We so often see art and design presented in clean, white galleries that we might not consider how these objects function in domestic, historical and more complex situations. There should be more instances of seeing contemporary artists working in historical spaces to create alternative art presentations that toy with context. Starting this Saturday and continuing through April 8, we are granted the opportunity to see how the Over-the-Rhine-based design studio VisuaLingual adds its recent work to the West End's historic Betts House in HOME WORK. Designers Maya Drodz and Michael Stout have created an ambitious collection of functional objects and prints that draw inspiration from the ornamental architecture found in Cincinnati. The Betts House is a great setting for such an exhibition, as it is an architectural rarity — the oldest brick house in Ohio still in its original site. Opening reception on Saturday is from 5-8 p.m.
