Julie Mitchell Exhibition


The work in this show is from two distinct bodies of work.  The first is a series of recent watercolor and acrylic paintings.  They depict common weeds and grasses, stylized in varying degrees.  My intention is to explore and celebrate the complexity of ordinary botanical lives that surround us.

The second body of work, from a few years ago, is a group of collages that evolved out of a series of acrylic paintings.  The paintings were compositions of figures moving about in urban settings.  The collages are composed of cut-up pieces of photocopies of the original paintings with added layers of paint and painted cut paper.


Julie is a member of St. John's and teaches part-time at the University of Cincinnati's Bue Ash College.  She earned her MFA at East Carolina University.  In 2012 she was awarded a Summerfair Aid to Individual Artist's Grant.  Her works are in numerous private and public collections.

Continuing through the month of September.

Molly Hickey

I have always been fascinated with the idea of dreaming, and the individual perceptions of a dream.  While searching for inspiration for this collection, I turned to the dream-maker himself - Gustav Klimt.  Stepping into each of his paintings is certainly an experience.  No matter how many times I see his works, I am awestruck by his use of golden patterns, swirling shapes, and how gracefully the human frame is intertwined within them.  The idea of taking what exists within the mind and placing it on a canvas is an incredibly daunting task, but seems effortlessly illustrated under his brush.

Each piece in my collection inhaled Klimt's aesthetic and exhaled my interpretation of a dream .... No matter how a dream is perceived, it can become art.

"Whoever wants to know something about me - as an artist which alone is significant - they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognize what I am and what I want." 

- Gustav Klimt (1862-1918)

As a violinist Molly serves as concertmaster for the Miami University Symphony Orchestra and Morpheus Chamber Ensemble.  Currently, she is acting as the proprietor for Fontainebleau Strings, as well as serving as the Marketing Intern at the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.l

 David Walker - May, June 2014

The artist statement: “I believe that the making of art is primarily for the benefit of the artist.  If what the artist has created communicates messages and feeling to others, then it is because of the universality of the human experience that is speaking through the work of art.  I do not believe that art has to be lasting in physical terms to be great art, much less good art.  If a creative effort is able to move, change, and teach the human spirit to grow into its full conscious potential, then I think the purpose of art has been fulfilled.”

Questions or comments: Elizabeth Wilson: 961-1938



Photography is understandably associated with reality. To all appearances, photographs seem to provide us with concrete evidence of what is real. But there are gaps between what the viewer sees in an image and what the viewer interprets from an image. This exhibition is exploring those gaps.

A photograph has qualities of its own -- a reality of its own. It divulges some things; disguises others. This exhibit invites you to stroll along the edge of ambiguity.

There is a story here. Transcend the visual by using the visual. Upset the normal interpretive process by letting go of the objects. Find your own metaphor.

Kathy Silbernagel, Photographer

All photographs are for sale, framed as in the exhibition, for $150.00. Please contact the artist at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 513-550-9998.




During January, graphics created by Richard Zeller will be on display.  Richard lives in Charlotte and happens to be Barbara Haddden's youngest brother.  He is intellectually challenged but finds great opportunities for expressing his artistic ideas in pen, colored pencil, and markers.  Look for "Tango", "Mazurka", and "Cha-Cha-Cha".  They are imaginative and fun.

Artist Statement:

I taught Geography at the university of Cincinnati from 1953 to 1988, bringing to my

students my interest in a geographic approach to history, illustrating my lectures

with maps, some of which I drew myself. The maps shown in this exhibit were

colored with watercolors. I was not adept with oil colors and just used my watercolors.   I applied them so that the results looked as though they'd been printed.  I was so immersed in teaching that it never dawned on me that this use of watercolors was rather unique.

Brief Bio:

I was born in New York City, and as an undergraduate I attended CCNY where I was granted my degree in absentia, as I’d been drafted into the U.S.Army during my Senior year. It was at CCNY that I discovered my cartographic enjoyment could lead to a profession. Therefore, after the war, I earned a Master's (in Geography) at Columbia University, and then a Ph.D. at Syracuse University in Geography. While there my G.I. Bill funding ran out. A job opened up in Cincinnati at that time, and I've been in Cincinnati ever since. Leaving Syracuse, I married and since have sired three sons of whom I am quite pleased. They've done well.

Larry Wolf: The Art of Cartography continues until November 27, 2013.


