Call for Landscape Artists - Spirit of Place

The next art show at Christ Church Cathedral’s downtown Gallery South will celebrate artists’ special ability to share the beauty of the natural world with our busy, distracted society.

We are asking for your visual statements about scenes that are places of the heart for you — places that draw you back again and again. Or for art that demonstrates your ability to look at the seemingly ordinary and see colors, energy and beauty that most people would miss. Or, quite simply, for art that gave you great joy in the creation.

Gallery South is in a church, so naturally we are drawn to art that speaks in a spiritual way. But this is not a liturgical call. We’re looking for spirit as you see it, feel it and define it.

Gallery South is a big, beautifully lit and highly visible space at the corner of Sycamore Ave. and 4th St. We offer artists excellent exposure and no gallery fees. Hundreds of people come through the church every week for services, lectures, concerts and other gatherings. Scores of artists have shown work here since we started the program a year ago, and our sales are growing slowly but steadily.

  • The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, April 7, 2015
  • Spirit of Place will run from Mid-April to Mid-June, details TBD
  • Please email a list of offerings with title, size and medium, plus a jpg of each
  • Email to Gallery Curator, Mike Phillips, at nkymikephillips@gmail.com
  • All media accepted including photography
  • There are no size restrictions, but we can’t guarantee that glass, especially big glass, won’t break

Bang & Olufsen Gallery Exhibitions

B&O and CAC Dragonfly logos

On March 20, and every three months thereafter, Bang & Olufsen Cincinnati will be showcasing the art of our club, giving groups of artists the opportunity to exhibit at the Bang & Olufsen Gallery, located at 6 West Fourth street. This is a commission and fee free event. In addition, we will offer artists a vernissage with refreshments and hors d' oeuvres, also complimentary.

The first show will feature the arts of: Joe Pearce, Joe Stewart, Eileen Mc Conkey and Yvette Mazza. These artists were some of the first to show interest in the event. They will be contacted again separately with more detailed information.

There are over twenty more ready to go. June and September are the next dates and those artists will be notified after the first show starts so they have time to plan accordingly. If for any reason they have prior commitments, others will be chosen to take their place. The December show will be larger, so if you don't get into a four man show you may be called for the December show, albeit with less pieces for you to display.

It will be a pleasure to showcase the art of this great Club again and I hope you will all make a concerted effort to bring guests to promote our Club to the public.
