 which highlights 20 color filled digital visual art
 created using brilliant color,
 dramatic moods and an inkjet printer from the 1990s. 

See it now in the
 Albert E. Heekin and Bertha E. Heekin Gallery.
 (Gallery 212 on the second floor) 

Now through March 22, 2015

Modern Voices in Japanese Ceramics and Prints
February 07, 2015 to April 26, 2015

This exhibition of approximately thirty-five works
 will pair modern and contemporary
 Japanese prints and ceramics.
 The prints are from the Art Museum’s permanent collection,
 including selections from the
 Howard and Caroline Porter Collection.
 The Japanese ceramics of the same era are
 lent by Jeffrey and Carol Horvitz.
 Shown together, these works disclose a brilliant dialogue
 through shared rhythms, patterns,
 textures, emotions and ideas.

Artist Alice Balterman Estate Auction

Alice Balterman,  friend of many, was a gifted artist who passed away last year.  580 items from her estate are being auctioned off online this week with the closing being on Sunday 1/18/15 starting at 4pm.   It will be the last time to have the opportunity to purchase one of Alice's memorable collage art books and other collage objects that she made along with a lifetime of collections including two book presses.

"Everything But The House is proud to offer the art and antiques
 of Alice Balterman, a Cincinnati native
 and distinctive multimedia artist
 who specialized in collage, assemblage, decoupage
 and altered “artist books.”
 She once said, “The delight of such media is their sense
 of timelessness and their range of effects -–
 humor, formality, surrealism and poetry.”
 For many years her works were featured in museum
 and specialty gift shops around Cincinnati.
 Alice Balterman also had a discerning eye for antiques
 and there are many fine examples for your consideration."
