May 6th: Gallery talk with Michael Wilson and Fredrik Marsh in Cincinnati

Michael Wilson’s personal work as well as his well-known commissioned portraiture is currently on view at the Weston Art Gallery in Cincinnati in an exhibition entitled “The Day Of Small Things.”   The much of the work was recently exhibited at The Light Factory and is now on view in his home town.  Michael’s self-produced books continue to be among my very favorites.

To read an interview with Michael, click here, and the audio interview here where he discusses his iconic image “Newport Dogs” that was featured as the cover art on ALL SHOOK DOWN, the last album recorded by The Replacements, as well as other images that I know my readers will be familiar with.  Michael is teaching a one-week portraiture workshop at Maine Media Workshops in mid-June; his website is http://www.michaelwilsonphotographer.com

Michael is exhibiting along side another Ohio-based artist, photographer Fredrik Marsh (“The Dresden Project“) who was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2008.  His website is www.fredrikmarsh.com

The two artists will be speaking about their work on MAY 6th at 7 p.m. at the Weston Art Gallery which is located within the Aronoff Center for the Arts in downtown Cincinnati.