Hours: 9 AM until 2 PM, Sunday through Thursday.

The Brayer (roller) technique as i use it started as an experimental project in a college print class.  Results which can be achieved are still fascinating to me to this day.  The image is created on a smooth nonporous surface such as glass using a palette knife.  Then roll the brayer over the image, lifting the ink onto the brayer, then transfer the image on the brayer to paper, linen, canvas, etc.

I hope you enjoy this exhibition.

Dorothy Weil is a long-time Cincinnati artist and writer. She has exhibited widely in local exhibitions and has had one person shows at the YWCA, St. John's Unitarian church, First Unitarian church, and Kaldi's Coffee House. She works in her studio in the Essex artist studios on McMillan Avenue in East Walnut Hills and is now showing photos of the Ohio River with its many changes of weather, color, and mood. The daughter of a steamboat captain and sister of a towboat pilot, who has lived on the river, Weil has a special love for the Ohio.

Weil has written art reviews for Cincinnati Magazine, and published numerous features for magazines and newspapers including Atlantic Monthly and The New York Times. Her book publications include a comic novel, Continuing Education, the movie and tv rights to which were bought by Disney Productions; a memoir, The River Home, about her family's life on the Ohio River; and a mystery, River Rats. Weil's essays and poetry appear often in the Eno River Literary Journal, published by the Durham N.C. UU Fellowship. With co-producer Jane Goetzman at TV IMAGE, INC., a non-profit video production team, Weil has created many documentaries about local art and culture.

The current show at St. John's are studies of people (and one dog) with a certain flair or attitude. I like to bring out the character of my subjects and also what is aesthetically pleasing about their colors and forms. I've always used a variety of mediums, even computer as in the small poem-pictures.

Adrienne Varady was born in Brooklyn, New York and studied with Jimmy Ernst and Ad Reinhart, and Harry Holtzman at Brooklyn College. She has lived in Cincinnati since 1971. Varady’s work includes ceramics, works on paper, paintings in oils and acrylics, etching and lithography. She has traveled extensively throughout Europe.


The landscapesall unpeopledare inspired by her European visits. They employ an expressive use of color to explore the special light specific to a particular place and time of day. Her portraits are amalgamations of faces and types, but occasionally they are individuals caught unawares, which allows her to explore the subject more objectively.


Varady held the position of visual resources librarian of the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Art, Architecture, and Panning from 1985 through 2002. She holds a Master of Arts Degree in Art History from the University of Cincinnati and a Master of Library Science Degree from Drexel University, Philadelphia.

Artist Statement

The fact of the matter is that the advance of technology has outpaced our representative democracy. Whether we like it or not, our world is digitizing at an alarming rate. If our social contract is unable to keep up with our technology (and the growth of culture alongside of technology), this experiment in Democracy will simply burst out of its own bindings. The US Constitution was not designed in anticipation of Anonymous or drone surveillance programs.


As journalist Robert McChesney writes in The Death and Life of American Journalism: “American radicalism is not romantic - it is about figuring out what needs to be done and doing it.”  From the perspective of an Occupier, our problems can only be solved from a grassroots level with a reorganization of our basic socio political units: the household and the small business. Inspired by the spirit of solidarity found across our nations’ occupations, cooperative and non-profit organizations, as well as new models of communal living, have been popping up across the country. Occupy was the melting pot in which the next generation of activism, the digital generation, will be rooted. These will continue to grow, but at this moment in our nations history we are presented with a very interesting option: do we find our representative system, defined by the US Constitution in 1787 and revisited via the amendment process, to be sufficient in today's digitized world?


I find my answer to that question to be a resounding “no”. We the People created this government, and We the People have the right to build off of this cornerstone of American Society with new structure. The concept I’ve visualized is a cafe with its own dedicated social network. Via this network aspects of our digital, social, political, and economic lives are incorporated into a single microcosm, creating the highest possible degree of potential between ideas. The physical environment of the cafe would stimulate interactions across the digital network and vice versa. Located on or around a college campus, the cafe would engage the first generations of digital Americans in an academic environment, providing a space for collaboration between students and professors.

Everyone is welcome in the cafe and anyone could read the forums online, but membership would be required to make posts. In this environment, our digital, social, and physical, and economic lives intersect. Just like at Occupy, the medium of the community forum will build solidarity and community at the base level of society. Members find solidarity with their ideas via forums. Together, the userbase works to build consensus on ideals; a database of social identity being mapped with every click.

