  • Second Glances

    April 21- June 9, 2018
    Kennedy Gallery
    Opening reception: Sat., April 21, 6-9 pm

    Expressions of gender through fashion by 20 Cincinnati area artists

    Second Glances invites conversation and thought about how we express and define gender, both individually and in society. More than twenty local artists and fashion designers share their perspectives on how we use clothing and accessories to visually convey our own unique mixes of masculinity, femininity and neutrality.

    In the expression of gender, clothing is both intensely personal and woven full of social and cultural meaning. Our apparel choices are never “just clothes,” but signal complex and nuanced messages about self- and gender-identity, as well as our interpretations of societal norms and roles. The participating artists’ works encompass diverse topics in gender, including boundaries, icons, neutrality, ambiguity, cross dressing, transgender aesthetics, and sexual harassment.

    The concept for the exhibit was developed by Nancy Gamon, a local textile artist with a design studio at the KHAC Lindner Annex. Participating artists include: Brandon Andre Bowers, Ashley Marie Bowman, Emily Buddendeck, Da’Mon Butler, Susan Byrnes, Sara Caswell-Pearce, Isabella Cowgill, Nancy Gamon, Tina Gutierrez, Leah Hartmann, Robin Kusten Hartmann, Theresa Kramer, Pam Kravetz, Carla Lamb, Kaley Madden, Karen McGarry, Kim Pickard, Jenny Roesel Ustick, Karen Saunders, Sea Dax, Jenifer Sult, Stacey Vest, and Matthew Zory. Curated by Nancy Gamon, this exhibit will include a companion gift shop and boutique area featuring a large selection of additional clothing, accessories, jewelry, and small framed works.

    An intimate encounter with Nature’s mysteries by three artists: William Linthicum, Angela Mascolino and John Weller. Working in different media (watercolor, photography and pastel), the artists present images that reveal their personal relationships with the environment. Varying viewpoints, microscopic and telescopic, will give viewers an exuberant visual anthology to explore. A special section of the exhibition will feature the same location interpreted by each artist.

  • We are the Other: Wing Young Huie

    September 22 – November 10, 2018
    Kennedy Gallery
    Opening reception: Sat., September 29, 6-9 pm
    Lecture and workshop: Sun., September 30, 2-4 pm

    A featured exhibition of the 2018 FotoFocus Biennial

    For over 30 years, celebrated photographer Wing Young Huie has captured the complex cultural realities of American society. His work has been shown in international museums, over half a million people have viewed his traveling exhibition in China, and in Minnesota storefront windows.  His most well known projects, Lake Street USA and University Avenue Project, transformed Twin Cities thoroughfares into six-mile photo galleries that reflected the everyday lives of thousands of people.

    Although much of his work has been focused on his home state of Minnesota, it includes photographs from around the United States and China. Almost all the thousands of people he’s photographed are strangers he meets in all kinds of ways, often on the street. Many he interviews and displays their words with their photos.

    When Wing started as a documentary photographer, the goal was to make what he thought was a good photograph—the photograph as an aesthetic object. Then he started to think that the interactive process was as important, if not more important, than the resulting photograph. A photograph, no matter how good, is still just a surface description.

    How then to create an image that goes below the surface to reveal the relational aspects of photographing strangers? He has employed a variety of concepts, expanding his documentary instincts: having people write revealing statements on chalkboards; introducing neighbors who don’t know each other to each other and photographing them collectively in each other’s places; and wearing the clothes of Chinese men whose lives he could’ve had, blurring the boundary between photographer and subject.

    In this retrospective show at Kennedy Heights Arts Center, his first exhibition in Ohio, Huie will exhibit pieces from his University Avenue Project, Lake Street USA, Chinese-ness and I am the Other series, as well as some of his current work.

Exhibition Proposals for the 2019 Season

 

We are currently accepting exhibition proposals for our 2019 season.

Kennedy Heights Arts Center’s mission is to enliven our surrounding community through arts and cultural experiences that embrace diversity, foster creativity and build community. KHAC strives to stimulate interaction and dialogue and create social change through the practice of art. We invite artists and curators to partner with us in this mission through the presentation of diverse visual art exhibitions.

Proposals may be submitted for solo or group exhibitions or curatorial projects in all media. We are also receptive to hosting a variety of events in conjunction with exhibitions (workshops, discussions, performances, etc.)

Kennedy Heights Arts Center offers two beautiful exhibition spaces. The Kennedy Gallery in our historic mansion contains over 2,000 square feet of gallery space, featuring hardwood floors, historic architecture and contemporary museum track lighting. KHAC hosts seven exhibitions annually; each typically contains 40 to 50 individual pieces, depending on size and type.

The Lindner Gallery in our Carl, Robert, Richard and Dorothy Lindner Annex is 700 square feet with hardwood floors and high ceilings, adjacent to our event center. Work in this gallery must be two-dimensional. Each show typically includes 15-25 pieces, depending on size.

Deadline for submissions:  May 31, 2018

Proposals will be selected by a jury of professional artists and curators based on quality of the work; diversity of approach, media and style for the year; and how the show contributes to KHAC’s mission. Artists will be notified by September 1, 2018.

Submission guidelines:
Please send a completed Exhibition Proposal Form (see link below to download), artist statement, bio/CV and up to 15 images of your work in jpeg format, 300 dpi. Please label images “artist name_title”. Proposals and images may be sent to: curator@kennedyarts.org
