Cincinnati: Shadow and Light

Oct. 4, 2014 – Nov. 15, 2014
Tues–Fri:10 am–5 pm | Sat:11 am–4 pm.

Cincinnati: Shadow and Light features more than 50 photographs by award-winning photojournalist and former Cincinnati Enquirer photographer Michael E. Keating, whose career has spanned five decades. The retrospective of photographs in Shadow and Light serves as historical narrative for the region. It also reveals much about the photographer himself. On display is a work of contrast: the beauty of our city and its people but also the harsh underbelly of daily life. Organized by themes — The Ohio River; Dispatches from the Field; The Cincinnati Reds; and Character and Personality. Also, the exhibit will introduce, Cincinnati: Shadow and Light, a beautifully published book of Mr. Keating’s photographs, including the exhibition photography and more. The book is at the Kennedy Heights Arts Center shop as well as many booksellers. All profits from the sale of the book and the photographs from the exhibit will be donated to The Clyde N. Day Foundation supporting student scholarships.

The Exhibition Opening is Saturday, October 4, from 6 to 9 pm. A Gallery Talk by Photographer Michael E. Keating is scheduled for Saturday, October 25 at 2 pm.
