GENUINE STATIC: April 28 – June 30

GENUINE STATIC is a multimedia exhibition that holds space for the vulnerability we may experience throughout salient moments in our lives. How can we recognize and cherish overbearing shifts? And how do we release and build from these sensations, while still holding significance for them? This series will touch on intentional and unintentional ways of creation, through paint, and other multiple mediums of art. We can accept and build from mistakes and challenges. We can learn to freely express ourselves as the genuine, static beings that we recognize ourselves to be.

About the Artist-in-Residence: Cierra Fogle is an experimental artist that uses multiple mediums to communicate her passion for life and creative freedom within her body and art.

ArtWorks is thrilled to announce our second visiting artist in residence, Amelia Key. Over the month of July, Key will lead eight teen and young adult Artists as they explore a range of sculptural solutions that transform and elevate the mundane objects that pervade our daily life, creating a dialogue about plastic waste, the environment, and the relationship between materials and concept. They will gain experience showcasing their finished pieces in an exhibition at the ArtWorks V² Gallery in the summer and have the opportunity to speak publicly about their work.

 

Parts or Pieces: September 29 – November 17

ArtWorks is elated to work with Cincinnati-based Performance Artist and Curator Noel Maghathe. Teen and young adult Artists will meet for three hours twice a week to develop their practice on performance art. Teen and young adult Artists will learn the basic history of Performance Art through a diverse range of contemporary performers. Teen and young adult Artists will learn to speak conceptually about their work and build an understanding of why they are creating it, a vision of the purpose, and the reasoning behind their work. They will also gain experience learning how to display performance work and get an understanding of curating work in a space.

Future Heirlooms: September 29 – November 17

ArtWorks is thrilled to announce our fifth, and final, artist in residency for 2023, led by Sarah Rodriguez. During the program, the group will meet twice a week to explore new techniques, create artwork based around our theme of future heirlooms, discuss the artwork, write artist statements, and engage with arts professionals. The group will focus on work that reflects artists as storytellers, considering concepts such as, what is an heirloom, and how our identity and interpersonal relationships manifest in the significance of an object. Using a variety of techniques, artists will create pieces that present their unique perspectives as they work through the questions above.

They will gain experience showcasing their finished pieces in an exhibition at the ArtWorks V² Gallery in the winter and have the opportunity to speak publicly about their work.
