The show was a bit of a challenge to install (to say the least) but I think it looks great (ahem) on those gorgeous walls. It's been up for a month now and I had a really nice sale the other day. Maybe I'll get lucky and have a few more. Stop by sometime if you get a chance - just walk around, dine if you like (great food), and let me know what you think. Several friends have done that already and it's really nice to get the feedback!
Pam Dillon wrote a nice article about my show that was in the Sunday, 7/9/17, Dayton Daily News. Thanks Pam!
I've been painting up a storm and enjoying it immensely. It's been a great learning experience - and escape. The image above is of a 28" x 28" mixed media painting titled "Under Sea 1."
I'll be showing it and more of my recent work - abstract and otherwise - at the Meadowlark Restaurant (at 5531 Far Hills Avenue, Dayton, OH 45429) from July 11 - October 8, 2017. The show is titled (what else?): "Approaching Abstractions 2 - New Paintings by Christine Klinger." Many of these were at my recent show at the Yellow Springs Brewery - but many were not alive yet. I may or may not have a reception; if I do it will be very informal and I'll tell you about it later. In any case - I hope you can catch the show!

Learn the basics of working in acrylic paint in this fun and helpful 3-session course at Yellow Springs Public Library.

Depending on interest, we can paint simple still lifes and landscapes. All materials you need will be provided, but feel free to bring in a few simple items to make your own personal still life and photographs or magazines or books showing simple landscapes you would like to paint. All levels are welcome.

I recently delivered a big commissioned painting - see left - to the huge, brand new Dayton Children's Hospital south of Dayton. The painting(s) are 5 - 30" x 30" panels that line up together and I titled it "When Fish Fly." Many other artists from Greene, Montgomery and surrounding counties were selected for the commissions and I was honored to be amongst them. There will be a few media and public receptions for dedication of the gorgeous building and its new artwork. I'm thinking/hoping this will all be publicized soon. It was a fun challenge!

What's in a name? - We're still not ready to open to the public - completely - but we're working on it, and I guess we're not quite ready to change names yet either. Sorry for the confusion. We plan to, eventually, go by the name Springs Studio, but not officially yet. In any case, if you want to keep up to date on our activities, feel free to follow us here, or drop us a line, or visit and contact us at our old, trusty web site: klingerart.com. Facebook is back in place (KS) now too. Thanks for stopping by!