Artist Statement - Kathy Silbernagel - November, December 2012

Most of my work is processed in my studio in northern Michigan.  The area is a constant source of inspiration.  But I love photographing cities.  And people (especially the little ones). And animals. And plants.  I have fully embraced the digital technology and have recovered from any nostalgic rumination about film.  I truly believe that digital is better.

All my photos are on sale, framed or unframed, at a price of $150 framed and $100 unframed.  A full $50 of each sale will be given to St. John's, so think of it as a fundraiser if you like.

In and Around the Neighborhood

Exhibition Statement

Sherlock Holmes is very popular these days, and his detective skills are amazing. Solving mysteries using his skill of deductive reasoning, his most renowned gift, allows him to see into himself and others and the world around him. If he was only able to visit In and Around the Neighborhood and deduce the photographer’s obvious likes and dislikes as well as his hidden personal preferences and quirky characteristics – we could only imagine what Holmes would discover.


Surely Holmes would conclude that the photographs are loosely divided into three categories. First, he would discover the photographer’s love for the ordinary, comfortable images taken within his own neighborhood, noticing that almost all of the photos were shot within a five mile radius of his home.


Second, the photographer has a strong interest in the abstract, whether it be an interesting architectural detail, finding relationships between incongruous images or choosing clever discoveries such as lines, shadows, light and tension, all of which are embedded in his work.


Third, the photographer enjoys the endless beauty of the world around him, in the people who share this world, people who think deeply and love deeply, people who are passionately involved with life and living. He also finds the animal kingdom equally as beautiful and worthy of human respect. Lastly, the seasons of nature are celebrated and will never find itself diminished in the photographer’s eye. 

Sherlock Holmes invites you to join him as you view this exhibit.

 Deduce what YOU see!

   APRIL, 2012

As a child, Jane Alden Stevens owned a Brownie Instamatic, which was her constant companion. One day, a roll of film she had sent to Kodak for processing came back in the mail. Inside the package she found one of her pictures inserted in a cardboard holder that framed the image nicely. On the front, someone had written, “We thought this picture was so good that it deserved to be framed!”*

The effect on the young artist was electrifying. She felt that her photograph had spoken to someone, that she was part of something far bigger than the small world she inhabited. With that, her love of photography was born.

A few years later, as a teenager vacationing on the East Coast, she found herself gazing out the window. Within her scope she saw sand dunes, beach grass waving gently in the breeze, and the gray Atlantic Ocean ebbing and flowing in the distance. It was sundown, and the sky glowed with a subtle blend of blues and pinks. Seagulls were calling; the air smelled like wild roses and salt and seaweed. Without thinking, she reached for her camera, ready to record that magical moment. Then she paused… and slowly put the camera down.

It dawned on her that no photograph could replicate the experience of being in that place at that very moment. This realization caused her to reconsider what she photographed and how, and it continues to influence her approach to the medium to this day.


Artist’s Statement

The history of nations. The history of an era. The history of a process. One’s personal history. Many different histories are woven throughout the fabric of our lives, all of them rich with stories about the present and the past.

 I approach photography from this perspective. What loose narrative can I relate about a person? An event? A way of doing things? And how can I make a photograph that implies as much about its subject as it does describe it?

 It is this challenge that plunges me into a constant state of excitement (leavened with a touch of panic) while working on a project. It’s both the agony and the ecstasy: I am fully committed, yet unsure of the outcome. I am intensely focused, but have more questions about what I am doing than I can possibly hope to answer. I liken it to being in the “zone” that athletes describe. I am at once both conscious and unconscious of what I am doing, completely engaged with the work while simultaneously looking at it from afar.

Today, Jane Alden Stevens is a highly respected photographic artist and educator. She won Individual Artist grants from the Ohio Arts Council in 1990 and 2002. Solo exhibitions of her work have been mounted at the ARC Gallery in Chicago, the Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art in Ithaca, NY, and the Pittsburgh Filmmakers Gallery. She has exhibited extensively abroad, including in Finland, Ukraine, Belgium, Germany, and Brazil. Stevens’s photographs are included in the permanent collections of the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film in Rochester, NY, the Cincinnati Art Museum, and the Museu da Imagem e do Som in São Paulo, Brazil. She is currently a Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Cincinnati.



