TheStudio Collection Holiday Sale has become a traditional shopping stop for those looking to own or give locally created artwork. Jane Durrell gets the details of this year’s event from organizer and artist Terri Kern and participating artist Sara Caswell-Pearce. This year’s sale happens on November 22 at the Harmony Lodge in Spring Grove Village.
Jane Durrell has a profile of local artist and Art Academy of Cincinnati teacher Constance McClure. She reflects on the changes she’s seen in art and students over the course of her career, and talks about the kind of creative work she finds challenging now.
Jane Durrell sits down for an interview with local artist and community stalwart Jan Brown Checco. Beyond her efforts as a working artist, she is involved with many community efforts including the City of Cincinnati’s arts allocation committee, the recent Big Idea effort of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation and various Sister City projects.
xChange Cincinnati is an event that celebrates local artists, activists and entrepreneurs who use their creativity as a vehicle for social change. The one-night-only event is presented by Theatre for The Free People and is the culmination of the work that was created in the Artist as Activist/Cincinnati xChange Program at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center.
According to local poet Hannah Ramlo, who is curating the event, the program examines the artist as an environmental, ethical, humanistic and social activist. The mission is to initiate conversations about the impact of art on society, and to raise awareness of the use of art as a tool for liberation.
