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. If you have any questions contact AUM or me via klingerart.com, klingerstudios.blogspot.com or 937-767-2346.

New Show at 5th/3rd Center Gallery is Now Open

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.

Upcoming Shows at Emporium and Yellow Springs Arts Council

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. I'll show some new work and you'll see some great deals on the old work. I still like it but I have to make room! The opening reception is Sat., 8/11, 3 - 6 PM. (Same day as Art on the Lawn). 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!

The Animal Attraction

I love animals - friendly ones that is - and I have had my share of cats, dogs, fish, turtles, etc. over the years. I miss my beautiful Himalayan cat Lucy, who left us last year after 14 1/2 years of happy, healthy life. So besides painting, photography, sculpture and teaching, I do the occasional pet care job - your place or mine. (I also house sit and care for plants, mail, etc.) More information will probably show up here at some point, but you are also free to contact me about it by visiting one of my other blogs - one that's exclusively about animals - animal art, animal information, animal care, and a little bit on plants as well. So stop in and say hello sometime at The Animal Attraction blog. I'll put a link to it on the right.
P.S. On the near right is a little 8" x 6" oil portrait I painted of Lucy. I titled it her full (Cat Fancier) name: Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. (She's the only pure-bred cat I've ever had - they are usually strays who find me).

Held Over by Popular Demand!



Well, not really. But due to some Village Artisans schedule shifting - my show gets to stay up a bit longer than planned. It's now up through Monday, Nov. 6 (I'll be there taking it down early afternoon on Tues. 11/7). So if you didn't get a chance to see it sooner - you can now see it later!
