May 13th, 2018  |  Published in April/May 2018

Kevin Muente’s show “Forgotten Land” is currently up at Marta Hewett Gallery, located in Cincinnati’s Pendleton neighborhood. He uses figures within these landscapes to create a narrative through single or multiple images. Often the images echo classical or referenced figures from orthodox art.

Moving in a different direction from his traditional landscapes, Muente stages photos of friends and family posed with costumes or props in carefully selected locati...

This will be the first solo exhibition by Jorge Rodríguez Diez (Havana, 1969) in the United States, an opportunity "fortunate" in the middle of the renewed state of bilateral tension and the virtua...

The aim of “Interwoven/Contemporary Textiles” at the Marta Hewett Gallery is to explore “traditional and alternative textile materials.” Despite the diversity of what’s on view, the exhibition can be divided into artists who use traditional techniques and materials, and others who use alternative materials but still work with basically traditional techniques.

“A Sense of Home: New Quilts by Heather Jones,” Taft Museum of Art, through February 18, 2018.

December 23rd, 2017  |  Published in *, December 2017 | Karen S. Chambers

Jones sees modern quilting as “look(ing) at traditional quilting and then do(ing) its own thing.” 1 For this quilt maker, “its own thing” marries tradition and contemporary abstract art in quilts that are meant to be used and “paintings”—smaller pieced works stretched over wood supports.

October 29th, 2017  |  Published in October 2017  

You enter a different world when you walk into the Marta Hewett Gallery.
