M’Shinda Abdulla-Broaddus and Sherri Lynn Wood
September 14 - October 26, 2019
Opening Reception: 6-9pm Saturday, September 14

This exhibition in the downstairs gallery at Wave Pool, pairs the work of two artists who come at the same idea from opposite perspectives:  What does it look like to make a home for oneself—as an individual, and as part of a larger collective?

To unpack that question, recent Cincinnati transplant Sherri Lynn Wood’s ongoing community-based project Sew LeWitt invites gallery visitors to create their own sewn compositions into a larger community tapestry; while multi-disciplinary artist M’Shinda Abdullah Broaddus will exhibit recent printed digital collages that document a performance during a recent residency at Richard Carter’s studio in Pope Valley, California.

Selections from our wood shop program and The Welcome Project
September 14 - October 19, 2019
Opening Reception: 6-9pm Saturday, September 14

Come see functional yet beautiful works created by folks at Wave Pool. Exhibited art includes ceramics made during the last year at The Welcome Project as well as coffee tables and other wooden objects crafted by participants in our community Wood Shop.

Wave Pool’s wood shop program is spearheaded and managed by woodworker Scottie Bellissemo. New classes are taught each season. Wave Pool’s The Welcome Project is managed by artist and organizer Erika Allen. The ceramics classes are taught by a rotating group of ceramicists included M’Shinda Abdulla-Broaddus, Kyle Pennunuri, and Diane Fishbein.

Advice for Future Homecomers

September 13 - November 10
Exhibition and program series at People’s Liberty
1805 Elm St. | 10am-4pm Thursday-Saturday

Wave Pool is thrilled to organize the final exhibit in the People’s Liberty storefront, aimed at inviting reflection and exchange around homecoming and what it looks like to engage in our changing communities with thoughtfulness and care. Every Friday and Saturday during the run of the exhibition artist and baker Christian Schmit is baking pretzels in the People’s Liberty storefront (you can join him and tie some doughy knots yourself), followed by distributing pretzels to neighbors and visitors in exchange for advice for future (or returning) Cincinnatians.

Artists in the exhibition include The Archive of Creative Culture, Elese Daniel, Lizzy Duquette, Llewellyn Fletcher, Christian Schmit, and Catherine Whithead. The exhibition and programs are curated by Calcagno Cullen of Wave Pool.
