"DOUG MCGLUMPHY: REGULAR GUY MONUMENTS
Using contemporary and salvaged architectural materials, Doug McGlumphy (Stone Creek, OH) creates large-scale sculptures that pay tribute to the working class. McGlumphy chooses the form of traditional monuments to begin his tribute to the “regular guy.” Rendering the monoliths in materials found in the architecture and daily lives of the working class, the idea of the ordinary becomes connected with the symbolism of the monumental.  
GALLERY TALK: DOUG MCGLUMPHY
Please join us for an informal and informative Gallery Talk with Doug McGlumphy, artist, on December 2nd at 2PM.
Admission is free and open to the public. Light refreshments provided.

FRANK HERRMANN: NEW WORKS
In his first solo exhibition at the Weston Art Gallery, Guggenheim Fellowship award winning painter Frank Herrmann (Cincinnati, OH) presents a new series of large-scale acrylic paintings and watercolor works on paper that explores mysterious bulbous forms suspended in primordial landscapes. Herrmann’s evocative paintings suggest an emerging culture evolving in a recurrent cycle of growth, regeneration, and decay. These multi-layered paintings reflect the artist’s aggressive persistence in pushing these expressions toward a final resolution, one that requires time and contemplation, yielding new discoveries upon each viewing.

SANCTUARY: KATHY Y. WILSON LIVING IN A COLORED MUSEUM
Kathy Y. Wilson (Cincinnati, OH) is an acclaimed writer, performer, educator, and art collector largely known for her provocative column “Your Negro Tour Guide” (published for eight years from 2000-05 and again in 2013-16 in the Cincinnati alternative newspaper CityBeat) and later adapted as a book and one-woman play. Within her East Walnut Hills apartment Wilson has amassed a museum-like collection of locally made art, racist objects, and antebellum era collectibles alongside family photographs, and other ephemera, displayed as a densely packed installation serving as a personal scrapbook of social commentary and inspiration for her writing. In Sanctuary, independent curator Emily Buddendeck (Cincinnati, OH) borrows extensively from this highly personal assemblage to recreate a sense of Wilson’s home environment in an installation in the Weston’s East Gallery, revealing the depth of character of this exceptionally talented writer and performer. 

Reading by Kathy Y. Wilson and Lecture by Dr. David Pilgrim: Sunday, January 14 at 1-3 p.m. (Ticketed event in the Fifth Third Bank Theater followed by a free Sunday Salon with the speakers in the Sanctuary exhibition in the Weston Art Gallery)"
