Table Setting Show - a national online exhibit

Here's the first of 3 paintings I had in a recent, national online exhibit run by an old friend/mentor of mine - Bob Burridge of California. The show was called "Table Settings." This painting is an 18" x 24" oil on canvas titled "Matisse Homage."
This one and the next are slight reworks of 2 little 8" x 10" oils on canvas I made awhile back. The one above is titled "My Salmon" and the one below is "My Filet." All these are currently available. Email me if you're interested. Thanks.

YSAC MEMBERS SHOW - "Isolation" - Up through March 31, 2021 - possibly longer...

It's been awhile since I've posted here but I'm back, for now anyway. I hope everyone out there is doing well and staying healthy. Here are the 3 pieces I have in the recent "Yellow Springs Arts Council's Annual Members Show." It's still up, on the web site (see Links We Like) through March 31 - possibly longer. Due to upcoming cancelled or postponed exhibits the members' show may end up sticking around awhile. The theme of the show was "Isolation" - expressions of what we saw, felt, did, dreamed about, etc. - surrounding the COVID-19 virus. Due to the pandemic - the exhibit is all on line and we had a zoom reception. Very strange but it all went as well as we could expect, I guess. I'm looking forward to seeing humans again. If you're interested in a purchase - email me. Contact info. is in my profile area (you need to hover over the email link to see it). Here is more information about the paintings: 1. Chaos Garden, acrylic, 12" x 9", $110, 2. Reality - TV, acrylic, 10" x 8", $80, and 3. Sea Dream, acrylic, 5" x 7", $40.

The painting to the left is part of my current show at Antioch University Midwest, 900 Dayton St. at East Enon Rd., Yellow Springs, OH, 45387. For my Dayton and vicinity friends - it's the big, brick building on the left as you're approaching the Village from Dayton-Yellow Springs Rd. The show is titled New Paintings by Christine Klinger and it runs September 4 – October 31, 2019. I will have some really new work in this show (some are still wet), along with a few that are a bit older.

There will be an Artist's Reception on a 3rd Friday, September 20, 3 PM - 5 PM. I know the time seems odd but AUM isn't open late anymore - ever - so we're hoping to catch folks on their way to the other *3rd Friday events in Yellow Springs.

Antioch University Midwest's current hours are Monday - Friday 8 AM - 5:30 PM. Phone: 937-769-1800. If you can't make the reception perhaps you can see it another time; it will be up for awhile.

Image on left: "Water Series 1/Blue Watershed," acrylic on canvas, 36" x 36", painting and photo by Christine Klinger

I have a new show of paintings up at 5th/3rd Center Gallery in downtown Dayton. It's titled "Abstracts - Old and New." You'll see some (not all) of my newer work alongside some (not all) of my older work - with very affordable prices on the latter, on all, really. I love them but I am painting so much that I need to make room in my studio!


Here are some details on the show:

ABSTRACTS - OLD AND NEW
by Christine Klinger
July 1 - August 30, 2019
Artists' Reception is First Friday, August 2, 5 PM - 7 PM
5th/3rd Center Gallery
1 S. Main St. Dayton, OH, 45402
(Please note: there's a lot going on downtown on First Fridays. And 5th/3rd wants folks to know they can park in their parking garage - accessible from Ludlow).

www.klingerart.com
P.S. I just heard back from 5th/3rd - they say parking is free for the reception - and any time you come to see the art show. Just take your ticket to the security desk on the first floor, tell them why you're there, and the guard will validate it. Also, I meant to mention - my work is on both the first and second floors.


Also showing are cool, 3-D, felt sculptures of Kettering artist Rachael Redolfi. Her show is titled:
"Fibers & Filaments: Needle Felting and 3D Print Artwork
from Rachel A. Redolfi"

I hope you can catch us!

Upcoming Show at CAG - Centerville Art Gallery

Under Sea 1, acrylic/mixed media on canvas, 28" x 28", painting and photo by Christine Klinger


The Centerville Arts Commission is pleased to announce the November Art Gallery exhibit will feature “Water Abstracts and Sculpture by Christine Klinger” at the Centerville Police Department, 155 W. Spring Valley Road in Centerville. The exhibit runs from 11/2 through 11/30/18 and may be viewed anytime, day or night. The Centerville Arts Commission will host an artist’s reception 5 – 7 p.m. Friday, November 9 in the gallery to introduce the collection to the community. Light refreshments will be served.

Klinger is a sculptor, painter and photographer. She says the exhibit will show her fascination with water and “how powerful and beautiful it is, how we treat it, take it for granted, and how dependent we are on it – in all its various bodies and forms.”

The former coordinator of Rosewood Gallery in Kettering, Klinger lives in Yellow Springs, where she is a member of the Village Artisans Cooperative Gallery. A painter since 2006, she received an Artist in Residency in painting and photography from the State of South Carolina in 2011. She has written and photographed for publications and exhibited in Ohio, South Carolina and California. Klinger has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Antioch College and a master’s degree in Photojournalism from Ohio University. For more information, please visit www.klingerart.com.

Centerville Arts Commission was created by Centerville City Council to involve the citizens of the Centerville area in the visual and performing arts. For more information, call 937- 433-7151 or visit www.centervilleohio.gov.

I'm all over the place! I have 2 shows coming up in Yellow Springs. More later - elsewhere.

I'm showing at the Emporium/Underdog Cafe, 233 Xenia Ave., YSO, 8/11/18 - 10/7/18. The show is called CHRISTINE KLINGER - Abstracts Old and New.

Shows and party are free. Be there - or not. Here's a postcard for that one:


I'm also showing at the Yellow Springs Arts Council Gallery. The postcard below says it all, although you're always welcome to contact me here or via facebook (though I'm not in there much) if you have any questions. Hope you can make it to one or both!