 February-March, 2012:   Anna Daigle

 I grew up in Concord, MA surrounded by history and the beauty of Walden Pond. Creative from an early age, I began to take pictures in second grade with my Fisher Price film camera. I dreamed of becoming an artist when I grew up, but after discovering chemistry, decided that art would be a lasting passion to balance my love of science. I find much of my inspiration in the beauty of nature and it continues to be my favorite subject. I have also dabbled in wedding photography and portraits, capturing small moments that are often missed but become some of the most wonderful memories. Enjoy!

 Artist's Statement

I was born in the Ukraine.  I owe my love of nature, travel, photography, music, and art to my parents.  After receiving a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering, I immigrated to the United States in 1981 and studied by correspondence courses at the New & York Institute of Photography.  

In 1995 I decided to attend classes at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and took classes with Greg Albert, Ken Landon Buck, Carin Hebensteit, and Bob Hebensteit. 

In 1999 I retired from my engineering career and started my painting career, studying with James D, Werline and David Mueller.  I am a signature member of the Cincinnati Art Club and have exhibited in numerous local exhibitions.

in light imagery

by Michelle Wertmuth

I discovered photography in high school and never looked back.

 Early in the morning as the sun begins to rise, I can usually be found out in the woods behind our house stalking dew drops. 

I love to photograph the little details that most people do not see, such as the detail of a flowwer petal or a spider web in the grass covered in the morning dew.  My macro subjects are usually no larger than 1/4 of an inch.

To view some of my most recent work, please visit my blog: www.InLightImagery.com

Spirit in the Natural World   by Artist Lisa Britton 

In thinking about my past work, special emphasis has been on creation of silver gelatin prints, and yet, my present habits center around the digital world, as most of the rest of photographers are involved with now. 

The prints in this exhibit are dear to me, because they involve a different kind of investigation and pure patience which the darkroom demands.  It is almost an act of meditation to make a print, requiring one's constant awareness and attention to detail...

These  particular scenes were "ah ha" moments for me when time stood still.  I hope they can reflect some of the peace and stillness in you and reveal some of the magic I admired in seeing them.  ________________________________________________________

Lisa Britton is a fine art photographer with a Master's degree from the University of Cincinnati.  She currently teaches classes at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and works as a freelance photographer. Her work has been shown  nationally and internationally. 


Botanicals by Artist Kent Krugh

I grew up on my grandfather's farm in norther Ohio where the cycle of life was more than an intellectual affirmation of nature .... Plants and the nuture of them were modeled early for me.  So photographing them seems the natural thing to do.  All photographs [in the exhibition] are printed on acid and lignin free cotton-rag paper with carbon pigments and are archival.

Kent Krugh is a gardener and a lifelong photographer. He works as a Medical Physicist in a Cancer Center and by nature is inquisitive and experimental. These two traits drive his fascination with the natural world and his eagerness to experiment in photographic technique. The motivation for much of his photography is spiritual; an attempt to reflect the beauty, mystery, and glory of creation.

This photography exhibition continues until July 31, 2011

Artist Ric Hine notes: " ... the ever 'changingness' of the World Around me ..."

About the Art & Artist:

I am by trade a freelance director of photography, cameraman and most recently, visual artist.  With over thirty years film and video experience I have shot documentaries, commercials, sporting events and feature segments for every major network, and managed to pick up a few awards along the way.  I make my living capturing images. 

These exhibited images evolved from an epiphany I had while sitting at my desk.  After years of looking through my glass block windows I unexpectedly “saw” the dynamically changing spectacle they displayed.  Seasons, weather, time of day and perspective all produced a frequently shifting image images that will never reoccur exactly the same.  In a rare moment of philosophical “Duh!”, I realized I spent my time so focused on past or present events I would miss entire days of wondrous things in front of me.   The images in this exhibit are the result of appreciating what is actually around me.

All these images begin life as a digital photograph of ordinary things.  Glass block images, shadows, shapes, textures, brief moments that catch my eye.  The images’ sense of familiarity comes from everyday scenes we all “see” but seldom notice. 

Given my profession in this digital age, it is no surprise that I would incorporate the use of digital graphic technology to artistically interpret the various abstractions I’ve captured.  I don’t generate I augment the naturally occurring abstractions around me.  These still images are a reminder of the ever “changing-ness” of the world around me.  But most important, they serve as a reminder to be actively present in the moment.  I have found life more enjoyable when I pray for wonder and then manage to be in attendance to see it.
