PJ Sturdevant: Remembering 1975–1980

September 29, 2018October 27, 2018

Remembering 1975–1980 is a collection of prints by PJ Sturdevant created using the traditional Bromoil process between 1975 and 1980 on 35mm film. Reviewing his archive of more than one thousand 35mm negatives helped Sturdevant remember this time period and relfect on how things have changed, like Martin Street. Now renamed Adams Crossing, it was once a street with a church, junk shops, and residential properties. Many of the subjects in Sturdevant’s archive no longer exist or have been significantly changed.

Bromoil was one of the favorite and beloved processes of the pictorialists and salon exhibition photographers during the first half of the 20th-century. No exhibition of the pictorialist photographic arts was without lovely, soft, and painterly Bromoil prints. These prints were handcrafted and produced using brushes and lithographic ink making each print unique.

Flyover Country

September 29, 2018October 27, 2018

A juried exhibition of photographs by local artists illuminating America’s interior regions, an often-overlooked bastion of cultural, social, political, and economic vitality. Air travelers flying coast to coast at 30,000 feet are often oblivious to the diverse, unsung populations of urban areas, small towns, and villages they are passing over. In many ways, the daily lives of people in these flyover regions are not so different from those in large coastal cities but there are many opportunities to capture scenes not found on either coast. The cultural, social, political, and economic vitality of the regions rivals that of either coast, and the intellectual and artistic aspirations are equally stimulating. Flyover Country intends to illuminate the often deliberate, sometimes perceived, anonymity of the forgotten, overlooked, or neglected subjects—social, cultural, or geographic demographics between coastal regions or ideological extremes.

Flyover Country is curated by Local Eyes, a group of five Cincinnati photographers: Helen Adams, Jymi Bolden, Melvin Grier, Samantha Grier, and Ann Segal.

Featured Artists: Erika NJ Allen, Tad Barney, Lisa Britton, Michael Caporale, Chris Cone, Bruce Crippen, Robert A. Flischel, Maureen France, Tim Freeman, Tina Gutierrez, Ron Hoffman, Todd Joyce, Michael Kearns, Michael E. Keating, Guennadi Maslov, Mary Nemeth, Brenda Pottinger, Larry Pytlinski, Jesse Roos, Gregory Rust, J. Michael Skaggs, Brad Smith, Matt Steffen, Jerry Stratton, David Thomson, Bryn Weller, J. Miles Wolf
