Know Theatre of Cincinnati is excited to announce a photo exhibit as a part of the city-wide celebration of photography, FotoFocus. FotoFocus @ Know is curated by former Cincinnati Fringe Visual Fringe chairperson, Matt Steffen, and will feature nine photographers, ranging in style and scope.
The public is welcome to join Know Theatre for the exhibition’s opening on Thursday, October 4 with a free reception from 6 pm to 9 pm. Happy hour drink prices and light food will be provided.
“I'm always intrigued with how much an artist's personal style comes through in a medium with such limiting execution,” says curator Matt Steffen. “I wanted this exhibit to showcase those differences on a massive scale.” Matt has gathered a number of early career professional artists as well as several young artists from the Art Academy of Cincinnatti. Artists included are Scott Beseler, Justin Caridi, Marc Croswell, Billy Golden, Caleb Marhoover, Stephen Metz, Marci Rhodes, Matt Steffen and Sara Tucker.
The exhibit will fill the walls of Know Theatre’s Underground bar with images of portraiture, documentary and experimentation during the month of October. The exhibit will be salon-style with photos reaching from floor to ceiling on all mountable surfaces. All photos will be for sale. As this is exhibit is created by a Jackson Street Market artist, Know Theatre will forego any commission on the work so that 100% of the purchase price is returned directly to these working artists and students.
The exhibit space will be open Monday through Friday 11am – 6pm and during other Know Theatre events and will run through November 4, 2012.
