carpenters and others during the two years the project has been underway. Works in The Verona Reconstruction Team include pencil drawings, silverpoint, wash drawings, oil paintings and frescos. McClure sees her subject, people at work, as “a continuation of the sharing of humanity as we’ve experienced it throughout the history of art." McClure’s own superbly crafted art makes her an appreciative judge of others who take pride in their work. In addition to the art, the event will include refreshments, live music and tours of renovated Verona apartments. Get venue details and find nearby bars and restaurants here.
