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.

Nationally and regionally known artist, art restorer/conservator and consultant Bill Taylor is coming to The Barn with a new show, his first one-man show in over 40 years. Mr. Taylor describes his work as “…Modern, or semi-abstract”. When asked about influences in his art, he said that music serves as a major inspiration and would subtitle this show, “Music in the Air”. The show is a retrospective of his over 50-year art career. He has exhibited in numerous museums, galleries, and universities and has been the recipient of many art awards. His work hangs in private collections in the US, Africa and Spain.
He invites the public to the opening of the show on Sunday, September 13 from 1-4pm. The show runs through Sept. 29th with weekday gallery hours of Tuesday through Friday, 9am to 2pm and weekend hours of 1pm - 3pm.
Bill was born in Opelika, Alabama on April 30, 1937. He moved to Cincinnati in 1950, where he attended school. He studied with Antonio Montenegro Blackburn (a sculptor) and Emily Frank in New York City.
