Weston Art Gallery.

I don’t miss many things about my old job. Not very many at all. But the one thing I miss the most was the location. I felt more centrally located in the Central Business District when I was located at Eighth and Main Streets. As opposed to now, being tucked away in this little armpit of downtown over by the Bengals Stadium. I just used to be really close to way more stuff. And one of the things I miss was being right around the corner from the Weston Art Gallery because the Weston always has some really interesting art exhibits.

On my way to the bus after work tonight, I was by the Weston and stopped in to see their current exhibition…

The current exhibition was called Emily Moores’s Felt Embrace. It’s an undulating and ornate suspended installation comprised of wood, paper, and fabric in the Weston’s street-level space…

In her intricate and ethereal installations, Emily Moores (Cincinnati, OH) investigates the affective dimensions of texture: the intimate interaction with an individual’s feelings and body without physical touch. Responding to the vertical expanse of the Weston’s street-level atrium,  Moores constructs Felt Embrace, a new suspended installation assembled from folded and cut paper and fabric that combines ornamentation and patterns in a unified monumental mass, fragile and detailed, yet also ominous and tumultuous. With this new installation, Moores’s recent addition of bold color into her work creates greater impact and dynamic contrast to its architectural setting.

It’s a really beautiful exhibition. I’ll have to try to stop back on Friday to see what is on display in their lower level.  😀🖼️🎨❤️
