I attended the Cincinnati Modern show on Saturday and it was packed with lovely pieces as well as people! Any way, here are a bunch of pics with very little comment.
That's my friend Joanna looking cute in the Womb chair. I had not attended in probably 5 years and I came close to buying exhibit space this year but I got cold feet since I had not seen the show in so long, plus I did not have enough time to fix up a bunch of pieces.
I need to give a big "THANK YOU" to Bruce, who organizes this show every year, he stumbled on my lil' ol' blog while searching for a full Brasilia bed for his daughter. Bruce bought the bed and later was nice enough to send me a pair of tickets to the show (thanks again Bruce).
Some shot of a few booths to get the salivary glands watering
Charley Harper (the cool mid century artist, not the character that was played by Charlie Sheen on two and a half men) was a fixture at the show for quite some time. He is still well represented by his foundation and the two booths were so packed I could only get a couple usable pic.
This work below is an original painting by Charley Harper that; it was completed while he was attending "The Academy" (Cincinnati Art academy). It was the most expensive item at the show, $30,000.
Do you need some lights?
How about this glam dresser to reflect all those lights
Maybe you need a few Danish candle holders (whole collection was $350)
.All that walking around makes you want to sit.
Pretty sure that's not an Eames
It wasn't quite all mid Mod and deco. Check out this set of wooden pipe organ pipes. They have a sort-a tiki theme to the painting.
I really dug this great set of Redwing "Crazy Rhythm" china (I couldn't fit the serving pieces in the pic)
There were a ton of HUGE mouth watering vintage posters.
(my mother was a Woman Ordnance Worker during WW2-this sort-a looks like her)
Dig this early fifties Braun radio. So simple, minimalist and push button controls!
Why does the caged Joanna sing?
(she said that this would be the coolest bird cage, until it was full of bird crap)
This was a six foot tall Jare sculpture
Stay offthe drugs and the art you make when on the drugs
(Joanna said her sleep overs looked like the painting on the right...oooo-kay, then)
There was a special exhibit of bakelite products
Omg! (maybe even "omfg") look at all the colored Bakelite radios!
I thought this was so cool, the broach and then a life magazine cover with the same piece of jewelry.
