{cincinnati ROCKS}: YWCA women's art gallery

Cincinnati ROCKS are regular posts to share with y'all, the lovely blogosphere, some of the local bits of wonderful that make Cincinnati, not Cleveland, well... rock. Sit back, pop open a can of Mt. Dew and start thinking about moving here. :)

I often end up at the YWCA's office downtown for various meetings and always so enjoy seeing the beautiful exhibits on the second floor that are part of the YWCA Women's Art Gallery. This gallery was established in 1993 and has been "a forum for women's issues relating to important YWCA programs and services, the gallery has sponsored photographic exhibits on the topics of domestic violence, breast cancer, and women and aging. It is the only gallery in Greater Cincinnati exclusively for women's art".

While there last week, I had the privelage of taking some time to check out their current exhibit, Contemplating the Spaces Between. I was BLOWN AWAY by the work of Tina Tammaro that was displayed there. My gosh, the way she used light in these paintings took my breath away.
Please enjoy a few of her works that I snapped pictures of but get your butt to see them in person before it's too late! The Women’s Art Gallery is located at 898 Walnut Street and is both free and open to the public from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday and by appointment after hours and on Saturday.
