The Woman's Art Club Cultural Center (The Barn)
The Woman’s Art Club of Cincinnati (The Club)
The Club was founded in 1892 by 19 women artists, in response to the Cincinnati Art Club’s refusal to accept female members. Today The Club is more than 250 women strong and is the oldest Woman’s Art Club operating without interruption in the United States. A bit of history: In 1992, our centennial year, The Club moved to its first permanent address at the Pendleton Art Center.
Then, in 2006, in order to raise funds to restore the Resthaven Barn in Mariemont as a Cultural Center, The Club created the Woman’s Art Club of Cincinnati Foundation (The Foundation). The Barn currently provides space for art instruction, art exhibits, artists’ studios, meetings and events. The Barn continues to be maintained and operated by The Foundation as a State of Ohio Cultural Facility serving men, women, and children of the Greater Cincinnati Area.

We welcome the exuberant, expressive artwork of Terrace Park resident and well-regarded Cincinnati artist Dave Laug to the Gallery in November. Heavily influenced by the Fauve and Post-impressionist movements, his art reflects his travels and an eye for the simplistic beauty of urban and social environments. Dave is an accomplished artist and teacher whose vibrant and visually engaging artwork is included in many private and corporate collections. His work has been featured in numerous shows and galleries including the Duveneck and Indian Hill Art Shows, Closson’s the Carnegie and Ran galleries. Dave works out of Studio MoVida, at 238 Essex Studios.
Join Dave at his Opening Reception on Sunday, Nov. 8 to meet Dave, view his engaging art, enjoy nibbles and drinks and general bonhomie!
Show continues weekends 1pm – 4pm and weekdays 10am – 2pm (closed Mondays), through Nov. 29.
