Elizabeth Nourse was a Mt. Healthy-born painter who spent most of her life and career in France. Jane Durrell has a review ofRites of Passage featuring one of Nourse’s most acclaimed works, The First Communion, and the accompanying exhibition of fourteen of her other works, now on display at the Cincinnati Art Museum.
For the first time in its existence, Cincinnati’s Manifest Gallery has engaged an artist-in residence. Painter Tyler Wilkinson has been working with the gallery for some time, so he joins our Jane Durrell in the studio to discuss the experience so far, the type of work he’s been doing, and what he hopes to accomplish before his residency is completed.
