I hope the summer is treating you all very well- it's been hot but that's pretty much the name of the game in Cincinnati. 1305 Gallery has been on hiatus for a few months for personal reasons, and being closed has been a necessary but difficult decision. There are too many great artists in this city and so few great spaces for exhibitions. That's why the gallery's doors will reopen Final Friday August 31st for an exhibition of ceramic work by local artist Katie Swartz! The gallery will resume regular hours Thursday through Sunday from 12-4 with the opening of Katie's show. In September/October Rachel Reisert's photography exhibition Tropism will be on display just in time for the massive FOTOFOCUS event taking place here in Cincinnati. No joke- I'm already talking about the holiday show- that's Yuletide 2012- to open at the end of November. 1305 Gallery will be accepting submissions for new artists/crafters for this show when the gallery reopens at the end of August. There might only be a few slots available, as I'm hoping many of the great people who have participated in past Yuletides will be back this year. Look for more detailed info about Katie Swartz's and other upcoming shows online very soon (either in your inbox, the blog, or on facebook)!
