CINCINNATI, OH.- In a special tribute to Cincinnati’s late premier gallerist Carl Solway, Carl Solway Gallery will present ARCHIVES: Carl Solway Gallery 1962-2023. Opening Friday, May 12 continuing through July 14 at 424 Findlay Street, in Cincinnati’s West End. The exhibition will be devoted to presenting sixty-one years of selected gallery ephemera, including artist’s correspondence, exhibition announcements, drawings, sculptures, posters, photographs, prints, catalogues, and other related materials.

Some of the influential artists of his time with which Carl Solway worked are Harry Bertoia, John Cage, Helen Frankenthaler, Buckminster Fuller, Sam Gilliam, Ann Hamilton, Richard Hamilton, Charlotte Moorman, Claes Oldenburg, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, George Rickey, Mark Rothko, Saul Steinberg, Pat Steir, Joan Snyder, Andy Warhol, and many others. Archives will highlight artwork and ephemera related to those artists by illustrating the gallery’s enduring cultural influence since its founding in 1962.

Carl sought out and dedicated his life to artists and visionaries that inspired him personally, said Michael. “The artists he chose to show served as influencers and teachers. He believed artists played a critical role in what we deem as the evidence of history.”

After the conclusion of the Archives exhibition, a new exhibition will mark the transition from Carl Solway Gallery to simply, Solway Gallery. Tree Conscious, a group exhibition opening September 15th, will explore the symbolic and spiritual connections of tree imagery throughout art history.

The transitioned Solway Gallery, with Michael Solway at the helm, will operate as a changing project space dedicated to presenting thematically curated group exhibitions, as well as solo artist presentations. The gallery will continue to have regular hours Tuesday through Friday and by appointment, on Mondays and Saturdays.

While assuring there will always be a place at Solway Gallery for Carl’s legacy, and for the artists he admired, Michael looks forward to the years ahead and the exciting changes they will bring. “My vision for the future of Solway Gallery is an exploratory visual journey of looking at different genres of art-making through the ages, brought together in Cincinnati’s West End space,” Michael said. “There will be different kinds of artworks, possibly generating separate or corresponding narratives, with ongoing exhibitions to contemplate as a collection of ideas.”
