Jeremy Johnson presents one of his trademark "performances" at Prairie this Saturday evening. Johnson will discuss his work and ideas about naturalism and Alfred Russel Wallace in commemoration of the 100 year anniversary of Wallace's death. Participants will observe and interact with animal specimens at various stages of processing. Demonstrations including insect mounting, taxidermy, and skeletal articulation will be provided as a way to reconsider the philosophy and science of nature.

Jeremy Johnson returns to Prairie for his second show, this time collaborating with Aaron Kent, to fill the gallery space with taxidermy, mixed media and installation. Works in the show all bear some relation to traditional practices of natural history in which plants and animals were collected, dissected and presented in various displays for educational purposes. Included in this show is a mating display of Great Malaysian Argus Pheasants as well as a work station installed atop an early 1900's roll top desk showcasing pieces in process to provide the viewer a better understanding of traditional practices used during the Victorian age.
Aaron Kent presents works of a more contemporary nature featuring sculpture casts from bone forms. His work will also include a range of molds and process work on modern work surfaces as a counterpoint to Johnson's highly finished work. Kent's work explores the natural cycle of deterioration and regeneration of new life.
Opening Reception on Saturday October 12th from 7-9pm.

Landscape Re-Framed: Sculptures by Celene Hawkins
Show on view through October 20th, 2013.
Cincinnati-based artist Celene Hawkins is inspired by the Taft’s European landscape paintings. Her exhibition draws upon the botanical motifs found in gilded decorative frames, as well as the landscapes ensconced within. In her work, frames move beyond merely presenting a work of art to becoming the art themselves. Within these structures, Hawkins incorporates her vision of the modern landscape, which both echoes and challenges the ideal presented in 19th-century painting.
Celene Hawkins will give a free talk on Sunday, September 15 at 2 p.m. Reception to follow. Reservations are requested. Call (513) 684-4515 or register online

Opening on September 6, 2013, Carl Solway Gallery will present a 25-year survey of the prints and editions of New York artist Peter Halley. The exhibition will feature 33 editioned works, including silkscreen, letterpress, and digital prints, editioned wall installations, and low-relief sculptural editions.
The works on view provide an overview of Halley’s wide-ranging experimentation in both traditional and digital printmaking techniques since the 1980s.
Beginning with his early vacuum-formed relief “Prison,” produced in 1987, and concluding with his most recent low-relief edition, “Explosion," produced digitally with a CNC router by Carl Solway Gallery in 2013, this show presents the first retrospective of Halley’s prints and wall installations since his 1997 solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
