Cliftonfest Recap

Thank you to everyone who came out for Cliftonfest this weekend. The weekend was a great success. If you weren’t able to make it down , try to head over to see the ArtCarpets before they wash away. My mural is on Ludlow, in front of the Clifton Library book drop. I’m excited I was able to be a part of the weekend.IMAG3449

Final Friday, Guest Artist Jeb Brack & Cliftonfest

Today is Final Friday at Pendleton Art Center, and I am excited to share that joining me in my studio will be guest artist Jeb Brack. I  met Jeb, who recently moved to Cincinnati with his family, when he came with his family to several of the Pendleton’s Art in Action programs. We got to talking and I found out he was a self-taught artist who did pencil and pen and ink drawings of buildings and houses. He does commission drawings of homes too, for those of you who might be interested. In addition to his art, Jeb is a professional magician, writer, proofreader, and podcaster.

I’ll be in the studio with Jeb on Friday and on Saturday you’ll be able to find me at Cliftonfest drawing a pastel ArtCarpet on the sidewalk in front of the library on Ludlow. There are going to be some wonderful artists and performers out all weekend celebrating Clifton.

Final Friday, Poetry Shots, Pots and Lemonade

Terri Kern Pots

I have a lot of events coming up! Join me Friday, May 31 for Final Friday at the Pendleton Art Center from 6-10 pm and on Saturday for Art In Action from 11am-3pm.

These are some of my new pieces. I have been getting in touch with my “inner Shakespeare” and have been writing. I started with a simple, three line verse, haiku, and hope to work my way up to longer poems. I am carving the words and some illustrations onto shot glasses. I am calling this series “Poetry Shots”.

They will be for sale at my next local show, “Pots and Lemonade”. It is on Saturday, June 8th from 10am to 4pm. This a great local show with the ceramic work of five clay artists. Louise Jenks, Brenda Tarbell, Pam Korte, Richard Aerni and myself. The show offers functional, sculptural and decorative clay work in a variety of styles and offers work which fits every budget. The address is 1326 Edwards Rd. Cincinnati, Ohio 45208 and its just a couple blocks from Hyde Park Square.

Help save the Cincinnati Arts Ambassador Fellowship program from budget cuts

Please help save the Cincinnati Arts Ambassador Fellowship (CAAF) program from budget cuts! This wonderful program awards seven local artists from any artistic discipline grants of $6000 to do a creative work, which they then share with citizens.  I was fortunate enough to receive one of the grants this past year.
You can help by attending the City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 28 at City Hall (3rd floor) from  2-3:30 pm. I would also encourage you to call and email council members before Tuesday at 1pm and ask them to support saving CAAF and tell them why it’s important to you.
