Cincinnati Art Museum Honors Carl Solway

Cincinnati Art Museum presents "Not in New York: Carl Solway and Cincinnati"

CINCINNATI, OH.- The Cincinnati Art Museum presents Not in New York: Carl Solway and Cincinnati April 30 through October 30.
The exhibition explores many of the most compelling contemporary artworks in the museum’s permanent collection that connect to
Carl Solway’s transformative influence on the Cincinnati arts scene.

About 50 artworks, including paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings and multi-media, are on display, some for the first time. The exhibition
features works by John Cage, Ann Hamilton, Nam June Paik, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Jim Dine, Robert Rauschenberg, J
udy Pfaff, Pat Steir, Helen Frankenthaler and many others. Solway’s unique role in the museum’s history is evidenced in these works,
drawn solely from the permanent collection of the Cincinnati Art Museum. The exhibition is independently curated by the Cincinnati Art
Museum and part of an ongoing series examining the 140 years of development of the museum’s encyclopedic collections of over
66,000 objects.

Solway’s generosity and relationships with artists, artmaking processes, museums and the community indelibly raised Cincinnati’s
place in 20th century contemporary art discourse. Born in Chicago and raised in Cincinnati, Solway is a publisher, donor, gallerist and
most importantly, an educator. He played a vital role in building contemporary art discourse and awareness in the Midwest and beyond,
including many public and private collections.

Away from the art centers of New York and Los Angeles, Cincinnati became an influential place for late 20th century artists not
because of the size or heft of the market, but because of Solway and others who created it. Solway and his former wife, Gail Forberg,
 opened Flair Gallery in 1962. It was later renamed the Carl Solway Gallery in 1970. For a period of time Solway simultaneously
operated his namesake gallery and the Not in New York Gallery on West Fourth Street in Cincinnati, as well as shared space in
 New York City’s SoHo neighborhood. Not in New York brought the emerging Midwest art scene to the attention of the art world,
and in return brought leading international artists to Cincinnati.

“The Cincinnati Art Museum is thrilled to recognize Carl Solway’s contribution to the Art Museum’s collection. He has made his
mark in Cincinnati homes and the Art Museum’s permanent collection and has made a name for himself as a leader in contemporary
art collecting in the Midwest,” says Kristin Spangenberg, Cincinnati Art Museum’s curator of prints. Spangenberg is co-curating
this exhibition along with Matt Distel, exhibitions director at The Carnegie, Covington, Ky.

  1. I already had a bad breitling replica not long ago when I bought from another company a replica watch according to the picture as appeared at their site and received something with many differences from the picture. I had to return it. This cartier replica uk I want to be sure and convinced with a real picture. I recently purchased a rolex replica uk and I was very upset to find that it did not work as expect. The quality of the rolex replica sale wasn't good & this is not the quality that I have come to expect from you. I would like you simply return the watch to you & refund the cost of the rolex replica sale which was $314.78. Since, the item was not used at all which is still new. As I stated before, I expected much more from your rolex replica sale. All I want is my money back or to replace it with one that has great quality.
