Today I went with part of my practicum class to the Weston Art Gallery. Dennis Harrington spoke to us about the gallery world and the procedures the gallery goes through to book shows and decide on artists. It's a long process, with a small staff, in a large, challenging space, so one can really appreciate that running a gallery is a good deal of work.

The work hanging there now is diverse. There is a large, whimsical/ ethereal site-specific installation involving drawings, sculpture and video by Elissa Morley called Vision: Things That Fly. There are large dystopian oil and watercolor paintings by Todd Reynolds in a series called Utopia. Diana Duncan Holmes has a body of abstract photographic work up called Movement, Chance, Light. All three are fascinating, all three deal with totally different subjects, concepts and media. If you are in downtown Cincinnati and have a moment, go check out the Weston. It's next door to the Aronoff, just pop in after Fiddler on the Roof.
