BIG ART : Giving Wings & Wheels to Imagination held in the Main Gallery of The Barn | Woman’s Art Club Cultural Center from October 3 to October 11, was the brain child of Club Member Bobbi Thies and was designed and organized by Big Art Collaborative (BAC), consisting of Bobbi Thies and other club members: Bev Seibert, Judith Affatato, Kathryn Al-Lamadani, Bonita Goldberg, Claire Long, Gail Lundgren, Angie Meehan, and Marie Smith.

The goal of this exhibition was to showcase works that are usually excluded from other Woman’s Art Club exhibitions due to size. Instead of maximum dimensions, this exhibit required large minimum dimensions. Acceptance was competitive. Marie Rigney, art consultant at Eisele Gallery of Fine Art, curated the exhibition.

Works chosen for the exhibition were by Nancy Achberger, Dawn Boehmer, Lauren Bosse, Deirdre Dyson, Catherine Fishbaugh, Sheila Fleischer, Bonita Goldberg, Martha Howard, Ann Kromer, Hima Lanka, Ivanka Lempitskiy, Carol MacConnell, Elizabeth Stoehr, Doris Uhlman, Trish Weeks, Kathleen Wilkins, McCrystle Wood & Melissa Lusk, and Ruthe Wyman

In celebration of our 125th year, ArtWorks and the Woman’s Art Club of Cincinnati partnered to celebrate and commemorate the Club’s 125th year with the creation of Emerge. Designed by local artist Tina Westerkamp, Emerge lives on 12th Street, between Race & Vine in OTR.

Many thanks to the members of the Woman’s Art Club for their support of this project and to local teaching artists Paul Loehle and Bailey Dowlin who worked with the team of eight local youth apprentices to paint install this beautiful mural.

A dedication ceremony took place on Wednesday, October 17th — Click Here to enjoy a short video about the mural.

The Barn  |  The Woman’s Art Club Cultural Center is an Ohio Cultural Arts Center in Mariemont, Ohio. The Woman’s Art Club does not own or run it  — the Club has meetings there, the Club rents office and exhibition space there. Many of our Club members teach classes or hold workshops at The Barn — these are contracted by them directly with The Barn. The Club is committed to supporting the well-being of the Barn and sets aside some portion of its budget for programs or improvements according to the Club’s ability within the scope of its mission as a donation to the Foundation. Club members support the Barn through donations of time and money to Foundation fund-raising events and campaigns.  If you’re looking for The Barn’s website — click here.
