Opening Reception on Friday Sept. 26th from 6-9pm.
Clay Street Press is located at 1312 Clay Street, Cincinnati 45202

An intimate experience creates a Place, transforming installations into more familiar, personal spaces. In this work, I seek to create Place through interaction with my participants to produce objects that serve as profound metaphors for intimate spaces and the weight of being  human.

I offer an intimate look at the presence of strangers. Viewers walk amongst each other and casts of feet, which occupy and share their space. Two-dimensional  photographs of the bottom of feet suggest the corporal weight of bodies, evoking a physical interaction between the artwork and viewers, and requesting acceptance of the human.


Casting individuals' feet is a true collaborative and participatory act, which allows me to establish a sincere connection with the participants . During more than thirty sessions of feet casting, my participants and I shared the stories of our lives. Through their time and genuine effort our memories were drawn together. Without their gifts, my art is incomplete. It is their support and trust, shared through our communication, that creates the wisdom that fulfills my art and serves as a form of prayer to me.

Hollis Hammonds: Worthless Matter

Thursday, February 13, 5-7pm. Free and open to the public.

Reed Gallery, DAAP Complex

Exploring consumerist culture through evidence of accumulation, hoarding and collecting; piles of buildings, chairs and trash permeate the works of Hollis Hammonds. Since her childhood, a seemingly endless stream of tornadoes, floods and hurricanes, have inspired her work, as drifts of rubble lay in their wake. Ranging from documentary studies of storms and storm damage to sculptural wall drawings of crashing waves, her works often illustrate imaginary piles of debris left after fictional, natural, and man-made disasters. 


Worthless Matter spans several years of creative work dealing with memory, material consumption, waste, catastrophe and superficial loss.

Hal Lasko: The Pixel Painter

February 3-March 30

DAAP Galleries: Philip M. Meyers Jr. Memorial Gallery

DAAP Galleries at the University of Cincinnati is pleased to present „The Pixel Painter,‰ the first solo exhibition of artist Hal Lasko, on view from February 3 through March 30, 2013 in DAAP Galleries Philip M. Meyers, Jr. Memorial Gallery. 

Hal Lasko, a „Lettering Man‰ by trade, began working in commercial art studios as a typographer in the 1930s and continued to do so for most of his professional career, eventually retiring from American Greetings in 1980s where he had worked as a lettering consultant. In his personal life, Lasko enjoyed oil and watercolor painting and created more than fifty original works between 1948 and 1994. In the late ‚90s Lasko received a computer from his grandson Ryan and began doing works on the computer for enjoyment. Since being diagnosed with Wet Macular Degeneration, Lasko‚s computer has become no longer a toy but an essential tool allowing him to continue to create. Using Microsoft Paint he enlarges sections of his works and paints them pixel by pixel. Having no desire to disguise the nature of his work, Lasko has developed a modern-day pointillist style, creating works ranging from abstract designs to landscapes and still lifes. 

At age 98 Lasko exemplifies the creative spirit and the power of art to stimulate the mind and nurture the soul. Please join us in celebrating the life, work, and spirit of Hal Lasko in this inspiring exhibition.
