Online Art Exhibits

Students have been adding to their digital portfolios on Artsonia. Parents - you can easily add relatives' email addresses into your child's account, and then they will be notified when new artwork is posted for viewing. It's a great way to share students' creativity with family members that live far away! (Their account keeps artwork from year to year, allowing you to see their visual art skills develop over time.) Visit Johnson's Gallery to see all of our amazing artworks.

  • LIBRARY MAKERSPACE NEEDS: Empty paper towel rolls and/or toilet paper rolls

Antique Christmas in 2016

Antique Christmas at the Taft Museum of Art

November 4, 2016 – January 8, 2017

"Get into the holiday mood by visiting the Taft’s annual display of antique ornaments, decorations, and toys. Thanks to generous lenders from Cincinnati and beyond, you can escape to a winter wonderland of Christmas past. This year you will see a miniature log cabin in Christmastime woods; an antique clockwork Santa; an exhibit of early German nutcrackers; antique Christmas feather trees trimmed entirely with delightful red and pink ornaments, and—benefitting this national election year— a large-scale tree with old patriotic ornaments in red, blue and white. Festive greenery will deck the halls and exterior of the house, and the Dining Room will be set for the holidays with sparkling china, crystal, and silver."

Visit their website for more information.

Vincent van Gogh Exhibit - ends Jan 8

Centered on the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Undergrowth with Two Figures, the exhibition explores the significance of the forest interior, or sous-bois, to the art of Vincent van Gogh. Into the Undergrowth traces the evolution of the artist’s style and techniques through this special group of landscape paintings spanning his career. Featuring more than 20 works on loan from American, Asian, and European collections, this exhibition allows visitors to compare Van Gogh’s treatment of this theme with examples by those who influenced and inspired him, including Théodore Rousseau, Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet and Paul Gauguin.


Tickets to Van Gogh: Into the Undergrowth include admission to Kentucky Renaissance.
