Thoroughly Modern was developed to begin where the chronology of Women Artists in the Age of Impressionism ends. The exhibition presents the work of several women artists and designers active in the early and mid-twentieth century (1900–60)
A series of photographic, gouache, and crayon studies of the worker murals created by German-born American artist and designer Winold Reiss for Union Terminal in the 1930s will be presented by the Weston Art Gallery in collaboration with Cincinnati Museum Center.
Inspired by the monumental mosaic “Worker Murals” created by Winold Reiss for Cincinnati’s Union Terminal opening in 1933, Matt Lynch (Cincinnati, OH) and Curtis Goldstein (Columbus, OH) combined their respective backgrounds in alternative applications for industrial materials and collage and mural painting to create Work/Surface, a suite of laser-cut Formica high-pressure laminate mosaics.
Returning to the Weston for his second solo exhibition, Tom Bacher (Cincinnati, OH) continues his exploration of large-scale paintings depicting city, landscape, and abstract imagery through his mastery of phosphorescent pigments combined with acrylic medium.
