Taste of Cincinnati/Charley Harper Mash-Up

For most Americans, Memorial Day weekend is made up of seemingly endless backyard cookouts interspersed with hours lazing in the sun, preferably by a pool. For residents of the Queen City, it means one thing….Taste of Cincinnati has returned!

Now in its 34th year, Taste of Cincinnati is the country’s oldest food festival! It runs Saturday-Monday on Fifth Street downtown. The hours are: Noon-Midnight Saturday and Sunday and Noon-Nine PM on Monday. In addition to some of the best food the city has to offer, there is non-stop entertainment all weekend, with four dozen regional acts performing on various stages. If you are in town, be sure to check it out!

We think that Taste of Cincinnati is the perfect excuse to share some of Charley Harper’s most delectable images! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Dean Russo: Animal Art That Pops

Humans love, revere and rely on animals to such an extent that an Earth bereft of their presence is unthinkable. Through the ages, we have eagerly shown our affection and awe for our four-legged friends via every available art form, from cave paintings to Egyptian tombs; the Medieval Bestiary to Art Noveau architecture. More recently, we have had the Minimal Realism of Charley Harper and the wildlife art of John Ruthven. If you love the idea but want something thoroughly contemporary and fun, that speaks to both your proclivity for color and dedication to your best feline or canine pal, then the work of Brooklyn-based artist Dean Russo is for you. His 8 x 10 portraits give a unique and bold pop art spin to a wide variety of dog (and cat) breeds. His animals, looking out from behind real eyes, are peculiarly soulful. Check out the gallery for just some of the Russo images that we carry.
