Christian Schmit and Cynthia Gregory present New Work at The Flats Gallery: a College of Mount St. Joseph Urban Arts Partnership, at 3028 Price Avenue in Price Hill. The show runs until Saturday, March 1st with a closing reception Saturday, March 1st from 2-4pm.
Cynthia Gregory and Christian Schmit were colleagues in UC’s graduate fine arts program and have continued with collaborations since completing their MFAs. Existing familiarity with their work enabled them to mount engaging local exhibitions that complimented their use of realistic, illustrative styles, and the similar use of traditional (graphite, ink, gouache) and non-traditional (salvaged wood, insulation foam, cereal box cardboard) media as building materials. Gregory points out, “Common themes to both of our art include implied narrative told through juxtaposed, enigmatic yet everyday objects, and an exploration toward how these objects act as metaphoric ‘containers’ for memory, experience, and unspoken mysteries rooted in human experience.” Exhibited art works include 2D drawings and 3D sculptures that have expanded on their MFA themes, Schmit’s A Memory Rocket and Gregory’s The Poet’s Table.
Christian will be conducting an accompanying workshop titled Memory Capture: Exploring the Intensive Now on Saturday, February 8th from 2-4pm at the Flats Gallery. In this workshop, participants will create small objects to contain memories out of recycled materials. All materials are provided and the workshop is free. Email Christian with questions: email@example.com.
